Python VLC MediaPlayer – Getting Title Description
  • Last Updated : 18 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the title description 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. Unlike full title description it is short and description which is freed with track_description_list_release.

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

Syntax : media_player.video_get_title_description()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns list



Below is the implementation




# importing vlc module
import vlc
  
# importing time module
import time
  
  
# creating vlc media player object
media_player = vlc.MediaPlayer()
  
# media resource locator
mrl = "death_note.mkv"
  
# setting mrl to the media player
media_player.set_mrl(mrl)
  
# 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 title description
value = media_player.video_get_title_description()
  
# printing title description
print("Title description : ")
print(value)

Output :

Title description : 
<vlc.LP_TrackDescription object at 0x0000014853CB2548

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 resource locator
mrl = "1.mp4"
  
# setting mrl to the media player
media_player.set_mrl(mrl)
  
# 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 cursor co-ordinates
value = media_player.video_get_cursor()
  
# getting title description
value = media_player.video_get_title_description()
  
# printing title description
print("Title description : ")
print(value)

Output :

Title description : 
<vlc.LP_TrackDescription object at 0x0000014853CB25A1
