We don’t have official VCU support in PYNQ. It would be theoretically possible to include it in a design but there are a fair number of steps required.

  • Build the VCU kernel modules
  • Install the firmware and application software (The links for all of these are in the user guide
  • Create a bitstream with VCU
  • Create a device tree overlay with the VCU
  • Use PYNQ to download the bitstream and install the device tree overlay
  • Drive the ZCU using Gstreamer or OpenMAX

Other than downloading the bitstream and installing the device tree overlay PYNQ can’t really help.
