Python VLC MediaPlayer – Getting Width of selected video
  • Last Updated : 18 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the width 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. We can get the width of the selected video by passing the index of the video, if no index is specified ongoing video width is returned.

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

Syntax : media_player.video_get_width(n)

Argument : It takes integer as optional argument

Return : It returns integer



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 width at index 0
value = media_player.video_get_width(0)
  
# printing width
print("Width at Index 0 : ")
print(value)

Output :

Width at Index 0 : 
1280

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 width at index 0
value = media_player.video_get_width(0)
  
# printing width
print("Width at Index 0 : ")
print(value)

Output :

Width at Index 0 : 
854
