        pympris is a Python library used
to control media players using MPRIS2 interfaces.

Usage
=====

::

# mp.root implements org.mpris.MediaPlayer2 interface
# mp.player implements org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player
# mp.track_list implements org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.TrackList
# mp.playlists implements org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Playlists

# print player Identity
print mp.root.Identity
