Yocto can not get UVC camera video output

Contributor I

I tried the Qt Camera example on Yocto.
Run it then got these errors:

ERROR: v4l2 capture: slave not found!

(camera:1348): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance

(camera:1348): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_object_sink: assertion 'GST_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

Device: im6qsbd
Yocto 1.6.2

 Camera plugged in:

root@imx6qsabresd:/home# usb 1-1.3: USB disconnect, device number 6

I followed this Using a USB Camera with GStreamer still got the same error.

Instead of using gst-launch

gst-launch imxv4l2src ! imxv4l2sink

gst-launch-1.0 is worked great!

gst-launch-1.0 imxv4l2src ! imxv4l2sink 

So I changed local.conf from

PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-qtmultimedia = "gstreamer gst-plugins-base"


PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-qtmultimedia = "gstreamer010 gst-plugins-base"

But the Qt camera program got the new error:

defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.camera"
Camera error: "The camera service is missing"

Looks like GStreamer010 could work well, but Qt can't recognise it.

So How to indicate GStreamer version for Qt.

If have any idea about this, please share it.

Hello Wigros Sun

I tried the document but still got the same error.

I Googled the error looks like I missed some GStreamer’s plugin.
