# creating a media list object
media_list = vlc.MediaList()
  
# creating a new media
media = player.media_new("death_note.mkv")
  
# adding media to media list
media_list.add_media(media)
  
# creating a new media
media = player.media_new("1.mp4")
  
# adding media to media list
media_list.add_media(media)
  
# setting media list to the media player
media_player.set_media_list(media_list)
  
  
# start playing video
media_player.play()
  
# wait so the video can be played for 5 seconds
# irrespective for length of video
time.sleep(5)
