 frame = new Mat(height, width, CvType.CV_8UC4);
        // traitement ...
         byte[] data = = new byte[(int) ( *  frame.channels())];
            frame.get(0, 0, data);

What you have to do is store your frame in a Mat element and loop over it using the at functor. This will need the following code

Mat frame;
// To get data<uchar>(i,j)

Also, please try to put more clear questions ... your question should not be found inside sample code.

Actually it is quite normal that your algorithm doesnt work. You are creating the Mat storage object, reserving memory, but there is no assignment, no placing of data in the Mat. Create a Mat of zero's for testing purposes using :

  frame = new Mat::zeros(height, width, CvType.CV_8UC4)
