Project description


PyPI version PyPI pyversions Build Status codecov Codacy Badge

A simple Python script to break videos into frames. This package does NOT require ffmpeg.


VideoToFrames requires Python 3.4+

pip install videotoframes

Example Usage:

VideoToFrames can be run from any command prompt or imported into a Python project.

Assuming there is a video at ./videos/example.mp4 and you want to create frames in ./frames:

videotoframes -i ./vidoes/example.mp4 -o ./frames

If you want to create a limited number of frames that are evenly distributed:

videotoframes -i ./videos/example.mp4 -o ./frames --max-frames=20 --even

You can also use VideoToFrames with many videos at once:

videotoframes -i ./videos -o ./frames

Using VideoToFrames in a Python project:

from videotoframes import convert

video_base_64 = '...'
frames = convert(video_base_64=video_base_64, max_frames=10, frame_rate=1)
