    Tracking faces

    I need something that helps me tracking faces from a camera live stream.

    I've tried with Microsoft's Face SDK and it works quite fine (even if it doesn't always work for no apparent reason).

    Now, reading this article, I found out that I can't use that SDK for a WP8 app.
    The article talks about an OpenCV based library which I already tried, and I don't like it that much (success rate is way too lower than the Microsoft's one).

    So here's the question:
    is there any GOOD library that will allow me to detect and track a face starting from a PhotoCamera stream?

    And, as a little bonus, is there any of this libraries that does the multiple tracking?

    No problem with the article, but the library that has been used there is doesn't work as I'd like.

    Face detection fails a lot of times, even more than the Microsoft's library.

    That's why I'm asking for some library which may be used on WP8 and, maybe, works better thant those 2

    Maybe you could try to improve picture with Imaging SDK to improve tracking?

    This is really a cool idea!

    Do you have any idea on how to use the Imaging SDK to improve the picture?
