I’m trying to run the videoGrabberExample on a Raspberry Pi 3, using a Raspberry Pi Camera version 2.1 connected to the dedicated SATA port.
The example compiles fine, and I can run it fine but i get a black rectangle instead of video, and i see this wraning
[warning] ofGstVideoUtils: update(): ofGstVideoUtils not loaded
I have already enabled the camera in the RPi Preferences, and I have already installed all the dependencies.
Are there some additional dependencies that are not installed with the install_dependencies script?
search for the same question they had posted “Problem playing mp4 h264 videos (GStreamer ?)”
I did :
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0-10*
it installed a lot of stuff, including lots of KDE dependencies… but it works !
now i would like to know which was the missing package i was looking for !
I cannot guarantee this will work but it might solve your problem. I had similar issues getting a rPi camera to operate with open frameworks but it isn’t set up right now to test. Have you tried the add-on built specifically for the raspberry pi? It was really neat. You can find it mentioned here:
I’m also not a genius and so I had actually done a hefty search of the forum before posting as a result, I also installed a million additional gstreamer* related packages, but my RaspberyPi camera v2 still didn’t work.
I then tried the same app, with a PlayStation EYE USB camera and it works just fine.
So the solution is:
Don’t use the built in videoGrabberExample with the Raspberry Pi Camera V2; use that for USB cameras.
If you want to use the SATA Raspberry Pi Camera modules, use @jvcleave’s awesome ofxRPiCameraVideoGrabber instead:
