Is there anything I am doing wrong? I am trying to attach the cropped cv::mat with object meta.

Hi,
Please share a patch so that we apply it to default gstdsexample.cpp and reproduce the failure. So that we can do further check.

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.
Thanks

Hi neuroSparK,

Is this still an issue to support? Or please share a patch so that we apply it to default gstdsexample.cpp and reproduce the failure.
