In this article we will see how we can load a 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. Visual multimedia source that combines a sequence of images to form a moving picture. The video transmits a signal to a screen and processes the order in which the screen captures should be shown. Videos usually have audio components that correspond with the pictures being shown on the screen.
In order to do this we will use VideoFileClip method Syntax : VideoFileClip(“file_name”) Argument : It takes name or address of the file Return : It returns VideoFileClip object
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 as video is large
clip = clip.subclip(0, 10)
  
  
# showing clip
clip.ipython_display(width = 280)

                    
Output :
Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
