Python VLC MediaPlayer – Getting Current Audio Channel
  • Last Updated : 19 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the current audio channel 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. An audio channel or audio track is an audio signal communications channel in a storage device or mixing console, used in operations such as multi-track recording and sound reinforcement. It can be set with the help of audio_set_channel method.

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

Syntax : media_player.audio_get_channel(n)

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns channel id

# 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)
  
  
# setting audio channel
media_player.audio_set_channel(1)
  
# setting volume
media_player.audio_set_volume(80)
  
# 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 current channel
value = media_player.audio_get_channel()
  
# printing value
print("Current Audio Channel : ")
print(value)

Output :

Current Audio Channel :
