I have searched a lot for this problem, but I did not find any solution for this problem.

I have a program which receives JPEG file data through socket (in bytes), then I convert the byte array to OpenCV Mat object as blow:

Mat mat = Imgcodecs.imdecode(new MatOfByte(byteArray), Imgcodecs.CV_LOAD_IMAGE_UNCHANGED);

It converts well without any exception, then (for test case to ensure the data is OK) I convert the Mat object to BufferedImage and then show it in a JPanel, everything goes well without any exception.

But when I apply:

mog2.apply(mat, foregroundImg, -1); // tried 1, 0, 0.003 etc


knn.apply(mat, foregroundImg, -1); // tried 1, 0, 0.003 etc

the mat to BackgroundSubtractor (any of BackgroundSubtractorMOG2 or BackgroundSubtractorKNN) then it throws the exception with the following message:

OpenCV Error: Bad flag (parameter or structure field) (Unrecognized or unsupported array type) in cvGetMat, file C:\builds\master_PackSlaveAddon-win64-vc12-static\opencv\modules\core\src\array.cpp, line 2494

Then I change the type of Mat as follow, but throws the same error

Mat newMat = new Mat();
mat.convertTo(newMat, CvType.CV_8UC3)

For test I have done some other operation on this mat to ensure that it works with other OpenCV function, but it all works well like:

Convert to gray

Imgproc.cvtColor(mat, gartImg, Imgproc.COLOR_RGB2GRAY);

Do threshold

Imgproc.threshold(gartImg, gartImg, 100, 255, Imgproc.THRESH_BINARY);

And so on... all works without any exception.

Special case: If I use a webcam or read frames from a video file, everything goes well without any exception.

Now I don't know why this error or exception happens, is this a bug with the BackgroundSubtractor or there is anything wrong in data?

Special Note: I am using OpenCV latest version (3.0) in Java Languange
