Problem with gstreamer on Nitrogen6x

Question asked by hkh on Apr 22, 2014
Latest reply on Oct 15, 2014 by tao chen

Hello Otavio, Leonardo, and Daiane,


Sorry about not having a separate thread for my question. This time I used "Start a discussion", and I hope this is what you meant by starting a new thread. I am not familiar with all the ways a question could be posted on this community. If this is not the right place, please provide more direction as what to do next time.


In my last post in Yocto Project main page I explained the problem I was having with mesa, and I understand that a patch is now applied to Dora branch...


I am using Dora branch of Yocto with Nitrogen6x from BoundaryDevices. The board is populated with iMX6 Solo processor.

The Linux version used is 3.0.35-4.1.0, and the image name printed on the console is:



The board came with an SD Card that had a Timesys demo on it. I could get the MIPI camera video to display on the LCD with this command:

$ gst-launch mfw_v4lsrc capture-mode=5 ! mfw_v4lsink disp-width=1280 disp-height=800


With the Yocto image that I built, I can't get the gstreamer to work. This is the error I am getting:

I tried different variations such as using the same options I used for the Timesys build, but I keep getting the same error.


The is the complete console dump on startup:

Any idea what might be wrong?
