In this article we will see how we can enable mouse input handling the MediaPlayer 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. MediPlyer object is the basic object in vlc module for playing the video. By input handling one can create event handler and can take mouse input to do actions. 
 

In order to do this we will use video_set_mouse_input method with the MediaPlayer object
Syntax : media_player.video_set_mouse_input(True)
Argument : It takes bool as argument
Return : It returns None 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing vlc module
import vlc
 
# importing time module
import time
 
 
# creating vlc media player object
media_player = vlc.MediaPlayer()
 
# media object
media = vlc.Media("death_note.mkv")
 
# setting media to the media player
media_player.set_media(media)
 
# making mouse input enable
media_player.video_set_mouse_input(True)
 
# start playing video
media_player.play()
 
# wait so the video can be played for 5 seconds
# irrespective for length of video
time.sleep(5)

Output : 
 

Another example 
Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing vlc module
import vlc
 
# importing time module
import time
 
# creating vlc media player object
media_player = vlc.MediaPlayer()
 
# media object
media = vlc.Media("1mp4.mkv")
 
# setting media to the media player
media_player.set_media(media)
 
# making mouse input enable
media_player.video_set_mouse_input(True)
 
 
# start playing video
media_player.play()
 
# wait so the video can be played for 5 seconds
# irrespective for length of video
time.sleep(5)

Output :
