I have been running my openCV setup on windows until now, but now I need to change to Ubuntu. Because of this, I was unable to create a .jar file for openCV version 3.x so I ended up with version 2.4.13.

This means that some of the lines of code that I had (perfectly working in Windows with openCV 3.1) no longer work.

I had the following line:

BackgroundSubtractorMOG2 mog2 = Video.createBackgroundSubtractorMOG2();

Now, I am trying to change this to work with openCV version 2.4.13, but I'm simply not able to.

I have tried the following line

mog2 =;

but this gives me the following: cannot be resolved to a type.

What can I do to make this run on my current setup?

It worked. So all it needed was the "new" added before. Btw, it also seems to work with BackgroundSubtractorMOG2, not just the ordinary MOG.

you need a newin java for any object, that is not a simple number.

(opencv3 avoided that by having a "factory pattern" instead of a constructor)

Yeah, I know that. I simply overlooked the fact due to I looked to much on the old code. Anyway, thanks again.
