Python VLC MediaPlayer – Getting Audio Output Devices
  • Last Updated : 19 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get list of output devices of 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. Audio output devices can be built in speaker or earphones as well as external speaker.

In order to do this we will use audio_output_device_enum method with the MediaPlayer object

Syntax : media_player.audio_output_device_enum()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns a None-terminated linked list of potential audio output devices. It must be freed with audio_output_device_list_release()

# 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)
  
# setting video scale
media_player.video_set_scale(0.6)
  
# 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 track
value = media_player.audio_output_device_enum()
  
# printing value
print("Audio Output Devices: ")
print(value)

Output :

Audio Output Devices:
