Is there android sample application for face recognition in videos? I would like to use Java API's to identify in a given video.

no there isn't.

also, due to limitations in the java-wrapper, you can't use facereco from java atm.

(you'll need some additional jni/ndk effort to create a FaceRecognizer)

I think this answer from @berak on stackoverflow sums it all up...

got some answers to this, unfortunately, all of them are a bit sad ..

opencv comes with its own java bindings (as of lately), but a little bug there prevents you from using the actual face recognition (the code's all there, the factory method to create a facerecognozer is not)

javacv (independant community wrapper) got that better, but it's relying heavily on the old, deprecated c-api for the wrapping, it will go away soon, what are those ppl going to do then ?

The question if this is still true, but I am guessing it is ... so basically detection of faces is possible, using the facerecognizer interface isn't...
