cv::BackgroundSubtractorMOG2, cv::CascadeClassifier(), thread contest

asked 2014-03-02 07:20:55 -0500

The objects in the subject send immediately my application to crash at the rows:

    CCEyes= new cv::CascadeClassifier();
    MOG2Background= new cv::BackgroundSubtractorMOG2();

The rows are in a thread, non in the mai crocess. That happens on Windows. On Linux all works well.

Have you got any suggestion?

After many hours of research now I think it is a OpenCV bug. The behaviour happens with OpenCV and OpenCV 2.4.8 usando MinGW32. In order to compile OpenCV 2.4.8 with MinGW is necessary to patch the source code as is described here:

After that, if you want to obtain the behaviour, the only thing to do is to create a Qt project and in the main class add the following rows:

include "mainwindow.h"

include "ui_mainwindow.h"

include "opencv2/objdetect/objdetect.hpp"

include "opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp"

include "opencv2/imgproc/imgproc.hpp"

include <iostream>

include <stdio.h>

using namespace std; using namespace cv;

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) : QMainWindow(parent), ui(new Ui::MainWindow) { ui->setupUi(this); CascadeClassifier face_cascade; }

MainWindow::~MainWindow() { delete ui; }

Now which is the fastest way to obtain a good OpenCV release for MinGW?

Hi Dennis, I use Qt 5.2 with MSVC 2012, OpenCV 2.4.8 Release and did not encouter any problem with the code you give. So I do not think it is a OpenCV bug.

I think this is a memory-leak error. From your code, CCEyes is a pointer, if it is a global pointer, your object (in previous thread) will be lost in current thread (as the pointer is assigned to a new object). If it is not a global pointer (I mean it is a local variable in each thread code), this may be caused since CascadeClassifier is a non thread-safe class.
