nvcamerasrc is not found

I’ve installed arm64v8/ubuntu:16.04 and all the dependencies on the Jetson TX2.

When trying to get the camera feed from OpenCV, the gstreamer plugin “nvcamerasrc” is not found. How can I install it please?


Have you installed a L4T(Linux for Tegra) version ? What gives? :

head -n 1 /etc/nv_tegra_release

For checking your install, you may also check the result of:

sha1sum -c /etc/nv_tegra_release

For using gstreamer plugin nvcamerasrc, in the output of previous command you should see:

/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/tegra/libnvcamerautils.so: OK

and further have library


I haven’t installed L4T, just the drivers.

I have

but not

I found the gstreamer plugin, was in the nv_sample_apps folder in the driver package
