Someone from Valve suggested that I do pretty much what you suggested. So I'll make your answer as correct. Though it might be the case then that it is not possible just thru OpenCV.

Ok so I need to do it thru OpenVR? Meaning, OpenCV itself cannot really access the camera frames?

Hi,

I'm trying to get frames from the HTC Vive front facing camera but I'm only getting seemingly gray frames out (though they are theoretically not empty).

My code looks like this:

int main() {
VideoCapture videoSource(0);

    Size size{
        (int)videoSource.get(CV_CAP_PROP_FRAME_WIDTH),
        (int)videoSource.get(CV_CAP_PROP_FRAME_HEIGHT)
    };


namedWindow("input", WINDOW_NORMAL);
resizeWindow("input", size.width, size.height);

Mat frameIn;

auto p1 = videoSource.get(CAP_PROP_MODE);
auto p2 = videoSource.get(CAP_PROP_FORMAT);
auto p3 = videoSource.get(CAP_PROP_FPS);
unsigned f = (unsigned)videoSource.get(CV_CAP_PROP_FOURCC);

char fourcc[] = {
    (char)f,
    (char)(f >> 8),
    (char)(f >> 16),
    (char)(f >> 24),
    '\0'
};

cout << "\n\nCAPTURE DEVICE\n---------------"
    << "\nmode: " << p1
    << "\nformat: " << p2
    << "\nfps: " << p3
    << "\nFOURCC: " << string(fourcc)
    << "\nsize: " << size;

// One frame, to check info:
videoSource >> frameIn;

cout << "\n\nFRAME IN (MAT):\n--------------" 
    << "\ntype: " << frameIn.type() 
    << "\ndepth: " << frameIn.depth() 
    << "\nsize: " << frameIn.size();


while (!frameIn.empty()) {
    imshow("input", frameIn);

    char key = waitKey(10);

    if (key == 27) {
        cvDestroyAllWindows();
        break;
    }

    videoSource >> frameIn;
}

return 0;
}

And the output (other than a gray window) is:

CAPTURE DEVICE

mode: 0 format: 0 fps: 30.0003 FOURCC: YUY2 size: [612 x 460]

FRAME IN (MAT):

type: 16 depth: 0 size: [612 x 460]

I'm new to OpenCV so I might be missing something obvious. But from the above, it seems like the camera is being detected. The 4cc is yuy2 though, but it still returns 0 for mode and format.

When I check frameIn.empty() is returns false, but as you can see, there doesn't seem to be anything in the mats.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
