How to add opencv to the camera-streamer example app

After going through the Camera Streamer Tutorial, you may still be wondering how you can add OpenCV to your version of the camera-streamer app to perform image processing.

Well just like PyTurboJPEG was added to the setup.cfg, you can add opencv-python under the install_requires section.

Then it’s as simple as importing in your python file with import cv2 and using the library!

Checkout this simple example showing how this is done:
