Color distortion on gstreamer 1.8.1 using imx6Q VPU encoding

Hi All:

We're using yocto-L4.1.15_2.0.0-ga with image recipe imx6qsabresd fsl-image-qt5 as the board's software platform. And we use it's gstreamer 1.8.1 to do some video record application. We use the imx6Q VPU to encode the video into H.264 video data stream and pack it into MP4 container. We display raw video directly on screen and it's alright, but we found H.264 video recorded not. There are some distorions on the color of H.264 video. You can compare the screen views in attached files: The original screen view picture is 1.png and the distorted picture is 2.png. We're confused with this issue and we've tried with two video capture cards from different manufacturers to confirm this issue. Both of the cards has the same issue. Do you have any suggestions on this issue?


Here's the scripts we used:

gst-launch-1.0 -e imxv4l2src device="/dev/video2" \
! "video/x-raw,width=(int)1280,height=(int)$720,format=(string)YV12,framerate=(fraction)60000/1000" \
! queue \
! vpuenc_h264 \
! mux. \

And also here's the video source input information:

# v4l2-ctl --device=/dev/video2 --all
