By no means an issue with this fine library, just a humble plea: Support for Camshift would be super awesome! It's the perfect companion for the cascade classifier:

Anyways, thanks for this fantastic effort, I had quite some fun with it already. Keep up the good work!

WIP on camshift - have a smoke example, but bad results are coming back.

A basic version of this is now in master.

Thanks again for doing this, your example works great!

Funny though, when I change examples/motion-track.js to use this movie here with a (detected face) region of [ 642, 225, 870, 453 ], already the first tracked rectangle is much bigger, and it gets worse with every frame.

I compared your to the Opencv example and could not spot any obvious differences. I also used the same commandline to convert the movie as examples/

Any idea what is going on?


Was curious the progress on this, wanting to do something similar with this.
