In this article we will see how we can get the size of the video file clip in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Size is basically dimensions of the video, normally the higher the dimension of the video, the higher is the quality of the video. Displaying size is different from the actual size of the video clip.

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

Syntax : clip.size

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns tuple

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.mp4"
     
# getting only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
  
# getting clip size
value = clip.size
  
# printing size
print("Clip Size ", end = " : ")
print(value)
  
  
# displaying new clip
clip.ipython_display(width = 420)

Output :

Clip Size  : (854, 480)
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 only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
  
# getting clip size
value = clip.size
  
# printing size
print("Clip Size ", end = " : ")
print(value)
  
  
# displaying new clip
clip.ipython_display(width = 420)

Output :

Clip Size  : (656, 404)

Moviepy - Done !
