I am trying to extract images from a rosbag file and to do that I need cv_bridge. I have surfed the internet, but I could not find anything useful. I tried choco install ros-noetic-vision-opencv and choco install ros-noetic-cv-bridge, I can't find other way to extract images without using cv_bridge either. Is it possible to do the extraction in some way in windows or I am tied to Ubuntu?

Thank you

Hi there, Many metapackages haven't been broken out into chocolatey packages, so are bundled together into the larger metapackage. Critical packages - like cv_bridge - are installed as part of the desktop build of noetic.

Are you finding that this isn't working? If it isn't working for your scenario, It would be great if you could create an issue on, which use for triaging and prioritizing fixes. I'd love to understand more.
