NvMedia samples license

I made a module to record a stream of openCV images into H264 based on the vid_enc sample from NvMedia.
But in order to integrate it into a product of my company, we need to obtain a permission as stated on the header of the sample :

 * Copyright (c) 2013-2018 NVIDIA Corporation.  All rights reserved.
 * NVIDIA Corporation and its licensors retain all intellectual property
 * and proprietary rights in and to this software and related documentation
 * and any modifications thereto.  Any use, reproduction, disclosure or
 * distribution of this software and related documentation without an express
 * license agreement from NVIDIA Corporation is strictly prohibited.

I guess any work based on the sample requires to obtain such agreement, even if parts of the code are modified.
Why is there such limitation on the NvMedia sample codes?
How can we obtain such agreement?

Hi delmotte,

I’m not sure if any license issue on this sample code, and forward this requirement to relevant team to investigate, please stay tuned.


@kayccc Any update on this topic?

Hi @kayccc I am also interested in this information. Did you find anything?


Sorry for the late response!

We have passed this issue to our legal team for reviewing if it requires the license agreement or not, please stay tuned.

Hi delmotte,

Sorry for the late response, please check below answers for the license issue:

Yes, because the original code is Nvidia’s IP, an license from Nvidia is required. The sample code is provided for internal test and development only.

Because the sample code is Nvidia’s IP.

The company should contact their Nvidia Account Manager to open discussions.
