OpenCV provides easy access to video feeds, enabling applications to provide realtime processing, and can even display the processed video output. In a realtime applications, the video feed is tapped for an image at the start of a repeating loop, which represents the actual image processing to occur. If you're having trouble accessing a live video stream, raw image sequence files are available for any future modules utilizing live video feeds.

Next we're going to capture or request…from the operating system to use the camera.…We can do this by naming the variable…cap = cv2.VideoCapture and then we're going to specify…a zero argument input that indicates continuous.…Note that this abstracts a lot of the…under the hood operations that the operating system…and OpenCV do in order to decide…what camera to use if there are multiple,…and how to handle passing frames into OpenCV.…Thankfully, we do not have to worry about that.…
