Purpose

This page provides example pipelines that can be copied to the command line to demonstrate various GStreamer operations. Some of the pipelines may need modification for things such as file names, ip addresses, etc.

It is our hope that people using this page will add new interesting pipelines that they themselves are using. For example, on DM6467 if you are decoding a 1080 video and outputing to component please include your pipeline for others to use as a reference.

Refer to this Gstreamer article for more information on downloading and building TI Gstreamer elements. The project is hosted at http://gstreamer.ti.com. If you are interested in understanding the design details then watch video presentation http://software-dl.ti.com/sdo/sdo_apps_public_sw/GStreamer_On_TI/FLV1/GStreamer_On_TI.htm

Testing

Currently these pipelines have not undergone any extensive testing. If you find an error in a pipeline please correct it.

Media files

You should be able to use any audio and video media file that conforms to the appropriate standard.

Creating an AVI file

The following ffmpeg command takes a .mov file (say from the Apple movie trailers site) and make an AVI file. Run the command on your host computer.

ffmpeg -i tropic_thunder-tlr1a_720p.mov -r 60 -b 6000000 -vcodec mpeg2video -ab 48000000 -acodec libmp3lame -s 1280x544 tropic.avi

Supported Platforms

Following are a list of supported platforms, with links that jump directly to pipeline examples for each platform.

DM355

This section covers pipelines for common use cases for the DM355 processor.

Environment Requirements

Before executing the pipeline you need to set couple of environment variables, load kernel modules and activate video planes as follows:

cd /opt/gstreamer_demo/dm355/
./loadmodules.sh
export GST_REGISTRY=/tmp/gst_registry.bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gstreamer/lib
export GST_PLUGIN_PATH=/opt/gstreamer/lib/gstreamer-0.10
export PATH=/opt/gstreamer/bin:$PATH
cat /dev/zero > /dev/fb2 2> /dev/null

The above command assumes that gstreamer is installed in /opt/gstreamer directory.

When the pipeline starts to run, you'll see something that looks like this:

/GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstUDPSink:udpsink0.GstPad:sink: caps = application/x-rtp, media=(string)video, clock-rate=(int)90000, encoding-name=(string)MP4V-ES, profile-level-id=(string)1, config=(string)000001010000012000845d4c28b421e0a21f, payload=(int)96, ssrc=(guint)3412089386, clock-base=(guint)945410414, seqnum-base=(guint)27711

Make a note of caps="application/x-rtp, media=(string)video ................" string and pass this string in client below

A simple RTP client to decode MPEG-4 and display on HOST machine

gst-launch -v udpsrc port=5000 caps="<PASS_CAPS_FROM_SERVER>" ! rtpmp4vdepay ! ffdec_mpeg4 ! xvimagesink

For sending and receiving MPEG-4 with DM355 EVM you can use these 2 pipelines :

RTP server side :

gst-launch -v videotestsrc !  TIVidenc1 codecName=mpeg4enc engineName=encode  ! rtpmp4vpay send-config=true ! udpsink host=<HOST IP ADDRESS> port=5000

Don't forget to set the "send-config" property to true


RTP client side :

gst-launch -v  udpsrc port=5000 caps="application/x-rtp, media=(string)video, clock-rate=(int)90000, encoding-name=(string)MP4V-ES, profile-level-id=(string)1, config=(string)000001010000012000845d4c285020f0a21f, payload=(int)96, ssrc=(guint)3319524202, clock-base=(guint)4012564513, seqnum-base=(guint)25833" ! rtpmp4vdepay  ! TIViddec2 codecName=mpeg4dec engineName=decode ! TIDmaiVideoSink videoStd=D1_PAL videoOutput=composite sync=false

Note that client should be started before server

cd /opt/gstreamer_demo/dm357/
./loadmodules.sh
export GST_REGISTRY=/tmp/gst_registry.bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gstreamer/lib
export GST_PLUGIN_PATH=/opt/gstreamer/lib/gstreamer-0.10
export PATH=/opt/gstreamer/bin:$PATH
cat /dev/zero > /dev/fb2 2> /dev/null

If you get a Could not open audio device for recording. error, likely your ALSA configuration is incorrect. I fixed it with

to move the ALSA configuration file out of the way.

Loopback: Audio+Video

Network Streaming

Audio RTP Streaming

Although these examples are using a target device and a host PC, you could use two target devices as well.

Case 1: sending audio from target (BeagleBoard in my case) to Ubuntu host:

On target:

gst-launch audiotestsrc freq=1000 ! mulawenc ! rtppcmupay ! udpsink host=<HOST_PC_IP> port=5555

On host:

gst-launch udpsrc port=5555 caps="application/x-rtp" ! queue ! rtppcmudepay ! mulawdec ! audioconvert ! alsasink

The above example experienced dropped audio, please update pipeline when you get it working properly.


