telegram.InputMediaVideo

class telegram.InputMediaVideo(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: telegram.InputMedia

Represents a video to be sent.

Note

  • When using a telegram.Video for the media attribute, it will take the width, height and duration from that video, unless otherwise specified with the optional arguments.

  • thumb will be ignored for small video files, for which Telegram can easily generate thumbnails. However, this behaviour is undocumented and might be changed by Telegram.

Parameters
  • media (str | file object | bytes | pathlib.Path | telegram.Video) –

    File to send. Pass a file_id as String to send a file that exists on the Telegram servers (recommended), pass an HTTP URL as a String for Telegram to get a file from the Internet, or upload a new one. To upload a file, you can either pass a file object (e.g. open("filename", "rb")) or the file contents as bytes. If the bot is running in local_mode, passing the path of the file (as string or pathlib.Path object) is supported as well. Lastly you can pass an existing telegram.Video object to send.

    Changed in version 13.2: Accept bytes as input.

  • filename (str, optional) –

    Custom file name for the video, when uploading a new file. Convenience parameter, useful e.g. when sending files generated by the tempfile module.

    New in version 13.1.

  • caption (str, optional) – Caption of the video to be sent, 0-1024 characters after entities parsing.

  • parse_mode (str, optional) – Send Markdown or HTML, if you want Telegram apps to show bold, italic, fixed-width text or inline URLs in the media caption. See the constants in telegram.constants.ParseMode for the available modes.

  • caption_entities (List[telegram.MessageEntity], optional) – List of special entities that appear in the caption, which can be specified instead of parse_mode.

  • width (int, optional) – Video width.

  • height (int, optional) – Video height.

  • duration (int, optional) – Video duration in seconds.

  • supports_streaming (bool, optional) – Pass True, if the uploaded video is suitable for streaming.

  • thumb (file object | bytes | pathlib.Path | str, optional) –

    Thumbnail of the file sent; can be ignored if thumbnail generation for the file is supported server-side. The thumbnail should be in JPEG format and less than 200 kB in size. A thumbnail’s width and height should not exceed 320. Ignored if the file is not uploaded using multipart/form-data. Thumbnails can’t be reused and can be only uploaded as a new file. To upload a file, you can either pass a file object (e.g. open("filename", "rb")) or the file contents as bytes. If the bot is running in local_mode, passing the path of the file (as string or pathlib.Path object) is supported as well.

    Changed in version 13.2: Accept bytes as input.
