VideoPlayerView

Custom Android view with video player, loader and placeholder image.

To stay up-to-date with news about the library

Usage

Here is an example flow:

Here you can view all examples visible on gif.

When you use loop then video will be looping forever:

<com.marcinmoskala.videoplayview.VideoPlayView
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="200dp"
    app:loop="true"
    app:videoUrl="https://github.com/MarcinMoskala/VideoPlayView/raw/master/videos/cat1.mp4" />

You can set custom loader for the time when movie is downloaded from URL:

<com.marcinmoskala.videoplayview.VideoPlayView
    android:id="@+id/bigVideoView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="200dp"
    app:videoUrl="https://github.com/MarcinMoskala/VideoPlayView/raw/master/videos/gdg.mp4" />

Static images can be set in xml, as loadingButton, but to display gif we need to use some library, like Glide:

VideoPlayView bigVideoView = findViewById(R.id.bigVideoView);
Glide.with(this)
        .load(R.drawable.loader)
        .into(bigVideoView.getLoadingView());

You can also show preview images. What is more, videos can be paused by user and preview image is shown then:

<com.marcinmoskala.videoplayview.VideoPlayView
    android:id="@+id/picassoVideoView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="200dp"
    app:loop="true"
    app:videoUrl="https://github.com/MarcinMoskala/VideoPlayView/raw/master/videos/cat1.mp4" />

Image for loading and for pause can be defined in xml as image or it can be set programmatically. Then we can use libraries, like Picasso, to load it:

VideoPlayView videoView = findViewById(R.id.picassoVideoView);
Picasso.with(this).load("http://i.imgur.com/DvpvklR.png").into(videoView.getImageView());

Customization

VideoPlayerView properties are:

  • image - reference to preview image.
  • playButton - reference to play button image.
  • loadingButton - reference to loader image.
  • videoUrl - video url.
  • playButton - max vale of progress (100 by default).
  • loop - video will be replayed automatically when it is finished (false by default).
  • autoplay - video will be played automatically when it is loaded (false by default).
