We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I am trying to run some of the OpenCV examples in Processing, but am getting the infamous black screen. I have no problem getting video feed from the webcam in the video examples, but with the OpenCV examples, such as face detection and blobs, I have had no luck.
In the tutorial I started with, it was recommended to download OpenCV 1 (https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/304), so that's what I tried. I am doing this on an old Windows Vista computer and running the latest Processing, 2.2.1
I searched for solutions and tried this with no luck: . Steps needed to solve problem: Install Quicktime 7 Install a vdig driver: http://www.eden.net.nz/7/20071008/ Run Processing in compatibility mode for windows xp sp 3 . More searching, and still no luck on a solution that works.
In one discussion, I saw a link to the processing forum, but the post seems to be gone: https://forum.processing.org/topic/solved-windows-opencv-webcam
Anyway, if you could please help, or steer me in the right direction, it would save me from going any further insane!
