Determine if frame is available to read


tf = hasFrame(v)



tf = hasFrame(v) returns logical 1 (true) if there is a video frame available to read from the file. Otherwise, it returns logical 0 (false).

Create a VideoReader object for the example movie file, xylophone.mp4.

v = VideoReader('xylophone.mp4');

Read all video frames.

while hasFrame(v)
    video = readFrame(v);
whos video
  Name         Size                Bytes  Class    Attributes

  video      240x320x3            230400  uint8              

Read and play back the sample movie file, xylophone.mp4.

Create a VideoReader object to read data from the sample file. Then, determine the width and height of the video.

xyloObj = VideoReader('xylophone.mp4');

vidWidth = xyloObj.Width;
vidHeight = xyloObj.Height;

Create a movie structure array, mov.

mov = struct('cdata',zeros(vidHeight,vidWidth,3,'uint8'),...

Read one frame at a time until the end of the video is reached.

k = 1;
while hasFrame(xyloObj)
    mov(k).cdata = readFrame(xyloObj);
    k = k+1;

Size a figure based on the width and height of the video. Then, play back the movie once at the video frame rate.

hf = figure;
set(hf,'position',[150 150 vidWidth vidHeight]);
