# Titanium.Media.VideoPlayer

A native control for playing videos.

# Overview

The video player is a native view that can be used to play videos, either stored locally or streamed from a web server. The player can occupy the full screen, or can be used as a view that can be added to other views.

Use the Titanium.Media.createVideoPlayer method to create a video player.

All platforms support specifying the video content as a URL, either to a local file or a remote stream. This is done by setting the Titanium.Media.VideoPlayer.url property.

# iOS Implementation Notes

On iOS, video content can also be specified as a Titanium.Blob or Titanium.Filesystem.File object using the Titanium.Media.VideoPlayer.media property.

On iOS, a video player can dynamically switch back and forth between fullscreen mode and standard mode. If the native video controls are displayed, the user can use them to switch between standard and fullscreen mode.

# Android Implementation Notes

On Android, the video player cannot switch modes. To create a fullscreen player, you must specify fullscreen: true when you create the player. This fullscreen player creates its own Android Titanium.Android.Activity on top of the activity stack. Unlike a normal view, this fullscreen video player appears as soon as it is created. The user can close the player by pressing the Back button. See the code examples for a sample using the fullscreen player on Android.

There are several known issues with clipping on the Android video player.

  • When used with scalingMode set to VIDEO_SCALING_ASPECT_FILL or VIDEO_SCALING_NONE, the video content is not correctly clipped to the boundaries of the view. (TIMOB-7628 (opens new window))

  • When a border is set on the view, the video content does not take the border width into account, so the video content covers the border. (TIMOB-7628 (opens new window))

  • If a borderRadius is specified, the video content is not clipped to the rounded corners. (TIMOB-7629 (opens new window))

On Android, using a video player inside a scroll view is not recommended. When scrolling, black bars may appear over the video content.

This is because the video player is rendered on a special Android UI element called a SurfaceView. Android renders the SurfaceView behind the main window and punches a hole in the window to reveal the video. Because the content of the SurfaceView does not reside in the application window, the video content cannot be transformed (moved, scaled or rotated) with the window. This makes it difficult for the content to render properly inside a ScrollView.

# Examples

# Simple Video Player Example

The following code creates a simple video player to play a local video file.

var vidWin = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
    title: 'Video View Demo',
    backgroundColor: '#fff'
});

var videoPlayer = Titanium.Media.createVideoPlayer({
    top: 2,
    autoplay: true,
    backgroundColor: 'blue',
    height: 300,
    width: 300,
    mediaControlStyle: Titanium.Media.VIDEO_CONTROL_DEFAULT,
    scalingMode: Titanium.Media.VIDEO_SCALING_RESIZE_ASPECT
});

videoPlayer.url = 'movie.mp4';
vidWin.add(videoPlayer);
vidWin.open();

# Android Fullscreen Video Player

The Android fullscreen video player operates differently from other video players. The following example shows how to create, show, and close a fullscreen video player.

Note that in this example, a button is included to close the player, to demonstrate a method for dismissing the player programmatically. In practice, the user can always dismiss the player by using the Back button, so an on-screen control would not be required.

var win = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
    title: 'Test',
    backgroundColor: '#fff'
});

// Change to a valid URL
var contentURL = "http://www.example.com/stream.mp4";

var openButton = Ti.UI.createButton({
    title: "Start Video",
    top: "0dp",
    height: "40dp",
    left: "10dp",
    right: "10dp"
});

openButton.addEventListener('click', function() {
    var activeMovie = Titanium.Media.createVideoPlayer({
        url: contentURL,
        backgroundColor: 'blue',
        mediaControlStyle: Titanium.Media.VIDEO_CONTROL_DEFAULT,
        scalingMode: Titanium.Media.VIDEO_SCALING_RESIZE_ASPECT_FILL,
        fullscreen: true,
        autoplay: true
    });

    var closeButton = Ti.UI.createButton({
        title: "Exit Video",
        top: "0dp",
        height: "40dp",
        left: "10dp",
        right: "10dp"
    });

    closeButton.addEventListener('click', function() {
        activeMovie.hide();
        activeMovie.release();
        activeMovie = null;
    });

    activeMovie.add(closeButton);
});
win.add(openButton);
win.open();

# Properties

# accessibilityHidden

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
accessibilityHidden :Boolean

Whether the view should be "hidden" from (i.e., ignored by) the accessibility service.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityElementsHidden property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol.

