mpg321 wrapper for python - command line music player
mpyg321 is a simple python wrapper for mpg321 and mpg123. It allows you to easily play mp3 sounds in python, do basic operations on the music and implement callbacks for events like the end of a sound.
mpyg321 requires the installation of mpg123 (or mpg321 depending on your usage) software for reading mp3. This section describes the installation of the library on MacOS, Linux and Windows. For now, the library has only been tested on mac, but it should work on any platform.
We recommend using mpg123 since the project is more up to date. However, you can also use this library with mpg321 (using the
$ brew install mpg123 # or mpg321 $ pip3 install mpyg321
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install mpg123 # or mpg321 $ pip3 install mpyg321
For windows installation, download mpg123 on the website: mpg123's website, and then run:
$ pip install mpyg321
Usage is pretty straight forward, and all the functionnalities are easily shown in the examples folder.
from mpyg321.MPyg123Player import MPyg123Player # or MPyg321Player if you installed mpg321 player = MPyg123Player() player.play_song("/path/to/some_mp3.mp3")
You can implement callbacks for several events such as: end of song, user paused the music, ...
All the callbacks can be found inside the code of the
BasePlayer class and the
Most of the callbacks are implemented in the
callbacks.py example file.
In order to loop (replay the song when it ended), you can either set the loop mode when calling the
or programmatically set the loop mode anywhere in the code:
player.play_song("/path/to/sample.mp3) // Do some stuff ... player.set_loop(True)
Note: when calling
player.set_loop(True), the loop mode will only be taken into account at the end of a song. If nothing is playing, this call will not replay the previous song. In order to replay the previous song, you should call:
