Dear anyone who sees this
In the jetson multimedia API, there is an option to give the encoder an ROI area where he will concentrate more bits for a higher quality
Now, it’s easier and more documented to use the jetson’s hardware encoder with gstreamer, but that option, which we need in our project, is unavailable
We would like to know if there is any plan to support ROI in the foreseeable future, and if so, when
The gstreamer nvidia jetson encoders are provided by Nvidia and not part of the GStreamer project. For adding support for ROI to the nvidia jetson encoders, you would need to modify the encoder.
It just so happens that I have done that previously and proposed that to nvidia on their forum here: GStreamer Nvidia V4L2 ROI support - Jetson Projects - NVIDIA Developer Forums
The source code for this is available from: GitHub - ystreet/gst-nvidia-v4l2
