In this article we will see how we can set media list to 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. MediaList object is the object having multiple media inside it, it allows MediaListPlayer to play more than one media.

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

Syntax : media_list_player.set_media_list(media_list)

Argument : It takes MediaList object as argument

Return : It returns None

Below is the implementation




# importing vlc module
import vlc
  
# importing time module
import time
  
# creating a media player object
media_player = vlc.MediaListPlayer()
  
# 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()

Output :
