Loading and playing background music in Pygame means that you can load music or sound files into your Pygame program, and then play them while the game is running. This could be used to create a more immersive gaming experience or to add a soundtrack to your game.


Pygame is a cross-platform set of Python modules designed for writing video games. It includes computer graphics and sound libraries designed to be used with the Python programming language. Pygame is highly portable and runs on nearly every platform and operating system. It is one of the most popular libraries for game development with Python.


Here is an example of loading and playing background music in Pygame


Code


In this solution, we use mixer class of Pygame.

Instructions

Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install Jupyter Notebook on your computer.
  2. Open terminal and install the required libraries with following commands.
  3. Install Pygame - pip install pygame.
  4. Copy the code using the "Copy" button above, and paste it into your IDE's Python file.
  5. Import pygame.
  6. Add pygame.mixer.init() for initializing mixer.
  7. Add your audio file.
  8. Run the file to get the output.


I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.


I found this code snippet by searching for "Loading and playing background music in Pygame" in kandi. You can try any such use case!
