In this article we will see how we can show 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 ipython_display method with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.ipython_display(width, height)

Argument : It takes two optional arguments i.e integers

Return : It returns HTML2 object

Note : Video length should not be too large else it will give memory error therefore to take care of this error clip the small part of video from original video.

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, height = 320)

Output :

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")
  
  
# showing clip
clip.ipython_display()

Output :

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