Example code for displaying (and finding FPS of) gstreamer video in OpenCV.
/*
Example code for displaying (and finding FPS of) gstreamer video in OpenCV.
Created by Peter Moran on 7/29/17.
Usage
-------
After compiling, run this program with the following arguments. All are optional, but must be used cumulatively.
`./gstreamer_test <width> <height> <fps> <window_size> <display_video>`
For example, to display 1080p video at 30 fps and calculate the true fps over a 15 sample running window, run:
`./gstreamer_test 1920 1080 30 15 1`
Note
-------
FPS measurements are not fully accurate when displying the video.
