He will! Or I will ensure I get the code going (but since I’m a professor and school is starting up, I’ve got other classes I’m focusing on at the moment). But I will ensure it gets there soon.
As for OpenCV: yes, I think the problem is entirely openCV and not the machine. I have a high end Mac and it dropped frames like mad. And another person who is using this code on a decent linux box has the same issues. It seems to be an interaction between opencv and python 3 as I can get it to work for a little bit under python 2 (but then the dropped frames kick in). In python 3, I can’t even get it to work at all and with zero informative error messages. I’ve rebuilt opencv from scratch and even FFMPEG but it didn’t fix it. I posted on the forum a few days ago but no one answered so I’m guessing no one else has ideas either.
