Capturing the https youtube videostream with OpenCV

Hi to everyone! I am trying to find the way how to capture httsp youtube video stream using OpenCV 4.5.2 (C++). Could anybody please show a small code example of how to do it? Thabk you

This way doesnt work:
cv::VideoCapture source("");

that’s a complex problem.

if you’re lucky, ffmpeg can do it. opencv’s videocapture can use ffmpeg.

test with standalone ffmpeg. that means without OpenCV. IF that works, try with opencv.

the url is unfortunately NOT a Video stream,
but a html web page, which in turn loads a js video player,
which actually loads a stream.

you’ll have to parse html first, to retrieve the resp. data, ggl will tell you how to do that

Yes, it doesn’t help
