Hi fellas I am new to OpenCV. I want to recognise hand gestures and move the mouse pointer with hand positions. I tried to use the Haar Training and Trans Cascade approach, but it was taking more than 12 days(Still no guarantee that it will succeed) so i now wanna switch to another approach .

I would be mostly using Java for that (Though i am comfortable with both C++ and Java), There are many youtube videos available on youtube that shows the use , but none discusses the algorithm/approaches use.

Thanks in Advance!!!!

I never worked on hand recognition myself but whatever OpenCV question I see, usually answer is in "Learning OpenCV" book. I strongly recommending it, saves time. In this book hand recognition topic is discussed with contours. provides multpiple posts about it.
