what is this error?? why is this error?

  • check the .cfg file used, show us.
  • link us to where you copypasted that code & got that model

im sorry, cv is i imported cvlib as cv

please make sure, your downloaded cfg is the same as on the website (dl errrors do happen !)

hey berak, im actually new to this i know the theory behind the models etc.
this was supposed to be my first project detecting the change and classifying the objects for a cctv.
im using google colab, i really did not follow your last response, i dint comprehend.
can you please help me out wdym?

again, post your cfg file here, something is broken in your local copy.

it’s a simple ‘ini’ format, must be either of:
