Dear seniors,

I am a newbie in wxPython and I have to write a code that can immediately start playing a video after I load the file. I have been going through a lot of forums tried to implement 10 - 20 codes, but the wx.media is not playing the video file at all. I am able to load the file but not play it.

:(

I need a simple code in which I will manually enter the path name of the video file and after this file is loaded it should start playing.

I am using windows XP, Python 2.7 and wxPython for Python 2.7.

I would be very grateful to all of you if you could help me on this one.

Thanking you.

Post your code and the error messages

import wx 
import wx.media
import os

class Panel1(wx.Panel):
    def __init__(self, parent, id):
        #self.log = log
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent, -1, style=wx.TAB_TRAVERSAL|wx.CLIP_CHILDREN)
 
        # Create some controls
        try:
            self.mc = wx.media.MediaCtrl(self, style=wx.SIMPLE_BORDER)
        except NotImplementedError:
            self.Destroy()
            raise
        self.mc.Load("C:\Users\Rohit\Videos\Debut\paint.wmv")
        #self.slider.SetRange(0, self.mc.Length())
        #folder, filename = os.path.split("C:\Documents and Settings\N1002401B\Desktop\test1.wmv")
        
        self.mc.Play()
        
class MyApp(wx.App): 
    def OnInit(self): 
        frame = MyFrame(None,'Form1') 
        frame.Show(True) 
        return True 
app = wx.PySimpleApp()
# create a window/frame, no parent, -1 is default ID
frame = wx.Frame(None, -1, "play audio and video files", size = (320, 350))
# call the derived class
Panel1(frame, -1)
frame.Show(1)
app.MainLoop()

This code is not working at all. It is not giving any error but it does not open up the video at all. It just shows a gray screen.

You are not using class MyApp anywhere, why it is there?

Dear sir,

I am really sorry for my mistake. I did not see that part of the code at all. I have been so much focused on getting the self.mc.play() section working I completely overlooked the MyApp class. I am sorry for the mistake. Can you tell me why is it that even after I load the file still the video does not?

My modified code is :

import wx 
import wx.media
 
class Panel1(wx.Panel):
    def __init__(self, parent, id):
        #self.log = log
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent, -1, style=wx.TAB_TRAVERSAL|wx.CLIP_CHILDREN)
 
        # Create some controls
        try:
            self.mc = wx.media.MediaCtrl(self, style=wx.SIMPLE_BORDER)
        except NotImplementedError:
            self.Destroy()
            raise
        self.mc.Load("C:\Users\Rohit\Videos\Debut\paint.wmv")
        #self.slider.SetRange(0, self.mc.Length())
        #folder, filename = os.path.split("C:\Documents and Settings\N1002401B\Desktop\test1.wmv")
 
        self.mc.Play()
 

app = wx.PySimpleApp()
# create a window/frame, no parent, -1 is default ID
frame = wx.Frame(None, -1, "play audio and video files", size = (320, 350))
# call the derived class
Panel1(frame, -1)
frame.Show(1)
app.MainLoop()
