I have a video mp4 and I want to extract frames from it. The following code:

t1 = time.time()

cap.set(cv2.CAP_PROP_POS_FRAMES, sample_frame) # here is too slow.

t2 = time.time()

ret, frame =

Is there a faster way for me to extract frame from video?

yes, setting the frame position (arbitrarily) is very expensive. why do you need that ? can't you just read one frame after the other ?
