I found on this URL https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/flask-video-streaming-revisited a very easy to implement example of video streaming made in pure Python written by Miguel Grinberg.
I suggest to read this tutorial to understand how it works. But if you want to try quickly these are thet steps to do:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-flask
Install the Python support for the Pi Camera:
sudo apt-get install python-picamera
sudo apt-get install git
Clone the flask-video-streaming repository:
git clone https://github.com/miguelgrinberg/flask-video-streaming.git
Move inside the directory created by Git:
CAMERA=pi python app.py
