    vue-playr

    v0.0.1 - Changelog

    A vue component for the plyr video & audio player.

    This is useful for when you want a nice video player in your Vue app.

    It uses plyr by sampotts v3 for the players.

    Supported player types: HTML5 video, HTML5 audio, YouTube (div & progressive enhancement), and Vimeo (div & progressive enhancement).

    Installation

    yarn add vue-playr plyr # or npm i vue-playr plyr 

    Module

    // In your main vue file - the one where you create the initial vue instance.
    import Vue from 'vue'
    import VuePlayr from 'vue-playr'
     
    // The second argument is optional and sets the default config values for every player.
    Vue.use(VuePlayr, {
      plyr: {
        fullscreen: { enabled: false }
      },
      events: ['ended']
    })

    SSR (more below)

    For SSR you can import the SSR optimized module, found at ./dist/vue-playr.ssr.js. There is a more in depth description on how to use it with nuxt below.

    Browser

    In the browser you can include it as you would any other package: with unpkg.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://unpkg.com/vue"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://unpkg.com/plyr"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://unpkg.com/vue-playr"></script>
     
    <!-- You will also need to install the component during app creation -->
    <script>
      window.Vue.createApp(VuePalyr).mount('#app')
    </script> 
     

    Usage

    Once installed, it can be used in a template as simply as:

    <!-- video element -->
    <vue-playr>
      <video poster="poster.png" src="video.mp4">
        <source src="video-720p.mp4" type="video/mp4" size="720">
        <source src="video-1080p.mp4" type="video/mp4" size="1080">
        <track kind="captions" label="English" srclang="en" src="captions-en.vtt" default>
      </video>
    </vue-playr>
     
    <!-- audio element -->
    <vue-playr>
      <audio>
        <source src="audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3"/>
        <source src="audio.ogg" type="audio/ogg"/>
      </audio>
    </vue-playr>
     
    <!-- youtube iframe with progressive enhancement (extra queries after the url to optimize the embed) -->
    <vue-playr>
      <div class="plyr__video-embed">
        <iframe
          src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bTqVqk7FSmY?iv_load_policy=3&modestbranding=1&playsinline=1&showinfo=0&rel=0&enablejsapi=1"
          allowfullscreen allowtransparency allow="autoplay">
        </iframe>
      </div>
    </vue-playr>
     
    <!-- youtube div element -->
    <vue-playr>
      <div data-plyr-provider="youtube" data-plyr-embed-id="bTqVqk7FSmY"></div>
    </vue-playr>
     
    <!-- vimeo iframe with progressive enhancement (extra queries after the url to optimize the embed) -->
    <vue-playr>
        <div class="plyr__video-embed">
          <iframe
            src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/76979871?loop=false&byline=false&portrait=false&title=false&speed=true&transparent=0&gesture=media"
            allowfullscreen allowtransparency allow="autoplay">
          </iframe>
        </div>
      </vue-playr>
     
    <!-- vimeo div element -->
    <vue-playr>
      <div data-plyr-provider="vimeo" data-plyr-embed-id="76979871"></div>
    </vue-playr>

    Player Instance

    To access the player instance, you can use the refs attribute.

    <template>
      <vue-playr ref="plyr" />
    </template>
     
    <script>
    export default {
      name: 'Component',
      computed: {
        player () {
          return this.$refs.plyr.player
        }
      },
      mounted () {
        console.log(this.player)
      }
    }
    </script> 

    Events

    If you want to capture events from the plyr instance, there are a few options:

    The preferred method is accessing the player instance through the ref attribute and using that object for events, as you would with a vanilla plyr instance.

    Valid events are here.

    <template>
      <vue-playr ref="plyr" />
    </template>
    <script>
    export default {
      name: 'Component',
      computed: {
        player () {
          return this.$refs.plyr.player
        }
      },
      mounted () {
        this.player.on('event', () => console.log('event fired'))
      }
    </script>

    The other way is to just pass an array of the events you want emitted.

    <vue-playr :events="['timeupdate','exitfullscreen']" @timeupdate="videoTimeUpdated" @exitfullscreen="exitedFullScreen">

    Options

    For custom options you can pass an options prop which is an object that will be passed to the new Plyr() creation. Available options here. I added an additional option (hideYouTubeDOMError) that hides the error that is always logged when destroying a YouTube player. It defaults to true, and you can disable it and see the error by setting it to false.

    SSR

    Nuxt

    This should support SSR out of the box. For nuxt, create a file called vue-playr.js in your plugins folder containing only these three statements:

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import VuePlayr from 'vue-playr/dist/vue-playr.ssr.js'
     
    // The second argument is optional and sets the default config values for every player.
    Vue.use(VuePlayr, {
      plyr: {
        fullscreen: { enabled: false }
      },
      events: ['ended']
    })

    Then, in your nuxt.config.js file add '~/plugins/vue-playr' to the plugins array. The vue-playr element should be globally registered now.

    You will also want to add plyr/dist/plyr.css to your css array in the same file.

    The nuxt.config.js file should at minimum include this:

    export default {
      plugins: [
        '~/plugins/vue-playr'
      ],
      css: [
        'plyr/dist/plyr.css'
      ]
    }
