<uk.co.jakelee.vidsta.VidstaPlayer
        android:id="@+id/player"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />
3. Configure video source, and other options:
        VidstaPlayer player = (VidstaPlayer) findViewById(R.id.player);
        player.setVideoSource("http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4");
        player.setAutoLoop(true);
        player.setAutoPlay(true);
