Object Tracking with Mouse event

I have a project where I have to track a desired object by creating a user interface. The idea is basically that I will have a window showing the video stream and with the mouse I can click the object and track it. I've been reading and I think that a way to accomplish this would be by using the mouse clicking event function from OpenCV. Maybe I can start with something simple like clicking and verify certain color to track. I great example would be this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzVbh... Something like this is also acceptable. What could you guys suggest me?

I'm using Visual Studio and OpenCV. My experience in programming is not much, so this is a pretty challenging project for me. The more detailed the answer and suggestions, the better. Suggestions will be really appreciated

Thanks

  • actually, most opencv tracking samples are already implemented in exactly that way, e.g look here or at the tracking module in opencv_contrib
