This app is an extension of THEO Basic Playback application. For help with getting started with THEOplayer or Android Studio feel free to check related guides:

Quick Start

    Please visit Get Started with THEOplayer to get required THEOplayer Android SDK.

  2. Copy theoplayer-android-[name]-[version]-minapi16-release.aar file from unzipped SDK into application libs folder and rename it to theoplayer.aar.

    Project is configured to load SDK with such name, for using other name please change implementation ':theoplayer@aar' dependency in app-level build.gradle file accordingly.
