Capturing a frame in a double while loop

Hi! I have a problem with something like this. The case is that if i > a && i < b (it is just an example, the whole thing is a bit more complex) I need my function to still capture frames but use static variables from //do something1. Unfortunately, whenever this second while loop starts, I get an error saying that the frame object is empty - nothing has been captured. Any idea how to solve it? Cheers.

int i = 0;    
        cap >> frame;
        //do something1

        while (i > a && i < b) //for a < b
                 cap >> frame;
                //do something

What's exactly error message? May be you should check frame empty

I don't understand while loops : it's only a if with else i++

Does this help? CAP_PROP_POS_MSEC

Because loops are far more complicated and it is not really helpful to show what's inside of them.
