npm version ci License: MIT

Based on videojs-http-source-selector

VideoJS plugin that leverages videojs-contrib-quality-levels plugin to offer manual user-selectable level selection options for adaptive http streams.

Difference with http-source-selector plugin

  • Using a much more recent version of videojs-plugin generator with updated dependencies
  • All console log statement have been removed
  • Using correct videojs cog icon
  • Not failing when fullscreen toggle button is disabled or removed

Dependencies

Requires videojs-contrib-quality-levels and work only with adaptive http streams (HLS and Dash)

Installation

npm install --save videojs-contrib-quality-levels videojs-http-quality-selector

To include videojs-http-quality-selector on your website or web application, use any of the following methods.

<script> Tag

This is the simplest case. Get the script in whatever way you prefer and include the plugin after you include video.js, so that the videojs global is available.

<script src="//path/to/video.min.js"></script>
<script src="//path/to/videojs-contirb-quality-levels.min.js"></script>
<script src="//path/to/videojs-http-quality-selector.min.js"></script>
<script>
  var player = videojs('my-video');

  player.httpQualitySelector();
</script>

Browserify/CommonJS

When using with Browserify, install videojs-http-quality-selector via npm and require the plugin as you would any other module.

var videojs = require('video.js');

// The actual plugin function is exported by this module, but it is also
// attached to the `Player.prototype`; so, there is no need to assign it
// to a variable.
require('videojs-contirb-quality-levels')
require('videojs-http-quality-selector');

var player = videojs('my-video');

player.httpQualitySelector();

RequireJS/AMD

When using with RequireJS (or another AMD library), get the script in whatever way you prefer and require the plugin as you normally would:

require(['video.js','videojs-contirb-quality-levels', 'videojs-http-quality-selector'], function(videojs) {
  var player = videojs('my-video');

  player.httpQualitySelector();
});

Usage

Labels:

Level labels are generated from the height and bitrate metadata parsed from the stream QualityLevels sources. If height isn't available in the stream metadata, the labels will default to bitrate.

Default settings:

You can configure a bias to lock playback to the highest or lowest resolution by default by passing one of the below plugin options into your videojs initializer.

Low:

videojs(video, {httpQualitySelector: { default: 'low' }});

High:

videojs(video, {httpQualitySelector: { default: 'high' }});

Auto:

videojs(video, {httpQualitySelector: { default: 'auto' }});
