I am new to Python, and I am trying to get OpenCV 3.2.0 running on my Windows 10 machine with a Logitech C920
The script will pop up a Video Source dialog where I select my Logitech C920. The little blue light on that indicates that its being accessed turns on, but the cap.read() call always returns false. If I run the same code using the vtest.avi video file, it runs fine
Whats going on? Why can't I read the frames from the live webcam? If I switch the camera to use the one in my HTC Vive it gets the frames and shows a window, but the image data is always black. Both cameras work fine if I check them in Google Hangouts

import numpy as np import cv2 #cap = cv2.VideoCapture("vtest.avi"); cap = cv2.VideoCapture(-1); while(True): # Capture frame-by-frame ret, frame = cap.read() print cap.isOpened(), ret if frame is not None: # Display the resulting frame cv2.imshow('frame',frame) if cv2.waitKey(22) & 0xFF == ord('q'): break else: print "Frame is None" # When everything done, release the capture cap.release() cv2.destroyAllWindows() print "I am done"
