gst-rpicamsrc is a GStreamer wrapper around the raspivid/raspistill
functionality of the RaspberryPi, providing a GStreamer
source element capturing from the Rpi camera.
** rpicamsrc has moved **
GStreamer 1.18 will include rpicamsrc directly. The GStreamer git master repository already
includes it, plus fixes beyond this tree. Future development will happen directly in the
GStreamer repositories, and this tree archived.
To use it, you need GStreamer 1.0. As of the last time this README
was updated, Raspbian Jessie has GStreamer 1.4.4, which is recent enough.
Install the GStreamer 1.0 dev packages, then just build and install this module.
apt-get install autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libgstreamer1.0-dev \
libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev libraspberrypi-dev
For example, again on Raspbian:
./ --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/
sudo make install
Then, you can try out the camera with a pipeline line:
gst-launch-1.0 rpicamsrc bitrate=1000000 ! filesink location=test.h264
should produce a file called test.h264, while showing a preview window
on the screen.
