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. Toggle fullscreen status on non-embedded video outputs. by default media is not in the full screen mode.

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

import time
 
 
# creating vlc media player object
media_player = vlc.MediaPlayer()
 
# toggling full screen
media_player.toggle_fullscreen()
 
 
# media object
media = vlc.Media("death_note.mkv")
 
# setting media to the media player
media_player.set_media(media)

media_player.play()
 
# wait so the video can be played for 5 seconds
# irrespective for length of video
time.sleep(5)
