gstreamer-1.0

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hi, I purchased a NanoPi NEO AIR recently, and I've been trying to get
gstreamer1.0 to run and encode h264.

I've installed the gst-plugin-cedar but get the following logs:

GST_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0/ gst-launch-1.0 -ve videotestsrc ! cedar_h264enc ! h264parse ! matroskamux ! filesink location="cedar.mkv"

Caught SIGSEGV

It looks like the interesting part is "h264enc: can't allocate VE memory" - how can I remedy this?
Wow, it's been an experience.

I fixed up the Nano Pi NEO Air kernel here:

https://github.com/gtalusan/sun8i-linux ... 4a7d7e04d4

Ported gst-plugin-cedar to support H3 here:

https://github.com/gtalusan/gst-plugin-cedar

And now I can record 1080p from the CAM-500B with HW accelerated H264 encoding. gstreamer runs around 20-40% CPU and around 10% if I eliminate the memcpy inside of gst-plugin-cedar, but this is only possible if the DMA buffer between V4L2 and VFE/ION is shared, but this doesn't appear to be possible at the moment....
