I working on a video composition project using multiple user generated videos . Below is my code

df=pd.concat(user,axis=1)
#print df

dfs= df.loc[:, (slice(None), ['Panning','sec'])]


video_index=0
cap=cv2.VideoCapture(videoList[0])

fra=[]
fourcc = cv2.VideoWriter_fourcc(*'DIVX')
out = cv2.VideoWriter("Output.avi", fourcc, fps, (width, height), True)
while(cap.isOpened()):
    ret,frame=cap.read()
    fra.append(frame)

    for index,row in dfs.iterrows():
          if (row[:, 'Panning'] == 'Panning').any():
               idx = row[:, 'Panning'][row[:, 'Panning'] == 'Panning'].index.tolist()
               sec = int(row.loc[(idx, 'sec')].values.tolist()[0])
              if cap.get(0)==1000*sec:
                   cap = cv2.VideoCapture(videoList[indices.index(random.choice(idx))])
                  cap.set(0, sec * 1000)
                  ret, frame = cap.read()
                  fra.append(frame)
          else:

              ret,frame=cap.read()
              fra.append(frame)
              if frame is None:
                  video_index += 1
                  if video_index == len(videoList):
                      break
                  cap = cv2.VideoCapture(videoList[indices.index(long_dur())])

                  cap.set(0,1000*sec)
                  ret, frame = cap.read()
                  fra.append(frame)

When I am trying to run I am getting the following error

  OpenCV Error: Unspecified error (The numpy array of typenum=2, ndims=3 can not be created) in NumpyAllocator::allocate, file ..\..\..\modules\python\src2\cv2.cpp, line 184

You're keeping a copy of every frame you read-in. Depending on your videos, that could be a LOT of frames. Try doing something with them and clearing fra every so often.

Just to be clear: your memory assigned to your process is depleted and thus you need to do something about that. It is all in the error :)
