In this article we will see how we can set media 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. MediaPlayer object is the basic object in vlc module for playing the video. We can create a MediaPlayer object with the help of MediaPlayer method. Media can be video or even audio that is supported by vlc.

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

Syntax : media_player.set_media(media) 

Argument : It takes Media object as argument 

Return : It returns None

# 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)
