Hi im trying to get a video feed from a http page to OpenCV in Java i've tried the following

VideoCapture capture =new VideoCapture("");

this is the feed string from the server side

 $("#live_image").attr("src", basicURL + "stream/live.jpg?id=" + picCount);

I've tried alot of combinations but have had no luck..

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

your server seems to send out a *single * picture only, and with a different url each time.

that's not a video stream.

read a bit, how to generate a proper mjpg feed.
