opencv has face-recognition, unfortunately, it's not available in the java bindings.

so there isn't any other way to do face recognition in Java?

  • if it's opencv3, you could try to get the opencv_contrib modules and hack it by adding "java"
  • you could try to write your own (be bold !) e.g. all parts needed for eigenfaces are available
  • if, on the other side, all you have is a youtube link, - sorry, but you're doomed.

Maybe the best solution is use Python or C++ instead of Java, for this time... (I saw a lot of documentation for these languages)

JavaCV does has the interface to the facerecognizer. Why not give it a shot?
