Problem with Jetson camera operation

Hello All,
Rescently I have bought Jetracer for a project in Uni. But I am experiencing difficulties to set up the camera with the Jetson Nano. I am getting the following errors while trying to capture a picture.

jetson@nano-4gb-jp451:~$ nvgstcapture-1.0 --orientation=2Encoder null, cannot set bitrate!Encoder Profile = High

Did you confirm the sensor driver by v4l2-ctl?

Thanks for the quick response!

Confirm capturing by below command.

v4l2-ctl --set-fmt-video=width=3264,height=2464,pixelformat=RG12 --set-ctrl bypass_mode=0 --stream-mmap

After executing this command, nothing happens.

Enable the debug print in csi2_fops.c/vi2_fops.c to check.

Hello,
I am sorry for bothering you. The problem was in the camera that Waveshare sent me. I have bought another one and it worked. Seems the Raspberry that I have tried didn’t catch the fault in the camera.

Thanks again for the help!

Regards,
Ilia Panayotov
