multithreading on position tracking function opencv c++

asked 2017-06-09 06:47:59 -0500

I am reading 4 video files using OpenCV C++ and then apply red and green color position tracking to get coordinates (for red and green LED) for each video and then do some other complex analysis on coordinates thus extracted. I was doing it sequentially just now like I have shown in the code below. I thought of making the code fast using multi-threading and read about TBB, std::thread, but kind of novice in multi-threading. Can someone suggest me how to go about using either TBB or std::thread?
