Class or Modules?

I'm writing a game to learn more about python, and I've done a little
bit of programming in puthon so far, that were very small projects
(single source file) shell scripts, little gui's, and the like. Now that
I'm working on something larger, I'm not sure how to go about it.

My question is: Which should I use for multiple source files in a large
project, classes or modules?

Here is an example of my sturcture

main
input
video

input and video need to get/set data from the others that needs to be
persistant (like if I set video.x in main or video, input needs to see
it the same way) and run functions from the others.

So the way I tried to achieve this uses classes (which I'm fairly sure
is BAD, it just doesn't seem right) was this:

import input,video,eve nts,gui,gamepla y,player
class main:
def __init(self)__:
input=input.Inp ut(self)
video=video.Vid eo(self)
(more like that)

and then in other files:

class input:
def __init__(self,e ngine):
self.engine=eng ine

class Video:
def __init__(self,e ngine):
self.engine=eng ine

(more like that)

Is there a better way to do this?

I come from a background of Java and C# where it is common practise to have one class per file in the file/project structure. As I have understood it, it is more common practice to have many classes in a Python module/file. What is the motivation behind it, would it be a bad idea to have a guideline in your project that promotes a one class...

Hi, i'm developping asp.net applications and therefore i use VB.net. I have some questions about best practises. According what i read about class and module and if i understand it right, a module does the same as a class but cannot herite or be herited. 1)Is that right? 2) So i guess this module does exactly the same as the class?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
