GStreamer support on OpenCV

I am using latest Openvino toolkit on Linux with Python.

I need to use the GStreamer pipeline in cv.VideoCapture(), but the OpenCV is built without GStreamer support.

Is there simple way to replace the OpenCV library without damaging Openvino installation?

Do I need to compile OpenCV from source or some packages are available for Ubuntu?

Dear Artych, Rafał,

Please redirect your OpenCV questions to this forum:

https://answers.opencv.org/questions/

The current Intel Developer Zone forum is meant for OpenVino questions related to Model Optimizer and Inference Engine.

And yes, it's super easy to drop in a new OpenCV into the OpenVino package. The key is setting OpenCV_DIR appropriately. More details here:

https://github.com/opencv/open_model_zoo/blob/master/demos/README.md

Many customers have used different versions of OpenCV with their OpenVino installation. Doing so will not break anything.

Thanks,

Shubha

Hi Rafał,

I am trying to understand how you want to create a video analytics pipeline, are you doing input->decode->inference?

If you want to use OpenCV as the integration framework, you can check OpenCV document as Shubha directed.

If you want to stick on GStreamer, we have a Gstreamer plugin for OpenVINO:

OpenCV in OpenVINO should be built with GStreamer support, please check whether you have "libopencv_videoio_gstreamer.so" in "<openvino>/opencv/lib" directory.

Thank you for all comments and suggestions.

What I actually do is applying Openvino analytics on "headless" machine - it needs to get video stream from remote camera and output results to remote displays.

According to getBuildInformation() results OpenCV is built without GStreamer support, but have FFmpeg library available.

I have managed to capture RTP stream, but there is lack of information about setting FFmpeg library parameters from OpenCV (I know it is OpenCV related issue).

Are you sure you are using OpenCV from OpenVINO? I have following output in the latest package (2020.1 / Ubuntu 18):

  Video I/O:
    FFMPEG:                      YES
      avcodec:                   YES (57.107.100)
      avformat:                  YES (57.83.100)
      avutil:                    YES (55.78.100)
      swscale:                   YES (4.8.100)
      avresample:                YES (3.7.0)
    GStreamer:                   YES (1.14.5)
    v4l/v4l2:                    YES (linux/videodev2.h)
    Intel Media SDK:             YES (/mnt/nfs/msdk/lin-18.4.1/lib64/libmfx.so)
