In this article we will see how we can get the original file name of the video file in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Original file name is the name of the original video that existed in the first place i.e which was loaded, even after altering and editing of the video we can get the original name of the file.

We can load the video file clip with the help of command given below

clip = VideoFileClip(file_name)

In order to do this we will use filename attribute with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.filename

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string

Below is the implementation




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# loading video dsa gfg intro video 
clip = VideoFileClip("dsa_geek.webm")
  
# getting subclip from it
clip1 = clip.subclip(0, 10)
  
# resizing the clip1
clip1 = clip1.resize(0.5)
  
# rotating the clip1
clip1 = clip1.rotate(180)
  
# getting original file name of the clip
name = clip1.filename
  
# printing the name
print("File Name  : " + name)
  
  
print("---------------------------------------")
  
  
# showing final clip
clip1.ipython_display()

Output :

File Name  : dsa_geek.webm
---------------------------------------
Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4

Another example




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# loading video gfg
clip = VideoFileClip("geeks.mp4")
  
  
# getting subclip from it
clip1 = clip.subclip(0, 7)
  
# getting original file name of the clip
name = clip1.filename
  
# printing the name
print("File Name  : " + name)
  
  
print("---------------------------------------")
  
  
# showing final clip
clip1.ipython_display()

Output :

File Name  : geeks.mp4
