Please have a look at the windeployqt console app in the Qt folder. You need to add all the required dll to you Qt application. I suggest you to use msvc instead of mingw. With mingw sometimes it is very hard to link the application correctly.

2015-12-11 10:39:55 -0500 asked a question [Solved] CascadeClassifier.detectMultiScale crash on Mac OSX

I'm using OpenCV 3 on Windows, Linux and Mac. My program goes to crash when calling the function CascadeClassifier::detectMultiScale. This happens only on Mac but not on Linux, Windows. This is the Mac bug report:

I'm using Qt instead of xCode. The problem happens only if I have to use the function "cv::CascadeClassifier::detectMultiscale" Are you using that function with xCode? Can you try to use it only to verify if you have a link problem as I?

A long time ago I have uploaded a patch for OpenCv, to change input of a 4 inputs capture card but none have replied to me... But this is another problem. Now I have patched OpenCv to change input channel. The compilation ends correctly but, when I tried to compile my program, I have a problem with linking.

The patched files are:

2015-06-27 03:13:31 -0500 answered a question How many maximum cameras that openCV can handle ?

Hi. I normally use opencv with 8 cameras for each machine. Each camera in a thread. The problem isn't related to opencv but related to the hardware (If for example you are using a video card with one channel but more inputs. In this case you have to patch opencv and switch from a input to the other continuously)

2014-03-04 14:57:35 -0500 answered a question cv::BackgroundSubtractorMOG2, cv::CascadeClassifier(), thread contest

After many hours of research now I think it is a OpenCV bug. The behaviour happens with OpenCV and OpenCV 2.4.8 usando MinGW32. In order to compile OpenCV 2.4.8 with MinGW is necessary to patch the source code as is described here:

After that, if you want to obtain the behaviour, the only thing to do is to create a Qt project and in the main class add the following rows:

include "mainwindow.h"

include "ui_mainwindow.h"

include "opencv2/objdetect/objdetect.hpp"

include "opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp"

include "opencv2/imgproc/imgproc.hpp"

include <iostream>

include <stdio.h>

using namespace std; using namespace cv;

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) : QMainWindow(parent), ui(new Ui::MainWindow) { ui->setupUi(this); CascadeClassifier face_cascade; }

MainWindow::~MainWindow() { delete ui; }

Now which is the fastest way to obtain a good OpenCV release for MinGW?

2014-03-02 07:20:55 -0500 asked a question cv::BackgroundSubtractorMOG2, cv::CascadeClassifier(), thread contest

The objects in the subject send immediately my application to crash at the rows:

    CCEyes= new cv::CascadeClassifier();
    MOG2Background= new cv::BackgroundSubtractorMOG2();

The rows are in a thread, non in the mai crocess. That happens on Windows. On Linux all works well.

Have you got any suggestion?

2014-02-26 05:41:52 -0500 edited question Motion detection false alarms from light changes

In order to use the motion detection in my software with OpenCV, I use this elementary approach:

cv::GaussianBlur(Frame, Frame, cv::Size(5, 5), 0, 0, cv::BORDER_DEFAULT);
MOG2Background.operator ()(Frame, Foreground);
std::vector<std::vector<cv::Point> > Contours;
cv::findContours(Foreground, Contours, CV_RETR_EXTERNAL, CV_CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE);
cv::rectangle(Foreground, cv::Point(0, 0), cv::Point(Foreground.cols, Foreground.rows), cv::Scalar(0, 0, 0), CV_FILLED);
cv::drawContours(Foreground, Contours, -1, cv::Scalar(255, 255, 255), CV_FILLED);

This code works correctly but, if there is a flash light from the Window (by a car lights during the night for example) I obtain an alarm. How can I do to optimize my code?
