From various descriptions and recent webinar on DeepStream SDK 3.0 (slide #7), I got the impression that the SDK contains both video decoder and encoders for use together in a full pipeline as driven by GStreamer. These would be in the form of GStreamer plugins accessing the NVDEC and NVENC feature blocks. But there does not seem to be any video encoders included among the NVIDIA GStreamer plugins, only a set of decoders. Note that I did only look in the SDK for Tesla (actually through the official docker image) and not in the SDK variant for Jetson, which might include such encoders through the “usual” omx* plugins. In our case, we are looking for a solution running on Tesla and similar workstation and data center GPUs (e.g. Quadro).
This is really part of a broader question, i.e. what is the official way to integrate NVENC video encoding with GStreamer on any NVIDIA GPU platform but I might post that separately (and in another forum)…
