Is HOG detection on infrared security recording of poor quality possible? [closed]

I am working on a project which involves object detection on security recording of poor quality. I was trying to perform the detection using HOG detectMultiScale algorithm which comes with OpenCV. First I trained the algorithm using samples captured from the recording of similar quality in order to produce SVM vectors. Next I did some test but I didn't get satisfactory results. I was getting false negatives all the time.

Currently I cannot show you the actual image from the recording I am working with, but I found an exemplary image on the Internet which presents similar quality (sorry I cannot paste direct link because of insufficient points):

The only difference is that my recording additionally contains some interlacing artifacts (horizontal lines), which probably makes things even worse.

I would like to ask whether it is actually possible to perform successful HOG detection on the recording of such poor quality? Note, that I don't want to detect complex shapes like faces etc, I want to detect more general, basic shapes, for example the shape of a sofa.

If HOG detection is not the way to go, could you point out some other techniques/algorithms which should give more accurate results in such use case?

i suggest you to try dlib

so do you want to suggest that dlib version of the HOG has some chance to deal with such poor video quality?
