hi, all of you today I am going to let you know how to play media such videos using programming . in this section we will be playing video using python programming language.

To playing such kind of media you need to install an open cv module in your system .open cv ( Open Source Computer Vision Library ) is an open-source computer vision and machine learning software library.

Before running the below code first check if your system has a cv2 module or not. if not open (command prompt, terminal, windows power shell ) and copy given below line and paste in your terminal and hit the enter button. pip install opencv-python (make sure you are in python installed folder(directory)).

Simple example of cv is given below:

import cv2
#give your own video path.
cap = cv2.VideoCapture("D:\python programs\open cv\movie.mp4") 
while True:
    ret , frame=cap.read()
    if ret==True:
        cv2.imshow('video', frame) 
        if cv2.waitKey(25) & 0xFF == ord('q'): 
            break
    else:
        break
cap.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows() 

Now you are able to play video using python.
