TextureVideoView for Android
VideoView based on the official Android 7.1.1_r13 sources using a
TextureView instead of a
SurfaceView by sprylab technologies GmbH. It will work on Android 4.0+ (API level 15 and above).
The main advantages of this drop-in replacement compared to the original
VideoView are the following:
android.view.TextureViewinstead of a
android.view.SurfaceViewthus allowing proper view animations as described in the Property Animation API guide
- API addition: Call
setShouldRequestAudioFocus(true)to programmatically disable audio focus request before opening a video file - default behaviour is unchanged and complies with the current
VideoViewimplementation (thanks to @ezaquarii)
- clears the underlying
Surfaceon API level 16+ when calling
stopPlayback()(thanks to @hithere1985)
- fixes a sizing bug when auto-starting the video with view size != video size (thanks to @lhunath)
- fixes various memory leaks
- potential leak by releasing surface when destroyed
- potential activity leak when streaming videos over HTTP(S) (thanks to @koral)
- potential activity leak caused by AudioManager on Android pre-6.0 devices (thanks to @hzsweers)
Unfortunately, code that uses hidden APIs and thus is not publicly available had to be removed (e.g. subtitle support).