On Android, setting accessibilityHidden calls the native View.setImportantForAccessibility method. The native method is only available in Android 4.1 (API level 16/Jelly Bean) and later; if this property is specified on earlier versions of Android, it is ignored.

Default: false


# accessibilityHint

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
accessibilityHint :String

Briefly describes what performing an action (such as a click) on the view will do.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityHint property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol. On Android, it is concatenated together with accessibilityLabel and accessibilityValue in the order: accessibilityLabel, accessibilityValue, accessibilityHint. The concatenated value is then passed as the argument to the native View.setContentDescription method.

Default: null


# accessibilityLabel

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
accessibilityLabel :String

A succint label identifying the view for the device's accessibility service.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityLabel property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol. On Android, it is concatenated together with accessibilityValue and accessibilityHint in the order: accessibilityLabel, accessibilityValue, accessibilityHint. The concatenated value is then passed as the argument to the native View.setContentDescription method. Defaults to Title or label of the control.


# accessibilityValue

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
accessibilityValue :String

A string describing the value (if any) of the view for the device's accessibility service.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityValue property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol. On Android, it is concatenated together with accessibilityLabel and accessibilityHint in the order: accessibilityLabel, accessibilityValue, accessibilityHint. The concatenated value is then passed as the argument to the native View.setContentDescription method. Defaults to State or value of the control.


# allowsAirPlay

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
allowsAirPlay :Boolean

Whether or not the current movie can be played on a remote device.


# anchorPoint

Availability
7.5.0
2.1.0
9.2.0
anchorPoint :Point

Coordinate of the view about which to pivot an animation.

Used on iOS only. For Android, use anchorPoint.

Anchor point is specified as a fraction of the view's size. For example, {0, 0} is at the view's top-left corner, {0.5, 0.5} at its center and {1, 1} at its bottom-right corner.

See the "Using an anchorPoint" example in Titanium.UI.Animation for a demonstration. The default is center of this view.


# animatedCenter READONLY

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
animatedCenter :Point

Current position of the view during an animation.


# apiName READONLY

Availability
3.2.0
3.2.0
9.2.0
apiName :String

The name of the API that this proxy corresponds to.

The value of this property is the fully qualified name of the API. For example, Titanium.UI.Button returns Ti.UI.Button.


# autoplay

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
autoplay :Boolean

Indicates if a movie should automatically start playback.

On iOS, playback starts automatically if autoplay is true and the movie is likely to finish uninterrupted. The OS determines whether the movie is likely to finish uninterrupted based on factors including the bit rate of the movie and network conditions (if the movie is being streamed from a remote source).

Default: true


# backgroundColor

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundColor :String | Titanium.UI.Color

Background color of the view, as a color name or hex triplet.

For information about color values, see the "Colors" section of Titanium.UI. Defaults to Transparent.


# backgroundDisabledColor

Availability
0.9
backgroundDisabledColor :String

Disabled background color of the view, as a color name or hex triplet.

For information about color values, see the "Colors" section of Titanium.UI. Defaults to the normal background color of this view.


# backgroundDisabledImage

Availability
0.9
backgroundDisabledImage :String

Disabled background image for the view, specified as a local file path or URL.

If backgroundDisabledImage is undefined, and the normal background imagebackgroundImage is set, the normal image is used when this view is disabled.


# backgroundFocusedColor

Availability
0.9
backgroundFocusedColor :String

Focused background color of the view, as a color name or hex triplet.

