Tx1 onboard camera

i’m trying to run my code using onboard camera, but there’s error.

my code is

import cv2

print(cv2.version)
gst_str = ("nvarguscamerasrc ! video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), format=NV12, width=640, height=480, framerate=30/1 ! "
"nvvidconv ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGRx ! "
"videoconvert ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGR ! "

              "appsink")

vidcap = cv2.VideoCapture(gst_str, cv2.CAP_GSTREAMER)
success,image = vidcap.read()
count = 0
success = True
while success:
cv2.imwrite(“frame%d.jpg” % count, image) # save frame as JPEG file
success,image = vidcap.read()
print ('Read a new frame: ', success)
count += 1

but when i run this code,

what should i do?

Hi,
You may try this code:


This code shows preview. You may refer to it and debug further.

when i run
$ gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! ‘video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=(int)1920, height=(int)1080,format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)30/1’ ! nvoverlaysink

Setting pipeline to PAUSED …
Pipeline is live and does not need PREROLL …
Setting pipeline to PLAYING …

this error comes out
what’s wrong with it…?

Hi,
It looks like the camera cannot be launched. You may try a simplified pipeline:

$ gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! nvoverlaysink

when i try
gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! nvoverlaysink

it works well.
but after that, if i run

import sys
import cv2

def read_cam():
cap = cv2.VideoCapture(“nvarguscamerasrc ! video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=(int)1920, height=(int)1080,format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)30/1 ! nvvidconv ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGRx ! videoconvert ! appsink”)
if cap.isOpened():
cv2.namedWindow(“demo”, cv2.WINDOW_AUTOSIZE)
while True:
ret_val, img = cap.read();
cv2.imshow(‘demo’,img)
cv2.waitKey(10)
else:
print (“camera open failed”)

cv2.destroyAllWindows()

if name == ‘main’:
read_cam()

this code on your link,

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

same error comes out…

Hi,
You may try other resolutions such as 1280x720 or 640x480. The onboard camera(ov5693) can run in 1920x1080 but somehow it fails on your TX1.

For information, please share your release version( $ head -1 /etc/nv_tegra_release )

here is my version
R32 (release), REVISION: 3.1, GCID: 18186506, BOARD: t210ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Tue Dec 10 06:58:34 UTC 2019

my camera works well now!
thanks!!
