Thumbnails images on video progress bar. Example of the thumbnail:
The plugin works with sprites. Example of sprite generated from the video:
npm install --save videojs-thumbnails
The npm installation is preferred, but Bower works, too.
bower install --save videojs-thumbnails
To include videojs-thumbnails on your website or web application, use any of the following methods.
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.
Setup and initialisation below is an example of thumbnail shown in the screenshot above.
Depending on the ratio of your video you will generate specific size of the sprite so some adjustments to variable to best position and display thumbnails.
The sprite created in the example is 100th px ( depending on the video length ) wide and 58px high with the clip width of 100px ( see example above ).
Thumbnail styles need to be also included for thumbnails to work correctly.
To adjust style simply overide style in css file. For example .vjs-thumbnail-img class padding, background and height.
When using with Browserify, install videojs-thumbnails via npm and
require the plugin as you would any other module.
var videojs = ;// 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.;var player = ;player;
When using with RequireJS (or another AMD library), get the script in whatever way you prefer and
require the plugin as you normally would:
