I'm trying to read in an mpg movie that's about 24minutes long, which is obviously too big to fit into memory. However, even when I take it in chunks, say 500 frames (about 8 seconds), there's still not enough memory to do anything with the data. Does this seem right?
My main issue is that I want to be able to track a (slow) moving object so I really need more than 8 seconds to adequately differentiate between the object and the background.
Is there a way to extend how much I'm able to read in so I can average over a larger sample, or to free the memory in a better way? Thanks for your help.
