I tried to clone OpenCV github repo using the command :

git clone git://

But it is too slow (<10 KBps) and got stuck twice. I checked both in Linux and Windows.

There is no problem with my internet connection. Normal download give me a speed of >500 KBps.

So I decided to download zip file. Is it possible to extract this zip file my local folder and make this folder to work as my personnel Opencv git repo just like a cloned repo? If so how?

No you cannot work with extracted archive as git repository. It does not content development history from git repo. I check cloning from and it is ok (200Kb/s and higher). I believe it was temporary problems on the server.

+1 - thank you. It was just temporary server problem, as you said. I cloned it just now in less than a minute.
