OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a computer vision library that contains various functions to perform operations on Images or videos. OpenCV library can be used to perform multiple operations on videos.
Let’s see how to play a video using the OpenCV Python.
To capture a video, we need to create a
VideoCapture object. VideoCapture have the device index or the name of a video file. Device index is just the number to specify which camera. If we pass 0 then it is for first camera, 1 for second camera so on. We capture the video frame by frame.
cv2.VideoCapture(0): Means first camera or webcam. cv2.VideoCapture(1): Means second camera or webcam. cv2.VideoCapture("file name.mp4"): Means video file
Below is the implementation:
Note : Video file should have in same directory where program is executed.
