I use example code as following to try open MP4 video file and put some text to video file but open result always return failed.

extern "C"
//.... something code............

const char* arrURL = "mnt/sdcard/Download/VID_20140317_104750.mp4";
string source(arrURL);

VideoCapture inputVideo;              // Open input

if (! -> alway return false here...
    env->ReleaseStringUTFChars(URL, arrURL);
    env->ReleaseStringUTFChars(sInputText, arrInputText);

i used eclipse CDT - juno, NDK-r9, OpenCV 2.4.8 do everyone can help me answer some questions? - VideoCapture can not be supported on android? - Do you know any other solution on android? (not FFMPEG lib)

videocapture can't read or write video-files on android due to the (hold your hat) missing ffmpeg backend
