Project description

React Native video player to play vod and lives from api.video

Getting started


npm install @api.video/react-native-player


yarn add @api.video/react-native-player

Note: if you are on iOS, you will need this extra step: Install the native dependencies with Cocoapods

cd ios && pod install


For the moment, this player component is based on the api.video's javascript player (displayed in a react-native-webview), and therefore it suffers from the same limitation as every players displayed in browsers.

We plan to base the player component on natives video players in a further release to avoid this kind of limitation. Stay tuned!
