I have done facial detection and TLD(using OpenTLD) on opencv 2.4 C++ . To alter the code to stream ipcamera i did this.

VideoCapture captureDevice; string videoStreamAddress = "http://admin:admin@";; //in main loop captureDevice>>frame; //in main loop

It feels like it waits for each frame to process unlike webcam which maybe dropping frames . i have done ipcamera opencv video stream (without object detection code) using wired ethernet and its quite realtime like webcam , but when i run object detection on it , it delays much more than webcam .Video resolution of both are same.

please help.

Finally solved the problem by my own .

using a 3 iteration loop in my main loop:

for(int i=0; i<2; i++) { captureDevice>>frame; } This lowered the frame rates to 14fps , but with no delays( caused due to buffering ), Other approach i found is to create seperate thread for capturing frames and processing it .
