Dailymotion Player SDK Android

Download Build Status

This SDK aims at easily embedding Dailymotion videos on your Android application using WebView. It supports api level 21+. The SDK is bundled with a sample application

Features

  • Dead simple to use. No need to specify a layout container for the VideoView
  • Supports Android 3.0.x and superior

How to use

Add the SDK to your project

You can either import the SDK using your IDE or integrate PlayerWebView.java in your project.

You can import the sdk with :

implementation 'com.dailymotion.dailymotion-sdk-android:sdk:0.1.31'
android:hardwareAccelerated="true"

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

Use in your Activity or Fragment

First, add the PlayerWebView in your layout in place of the regular WebView.

        <com.dailymotion.android.player.sdk.PlayerWebView
               android:id="@+id/dm_player_web_view"
               android:layout_width="match_parent"
               android:layout_height="215dp">
       </com.dailymotion.android.player.sdk.PlayerWebView>

Then in your Activity code just launch your content. Get your PlayerWebView then call load("id").

    private PlayerWebView mVideoView;
    
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.screen_sample);

        mVideoView = (PlayerWebView) findViewById(R.id.dm_player_web_view);
        mVideoView.load("x26hv6c");
    }

You can load the video with your parameters.

    private PlayerWebView mVideoView;
    
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.screen_sample);

        mVideoView = (PlayerWebView) findViewById(R.id.dm_player_web_view);
        Map<String, String> playerParams = new HashMap<>();
        playerParams.put("key", "value");
        mVideoView.load("x26hv6c", playerParams);
    }

Handle screen rotation

For the screen rotation to be handled correctly, you need to add

        android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize"

to any activity using PlayerWebView, in your AndroidManifest.xml

Lifecycle

You have to call onPause and onResume when these events occur in your lifecycle :

    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();

        if(Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB){
            mVideoView.onPause();
        }
    }
        

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();

        if(Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB){
            mVideoView.onResume();
        }
    }

Play Services

The SDK uses Google Play Services to get the Advertising Id If your app also uses play services, you may want to override the play-services-ads version to avoid conflicting with other play services artifacts.

dependencies {
    implementation "com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:[your_play_services_version]"
}

Publish your own sdk on Bintray

Update your local.properties files with this lines and replace and <api.key> values`

bintray.user=<user>
bintray.apikey=<api.key>

In your terminal call gradlew install then gradlew bintrayUpload

You can’t perform that action at this time.
