love.video.newVideoStream

Available since LÖVE 0.10.0
This function is not supported in earlier versions.

Creates a new VideoStream. Currently only Ogg Theora video files are supported. VideoStreams can't draw videos, see love.graphics.newVideo for that.

O.png This function can be slow if it is called repeatedly, such as from love.update or love.draw. If you need to use a specific resource often, create it once and store it somewhere it can be reused!
