As an update to above post, the 'develop' branch of depthai repository now installs prebuilt depthai library.
Prebuilt binaries are available for Windows, MacOS and many Linux systems.
To try it out, clone the 'develop' branch:
git clone https://github.com/luxonis/depthai.git --branch develop --single-branch
Do a pip install of requirements:
Note, latest (126.96.36.199) opencv-python does not have a prebuilt binary available for Windows as of now, to circumvent that, install a previous version with the following command:
python -m pip install opencv-python==188.8.131.52
Then proceed with installation of other dependecies (If opencv was installed in last step, it will be skipped by the next)
python -m pip install -r requirements.txt
And run the depthai-demo.py script:
Best of luck!
