Videos can be imported by using the associated import dialog button or by drag and dropping video files onto the dropzone area of the import dialog.

Any common videos with monophonic or stereophonic audio channels can be imported that way.

Videos are constantly playing, the playback rate parameter in the input settings can be changed to 0 to stop videos.

Videos are useful as a quick way to produce visuals within Fragment.

Fragment videos features

  • loop settings
  • playback rate (play backward or forward at any supported rates)
  • OSC control (see osc section)

Just like sounds import, videos audio channel can be imported into Fragment by checking the corresponding checkbox in the audio import settings panel, see sounds import section for more details related to sounds import


Since videos are converted to images and sounds, see images import and sounds import section for its usage and import settings

Videos have specific settings which are

Playback rate

This control the playback rate of the video the default playback value is 1, a value of less than 1 will play the video slowly while a value higher than 1 will play it fast

Video start

This control the starting point of the video, the video duration is normalized to 0 - 1 range

This also seek automatically the video to the start point when changed

Video end

This control the ending point of the video, the video duration is normalized to 0 - 1 range


  • Video normalized play position is accessible within the Fragment shader as fvidN where N is the input ID.
  • Imported videos are not saved, instead videos input will be seen as a broken input upon session reload which act as a dummy input until you replace it, videos are not saved because they can be quite large and this may introduce issues on usability.
  • Videos can be rewinded quickly from the input menu (left click on a video input to open the menu)
