PYGLET – Seek Media in Player
  • Last Updated : 24 Sep, 2020

In this article we will see how we can seek media of player of 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). 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. Seek for playback to the indicated timestamp on the current source. Timestamp is expressed in seconds. If the timestamp is outside the duration of the source, it will be clamped to the end.

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 =

In order to do this we use seek play method with the player object

Syntax :

Argument : It takes integer as argument

Return : It returns None

Below is the implementation

# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
# width of window 
width = 500
# height of window 
height = 500
# caption i.e title of the window 
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
# creating a window 
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title) 
# video path
vidPath ="gfg.mp4"
# creating a media player object
player =
# creating a source object
source =
# load the media from the source
MediaLoad =
# add this media in the queue
# play the video
# on draw event
def on_draw():
    # clea the window
    # if player sorce exist
    # and video format exist
    if player.source and player.source.video_format:
        # get the texture of video and
        # make surface to display on the screen
        player.get_texture().blit(0, 0)
# key press event     
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier): 
    # key "p" get press 
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.P: 
        # pause the video
        # printing message
        print("Video is paused")
    # key "r" get press 
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.R: 
        # resume the video
        # printing message
        print("Video is resumed")
# seek video at time stamp = 4
# pause the video
# run the pyglet application
