In this article we will see how we can create a simple media player in PYGLET module in python. Pyglet is easy to use but powerful library for developing visually rich GUI applications like games, multimedia etc. A window is a “heavyweight” object occupying operating system resources. Windows may appear as floating regions or can be set to fill an entire screen (fullscreen). In order to load a file i.e resource we use resource module of pyglet. This module allows applications to specify a search path for resources. Pyglet can play WAV files, and if FFmpeg is installed, many other audio and video formats. Playback is handled by the Player class, which reads raw data from Source objects and provides methods for pausing, seeking, adjusting the volume, and so on. The Player class implements the best available audio device.
We can create a window and player object with the help of commands given below
# creating a window window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title) # creating a player for media player = pyglet.media.Player()
In order to play a media in pyglet we have to do the follwing
1. Create pyglet window
2. Create a player object
3. Load the media by player from the path of media
4. Add loaded media in the queue of player
5. Play the video
6. Create a key press event handler which is used to pause and resume the video
Below is the implementation
Key : P is pressed Video is paused Key : R is pressed Video is resumed Key : P is pressed Video is paused Key : R is pressed Video is resumed
