Few people recently expressed interest in using OpenCV with Elphel cameras.

Let's concentrate our efforts using OpenCV wiki page and mailing list.

I compiled both OpenCV 2.1 and current git version with FFMPEG support. FFMPEG support seems to work, but FFMPEG itself brake on the MJPEG stream.

I took the facedetect example in OpenCV-2.1.0/samples/c/facedetect.cpp and just modified one line:

//    CvCapture* capture = 0;
      CvCapture* capture = cvCreateFileCapture("rtsp://");

Running ./facetedect I can see network load from the camera, but few seconds later the program die with:

[rtsp @ 0xbefd80]Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate 
picture size invalid (0x0)
Last message repeated 1 times
[rtsp @ 0xbf2480]Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate

it's an FFMPEG error.

I tried both stable FFMPEG from Ubuntu 10.04, PPA version from MOTU Media Team and even fresh git version. They all die the same way. Passing -x & -y to ffplay does not help. Here is what I get directly from ffplay rtsp:// :
