Re: mediactrl.Load always gives False

Thanks for the VLC suggestion, I hadn't thought of that. Another possibility is FluidSynth. As you say, both also require sourcing and configuring a suitable SoundFront file. I expect I'll go down one of those routes, though the loss of native MIDI support in wxWidgets on Macos would be a shame.

Re: mediactrl.Load always gives False

For what it's worth I also have this problem on 10.15 Catalina, but not on 10.14 Mojava. I've yet to check what happens with the C example media player, but judyboon's experience does suggest that the problem is probably Python-related.