For information about color values, see the "Colors" section of Titanium.UI.

For normal views, the focused color is only used if focusable is true. Defaults to the normal background color of this view.


# backgroundFocusedImage

Availability
0.9
backgroundFocusedImage :String

Focused background image for the view, specified as a local file path or URL.

For normal views, the focused background is only used if focusable is true. If backgroundFocusedImage is undefined, and the normal background image backgroundImage is set, the normal image is used when this view is focused.


# backgroundGradient

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundGradient :Gradient

A background gradient for the view.

A gradient can be defined as either linear or radial. A linear gradient varies continuously along a line between the startPoint and endPoint.

A radial gradient is interpolated between two circles, defined by startPoint and startRadius and endPoint and endRadius respectively.

The start points, end points and radius values can be defined in device units, in the view's coordinates, or as percentages of the view's size. Thus, if a view is 60 x 60, the center point of the view can be specified as:

{ x: 30, y: 30 }

Or:

{ x: '50%', y: '50%' }

When specifying multiple colors, you can specify an offset value for each color, defining how far into the gradient it takes effect. For example, the following color array specifies a gradient that goes from red to blue back to red:

colors: [ { color: 'red', offset: 0.0}, { color: 'blue', offset: 0.25 }, { color: 'red', offset: 1.0 } ]

Android's linear gradients ignores backfillStart and backfillEnd, treating them as if they are true. Android's radial gradients ignore the endPoint property. Defaults to no gradient.


# backgroundImage

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundImage :String

Background image for the view, specified as a local file path or URL.

Default behavior when backgroundImage is unspecified depends on the type of view and the platform. For generic views, no image is used. For most controls (buttons, textfields, and so on), platform-specific default images are used.


# backgroundLeftCap

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundLeftCap :Number

Size of the left end cap.

See the section on backgroundLeftCap and backgroundTopCap behavior on iOS in Titanium.UI.View.

Default: 0


# backgroundRepeat

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundRepeat :Boolean

Determines whether to tile a background across a view.

Setting this to true makes the set backgroundImage repeat across the view as a series of tiles. The tiling begins in the upper-left corner, where the upper-left corner of the background image is rendered. The image is then tiled to fill the available space of the view.

Note that setting this to true may incur performance penalties for large views or background images, as the tiling must be redone whenever a view is resized.

On iOS, the following views do not currently support tiled backgrounds:

Default: false


# backgroundSelectedColor

Availability
0.9
backgroundSelectedColor :String | Titanium.UI.Color

Selected background color of the view, as a color name or hex triplet.

For information about color values, see the "Colors" section of Titanium.UI.

focusable must be true for normal views.

Defaults to background color of this view.


# backgroundSelectedImage

Availability
0.9
backgroundSelectedImage :String

Selected background image url for the view, specified as a local file path or URL.

For normal views, the selected background is only used if focusable is true.

If backgroundSelectedImage is undefined, and the normal background image backgroundImage is set the normal image is used when this view is selected.


# backgroundTopCap

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundTopCap :Number

Size of the top end cap.

See the section on backgroundLeftCap and backgroundTopCap behavior on iOS in Titanium.UI.View.

Default: 0


# backgroundView DEPRECATED

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
backgroundView :Titanium.UI.View

DEPRECATED SINCE 7.0.0

Use overlayView instead.

Sets the background view for customization which is always displayed behind movie content.

To create a background behind the movie content on iOS, you can specify a background view. On iOS, you can set the backgroundColor property directly on the video player, but not a background image or background gradient. For this kind of effect, specify a background view.

Note that the background view must be sized explicitly: percentage sizes do not work properly.

