How to stop multifilesink pipeline

Farzan
Hi,
I am new to Gstreamer, can anyone tell me how to set a timer or max number of files to end the following pipeline

gst-launch-0.10  v4l2src ! jpegenc ! multifilesink location="frame%d.jpg"

For example if I need only 10 frames what do I need to keep the pipeline from going on and stop after taking 10 frames.

You can use

  v4l2src num-buffers=10 ! ..

if you want to stop after 10 frames (not so easy to specify in time
units).

Also, please note that GStreamer 0.10 is ancient and unmaintained, you
should really upgrade to 1.0 instead.

Cheers

Hi Farzan,

"v4l2src num-buffers=10" should do the trick I think.

Thank you for the reply. Using num-buffers=10 works but there is one problem at times it captures less than 10 images. Do you know the reason why?
