My project consists on making some operations on a streaming video in real time thanks to OpenCV using the video URL. I chose to change the color of the video(or its resolution, 2 easy codes) it worked perfectly when I generated a streaming video from my laptop camera. but when I put the URL as an input it didn't. here what the 2 URLs I am using look like

and here is my code

import cv2

import numpy as np

cap = cv2.VideoCapture('')

while True:


gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)


if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):
