Manipulate data between omxmjpegdec and omxh264enc with a fifo on PI 3?

Hi,

Not sure if it makes sense about what I tried to do, for example, below worked fine as I was able to pipe in mjpeg from the IP camera on raspi3 to an external rtmp channel:

ffmpeg -i "rtsp://xxxx" -vcodec copy -f mjpeg -y - | \
gst-launch-1.0 \
-v fdsrc fd=0 \
! "image/jpeg,width=1280, height=720,framerate=25/1" \
! jpegparse \
! omxmjpegdec \
! omxh264enc \
! h264parse \
! queue \
! flvmux streamable=true \
! queue \
! rtmpsink location="rtmp://yyyy"

However, when I placed a fifo between omxmjpegdec and omxh264enc

For example

Session 1:

mkfifo

ffmpeg \
-i "rtsp://xxxx" -vcodec copy -f mjpeg -y - | \
gst-launch-1.0 \
-v fdsrc fd=0 \
! "image/jpeg,width=1280, height=720,framerate=25/1" \
! jpegparse \ ! omxmjpegdec \ ! filesink location=myfifo

And Session 2:

tail -F myfifo |
gst-launch-1.0 \
-v fdsrc \
! omxh264enc \
! h264parse \
! queue \
! flvmux streamable=true \
! queue \
! rtmpsink location="rtmp://yyyy"


Session 2 hung on 'Pipeline is PREROLLING...'. I could see session 1 worked fine as it did keep feeding data to the fifo. I am guessing maybe in session 2 I need to provide perhaps some sort of data format before it gets chaining into omxh264enc; I inserted "video/x-raw,width=1280, height=720,framerate=25/1" but no luck. Reason for placing a fifo is basically a trial to see whether I could manipulate the data before piping into omxh264enc, and I am stuck already in first step with fifo so perhaps such approach isn't going to work and I just wanted to know so I can start looking around other approach.

Many thanks and hope someone could help here.

Hello, 


Try to look on probe.

You can drop from stream.

Hi,

Not sure if it makes sense about what I tried to do, for example, below worked fine as I was able to pipe in jmpeg from the IP camera on raspi3 to an external rtmp channel:

ffmpeg -i "rtsp://xxxx" -vcodec copy -f mjpeg -y - | \
gst-launch-1.0 \
-v fdsrc fd=0 \
! "image/jpeg,width=1280, height=720,framerate=25/1" \
! jpegparse \
! omxmjpegdec \
! omxh264enc \
! h264parse \
! queue \
! flvmux streamable=true \
! queue \
! rtmpsink location="rtmp://yyyy"

However, when I placed a fifo between omxmjpegdec and omxh264enc

For example

Session 1:

mkfifo

ffmpeg \

gst-launch-1.0 \
-v fdsrc fd=0 \
! "image/jpeg,width=1280, height=720,framerate=25/1" \
! jpegparse \ ! omxmjpegdec \ ! filesink location=myfifo

Hi,

you fifo is probably stream-based, so it will destroy the packetisation of the decoded video data where 1 buffer = 1 frame = certain constant/fixed amount of bytes, which is what an h264 encoder will expect.

Cheers
