I actually tried with your answer. But the name of the person is not getting displayed in the video. I am now trying to display names of person in a video. For that I am using the code from the following link

and I tried your answer to display the names of the persons in the video. But it is failing. Below is the code //g++ -ggdb pkg-config --cflags opencv -o basename online_faceRec_video.cpp .cpp online_faceRec_video.cpp pkg-config --libs opencv
