Unable to read video files

Hello All,

I have installed the opencv 4.5.0 and VS2022 professional on windows 10 Enterprise system.
I am able to read the image (.jpg) file successfully, so I hope the include and library settings are set proper in VS.
Trying to run the small code to check if the video reads from the .mp4 file, I am unable to view the video file read, when I try to hit the debugger button I am getting the error message mentioned below with text version,

here is my code:

#include <opencv2/imgcodecs.hpp>
#include <opencv2/highgui.hpp>
#include <opencv2/imgproc.hpp>

#include <iostream>
using namespace cv;
using namespace std;

int main()
	auto path = "videos/ESB_ITI.mp4";
	VideoCapture cap(path);
	Mat img;

	while (true)

		imshow("video", img);

		return 0;

Could anyone help me out! Thanks in advance.

hehe, check your code again, the

return 0;

line should go after the loop

also, you must check, if the capture returned something valid
(the last frame of a video file will be empty() !)

if ( ! cap.read(img) )

That was my mistake :grinning:! thanks for noticing and helping me out.
Its working well now!
