In this article we will see how we can play the video file clip in loop i.e n times in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Video is formed by the frames, combination of frames creates a video each frame is an individual image. We can display a video with the help of ipython_display method and we can preview a video with the help of preview method. But when we display a video there is no looping although we can add looping to it any time i.e when we display the video file it will start playing replaying itself n times.

In order to do this we will use ipython_display method with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.clip.ipython_display(loop = n)

Argument : It takes loop = integer as argument

Return : It returns None

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 only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
  
# looping video 3 times
clip.ipython_display(loop = 3)

Output :

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

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4


This video will get played 3 times in continuous loop

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)
  
# looping video 3 times
clip.ipython_display(loop = 3)

Output :

Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
MoviePy - Writing audio in __temp__TEMP_MPY_wvf_snd.mp3
                                                                                                                       
MoviePy - Done.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4


This video will get played 3 times in continuous loop
