C++ OpenCV program to play a video



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Description::
This is a C++ program to play a video file by capturing frame by frame and displaying it. Instead of video file webcam live stream can also be played just by writing 0(zero) in place of video file name in VideoCapture object initialisation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Program::
#include <opencv2/opencv.hpp>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
using namespace cv; 

int main()
{
      VideoCapture cap("vdo.mp4");          
// Creating VideoCapture object and opening input file
                                                                           // If the input is the web camera, pass 0 instead of the video file name
      if(!cap.isOpened())
      {                                //Checking if opened
               cout << "Error opening video stream or file" << endl;
               return -1;
      }
      while(1)
      {
               Mat frame;                                             
// Creating Mat object
               cap >> frame;                                         // Capture frame-by-frame 
               if (frame.empty())
                               // If the frame is empty, break immediately
                       break;
                imshow( "VdoFrame", frame );        
// Display the frame
                char a=(char)waitKey(25);
                //Press ESC on keyboard to exit/
                if(a==27)
                      break;
         }
         cap.release();
                                         // When everything done, release the video capture object 
         destroyAllWindows();                           // Closes all the frames
         return 0;
}

Commands to run program on terminal::
g++ -ggdb `pkg-config --cflags vdop` -o `basename cvopen .cpp` filename `pkg-config --libs opencv`

$ ./vdop

Output::

And the video plays...
