I'm trying to open a video

VideoCapture video_source; 
video_source = VideoCapture(); 
video_source.open("/home/thom/Downloads/output.mp4");

and I'm getting this message:

Unable to stop the stream: Inappropriate ioctl for device Could not open the stream file.

Any clue?

I am having a similar problem after installing on CentOS. cmake/installation completes without any errors.

import cv2 cv2.VideoCapture('path/to/video')

Maybe this might not be the best answer but it worked for me for OpenCV 3.1 instead of 3.2

Take a look at this thread: https://github.com/opencv/opencv/issu... , it solved the problem my similar me. Basically you only need to rebuild OpenCV with FFMPEG and it should work.
