after adding declarations and command line args to build i was able to get the script to run but its not doing anything
im a newb

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~$ ./gstreamer_view
Using pipeline:
nvcamerasrc ! video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=(int)1920, height=(int)1080, format=(string)I420, framerate=(fraction)30/1 ! nvvidconv flip-method=2 ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGRx ! videoconvert ! video/x-raw, format=(string)BGR ! appsink

But nothing happens.
