MediaPipe in Python

MediaPipe offers customizable Python solutions as a prebuilt Python package on PyPI, which can be installed simply with

pip install mediapipe
. It also provides tools for users to build their own solutions. Please see MediaPipe in Python for more info.

MediaPipe on the Web

MediaPipe on the Web is an effort to run the same ML solutions built for mobile and desktop also in web browsers. The official API is under construction, but the core technology has been proven effective. Please see MediaPipe on the Web in Google Developers Blog for details.

You can use the following links to load a demo in the MediaPipe Visualizer, and over there click the "Runner" icon in the top bar like shown below. The demos use your webcam video as input, which is processed all locally in real-time and never leaves your device.


Getting started
