How to set imx6 camera resolution with gstreamer

Question asked by hkh on May 5, 2014

I am using a Nitrogen6x development board with a Solo processor and a 5MP MIPI camera. I can capture video and JPEG frames using gst-launch. I can change the camera resolution using "capture-mode" option, but the resolutions are limited.


How do I expand the capture-mode options (or is there another way of setting the camera output resolution)? For example, how can I capture a 5MP frame?


Is there any limit to the frame resolution that can be captured from a MIPI camera? I understand at some point the frame rate drops as the resolution increases, and some of that has to do with MIPI lanes/speed and possibly VPU capability. But, is there anything that prevents receiving 5MP frames? How about 8 or 12MP frames (with different MIPI cameras, of course)?


I am using Yocto Dora build.

CPU: IMX6 Solo

Board: Nitrogen6x from Boundardevices

Camera: 5MP MIPI camera from Boundarydevices
