Can I control Video Card by using Python under linux?

LUK
Hi, I have a video card based on cx2388 chip to catch video and do the
other thing.
There's already a V4L2 driver for it, but it is too hard for me to
program in C.
Can I use Python do the job?
Does Python has simpler APIs?
Please gvie me some suggestion.
Thanks!

You are probably looking for the "gstreamer" package. It has Python
bindings available.

HTH,
