How to solve this cvtColor() error? "cv2.error: C:\builds\master_PackSlaveAddon-win32-vc12-static\opencv\modules\imgproc\src\color.cpp:7456: error: (-215) scn == 3 || scn == 4 in function cv::ipp_cvtColor"

I am trying to run the following code:

import numpy as np
import cv2

cap = cv2.VideoCapture(0)

while(True):
    # capture frame-by-frame
    ret, frame = cap.read()

    # our operation on frame come here
    gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)

    # Display the resulting frame
    cv2.imshow('frame', gray)
    if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):
        break
# When everything is done release the capture
cap.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows()

But I get this error when I run it:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      C:\Python27\python.exe C:/OpenCV_Python/Python_Test.py
OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (scn == 3 || scn == 4) in cv::ipp_cvtColor, file C:\builds\master_PackSlaveAddon-win32-vc12-static\opencv\modules\imgproc\src\color.cpp, line 7456
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/OpenCV_Python/Python_Test.py", line 11, in <module>
    gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)

Please help. Thanks a lot in advance.

Isnt it the wrong number of channels? It is looking for 3 and there are 4? Inquiring minds want to know. :o)

basically, the frame you're trying to process is empty / invalid.

add some sanity checks, like:

import numpy as np
import cv2

cap = cv2.VideoCapture(0)

while(cap.isOpened()):  # check !
    # capture frame-by-frame
    ret, frame = cap.read()

    if ret: # check ! (some webcam's need a "warmup")
        # our operation on frame come here
        gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)

        # Display the resulting frame
        cv2.imshow('frame', gray)

    if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):
        break
# When everything is done release the capture
cap.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows()

import math

cap = cv2.VideoCapture(1)

To keep track of all point where object visited

center_points = deque()

while True: # Read and flip frame ret, frame = cap.read() frame = cv2.flip(frame, 1)

# Blur the frame a little
blur_frame = cv2.GaussianBlur(frame, (7, 7), 0)

# Convert from BGR to HSV color format
hsv = cv2.cvtColor(blur_frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2HSV)

# Define lower and upper range of hsv color to detect. Blue here
lower_blue = np.array([100, 50, 50])
upper_blue = np.array([140, 255, 255])
mask = cv2.inRange(hsv, lower_blue, upper_blue)

# Make elliptical kernel
kernel = cv2.getStructuringElement(cv2.MORPH_ELLIPSE, (15, 15))

# Opening morph(erosion