Case 2: sending audio from Ubuntu host to target (BeagleBoard)

On host:

gst-launch audiotestsrc freq=1000 ! mulawenc ! rtppcmupay ! udpsink host=<TARGET_PC_IP>  port=5555

On target

gst-launch udpsrc port=5555 caps="application/x-rtp" ! queue ! rtppcmudepay ! mulawdec ! audioconvert ! alsasink


H.264 RTP Streaming

This section gives example where EVM acts as streaming server, which captures, encodes and transmit via udp. Host PC can be used as client to decode.

H.264 Encode/Stream/Decode A simple RTP server to encode and transmit H.264.

gst-launch -v videotestsrc ! TIVidenc1 codecName=h264enc engineName=codecServer ! rtph264pay pt=96 ! udpsink host=<HOST_PC_IP> port=5000

When the pipeline starts to run, you'll see something that looks like this:

 /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstUDPSink:udpsink0.GstPad:sink: caps = application/x-rtp, media=(string)video, clock-rate=(int)90000, encoding-name=(string)H264, profile-level-id=(string)42801e, sprop-parameter-sets=(string)\"Z0KAHukCg+QgAAB9AAAdTACA\\,aM48gA\\=\\=\", payload=(int)96, ssrc=(guint)3417130276, clock-base=(guint)2297521617, seqnum-base=(guint)48503

Make a note of caps="application/x-rtp, media=(string)video ................" string and pass this string in client below

A simple RTP client to decodes H.264 and display on HOST machine

gst-launch -v udpsrc port=5000 caps="<CAPS_FROM_SERVER>" ! rtph264depay ! ffdec_h264 ! xvimagesink


MPEG-4 Receive/Decode/Display:

This section gives example where EVM acts as RTP client, which receives encoded stream via udp then decodes and display output. Host PC can be used as server to transmit encoded stream.

A simple RTP server which encodes and transmits MPEG-4 on OMAP3530 EVM.

gst-launch-0.10  videotestsrc  ! 'video/x-raw-yuv,width=640,height=480' ! ffenc_mpeg4 ! rtpmp4vpay ! udpsink host=<EVM_IP_ADDR> port=5000  -v

Make a note of caps="application/x-rtp, media=(string)video ................" string and pass this string in client below

A simple RTP client to receive and decode the MPEG-4 encoded stream.

gst-launch -v udpsrc port=5000 caps="<CAPS_FROM_SERVER>" ! rtpmp4vdepay  ! TIViddec2 !  TIDmaiVideoSink videoStd=VGA videoOutput=LCD sync=false

All

This section covers pipelines that should work for all processors. These pipelines should work on any other platform too (such as your desktop Linux machine). They are included because we have been asked for these examples previously.

Debugging

Verbose output

If you want to see what capabilities are being used or are expected, add -v.

gst-launch -v alsasrc ! alsasink

Element debug output

To enable debug output for a specific element:

gst-launch --gst-debug=audiotestsrc:4   audiotestsrc ! alsasink

Adjust the element name and debug level until you get the data you are looking for.

To enable debug output for a more than one element:

gst-launch --gst-debug=audio*:3  audiotestsrc ! audioconvert ! alsasink

or for all elements

gst-launch --gst-debug=*:3  alsasrc ! alsasink

You can see the list of element names that support debug output using

gst-launch --gst-debug-help

Audio pipelines

Controlling the sample rate and bit depth

Find the default audio capabilities:

gst-launch -v alsasrc ! alsasink

The output will be similar to

caps = audio/x-raw-int, endianness=(int)1234, signed=(boolean)true, width=(int)32, depth=(int)32, rate=(int)44100, channels=(int)2

Using that pattern (minus the data type indication, which is not needed with gst-launch):

gst-launch -v alsasrc ! audio/x-raw-int, endianness=1234, signed=true, width=32, depth=32, rate=44100, channels=2 ! alsasink

Adjust the capabilities as needed.

Generic network audio streaming example

These pipelines do not depend on the TI DMAI GSteamer plug-in.

Sender (host):

TARGET_IP=10.111.0.194
gst-launch audiotestsrc freq=1000 ! mulawenc ! rtppcmupay ! queue ! udpsink host=$TARGET_IP port=5555

Receiver (target):

gst-launch udpsrc port=5555 caps="application/x-rtp" ! queue ! rtppcmudepay !  mulawdec  ! alsasink
