Write opencv frames into gstreamer rtsp server pipeline - baseline profile issue

First and foremost, thank you for answering. You are very helpful.
I changed come stuff like you suggeted.
1) I started using need-data.
2) I set the caps on the appsrc
3) I changed the format

But I can display only the first frame, then I get the following error

x264 [error]: baseline profile doesn't support 4:4:4

My code is the following.

#!/usr/bin/env python3

gi.require_version('GstRtspServer', '1.0')
