I’m currently developing using DeepStream 6.2 on a Jetson Orin NX platform. The model we’re working with is an ONNX model that requires multiple non-static inputs. Consequently, I had to customize gst-nvinfer and nvdsinfer to enable the required functionality.

I’m interested in understanding the process for using these modified sources in commercial services. Specifically, I’m wondering whether such modifications are entirely prohibited or if they can be permitted through a licensing agreement with NVIDIA. If a licensing agreement is possible, I’m also curious about the steps involved in initiating and completing this agreement process.

Thank you!

Gst-nvdspreprocess (Alpha) — DeepStream 6.2 Release documentation can be used for such case. You need to customize the preprocess library according to your own model.

The license declaration in /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream/sources/gst-plugins/gst-nvdspreprocess/vdspreprocess_lib is MIT license. Please check.

Thank you so much for your response, Fiona.Chen.

Additionally, I’m curious to know if it’s permissible for commercial purposes to modify the gst-nvinfer or nvdsinfer plugins to add another features or modify some code.

Please refer to DeepStream End User License Agreement — DeepStream documentation 6.4 documentation
