Get mjpeg udp stream from actioncam HX-A1

I finally had success when using following command ! (so simple when I read it..)

gst-launch-1.0.exe udpsrc port=1234 ! jpegdec ! autovideosink

I would now use a command to save as single jpeg frames like I did with ffplay :

ffmpeg -i udp:// –qscale :v 2 -f image2 -update 1 d:\img.jpg

I just tried this : gst-launch-1.0.exe udpsrc port=1234 !  jpegparse ! filesink location=image.jpg
I have a single fiel BUT it is growing...

Any solution to use a ffplay "-update" like options with gstreamer ?

You're right, there is more verbose info with local ip : But I don’t understand the problem (ERROR Can't play a text file without video or visualizations.)

With no options
