Skyline CLSP VideoJS Plugin

A videojs plugin that adds support for video served over the clsp protocol, which is a proprietary near-real-time video streaming protocol only available via Skyline's SFS solutions.

clsp protocol support is provided by https://github.com/skylineos/clsp-player.

Note that if you do not specifically need video.js, we recommend you use clsp-player as it is more performant and has better memory management.

Table of Contents

Supported Browsers

This plugin can only support browsers that are supported by the clsp-player. See https://github.com/skylineos/clsp-player for the list of supported browsers.

URL Structure

<video> tag

NOTE: with clsp-player, it is recommended that you have an "extra" container element wrapping your video element. When using video.js, a wrapper element will be created for you, so the extra one is not needed.

Note that for clsp streams, the src tag must have a type attribute with a value of video/mp4; codecs='avc1.42E01E'.

<div class="video-container">
  <video
    id="my-video"
    class="video-js vjs-default-skin"
    controls
  >
    <!-- CLSP Stream -->
    <source
      src="clsp://172.28.12.57:9001/FairfaxVideo0510"
      type="video/mp4; codecs='avc1.42E01E'"
    />
    <!-- HLS Stream -->
    <source
      src="http://172.28.12.57:1935/rtplive/FairfaxVideo0510/playlist.m3u8"
      type="application/x-mpegURL"
    />
  </video>
</div>

Using with src assets

NOTE: See demos/simple-src/ and demos/advanced-src/ for full examples.

NOTE: @babel/polyfill, video.js, videojs-errors MUST be sourced/included prior to the plugin.

JS

import '@babel/polyfill';
import videojs from 'video.js';
import videojsErrors from 'videojs-errors/dist/videojs-errors.es';
 
import clspUtils from '@skylineos/videojs-clsp/src/js/utils';
import clspPlugin from '@skylineos/videojs-clsp/src/js/plugin';
 
// If you are using a Skyline SFS that uses a default CLSP stream port that
// isn't `80` (e.g. SFS < v5.2.0), you may set the window-level default port
// for `clsp` streams:
clspUtils.setDefaultStreamPort('clsp', 9001);
 
clspPlugin().register();
 
const player = videojs('my-video', {
  autoplay: true,
  muted: true,
  preload: 'auto',
  controls: false,
  sources: [
    {
      src: 'clsp://172.28.12.57:9001/FairfaxVideo0510',
      type: "video/mp4; codecs='avc1.42E01E'",
    },

      type: 'application/x-mpegURL',
    },
  ],
});
 
if (clspUtils.supported()) {
  player.clsp();
}

Styles (SASS)

@import '/path/to/node_modules/@skylineos/videojs-clsp/src/styles/videojs-clsp.scss';

Babel

The babel config that is needed to properly build the src assets is located in the file babel.config.js at the root of the project. You will need to use this babel config as part of your build process, e.g. in your webpack configuration. You can either copy and paste the configuration into your project or import the babel config file.

Webpack

Note that you will need to apply the appropriate babel config options to the @skylineos/videojs-clsp src assets. See the Babel section above. Note that by default, webpack will ignore files in the node_modules directory, which means that the videojs-clsp src assets will not be parsed by babel. In order to get webpack to properly handle the files, you will need to add the following rule to your webpack config file:

{
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        // Add the `include` rule to the rule that will end up processing the `videojs-clsp` js, e.g.:
        // test: /\.js$/,
        // loader: 'babel-loader?cacheDirectory=true',
        // options: babelConfig,
        include: [
          path.resolve(
            __dirname,
            'node_modules',
            '@skylineos',
            'videojs-clsp',
            'src',
          ),
          path.resolve(
            __dirname,
            'node_modules',
            '@skylineos',
            'clsp-player',
            'src',
          ),
        ],
      },
    ],
  },
},

Dependencies

@babel/polyfill 7.8.7 is required.

video.js 7.7.5 is the recommended version. Version 6.x is not recommended due to it being less performant over time.

We recommend using videojs-errors. Version 4.3.2 is recommended, because as of version 4.2.0, it allows us to re-register successive errors to respond to successfive failures as necessary to support stream recovery.

Install

npm i @skylineos/videojs-clsp
