A simple interface for playing music from an MP3 file.
Allows your Windows Python program to play and stop MP3s, without opening an external player or requiring any external programs. A very simple interface for the common case (playing an entire MP3), with an API for more complex tasks (e.g. playing from seconds 30 to 45 of an MP3).
Note: if you are looking for complex cross-platform audio control, try pyglet. After easy_installing pyglet, it requires a separate manual installation of AVlib libraries, which is why I wrote mp3play as an easy_installable alternative.
Play the first 30 seconds of a file:import mp3play filename = r'C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\Desktop\music.mp3' clip = mp3play.load(filename) clip.play() import time time.sleep(min(30, clip.seconds())) clip.stop()
Requires Windows XP at the moment, but the goal is to make a cross-platform module. Feel free to send patches to add Linux and Mac support! Note that the module’s purpose is to be easy_installable with no other work needed by the user, so things like AVLib are out unless that can be easy_installed automatically alongside mp3play.
Get with svn co http://mp3play.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ mp3play-read-only
Please let me know if you like or use this module - it would make my day!
