I bought a microsoft HD 3000 webcam, it works fine with 720p 30FPS

but there is a strange problem with opencv running this camera, when i open it with opencv videocapture. camera gives me 640*480 resolution picture while in windows 10 camera application it gives 720p which is right

i don't know what is wrong here

problem is with webcam or opencv?? anybody has any idea

i am using opencv 3.4

You can use set method:

VideoCapture cap(0);

if (!cap.isOpened()) {
    cerr << "ERROR! Unable to open camera\n";
    return -1;
cap.set(CAP_PROP_FRAME_WIDTH ,1280);
if (cap.get(CAP_PROP_FRAME_HEIGHT)!=720 || cap.get(CAP_PROP_FRAME_WIDTH)!=1280)
     cout<<"unable to set 1280*720\n";
