In this video I’ll show you how to create a basic Video Player with Kivy!

Kivy comes with a basic videoplayer that you can use to do very basic video things.

There aren’t a lot of options to fiddle with, but if you just need to show a video in your app, this will work just fine.

#kivy #codemy

Python Code:
GitHub Code:

from kivy.lang import Builder
from import MDApp
from kivy.uix.videoplayer import VideoPlayer

class MainApp(MDApp):
	title = "Simple Video"
	def build(self):
		self.theme_cls.theme_style = "Dark"
		self.theme_cls.primary_palette = "BlueGray"
        # Create videoPlayer Instance
		player = VideoPlayer(source = "videos/intro.mp4")
		# Assign VideoPlayer State
		player.state = 'play'

		# Set options
		player.options = {'eos': 'loop'}

		# Allow stretch
		player.allow_stretch = True

		# Return player
		return player
