Requirements
----
You require OpenCV 3.2 to be installed.
Run

Open the main.py and edit the path to the video. Then run:
$ python main.py
Which will produce a folder called data with the images. There will be 2000+ images for example.mp4.

import cv2
import numpy as np
import os
# Playing video from file:
cap = cv2.VideoCapture('example.mp4')
try:
if not os.path.exists('data'):
os.makedirs('data')
except OSError:
print ('Error: Creating directory of data')
currentFrame = 0
while(True):
# Capture frame-by-frame
ret, frame = cap.read()
# Saves image of the current frame in jpg file
name = './data/frame' + str(currentFrame) + '.jpg'
print ('Creating...' + name)
cv2.imwrite(name, frame)
# To stop duplicate images
currentFrame += 1
# When everything done, release the capture
cap.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows()
