PYNQ: PYTHON PRODUCTIVITY

Camera with no image

Im trying to open a webcam connected to the pynq, but it is not opening the video. I think is beacause I have no image board created on the system.

Im trying to open the camera from the console. Also I tried to open it by a OpenCV
code, but there’re no results at all.

Does anyone know what can I do ?

Which board are you using?

I’m not sure what you mean by this “I think is beacause I have no image board created on the system.”

There are some video notebooks included in the PYNQ image that show some (OpenCV) webcam examples. Have you looked at those?

Im using PYNQ Z1.

I mean I have no visual system for the pynq1.iso, no virtual machine for ubuntu.

Im running the code from the ssh terminal. without using jupyther.

You have an idea? Thank u!

Sorry, I have no idea what you mean by this.

Can you log in to Jupyter?

If not, can you check the notebook (on GitHub) and copy the python code to the terminal to setup a webcam?
E.g. https://github.com/Xilinx/PYNQ/blob/master/boards/Pynq-Z1/base/notebooks/video/opencv_face_detect_webcam.ipynb
