What change I have to do in given code below to detect white color from video and get it's brightness.

hsvImage = rgb2hsv(double(rgbImage));
h = hsvImage(:,:,1);
s = hsvImage(:,:,2);
v = hsvImage(:,:,3);
whitePixels = s < 0.2 & v > 0.8;
or something like that.
whitePixels is a binary image, or "mask". Feel free to modify the parameters.
See my demo where I track a green Sharpie pen.

It works for me. Was that for my demo video, or for one of yours? If you put a breakpoint on this line and execute it,
% Setup other parameters
numberOfFrames = videoObject.NumberOfFrame;
what does it say numberOfFrames is? Is the videoObject a valid object?