The following code sample creates a video player with a background image:

var videoPlayer = Ti.Media.createVideoPlayer({
    height: 300,
    width: 300,
    backgroundView: Ti.UI.createView({
        backgroundImage: 'videoPlayerBG.png
        width: 300,
        height: 300
    }),
    borderRadius: 20,
    borderWidth: 2,
    borderColor: 'blue',
});

Note that if scalingMode is set to VIDEO_SCALING_RESIZE or VIDEO_SCALING_RESIZE_ASPECT_FILL, the playing video will fill the entire video player area, obscuring any background view.


# borderColor

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
borderColor :String | Titanium.UI.Color

Border color of the view, as a color name or hex triplet.

For information about color values, see the "Colors" section of Titanium.UI.

Defaults to the normal background color of this view (Android), black (iOS).


# borderRadius

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
borderRadius :Number | String | Array<Number> | Array<String>

Radius for the rounded corners of the view's border.

Each corner is rounded using an arc of a circle. Values for each corner can be specified. For example, '20px 20px' will set both left and right corners to 20px. Specifying '20px 20px 20px 20px' will set top-left, top-right, bottom-right and bottom-left corners in that order.

If you have issues with dark artifacts on Android you can try to disable Hardware acceleration by setting a backgroundColor with a small amount of transparency: backgroundColor:"rgba(255,255,255,254)".

Default: 0


# borderWidth

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
borderWidth :Number

Border width of the view.

If borderColor is set without borderWidth, this value will be changed to 1 of the unit declared as 'ti.ui.defaultunit' in tiapp.xml descriptor.

Default: 0


# bottom

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
bottom :Number | String

View's bottom position, in platform-specific units.

This position is relative to the view's parent. Exact interpretation depends on the parent view's layout property. Can be either a float value or a dimension string (for example, '50%' or '10px').

This is an input property for specifying where the view should be positioned, and does not represent the view's calculated position.

Defaults to undefined.


# bubbleParent

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
bubbleParent :Boolean

Indicates if the proxy will bubble an event to its parent.

Some proxies (most commonly views) have a relationship to other proxies, often established by the add() method. For example, for a button added to a window, a click event on the button would bubble up to the window. Other common parents are table sections to their rows, table views to their sections, and scrollable views to their views. Set this property to false to disable the bubbling to the proxy's parent.

Default: true


# center

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
center :Point

View's center position, in the parent view's coordinates.

This is an input property for specifying where the view should be positioned, and does not represent the view's calculated position.

Defaults to undefined.


# children READONLY

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
children :Array<Titanium.UI.View>

Array of this view's child views.


# clipMode

Availability
3.3.0
9.2.0
clipMode :Number

View's clipping behavior.

Setting this to CLIP_MODE_ENABLED enforces all child views to be clipped to this views bounds. Setting this to CLIP_MODE_DISABLED allows child views to be drawn outside the bounds of this view. When set to CLIP_MODE_DEFAULT or when this property is not set, clipping behavior is inferred. See section on iOS Clipping Behavior in Titanium.UI.View.

Defaults to undefined. Behaves as if set to CLIP_MODE_DEFAULT.


# currentPlaybackTime

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
currentPlaybackTime :Number

Current playback time of the current movie in milliseconds.


# duration

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
duration :Number

The duration of the current movie in milliseconds, or 0.0 if not known.

The duration of the movie may not be available when playback is started. The durationavailable event is fired when the duration is known.

Default: 0


# elevation

Availability
5.0.0
elevation :Number

Base elevation of the view relative to its parent in pixels.

The elevation of a view determines the appearance of its shadow. Higher elevations produce larger and softer shadows.

Note: The elevation property only works on Titanium.UI.View objects. Many Android components have a default elevation that cannot be modified. For more information, see Google design guidelines: Elevation and shadows.


# endPlaybackTime

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
endPlaybackTime :Number

The end time of movie playback, in milliseconds.

On iOS, defaults to 0, which indicates natural end time of the movie. Changing the value to a value less than duration causes the movie to stop playing at the specified point. On iOS, this value is not applicable to streaming media, so 0 is returned if the current media is being streamed.

