GStreamer and UDP broadcast issues on iMX6 board

Hello all,


I'm attempting to broadcast a stream over UDP with Gstreamer on an iMX6 board (IMX6Q). When I do unicast it works great, but as soon as I try to do it towards a UDP broadcast address the video gets choppy and the board unresponsive. I've tried a similar pipeline from a laptop and don't have issues.


In order to reproduce this problem:


1. On the iMX6 board, run the following pipeline:

gst-launch imxv4l2src capture-mode=0 ! vpuenc codec=6 ! rtph264pay ! udpsink host= port=5000


2. On the receiving end, run the following pipeline:

gst-launch udpsrc port=5000 ! application/x-rtp, payload=96 ! rtpjitterbuffer ! rtph264depay ! avdec_h264 ! xvimagesink


- I've tested both with ethernet and wifi and had similar issues

- Same issue with local net broadcast ( and

- I'm running with a Yocto Dizzy with kernel 3.14.28


Is there an issue with UDP broadcast at the iMX level ?

Any configuration settings or kernel options I'm missing ?


Thank you !
