Python VLC MediaListPlayer – Getting Current State
  • Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can current state of the MediaListPlayer object in the python vlc module. VLC media player is a free and open-source portable cross-platform media player software and streaming media server developed by the VideoLAN project. Media list player is used to play multiple media in a row for example playing a series, instead of taking single media it accepts media list. Its working is almost similar like the MediaPlayer object but it is capable of playing list of media. State can be playing paused or closed, we can pause and resume the media list player any time with the help of set_pause method, and it can be start playing with the help of play method.

In order to do this we will use get_state method with the MediaListPlayer object

Syntax : media_list_player.get_state()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns State object

# creating Instance class object
player = vlc.Instance()
  
# creating a new media list object
media_list = player.media_list_new()
  
# creating a new media
media = player.media_new("death_note.mkv")
  
# 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)
  
# getting media player current state
value = media_player.get_state()
  
# printing value
print(value)