On Android, this is always the same as duration (the natural end time), and changing the value has no effect.

Default: 0


# filterTouchesWhenObscured

Availability
9.3.0
filterTouchesWhenObscured :Boolean

Discards touch related events if another app's system overlay covers the view.

This is a security feature to protect an app from "tapjacking", where a malicious app can use a system overlay to intercept touch events in your app or to trick the end-user to tap on UI in your app intended for the overlay.

Setting this property to true causes touch related events (including "click") to not be fired if a system overlay overlaps the view.

Default: false


# focusable

Availability
0.9
focusable :Boolean

Whether view should be focusable while navigating with the trackball.

Default: false


# fullscreen CREATION ONLYDEPRECATED

Availability
0.9
fullscreen :Boolean

DEPRECATED SINCE 7.0.0

This property has been removed for iOS in Titanium SDK 7.0.0 as of the official deprecation by Apple.

Determines if the movie is presented in the entire screen (obscuring all other application content).

Note that this must be set at different times on different platforms:

On Android, this property must be set at creation time. For example:

var player = Ti.Media.createVideoPlayer({fullscreen: true});

On Android, setting this value to true means that the video will have its own Android Activity rather than being embedded as a view.

This property was removed on iOS in SDK 7.0.0

Default: false


# height

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
height :Number | String

View height, in platform-specific units.

Defaults to: If undefined, defaults to either FILL or SIZE depending on the view. See "View Types and Default Layout Behavior" in Transitioning to the New UI Layout System.

Can be either a float value or a dimension string (for example, '50%' or '40dp'). Can also be one of the following special values:

  • SIZE. The view should size itself to fit its contents.
  • FILL. The view should size itself to fill its parent.
  • 'auto'. Represents the default sizing behavior for a given type of view. The use of 'auto' is deprecated, and should be replaced with the SIZE or FILL constants if it is necessary to set the view's behavior explicitly.

This is an input property for specifying the view's height dimension. To determine the view's size once rendered, use the rect or size properties.

This API can be assigned the following constants:

# hiddenBehavior

Availability
6.1.0
hiddenBehavior :Number

Sets the behavior when hiding an object to release or keep the free space

If setting hiddenBehavior to HIDDEN_BEHAVIOR_GONE it will automatically release the space the view occupied. For example: in a vertical layout the views below the object will move up when you hide an object with hiddenBehavior:Titanium.UI.HIDDEN_BEHAVIOR_GONE.

Defaults to Titanium.UI.HIDDEN_BEHAVIOR_INVISIBLE.

This API can be assigned the following constants:

# horizontalMotionEffect

Availability
7.3.0
9.2.0
horizontalMotionEffect :MinMaxOptions

Adds a horizontal parallax effect to the view

Note that the parallax effect only happens by tilting the device so results can not be seen on Simulator. To clear all motion effects, use the <Titanium.UI.clearMotionEffects> method.


# horizontalWrap

Availability
2.1.0
2.1.0
9.2.0
horizontalWrap :Boolean

Determines whether the layout has wrapping behavior.

For more information, see the discussion of horizontal layout mode in the description of the layout property.

Default: true


# id

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
id :String

View's identifier.

The id property of the Ti.UI.View represents the view's identifier. The identifier string does not have to be unique. You can use this property with getViewById method.


# initialPlaybackTime

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
initialPlaybackTime :Number

The start time of movie playback, in milliseconds.

Default: 0


# keepScreenOn

Availability
0.9
keepScreenOn :Boolean

Determines whether to keep the device screen on.

When true the screen will not power down. Note: enabling this feature will use more power, thereby adversely affecting run time when on battery.

Default: false


# layout

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
layout :String

Specifies how the view positions its children. One of: 'composite', 'vertical', or 'horizontal'.

There are three layout options:

  • composite (or absolute). Default layout. A child view is positioned based on its positioning properties or "pins" (top, bottom, left, right and center). If no positioning properties are specified, the child is centered.

