For a Windows only solution, I've used DirectShow via Mark Hammond's
win32com extension, and more recently via Thomas Heller's ctypes COM
framework. I've been working at a lower level than a complete player
(I've been building DirectShow filter graphs and using tkinter buttons
for "play", "pause" etc.) but I expect you could embed a full Windows
Media Player.
