LoadPlugin(string path, bint altsearchpath = False)¶
Load a native VapourSynth plugin. If successful, the loaded plugin’s functions will end up in their own namespace.
Returns an error if a plugin with the same identifier or namespace already has been loaded. This is to prevent naming collisions or multiple versions of the same plugin being loaded at once.
Plugins are normally loaded with a very specific search order for dependencies. Setting altsearchpath modifies this behavior to also include dlls in the PATH.
Beware of Python’s escape character, this will fail:
LoadPlugin(path='c:/plugins/filter.dll') LoadPlugin(path=r'c:\plugins\filter.dll') LoadPlugin(path='c:\\plugins\\filter.dll')
