Description Eddy Zavaleta 2011-04-27 07:19:48 UTC
Gstreamer apps like Cheese (media-video/cheese) which uses v4l2src and ffmpegcolorspace in the pipeline are not working.

I know v4l2 is working right because I am using GUVCViewer (media-video/guvcview) without problems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install media-libs/gst-plugins-base-0.10.32 and media-plugins/gst-plugins-v4l2-0.10.28-r1
2. Open a terminal
3. Execute "gst-launch-0.10 -v v4l2src ! ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink"

Actual Results:  
No window is displayed.

Expected Results:  
It should display a window with the capture from my camera.
Camera capture is shown if you remove ffmpegcolorspace part from the pipeline:
$ gst-launch-0.10 -v v4l2src ! xvimagesink
This works as expected.

gst-launch output

Output from
$ gst-launch-0.10 -v v4l2src ! ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink
Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2011-04-28 17:03:50 UTC
I can't reproduce on my system with my gspca webcam.

"WARNING: from element /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstV4l2Src:v4l2src0: Got unexpected frame size of 262529 instead of 614400." looks to be the suspect; perhaps xvimagesink could handle that mmap memory and ffmpegcolorspace not with your v4l2src chosen video caps or something of that sort.

Maybe the output of

GST_DEBUG=*:5,GST_REGISTRY:2 gst-launch-0.10 -v v4l2src num-buffers=1 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink

could get us further?

Output using GST_DEBUG=*:5,GST_REGISTRY:2

I'm using a macbook pro with isight built-in camera.
Comment 4 Benedikt Reinartz 2011-07-07 12:30:18 UTC
I also have this problem on a Macbook 1,1. Substituting ffmpegcolorspace by videoscale gives the same results. According to the Ubuntu Bugtracker this is a kernel bug:

Does anyone have a kernel where this setup actually works? Mine is 2.6.39.
Comment 5 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2019-06-22 08:48:20 UTC
gstreamer 0.10 has been finally removed from the tree. If this is an issue with the 1.0 series too, please file a new bug against that version.
