i have problem in useing opencv python when reading rtsp stream, this works fine:

cv::VideoCapture video_cap;"rtsp://admin:pw@ip//Streaming/Channels/1?tcp");

but when i use python, it doesn't work, my python code is

video_cap = cv2.VideoCapture("rtsp://admin:pw@ip//Streaming/Channels/1?tcp");

and i had tested this:

video_cap = cv2.VideoCapture(0);

it works fine too, I don't know why? Anyone can tell me?

os, opencv version ? how did you install it ? (esp. the python version!)

2.4.13, I moved “cv2.pyd” in (the path python.exe exists)/Lib/site-packages

how did you install it ? (if it was via PIP - no ffmpeg support builtin, hence no ip-capture possible)

(and why on earth outdated 2.4 ?)

no, I didn‘t install it by pip, I just put "cv2.pyd" in python env. and is opencv 2.4.13 outdated? it's just released in 2016... and i run python code

import cv2 ;print(cv2.getBuildInformation())

and i get result like

Video I/O:   FFMPEG: YES

oh, that's on win, missed that.

make sure opencv_ffmpeg.dll is on your PATH (or next to where you run the script)
