MoviePy – Showing Video File Clip

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.

# 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)
