MMS Library for Python

python-mms is a Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) library for Python. It provides a "mms" package for Python, consisting of classes that facilitate the creation, manipulation and encoding/decoding of MMS messages used in mobile phones. It is designed to be easy to use, yet flexible.

The package also includes some examples of how the library can be used.

MMS is a messaging service for the mobile environment standardized by the WAP Forum and 3GPP. To the end-user MMS is very similar to the text-based Short Message Service (SMS): it provides automatic immediate delivery for user-created content from device to device.

In addition to text, however, MMS messages can contain multimedia content such as still images, audio clips and video clips, which are binded together into a "mini presentation" (or slideshow) that controls for example, the order in which images are to appear on the screen, how long they will be displayed, when an audio clip should be played, etc. Furthermore, MMS messages do not have the 160-character limit of SMS messages.
