What media player can play video backward?

Gurdit Singh Bedi June 2, 2013

i want a software which will be able to play video backwards?
For example a car and a truck crashed.
When playing video backwards the car and the truck will go apart.

How can I do this?

    If you just want to view a short segment backwards, open the video with Quicktime, hold the shift key and double click on the image. I'm doing this with a video to reassemble a smartphone. The original video is on how to disassemble it. When I let the shift key go, it stops while I carry out the steps on the phone of what I just viewed.

    You don't need a media player you need a video editor you can google and find some video editors for free.

    Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 (being a video editing software) is a free software download for Windows 7 from Microsoft and can play video backwards.

    The main way that videos are able to to be played in reverse is by encoding it with a video editor so that the video is backwards. Video players are not equipped with the ability to reencode videos on the fly since it requires more resources (multiple CPU and/or GPU processesas well as quite a bit of memory) or an external video and audio encoder to do the work before playing; the video would be exported onto the hard drive, then would be able to be played. Smooth playback during on-the-fly reencoding would require a high performance computer, which most computers sold to consumers are not, otherwise stuttering and lots of buffering would occur.

    I don't know of any player which can do this, but several video editors (e.g., iMovie) can do this. You can then render the movie and watch it backwards in any player.
