i want to know how i can find the pixel postion of the corner points of a contour?

I use canny for edge detection and then I am finding the largest contour in the image (see image). Now I need the exact corner points. Important, the display position is variable

If I use minRectArea, I get bad results.

I hope someone can help me :)

Could this Question be related to what you want to achieve? When that is the case, try what LBerger is suggesting there and look also up this post

I have a similar contour to the image, using the findContours() function; but I can not extract the coordinates of the corners.
