# 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 volume
media_player.audio_set_volume(80)
  
# start playing video
media_player.play()
  
# wait so the video can be played for 5 seconds
