Problem creating an CSI-cam inference pipeline( Arducam IMX477 and Jetson NX)

Hi guys,

I have an issue, I was implementing Deepstream app using Arducam IMX477, however when i run any deepstream app, no camera launch appears. Could you pls suggest what can be reason for that?

If am not mistaken, I need to modify create_camera_source_bin file, but i dont know what to modify there.

See below logs from command prompt.

The log seems fine. Why do you say “no camera launch appears.”?

Can you provide your platform information?

**• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU)**
**• DeepStream Version**
**• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only)**
**• TensorRT Version**
**• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version (valid for GPU only)**

I agree, but camera launch does not appearing, however when I run below command, it comes up.

gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! nvegltransform ! nveglglessink 

I am using Jetpack 4.5.1 on the Xavier NX.

Do you mean there is nothing displayed on screen? Are you using deepstream-app sample app?

Yes, nothing pops up on the screen, Yes i am using deepstream-app sample app.

Can you upload the deepstream-app config file?

deepstream-app -c /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-5.1/samples/configs/deepstream-app/source1_csi_dec_infer_resnet_int8.txt

Seems camera does not work correctly.
You should set “camera-csi-sensor-id” for your CSI camera.