    The child is always sized based on its width and height properties, if these are specified. If the child's height or width is not specified explicitly, it may be calculated implicitly from the positioning properties. For example, if both left and center.x are specified, they can be used to calculate the width of the child control.

    Because the size and position properties can conflict, there is a specific precedence order for the layout properties. For vertical positioning, the precedence order is: height, top, center.y, bottom.

    The following table summarizes the various combinations of properties that can be used for vertical positioning, in order from highest precedence to lowest. (For example, if height, center.y and bottom are all specified, the height and center.y values take precedence.)

    Scenario Behavior
    height & top specified Child positioned top unit from parent's top, using specified height; any center.y and bottom values are ignored.
    height & center.y specified Child positioned with center at center.y, using specified height; any bottom value is ignored.
    height & bottom specified Child positioned bottom units from parent's bottom, using specified height.
    top & center.y specified Child positioned with top edge top units from parent's top and center at center.y. Height is determined implicitly; any bottom value is ignored.
    top & bottom specified Child positioned with top edge top units from parent's top and bottom edge bottom units from parent's bottom. Height is determined implicitly.
    Only top specified Child positioned top units from parent's top, and uses the default height calculation for the view type.
    center.y and bottom specified Child positioned with center at center.y and bottom edge bottom units from parent's bottom. Height is determined implicitly.
    Only center.y specified Child positioned with center at center.y, and uses the default height calculation for the view type.
    Only bottom specified Child positioned with bottom edge bottom units from parent's bottom, and uses the default height calculation for the view type.
    height, top, center.y, and bottom unspecified Child entered vertically in the parent and uses the default height calculation for the child view type.

    Horizontal positioning works like vertical positioning, except that the precedence is width, left, center.x, right.

    For complete details on composite layout rules, see Transitioning to the New UI Layout System in the Titanium Mobile Guides.

  • vertical. Children are laid out vertically from top to bottom. The first child is laid out top units from its parent's bounding box. Each subsequent child is laid out below the previous child. The space between children is equal to the upper child's bottom value plus the lower child's top value.

    Each child is positioned horizontally as in the composite layout mode.

  • horizontal. Horizontal layouts have different behavior depending on whether wrapping is enabled. Wrapping is enabled by default (the horizontalWrap property is true).

    With wrapping behavior, the children are laid out horizontally from left to right, in rows. If a child requires more horizontal space than exists in the current row, it is wrapped to a new row. The height of each row is equal to the maximum height of the children in that row.

    Wrapping behavior is available on iOS and Android. When the horizontalWrap property is set to true, the first row is placed at the top of the parent view, and successive rows are placed below the first row. Each child is positioned vertically within its row somewhat like composite layout mode. In particular:

    • If neither top or bottom is specified, the child is centered in the row.
    • If either top or bottom is specified, the child is aligned to either the top or bottom of the row, with the specified amount of padding.
    • If both top and bottom is specified for a given child, the properties are both treated as padding.

    If the horizontalWrap property is false, the behavior is more equivalent to a vertical layout. Children are laid or horizontally from left to right in a single row. The left and right properties are used as padding between the children, and the top and bottom properties are used to position the children vertically.

    Defaults to Composite layout.


# left

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
left :Number | String

View's left position, in platform-specific units.

This position is relative to the view's parent. Exact interpretation depends on the parent view's layout property. Can be either a float value or a dimension string (for example, '50%' or '10px').

This is an input property for specifying where the view should be positioned, and does not represent the view's calculated position.

Defaults to undefined.


# lifecycleContainer

Availability
3.6.0

The Window or TabGroup whose Activity lifecycle should be triggered on the proxy.

If this property is set to a Window or TabGroup, then the corresponding Activity lifecycle event callbacks will also be called on the proxy. Proxies that require the activity lifecycle will need this property set to the appropriate containing Window or TabGroup.
