I am editing ffmpeg and opencv's libraries to accommodate a feature to read NTP timestamps of a video stream's packets. Would I have to make adjustments to the videocapture function from python? I don't really understand the python bindings for videocapture. Can anyone explain?

Edit: I found the solution, apparently all i had to do was just edit the C++ code on the version of opencv of my choice then just build it and make install. Then it was called in videocapture's class.

Thanks a lot berak! the documentation helped quite a bit.

  • 3.2.0 - why put any work into such an outdated version ?

  • "Would I have to make adjustments" -- if you make changes to the c++ API, sure you have to change the python wrappers too.

my bad, I want to test out something without breaking anything important, I am following a guide from back in 2017, duno if it'll still be functional but it's worth a shot. I'd like to ask in what way or how may I change the python wrappers? I am having trouble finding the information. Can you give an example as well?
