pyomxplayer

Python wrapper module around OMXPlayer for the Raspberry Pi.

Unlike other implementations, this module does not rely on any external scripts and FIFOs, but uses the pexpect module for communication with the OMXPlayer process.

CPU overhead is rather low (~3% for the Python process on my development RPi) and the object-oriented design makes it easy to re-use in other projects.

Installation:

git clone https://github.com/jbaiter/pyomxplayer.git
python pyomxplayer/setup.py install

Example:

>>> from pyomxplayer import OMXPlayer
>>> from pprint import pprint
>>> omx = OMXPlayer('/tmp/video.mp4')
>>> pprint(omx.__dict__)
{'_position_thread': <Thread(Thread-5, started 1089234032)>,
'_process': <pexpect.spawn object at 0x1a435d0>,
'audio': {'bps': 16,
        'channels': 2,
        'decoder': 'mp3',
        'rate': 48000,
        'streams': 1},
'chapters': 0,
'current_audio_stream': 1,
'current_volume': 0.0,
'paused': True,
'position': 0.0,
'subtitles': 0,
'subtitles_visible': False,
'video': {'decoder': 'omx-mpeg4',
        'dimensions': (640, 272),
        'fps': 23.976025,
        'profile': 15,
        'streams': 1}}
>>> omx.toggle_pause()
>>> omx.position
9.43
>>> omx.stop()
