Hi all,

We have a platform with MX51/Linux-2.6.31.

The video input is from a TVP5150 chip in Bt.656 mode.

The working pipeline is as follows:

gst-launch mfw_v4lsrc sensor-width=720 sensor-height=288 capture-width=640 capture-height=480 preview=true preview-width=640 preview-height=480 ! 'video/x-raw-yuv, format=(fourcc)NV12, width=640, height=480, framerate=25/1' ! clockoverlay ! mfw_vpuencoder codec-type=std_avc width=640 height=480 ! filesink location=video.264

Everything  goes well with the above pipeline.

However, if we try to set the 'preview' property of mfw_v4lsrc to false,

the pipeline does not report any error, but the image /video we get in the file sink is not correct as desired.

IMHO,  the preview / display module in IPU should not have anything to do with the video capture.

But the fact seems my opinion is wrong.

How to explain this?

Is it possible to disable preview while capturing video?

OK. We have solved the problem.

In the source code of mfw_v4lsrc,  VIDIOC_S_CROP is not called when 'preview' property is false.

This ioctl sets the crop region of the active video output, which finally sets the CSIx_ACT_FRM_SIZE register.

After adding such a ioctl call even if 'preview=false' in the source code of mfw_v4lsrc element,

we can get the video stream from mfw_v4lsrc correctly.

You need to modify the source code of the 'mfw_v4lsrc' element,

by adding a ioctl(VIDOC_S_CROP,xxx) call even when 'preview==false'.

And rebuild the mfw_v4lsrc element, of course.
