Is vpudec plugin for gstreamer available in imx8dx SOC ? We are not seeing the vpudec listed using gst-inspect.
Gstreamer version gstreamer-0.10.36
Software - 4.14.98 kernel and yocto release. SOC - imx8dx.
v4l2h264dec is harsware based decoder?
Why VPUdec is not available/
what are all the hardware VPU based decoder can be used?
Gstreamer version gstreamer-1.14.4

1. Our VPU driver follows the V4L2 framework, so it will provide a V4L2 device for user space application to use.
The Gstreamer plugin "v4l2h264dec" will use the V4L2 device our VPU driver provided. So these are two seperated things but connected.
2. For the problem you are facing, I think that may related to the Gstreamer plugin "v4l2h264dec". Because from our VPU work flow, it will not have this problem.
Pleaese check Chapter 3 Amphion VPU Interface in our BSP release document "i.MX_VPU_Application_Programming_Interface_Linux_Reference_Manual.pdf".
