I installed OpenCV 3.1.0 on windows 10, and then made a simple project with Visual studio 2015 to run the example of the Tracker, given in openCV website:

The compiler complained, because obviously the second line of the code: #include "opencv2/tracking.hpp" is wrong ! In fact, the file tracking.hpp is located at: "opencv2/video/tracking.hpp"

So I surely misunderstood something...Can someone please tell me what I am missing to make the example compile ? Thank you, Jaber

opencv/video/tracking.hpp contains camshift, optical flow and friends. (and yes, this is in opencv main trunk)

the docs example you're refering to is about kcf/tld/mil tracking, and is from opencv_contrib.

the tracking code is from

so you need to download that, and rebuild from src.

see readme there for further build instructions
