How can someone write to H.264 file in opencv? I am trying to build my own real time two way video conferencing system built on H.264. I am using a logitech web cam 1080P. What should be considerations, code and implementation strategy?

you'll probably need to download the codec as well

Thanks! But do you have a sample of the code. Also an explanation of how to build a container that takes real time video streams and converts it to H.264 format then streams this in real time to another end user system in a video conferencing fashion. How can this be done from step 1. I want understand the process and try it.

oh, streaming .. total different story. the comment above was just about writing images to a file.

opencv can (with a bit of luck) read network streams, but not write those. you'll have to look into gstreamer, ffmpeg and such

Great that's a start! I will look into gstreamer & ffmpeg. I just need to conceptualize to procedure from stage1(compression of video stream using H.264) to Stage n (transmission and decoding on the end user system) all in real time.
