python - how to save pygame camera as video output - Stack Overflow




1down vote

Pygame's multimedia output capabilities are severily limited: It can only save uncompressed BMP images, and there is no way it can save a video format.

You have to make use of another library which to feed image frames, to render the video - or save frame by frame in a folder, numbering the file names in crescent order, and convert the result to a video with an utility later.

This project seens to feature a class to call libffmpeg to encode videos, passing frame by frame in a Python call: ​​​​ - you will just need a way to convert the pygame Surface object to the expected "frameraw" attribute of ffmpeg.





i´m not at home now but my workarround is take the pygame surface and convert to numpy array and write with opencv to mp4 movie.
