Quick Start

Player is available for installation using the Cocoa dependency manager CocoaPods. Alternatively, you can simply copy the Player.swift file into your Xcode project.

# CocoaPods
pod "Player", "~> 0.13.2"

# Carthage
github "piemonte/Player" ~> 0.13.2

Usage

The sample project provides an example of how to integrate Player, otherwise you can follow these steps.

Allocate and add the Player controller to your view hierarchy.

 self.player = Player()
 self.player.playerDelegate = self
 self.player.playbackDelegate = self
 self.player.view.frame = self.view.bounds

 self.addChild(self.player)
 self.view.addSubview(self.player.view)
 self.player.didMove(toParent: self)

Provide the file path to the resource you would like to play locally or stream. Ensure you're including the file extension.

let videoUrl: URL = // file or http url
self.player.url = videoUrl

play/pause

 self.player.playFromBeginning()

Adjust the fill mode for the video, if needed.

 self.player.fillMode = .resizeAspectFit

Display video playback progress, if needed.

extension ViewController: PlayerPlaybackDelegate {

    public func playerPlaybackWillStartFromBeginning(_ player: Player) {
    }

    public func playerPlaybackDidEnd(_ player: Player) {
    }

    public func playerCurrentTimeDidChange(_ player: Player) {
        let fraction = Double(player.currentTime) / Double(player.maximumDuration)
        self._playbackViewController?.setProgress(progress: CGFloat(fraction), animated: true)
    }

    public func playerPlaybackWillLoop(_ player: Player) {
        self. _playbackViewController?.reset()
    }

}
