No, you cannot. Opencv does not support reading/writing videos on android (yet).

No, sorry. I never messed with videoediting on android. Isnt there an android API for that?

Hi Deep12, You can opt for mp4Parser library, here is a very nice tutorial given for it : Video Editing. But be careful it does have some issues. Please don't include isoviewer library as I got myself work without it. There is also another link Video Trimmer if you can understand. And there is one more library called 'ffmpeg' available for this purpose but I could not find any workable code for it.

I would disencourage the ffmpeg way ... its a start of many errors and headaches. But go ahead with all the rest.
