i.MX7D, gstreamer-1.0, imx gstreamer plugin v0.12.3



In my on-going battle to get an AD7280M (csi-mipi) working on an i.MX7 I have reached the point whereby occasionally I can capture an image (albeit wrong colors), but only if I use the v4l2src. I cannot get the 'imxv4l2videosrc' to work.


I have inspected the 'imxv4l2videosrc' using, 

gst-inspect-1.0 imxv4l2videosrc

and it shows the following:

Factory Details:
   Rank primary (256)
   Long-name V4L2 CSI Video Source
   Klass Source/Video

   Name imxv4l2videosrc
   Description GStreamer i.MX V4L2 CSI video source

   Version 0.12.3

So there are no capabilities listed with the 'video/x-raw' ??? Anybody any ideas why???
