I heard from many sources that OPENCV does not work well with video live feed. However, I came across this link https://gist.github.com/GOROman/6248503

cv::VideoCapture cap( "http://10.5.5.9:8080/live/amba.m3u8" );

This is the WIFI address for GOPRO hero 3. (I believe it is, but not sure as i never use wifi cam before).

Can this code open up the video livefeed for GOpro? And the video can be processed like to detect colours and shapes? Because i am working on off-board live video processing, dealing with intermittent signals of TS351 and RC305. And Easycap video capture card is quite slow....

I am using OPENCV 3.0.0 C++ on Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, running Win 8 64bit system.

Problem with VideoCapture and livestreams is that the only advice we can give people is to try and see if it works... if not, I am afraid you will need something else to capture the data and then process it inside OpenCV...
