Hello, I have some corrupted image data mixed with some images. When I load it with


I get the error

Corrupt JPEG data

I would like to intercept this and move those images to a folder since they have corruption issues. However, it doesn't seem to be an exception so I cannot catch it. Any help is appreciated.

I guess this stackoverflow topic gives you a hint on how you could approach the problem.

Indeed. Calling the decode function brings up the error. I do wish it threw an exception.

Wouldn't a try - catch around the decode function work?

No, it doesn't throw an exception. It does seem to print the error message on the stderr stream, but I don't know how to capture it when the program is running.

Time to dig into code and look where the actual error message is generated I would say, then generating an exception yourself by adding the lines of code necessary and then build OpenCV yourself with the adapted code. Maybe even add it as a pull request so it gets added in the official library.
