I try to capture video from frame grabber. What I did is I point raw data from buffer into Mat as follow:

myMat = Mat(Size (x, y), CV_8UC1, ImaqBuffer); Image below (picture 1) show what I got from myMat (image after change to Mat), compare to what I'd supposed to get (the image save direct from buffer) (picture 2).

I suppose it is CV_8UC3

Take a look documentation

void process_video_frame(const unsigned char* pixels,
                         int width, int height, int step)
    Mat img(height, width, CV_8UC3, pixels, step);
    GaussianBlur(img, img, Size(7,7), 1.5, 1.5);

also look for an example usage

But why CV_8UC3? Since it is a grayscale image, not color image.

Check the image dimensions, step and data type (really 8 bit unsigned?), or maybe it is a color image with all the same values for r,g,b.

It is a color image that has just gray values. Did you save it on 1 channel?

@sturkmen: I do not understand the & -4 from the step part. Can you explain it please? :)

I found the solution. Data type from buffer actually CV_16SC1. However, imshow will only shows gray windows. So, I need to convert from CV_16SC1 into CV_8UC1. Thanks to all for helping!
