Using VideoReader:
obj = VideoReader(vidfullfile);
obj.NumOfFrames
Using vision.VideoFileReader:
videoFileReader = vision.VideoFileReader(vidfullfile);
count= 0;
while ~isDone(videoFileReader)
% Read a video frame and run the detector.
videoFrame = step(videoFileReader);
count= ind+1;
end
But obj.NumOfFrames does not equal to count for my video file. Actually count = obj.NumOfFrames+1.
Can anyone explain this?
Thanks, Zhong

If you try:
>>obj = VideoReader('atrium.avi');
>> obj
obj = VideoReader with properties:
General Properties:
Name: 'atrium.avi'
Path: 'C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2015a\toolbox\vision\visiondata'
Duration: 47
CurrentTime: 0
Tag: ''
UserData: []
Video Properties:
Width: 640
Height: 360
FrameRate: 30
BitsPerPixel: 24
VideoFormat: 'RGB24'
you will see that, only Duration and FrameRate are available. So the number of frames can be calculated as: Duration x FrameRate = 47 x 30 = 1410

In my experiment, the actural frame number is 296, however, the durition is 9.9200 and the fps is 30. floor(9.92*30) = 297

Best method: (Direct by calculating right parameters, confirmed by ffmpeg)
Cmd ->
ffprobe.exe -v error -select_streams v:0 -show_entries stream=r_frame_rate,duration -of default=nw=1 "d:\movies\The.Matrix.1999.1080p.BrRip.x264.YIFY.dut.mp4"
Result ->
r_frame_rate=24000/1001
duration=8177.794625
Calculation ->
Frames=24000/1001*8177.794625=196071 (exactly... ;P)
Proof ->
ffmpeg -i "d:\movies\The.Matrix.1999.1080p.BrRip.x264.YIFY.dut.mp4" -f null /dev/null
