Streaming from Analog Video Input VADC using gstreamer (i.MX 6SoloX)

I am using the new single board computer UDOO NEO full (UDOO Neo - UDOO) which is equipped with the i.MX 6SoloX and I would like to stream from the analog video input VADC using gstreamer (protocol not important, encoding preferably H.264). I have installed the recommended Linux distribution UDOObuntu2 (based on lubuntu 14.04 LTS armHF) and now I am struggling with the usage of gstreamer. In the UDOO Forum they say, this interface is not yet implemented, but perhaps someone of you could help me, or give me a few hints how to use gstreamer on the i.MX 6SoloX.


To my knowledge, the i.MX 6SoloX has no Hardware-Encoding-Unit (VPU?!), so is it necessary to install the gstreamer-imx package (gstreamer-imx/ at master · Freescale/gstreamer-imx · GitHub)?


With an USB-Camera (/dev/video1) the standard v4l2src is working, but I can't show anything from the VADC (/dev/video0) with v4l2src. Do I need imxv4l2videosrc to get access to the VADC?


I already managed it to create a network stream with the USB-Camera, by using vlc. But for my project, I also should be able to implement the streaming in C at some point and therefore gstreamer provides some libraries. So at first I would like to create a network stream by using the command line with gstreamer and of course not from the USB-Camera but from the VADC.


I really need help.


Thank you very much!!
