Does anyone knows a straightforward method for getting an image from a framegrabber on opencv? For now, the best method i found is : 1/ Open the camera with another software (i use matlab) 2/ Use DVdriver to create a virtual webcam displaying the images from the framegrabber 3/ Display the virtual webcam on OpenCV

This is really not convenient, i hope someone found a trick. Thanks =)

Are you working in Windows? This framegrabber should have VfW drivers and should be seen as a normal camera by OpenCV.

Really? Yeah, i'm using it on Windows. I'm using a wireless camera and have a receiver connected to the framegrabber by the CVBS wire. Did you try something similar? If yes and it's working, which driver did you use?
