Ov9281 B0162 gstreamer support


B0162 has 1-lane MIPI configuration and ov9281 overlay for RPI only supports 2-lanes configuration. Use of v4l2src is not an option for that camera board.
I have created plugin for GStreamer (https://github.com/raspberrypiexperiments/gst-arducamsrc) that wraps ups ArduCam SDK.

In order to run it:
GST_DEBUG=*:3 gst-launch-1.0 arducamsrc exposure=10000 auto-exposure=true hflip=true ! video/x-raw, height=800, width=1280, sensor-mode=0 ! videoconvert ! fpsdisplaysink sync=false

If there is any better way to use B0162 with gstreamer please let me know.

Hi @marcin.sielski

As you said, the v4l2 driver of ov9281 on Raspberry Pi only supports 2lane.
There seems to be no better way for cameras with 1lane.
