pymad is a Python module that allows Python programs to use the MPEG Audio Decoder library.
pymad provides a high-level API, similar to the
pyogg module, which makes reading PCM data from MPEG audio streams a piece of cake.
pymad is as easy as:
#!/usr/bin/env python import mad, ao, sys
mf = mad.MadFile(sys.argv) dev = ao.AudioDevice(‘oss’, rate=mf.samplerate()) while 1: buf = mf.read() if buf is None: break dev.play(buf, len(buf))
pymad uses the Python distutils tool. To build and install
pymad, install python and libmad development files, and then:
# python config_unix.py –prefix /usr/local # python setup.py build # python setup.py install –prefix /usr/local
Remember to make sure
/usr/local/python/site-packages/ is in your Python search path.
