I was previously using OV2311 sensor in Jetson TX2. This sensor outputs GRAY8 and I will convert it to YUV format using NV video converter. The gstreamer pipeline goes like,
gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src ! "video/x-raw,format=GRAY8" ! nvvidconv ! "video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),format=I420" ! nvoverlaysink
Now, when I’m trying to port the sensor to Jetson Xavier L4T-32.1, I’m not able to convert the GRAY8 to I420 and getting the following errors,
WARNING: erroneous pipeline: could not link v4l2src0 to nvvconv0, nvvconv0 can’t handle caps video/x-raw, format=(string)GRAY8
On running gst-inspect-1.0, I found that nvvidconv plugin no longer supports GRAY8 format.
Can I know why the GRAY8 support has been deprecated?
Is there any plan on adding GRAY8 support?
