Saving video streams

Hello, here’s my hardware setup

• Hardware Platform: Jetson
• DeepStream Version: 5.0 dp
• JetPack Version: 4.4
• TensorRT Version: 7.1/OSS

We’ve developed a Deepstream pipeline using the python bindings. It receives 3 simultaneous streams from USB cameras (Intel RealSense d435/d435i, if it helps), and uses Transfer Learning Toolkit’s models for inference and further transfer to a custom Kivy App. We’ve managed to get the following pipeline working:

Now we want to add saving capabilities for the streams. The idea is to use deepstream/gstreamer elements. We’ve tried the following pipeline, (which is not working):

It fails with the following error:

0:00:03.591168720 28935     0x36507800 ERROR                default video-frame.c:175:gst_video_frame_map_id: invalid buffer size 64 < 1382400

Is the above design right? The idea is to save the images for further post-processing, which is why I’d like to avoid writing videos.
In case it’s not, is it feasible for a high throughput pipeline (3x30 fps) to save the images using something similar to https://github.com/NVIDIA-AI-IOT/deepstream_python_apps/tree/master/apps/deepstream-imagedata-multistream.

Thanks!

Per the log, seems H/W buffer is fed to encoder plugin which requires S/W buffer input.
Why you need both gstvideoconvert and nvvdieoconvert, is it possible to remove the gstvideoconvert and only use nvvdieoconvert and set caps accordingly per the requirement.
