### VideoCapture from file

Hi, I'm kinda new to opencv, and cant figure out what i'm doing wrong while opening a video file with VideoCapture. I only use this simple code:

#

import cv2

cap = cv2.VideoCapture()

cap.open("Field.avi")

print cap.isOpened()

#

I tried installing k-lite's most updated codec pack, and several more. Still, I get 'False'.

Needless to say, the video is in the same folder as the py file.

The video works on the media player.

Thanks!
