Filtering a video with python

asked 2019-01-15 09:52:44 -0500

Hello I'd like to filter a video mp4 with IPython using openCV. Meaning turning a video with color to a white and black video. How can I do that ? Is there any tutorial about it please ?

Thanks in advance

are you sure, you need opencv (a computer-vision library) for this ?

e.g. this could be done with a plain ffmpeg cmdline

It looks like a Linux command... Is it ? Or is it something that I can do with python ? I'm currently on windows so I thought to do it with python, or anything that can be done on Windows

all i'm saying is: what you want sounds more like video processing, not like computer-vision.

Right. So you're saying openCV is not most efficient to do it. Do you have an idea where I can look at to perform that on Windows for instance with python ?
