Started on video capturing. I had tried to run a code written on C++ for capturing the frames of a video, copy it and turn it into Mat (matrix class in OpenCV) format and display it on the monitor. However it could not be compiled. It took me 1.5 days to figure out that I failed to enter the cv namespace; I’ll never forget that again. Next step will be to combine the code I had learnt on week 5 with this new code. The objective is to code a working program that captures the keypoints of a video, frame by frame, and display it onto the monitor.
In the code, I have captured the video, frame by frame, and convert it into a matrix format (the class Mat in OpenCV). Next I tried to find the robust points of each frame. However, it takes an insanely long time per frame.
