Passing kinect v1 webcam (RGB image only) to other programs


I am doing an inference project on my TX2 and would like to use the RGB camera of the kinect v1 as the image source, rather than the onboard TX2 camera. I have spent many hours looking at different drivers and plugins but not been able to figure it out, mostly due to ongoing build failures of the drivers.

Then I thought maybe I was overcomplicating things. Is there a way to simply pass the kinect v1 stream as a gst-launch-1.0 pipeline and both view it and use it in programs?

Thank you!


Suppose you can read an image data with the libraries from Kinect.
And then pass the data pointer to the CUDA application directly.

Here is a library for your reference:
