SOD C/C++ API Reference - OpenCV Integration


sod_img sod_img_load_from_cv_stream(CvCapture *cap);


Capture a frame from an OpenCV CvCapture device. The library must be compiled against OpenCV with the compile-time directive SOD_ENABLE_OPENCV defined. On success, a memory representation of the target image is returned in an instance of the sod_img object which can be processed or analyzed via the exported interfaces.


CvCapture    *cap

Valid pointer to an OpenCV CvCapture device.

Return Value

Target frame is returned in an instance of the sod_img object. if something goes wrong during loading, then an empty image is returned via sod_make_empty_image(). Once done, you must release the memory allocated to this object via sod_free_image() to avoid memory leaks.
