PySceneDetect Documentation

Welcome to the PySceneDetect docs. The docs are split into two separate parts: one for the command-line interface (the scenedetect command) and another for the Python API (the scenedetect module).

You can install the latest release of PySceneDetect by running pip install scenedetect[opencv] or downloading the Windows build from PySceneDetect requires ffmpeg or mkvmerge for video splitting support.


If you see any errors in the documentation, or want to suggest improvements, feel free to raise an issue on the PySceneDetect issue tracker.
