pipeline problem with Arducam


First i have installed ‘cv2’ package, next i have cloned python code to run ‘Arducam’ or ‘CSI’ camera from here


Next i have tured off Jeston, connect camera, turn jetson on and run this command as it says in ‘readme.md’

“gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! ‘video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),width=3820, height=2464, framerate=21/1, format=NV12’ ! nvvidconv flip-method=0 ! ‘video/x-raw,width=960, height=616’ ! nvvidconv ! nvegltransform ! nveglglessink -e”

the output this

Setting pipeline to PAUSED …

Using winsys: x11
Pipeline is live and does not need PREROLL …

Also there are some python files like “simple_camera.py” or "face_detect.py "
When I run

" python simple_camera.py "

the output is

nvarguscamerasrc ! video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=(int)2592, height=(int)1944, format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)30/1 ! nvvidconv flip-method=0 ! video/x-raw, width=(int)1280, height=(int)720, format=(string)BGRx ! videoconvert ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGR ! appsink
Unable to open camera

Also I have checked cameras with raspberry pi and they work well.

I think problem is with piplines, please help.

Check is any video node in the /dev
ls /dev/video*

Check the sensors format.
v4l2-ctl --list-formats-ext

I have checked there is no video node in


it says

ls: cannot access ‘/dev/video*’: No such file or directory

the same for


When I run

v4l2-ctl --list-formats


v4l2-ctl --list-formats-ext

the output is

Failed to open /dev/video0: No such file or director

The device not even probe on the system.
You need to contact to Arducam to get the correct driver to get the camera working.
