USB camera and the imx6slevk (i.mx6 solo lite evaluation kit)

Hello,

I am using an imx6slevk board with yocto 3.10.17_1.0.0 GA (I also tried 3.10.17_1.0.2).

 

I successfully compiled and installed several yocto images and included several additional packages into those images, including:

gst-fsl-plugin, gst-meta-base, gstreamer, gst-plugins-base, gst-plugins-good, gst-plugins-bad

but in no case I was able to have the v4l2src plugin that is required to use an USB camera with gstreamer, according to several documents, including this one: Using a USB Camera with GStreamer

 

Notice that my camera gets perfectly recognized by the kernel (this is what dmesg says and it is also confirmed by the fact that the /dev/video1 file appears when I plug the camera): What I am missing is the right gstreamer plugin to access it.

 

Any suggestion? What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks in advance

G.
