You will probably be better off starting with this if you are new to OpenCV and/or Android.

It uses JavaCV to access the face recognition algorithims in OpenCV.

Seriously the worst approach EVER, since OpenCV has it own wrappers specifically for Android development!

"if you are new to OpenCV and/or Android". I was simply trying to point out a way to begin.

hi, @ruraj, feel like another messenger slaughtered here , the whole thing is kind of a battlefield, and you came along waving the wrong flag . ..

one the one hand, javacv is a 3rd party wrapper, that unfortunately uses deprecated c-api functionality, which was more or less discarded 4 years ago already, and to see something llike this can make a grown man cry (2 bloody copies, just because they can't get their bloody api straight, bloody...)

on the other side, opencv's own wrappers aren't all wine and roses either, e.g. using the face-reco parts is not possible atm without additional jni support (the bloody create function)

Appologies after reading @berak's post, reacted maybe a bit to harsh :D
