Automating Windows Media Player PDF Print E-mail

I found this Windows Media Player example on a website:

You can automate  Microsoft Media Player with win32com without starting the GUI.This example opens and plays some media files:

# this program will play MP3, WMA, MID, WAV files via the WindowsMediaPlayer
from win32com.client import Dispatch
mp = Dispatch("WMPlayer.OCX")
# use an mp3 file you have ...
#tune = mp.newMedia("C:/Program Files/Common Files/HP/Memories Disc/2.0/audio/Swing.mp3")
# or copy one to the working folder ...
#tune = mp.newMedia("Bier1.mp3")
# you can also play wma files, this cool sound came with XP ...
tune = mp.newMedia("C:/WINDOWS/system32/oobe/images/title.wma")
# to stop playing use
raw_input("Press Enter to stop playing")

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
