Unable to record a video using deepstream-testsr on Jetson Orin Nano

I’ve been trying to port my own smart recording examples to run on an Orin Nano using the sw encoder, but I’m unable to record a playable video.

So I tried with the deepstream_testsr and I get the same results. I’m using the following command to run.

deepstream-testsr-app rtsp://admin:password@ --enc-type=1 --sr-mode=1

The pipeline plays and the video is rendered correctly. But the recordings, when played back, just show a green screen.

Here’s the log file

And here’s one of the saved recordings, on the chance it may help.

Am I missing a step required to use the sw encoders?


thanks for the sharing! I can reproduce this issue on Orin with DS6.4. I are investigating.

sorry for the late reply! there is a nvvideoconvert bug. we will fix this bug in the latter versions.
here is a workaround in this sample, replace two nvvideoconvert with nvvidconv.

@fanzh, is there any kind of ETA for when this might git fixed, or when the next release is? I’m trying to decide if it’s worth working around this issue, or if I should just wait.


sorry, there is no public ETA. please pay attention to the DeepStream release notification.
what is your company name? Maybe you can contact sales or after-sales.

Thanks @fanzh , I will inquire through my Inception contacts.
