In python I am looking for a python module that I can use to play videos. That module should allow to

  • play videos as you could play them with e.g. mplayer
  • pause them
  • stop them
  • make them fullscreen
  • seek the current position
  • set the position.

Alternatively I tried to have run mplayer run in subprocess, but this does not catch the status line of mplayer to see where the video is at the moment.

It must work on MacOS.

I want to write a small program to watch videos, which I can stop at any time, and the program saves the position, so it can resume from that position the next time (without having to remember a scene where I stopped, without me forwarding to some timestamp etc)
