Hi guys. I am trying to use OpenCV for an object detection project. I need to be able to read video from a file as well as being able to use a live video stream from a camera. Unfortunately, the VideoCapture class does not support the constructor VideoCapture(String filename) - only VideoCapture(int device). I saw this post:, which answered the question...but I don't know how to recompile the files I have edited? I have downloaded OpenCV 2.4.7.

oh that should be fixed in 2.4.7 without any recompile or such, at least for desktop-java.

for android, that's a total different situation ( missing ffmpeg backend )

please clarify, what you're talking about.
