    Python threading has a specific meaning for daemon. A daemon thread will shut down immediately when the program exits. One way to think about these definitions is to consider the daemon thread a thread that runs in the background without worrying about shutting it down.

    If a program is running Threads that are not daemons, then the program will wait for those threads to complete before it terminates. Threads that are daemons, however, are just killed wherever they are when the program is exiting.

# This class can only handle live video streams. When applied on pre-existing videos, there appears to # be an issue with Threading. As a result, the video plays through with a high (almost x4) speed
# This issue has been marked and will be fixed in a future update. 

[docs]class LiveStream: r""" This is an auxiliary class that enables Live Video Streaming for caer with minimalistic latency, and at the expense of little to no additional computational requirements. The basic idea behind it is to tracks and save the salient feature array for the given number of frames and then uses these anchor point to cancel out all perturbations relative to it for the incoming frames in the queue. This class relies heavily on **Threaded Queue mode** for error-free & ultra-fast frame handling. Args: source (int): Source path for the video. If ``source=0``, the default camera device is used. For multiple external camera devices, use incremented values. For eg: ``source=1`` represents the second camera device on your system. """ def __init__(self, source=0): r""" Source must either be an integer (0, 1, 2 etc) or a path to a video file """ if isinstance(source, str): raise ValueError('Expected an integer. Got a filepath.
