Hello! I'm trying the following command in my terminal:
 gst-launch -e -v v4l2src device="/dev/video1" ! video/x-raw-yuv,
framerate=25/1, width=640, height=360 ! \
   timeoverlay halign=right valign=bottom shaded-background=true ! \
   textoverlay text="Test Video 640x360 25fps" halign=left valign=bottom
shaded-background=true ! \
   x264enc bitrate=498 ! mpegtsmux ! filesink location=video1.ts
After using "mkfifo video1.ts", and I just get the message:
"setting pipeline to PAUSED"
So, It's getting stucked at pause, why isn't it working?
