Python – How to install Python OpenCV through Conda

anacondacondaopencvpython

I'm trying to install OpenCV for Python through Anaconda, but I can't seem to figure this out.

I tried

conda install opencv
conda install cv2

I also tried searching

conda search cv

No cigar. I ran across this which lists opencv as an included package:

http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/pkgs.html

After running conda info I noticed my version is 3.4.1, but I couldn't seem to find any information about this version online. I'm pretty confused about this.

Am I missing something pretty obvious here? If opencv was available for a previous version of Anaconda, then why wouldn't it be available for the newer version? And why does that link only show me documentation for version 1.9.2?

Best Solution

You can install it using binstar:

conda install -c menpo opencv
