How can I process some video / live video from a web cam then display / stream them on a web page?

Does opencv has some libraries to do such things?

What do you want to do with the video? I mean, what processing?

just for example face detection in openCV, background detection to count how many cars for instance. But, it will be shown live on a web. Thanks for help

Okay. This is completely new. I have never attempted this. So you can follow the guide here and see is that works out for you.

If it is too complicated a crude algorithm will be to:

  1. Get images from the web cam instead of the video.
  2. Apply face detection algorithm to the image.
  3. Stream the video.

For face detection on images follow this guide.

For streaming you can use the SO question here.

Hope this helps. :)

Anything else, feel free to comment!
