I have been working and doing research into how to build the opencv_ffmpegxxx.dll.
I’m working with OpenCV 4.5.5, the contrib modules and Visual Studio 2019. I AM able to compile OpenCV to dll’s and the world version but getting ffmpeg to build is beyond me.
I set the ffmpeg setting in CMake. Nothing, though I do see a number of mentions in the world dll. Perhaps it is being built but if so, I still can’t use that version with Darknet since it “appears” to need the opencv_ffmpegxxx.dll.
After scouring the web I’ve downloaded many versions of ffmpeg. I’ve tried to build them separately, which won’t work for my needs, but I tried. I tried replacing the code in the opencv-master version but still no dll build.
There surely must be a simple and straightforward way to do this. I’m working with Windows 10, Visual Studio 2019, C++, and OpenCV 4.5.5 with the extra modules.
Any ideas out there? I don’t mind if it’s so simple that I completely overlooked it. I would simply like to build the complete version of OpenCV with the ffmpeg dll.
