Fix Python – Play audio with Python

Question

Asked By – Josh Hunt

How can I play audio (it would be like a 1 second sound) from a Python script?

It would be best if it was platform independent, but firstly it needs to work on a Mac.

I know I could just execute the afplay file.mp3 command from within Python, but is it possible to do it in raw Python? I would also be better if it didn’t rely on external libraries.

Now we will see solution for issue: Play audio with Python


Answer

You can find information about Python audio here: http://wiki.python.org/moin/Audio/

It doesn’t look like it can play .mp3 files without external libraries. You could either convert your .mp3 file to a .wav or other format, or use a library like PyMedia.
