AVISource

avisource.AVISource(string path[, string pixel_type, string fourcc])
avisource.AVIFileSource(string path[, string pixel_type, string fourcc])
avisource.OpenDMLSource(string path[, string pixel_type, string fourcc])

Opens an AVI file using VFW in windows. AVISource should usually be the only function you have to use.

The only two options are fourcc, which overrides the fourcc stored in the AVI, and pixel_type, which tells the decoder to prefer a certain output format.

Accepted pixel_type values:

YV24, YV16, YV12, YV411, YUY2, Y8, RGB32, RGB24, RGB48, P010, P016, P210, P216, v210
