I tried to open some MP4 videos with VideoCapture, but it failed. I also tried some AVI videos, it resulted in the same. I can use Android APIs to save mp4 videos and open them. Why OpenCV can't? My OpenCV library is OpenCV-344-Android and OS is Android 8.1.

opencv's android sdk has no backend to read or write video files(like ffmpeg or gstreamer).

there is a current pr to change that, but for now, you simply can't do this from opencv.

Thx for your comment! I'm trying to use the Android APIs instead.

I don't think so, if opencv has anything to handle such video files.

Please keep updating here, if you get anything about this. I would also love to hear that.
