A library for reading simple uncompressedor RLE compressed AVI files.

Project description

A native Python library (other than it’s dependence on Numpy) to read uncompressed and RLE-compressed AVI files.

The following is a simple example showing how to iterate over the frames in an AVI file:

>>> import matplotlib
>>> matplotlib.use('TKAGG')
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> import avifilelib
>>> a = avifilelib.AviFile('sample.avi')
>>> for ct, frame in enumerate(a.iter_frames(stream_id=0)):
        _ = plt.imshow(frame, origin='lower')
        plt.gcf().savefig('frame_{:02d}.png'.format(ct))
>>> a.close()

See the API documentation for more information.
