I have a bunch of files from my camera and need to:

1) find all files where there are people

2) get a timestamp where people are present.

Do you know software preferably free, which can do this?

I've tried to google, but the search is full of - "find video on facebook" and etc.


This can be done with a combination of Python & OpenCV - both are Free, Gratis & Open Source and cross platform.

You can find a good write up and example in the PyImageSearch People Counter.

Picture is from the PyImageSearch web site.

Camlytics app for Windows. It can find people entering the camera sight and analyze video files. Free trial version can analyze one file.
