v4lsrc for yuv sensor

Hi,

Recently, I flashed my Jetson TX1 with the latest Jetpack 2.3, and the following command works perfectly for a new yuv sensor 

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 -w --verbose --set-fmt-video=width=1280,height=1080,pixelformat=UYVY --set-ctrl bypass_mode=0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=1 --stream-to=test.yuv

I can use this command to capture a normal picture, but when I use the followed gstreamer command to capture the streaming, a error occured

gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! ‘video/x-raw,format=(string)UYVY,width=(int)1280,(int)height=1080,framerate=(fraction)30/1’ ! filesink location=test.yuv

ERROR: from element /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstV4l2Src:v4l2src0: Internal data flow error.

Due to the yuv sensor has a supporting ISP, so I don’t use the TX1 internal ISP, what could I do to successfully run this command?

Hi cloudliu
Could you try format=(string)I420 instead of format=(string)UYVY and could you share your modification for the YUV sensor for helping others user can reference to.

Why trying format=(string)I420 instead of format=(string)UYVY? The sensor outputs UYVY image data!

Suppose the key point is the gst element v4l2src.

Hi ShaneCCC,

the followed gstreamer command to capture the streaming not works,

Test environment is jet 3.0 r27 (TX2).

Could you try

gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device="/dev/video0" ! "video/x-raw,width=1920,height=1080, format=(string)I420" ! nvvidconv ! "video/x-raw(memory:NVMM)" ! nvoverlaysink

I did like

gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device="/dev/video0" ! "video/x-raw,width=1920,height=1080, format=(string)I420" ! nvvidconv ! "video/x-raw(memory:NVMM)" !  filesink location=yes.bayer

yes.bayer file’ size is 0 byte

@johlim
There’s no problem to get data on reference sensor.
Does v4l2-ctl get the frame data normally?
Any error kernel message?

I tested with TX2 developement Kit 's Camera Sensor
and I can get a frame data using v4l2-ctl.
Looking at that file as a hexeditor, ff 3f is repeated. (the folled ov1080.raw)
There is no kernel error message

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --set-fmt-video=width=1920,height=1080,pixelformat=RG10  --set-ctrl bypass_mode=0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=1 --stream-to=ov1080.raw

gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device=/dev/video0 num-buffers=10 ! 'video/x-bayer,format=rggb,width=1920,height=1080' ! identity silent=false ! filesink location=test.bayer

gst-launch-1.0 -v filesrc blocksize=5038848 num-buffers=4 location=test.bayer ! 'video/x-bayer,format=rggb,width=2592,height=1944,framerate=30/1' ! bayer2rgb ! filesink location=test.rgb

22118400 Jul 21 05:15 test.bayer

The the reference sensor board have problem at first two maybe three frame, you can try --stream-count=4 then you can see the difference.

Thansk
The contents of file ov1080.raw changed from offset 0x3F4800 (skiped 2 frame)

the test.bayer file is filled with zero

and

I excutes your script (gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device="/dev/video0" ! “video/x-raw,width=1920,height=1080, format=(string)I420” ! nvvidconv ! “video/x-raw(memory:NVMM)” ! nvoverlaysink) again, but There is no change on the hdmi screen.

@johlim
That’s as expect if you try those two gst-launch command with reference sensor board, because it’s bayer sensor these two command are not go to ISP so it couldn’t have problem show on the HDMI or dump to file. But for the YUV sensor it should have no problem with these two command.
