cvplayer is a minimal wrapper around the ffpyplayer.MediaPlayer class for playing videos through
- interactive (direct access to the player through keymaps) or
- scripts (getting a VideoPlayer instance and doing whatever the user wants to)
audio playback and supplying frames is handles by ffpyplayer and OpenCV is used to display the frames
this makes it useful for simple interactable video playback as well for integrating video playback in programs
cvplayer provides the VideoPlayer class which is the main wrapper around the ffpyplayer.
Initializing a VideoPlayer instance will start playing the video according to the options specified while initializing. The Playback can be controlled from within the script as well as using keymaps.
the VideoPlayer class
this class initiates playback and provide methods to control/access the state of the player.
the filename of the media to be played
Here’s and example to play a video
from cvplayer import VideoPlayer player = VideoPlayer(filename) duration = int(player.get_metadata()['duration']) while player.state != 'eof': print(player.get_pts()) time.sleep(1)
