ExoPlayer

ExoPlayer is an application level media player for Android. It provides an alternative to Android’s MediaPlayer API for playing audio and video both locally and over the Internet. ExoPlayer supports features not currently supported by Android’s MediaPlayer API, including DASH and SmoothStreaming adaptive playbacks. Unlike the MediaPlayer API, ExoPlayer is easy to customize and extend, and can be updated through Play Store application updates.

Using ExoPlayer

Via jCenter

The easiest way to get started using ExoPlayer is by including the following in your project's build.gradle file:

gradle
compile 'com.google.android.exoplayer:exoplayer:rX.X.X'

where rX.X.X is the your preferred version. For the latest version, see the project's Releases. For more details, see the project on Bintray.

As source

ExoPlayer can also be built from source using Gradle. You can include it as a dependent project like so:

gradle
// settings.gradle
include ':app', ':..:ExoPlayer:library'

// app/build.gradle
dependencies {
    compile project(':..:ExoPlayer:library')
}

As a jar

If you want to use ExoPlayer as a jar, run:

sh
./gradlew jarRelease

and copy library.jar to the libs folder of your new project.
