media-ctl, v4l and GStreamer

Post by TenApe » Mon Jul 20, 2020 12:22 pm

I've seen the other post about gstreamer and accessing the hdmi input.

I was wondering if media-ctl can expose the HDMI input as a v4l2 src as a device node? If this is the case we should be able to use the v4l2src plugin from gstreamer.

If this is not the case if hdmirx-capture is open source it should be possible to create a new gstreamer plugin based on it.

Hi TenApe,

The HDMI Input should already be working like this - please see the hdmirx demo application: ... ls/hdmirx/

If this isn't what you're after, please could you clarify?
