Gstreamer 'cannot query video position'

I’m using gstreamer pipelines for multiple cameras in a sensor suite, all of which are able to be visualized using gstreamer on my computer. The issue occurs when trying to use OpenCV functionality VideoCapture, which I’m using like this: cv::VideoCapture cap(hdr_gst_str, cv::CAP_GSTREAMER); , where hdr_gst_str is the pipeline for my hdr camera.

I get the following error when running my script: [ WARN:0] global ../modules/videoio/src/cap_gstreamer.cpp (935) open OpenCV | GStreamer warning: Cannot query video position: status=1, value=178, duration=-1

I’ve tried looking into it and it seems many others are having this issue, but I’m unable to find a solid solve. I will post my simple ~50 line ROS node below for posterity. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    //image capture and image mat
    cv::VideoCapture cap(hdr_gst_str, cv::CAP_GSTREAMER);
    cv::Mat Img;

    int counter;

        //pull in and read images

        if (!cap.isOpened())
            ROS_INFO("Failed to capture images");

        cv_bridge::CvImage im_bridge;
        sensor_msgs::Image im_msg;
        std_msgs::Header header;
        header.seq = counter; //image sequence
        header.stamp = ros::Time::now(); //image timestamp
        //image encoding might be wrong, HDR currently display as BGR instead of RGB
        im_bridge = cv_bridge::CvImage(header, sensor_msgs::image_encodings::RGB16, Img);
        //cv_bridge used to convert from cv image to ros message topic
