  1. Install Flask: Begin by installing Flask using the command "pip install flask" in your terminal or command prompt. This will install Flask on your system.

  2. Import Flask: In your Python script, import the Flask module using the following line of code: "from flask import Flask". This will allow you to use Flask's functionalities in your application.

  3. Create an instance of the Flask class: Create a new instance of the Flask class by initializing it with a unique name. For example, you can use the following code: "app = Flask(name)". This will create a new Flask web application.

  4. Define a route: To define a route, use the "@" symbol followed by the route URL. For example, you can define a route for the home page using the following code: "@app.route('/')". This tells Flask that this function will be executed when a user visits the root URL of your application.

  5. Define a function: Define a function that will be executed when the specified route is accessed. For example, you can define a function called "home" using the following code: "def home(): return 'Hello, World!'" This function will return the string "Hello, World!" when the home page is accessed.

  6. Add the function to the route: To associate the defined function with the route, use the route decorator. For example, you can use the following code: "@app.route('/') def home(): return 'Hello, World!'" This will associate the "home" function with the root URL.

  7. Run the application: Finally, run your Flask application using the following code: "if name == 'main':". This will start the Flask development server and make your application accessible.

  8. Test the application: Open a web browser and visit the URL provided by the Flask development server. In this case, it should be "http://localhost:5000". You should see the string "Hello, World!" displayed on the page, indicating that your Flask application is running correctly.

Note: It is important to note that this is a basic example of creating a Flask application and defining a route. For video streaming in Flask, you will need to implement additional functionality and use appropriate libraries or tools, such as OpenCV or FFmpeg, to handle video streaming.
