Here is related question: Another one, but without answers: They are not about microcontrollers, because they use ARM CPU, but you can try to start from there. Embedded CV requires a lot of efforts...

OpenCV is written in portable C/C++. It should compile and run on any device that has a C/C++ compiler.

That being said, video i/o (highgui) is platform and OS dependent. You'll probably have to use the platform's video capture to get the actual frames.
Also, on architectures that support only integer operations, OpenCV operations that use floating point will be significantly slower.
