In this article we will see how we can get the event manager 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. We can create a MediaPlayer object with the help of MediaPlayer method. Event manager object contains the cached value.

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

Syntax : media_player.event_manager()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns EventManager object

Below is the implementation




# 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)
  
  
# 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 event manager object
value = media_player.event_manager()
  
# printing value
print("Event Manager : ")
print(value)

Output :

Event Manager : 
vlc.EventManager object at 0x0000020034BF3C48

Another example
Below is the implementation




# 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)
  
  
  
# 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 event manager object
value = media_player.event_manager()
  
# printing value
print("Event Manager : ")
print(value)

Output :

Event Manager : 
vlc.EventManager object at 0x0000020036BF3CA1
