I have successfully trained my positive and negative samples of my dataset. However, when I try to use the hog.setSVMDetector(), I get the following error :

_svmdetector data type = 17 is not supported

Here is the code:

hog = cv2.HOGDescriptor()
svm = cv2.SVM()
img = cv2.imread('t_.png', cv2.IMREAD_COLOR)
h = hog.compute(img)
p = svm.predict(h)
print p

no, you can't set an svm instance as setSVMDetector. instead, you need to retrieve the support vector and (-)rho from your trained SVM, then put it all into a float array.

please have a look at the (opencv3) c++ example (and i doubt, that this is doable from python with opencv2.4 at all)
