Core class for acquiring the camera and converting its input into a

.. versionchanged:: 1.10.0
    The pygst and videocapture providers have been removed.

.. versionchanged:: 1.8.0
    There is now 2 distinct Gstreamer implementation: one using Gi/Gst
    working for both Python 2+3 with Gstreamer 1.0, and one using PyGST
    working only for Python 2 + Gstreamer 0.10.

[docs]class CameraBase(EventDispatcher): '''Abstract Camera Widget class. Concrete camera classes must implement initialization and frame capturing to a buffer that can be uploaded to the gpu. :Parameters: `index`: int Source index of the camera. `size`: tuple (int, int) Size at which the image is drawn. If no size is specified, it defaults to the resolution of the camera image. `resolution`: tuple (int, int) Resolution to try to request from the camera. Used in the gstreamer pipeline by forcing the appsink caps to this resolution. If the camera doesnt support the resolution, a negotiation error might be thrown. :Events: `on_load` Fired when the camera is loaded and the texture has become available. `on_texture` Fired each time the camera texture is updated.
