VideoPlayer plugin for Phonegap

The video player allows you to display videos from your PhoneGap application.

This command fires an Intent to have your devices video player show the video.

Adding the Plugin to your project

Using this plugin requires Android PhoneGap.

  1. To install the plugin, move www/video to your project's www folder and include a reference to it in your html file after phonegap.js.

    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="phonegap.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="video.js"></script>

  2. Create a directory within your project called "src/com/phonegap/plugins/video" and move VideoPlayer.java into it.

  3. In your res/xml/plugins.xml file add the following line:

    <plugin name="VideoPlayer" value="com.phonegap.plugins.video.VideoPlayer"/>

Using the plugin

The plugin creates the object window.plugins.videoPlayer. To use, call the play() method:

  /**
    * Display an intent to play the video.
    *
    * @param url           The url to play
    */
  play(url)

Sample use:

window.plugins.videoPlayer.play("http://path.to.my/video.mp4");
window.plugins.videoPlayer.play("file:///path/to/my/video.mp4");
window.plugins.videoPlayer.play("file:///android_asset/www/path/to/my/video.mp4");
window.plugins.videoPlayer.play("https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en_sVVjWFKk");

Note: When playing video from the assets folder, the video is first copied to internal storage with MODE_WORLD_READABLE.
