I am working on a video processing project which involves tracking objects which can be stationary or moving. The actual static background is available at the beginning. I have writeen a simple code for getting the foreground :

cv::Mat temp;
threshold(temp, temp, 128, 255, CV_THRESH_BINARY | CV_THRESH_OTSU);

But unfortunately the code doesnt seem to work well in retrieving the foreground objects...I will be glab if someboday provide me with some suggestions and bits of code...

Try the background subtract methods of OpenCV here and specially the Mixture of Gaussian here, and the associated sample (cpp/segment_object.cpp) for an example.
