Playing a sound file in Pygame means using the Pygame library to play audio files, such as MP3s, WAVs, or other audio formats. It involves loading the sound file into Pygame, setting up the audio channels, and then playing the sound through the program. 


Pygame is a set of Python modules designed for writing video games. It is written on top of the excellent SDL library. This allows you to create fully featured games and multimedia programs in the Python language. Pygame is highly portable and runs on nearly every platform and operating system. 


  • To play sounds using Pygame, you must first import the pygame.mixer library. 
  • Once you have imported the library, you can use the pygame.mixer.Sound() function to create a sound object, which you can then call the play() method to play the sound. 
  • You can also use the pygame.mixer.music.load() and pygame.mixer.music.play() functions to play music in the background of your program. 


Here is an example of playing sounds in a pygame. 


Code


In this solution, we play sounds in 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. Add the audios you want to play.
  6. Run the file to play sounds in pygame.


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 "Playing sounds in pygame" in kandi. You can try any such use case!

                      Environment Tested


                      I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

                      1. The solution is created in Python 3.9.6
                      2. The solution is tested on pygame version 2.3.0


                      Using this solution, we are able to create a new window with pygame. It is also used for creating graphical applications.
