If you only want to capture the camera frames and display or process them, this will work fine on android. The only thing that wont work is saving them to an avi or similar. The VideoWriter class is not functional on android.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have spent some time over the internet to find something. Actually I want to achieve Video Filtering. I couldn't find much in Android/Java.

I am guessing you are looking for ready made solutions. I have to dissappoint you, because it will be hard to find. Try to split your problem into subfunctionality, then find a solution for each part. Ask questions if you get stuck while programming, but illustrate the work you have done so far.

Actually, I just want to know if it is possible what I want to achieve before I jump into OpenCv. I have done image filtering in an applicaiton using android native EffectFactory for applying filters on images.

Now I was looking into OpenCv if I can achieve this or not. Here is the reference application. I was looking for this kind of video filtering.

Yes this is possible. This are basically operations on image channels, which can be applied perfectly in OpenCV as far as I know.
