Gstreamer kmssink overlaying console text

Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:21 pm

I am trying to work out if there is a known work around. When using kmssink for HDMI output. It's overlaying the boot console text, but when scaled it's displaying behind it. For a TV it won't go fully stretched fullscreen and the text appears at the top of it. It's offset a little.

Is there a way to force kmssink to output to the original layer or add a black border ?

It was suggested to try mode setting but I think I got cpu errors.

gst-launch-1.0 playbin -v video-sink="kmssink force-modesetting=true" audio-sink="alsasink device=iec958:CARD=vc4hdmi,DEV=0" uri=srt://:8888
