A simple package for getting live frames from rtsp streams.
A RTSP module that makes it easy to grab live frames from a RTSP stream. This package basically just wraps cv2 and lets you grab the latest frame from the camera, instead of relying on the buffer.
from rtsparty import Stream stream = Stream('rtsp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/endpoint/', live=True) # Get a live frame from the camera live_frame_from_camera = stream.get_frame() # Force a reconnection stream.reconnect() # Show a live view of the stream stream.view()
To grab the latest frame from the camera no matter what, construct the stream with live=True (or leave it out, it's the default):
stream = Stream(live=True) stream = Stream()
To use the buffer, which may not provide the most live images from the camera, set live to False.
stream = Stream(live=False)
By leaving out the first argument in the Stream constructor, it will by default use the default video capture device on your machine (your webcam most likely).
