I’m running an application I made using openFrameworks v0.062 and the openCV addon, it uses blob detection with video source from a webcam and such. Anyway, I ran an extended test of the app, first a whole day running with no problems. Then I made an accelerated test by running the application and changing the hour of my computer before certain hours so that I could watch what would happen when a future event was triggered.
I found out that openCV stopped capturing video from a webcam after like 24 hours.
Now I can think of many things that could go wrong, but when the capture failed the application could still detect blobs and was still running perfectly. When I clicked on close it would crash and wouldn’t let me close it so I had to reboot. I also know that changing the hour of the computer might not be a good idea.
Any thoughts or experiences with this type of behaviour?
