About

The SRG Media Player library for iOS provides a simple way to add a universal audio / video player to any application. It provides:

  • A default player with the same look & feel as the standard iOS player, and automatic support for picture in picture for compatible devices
  • A set of overlays which can be combined to create the user interface you need
  • Support for segments. Those are simply sections of a video, defined by non-overlapping time ranges, which can be blocked or hidden
  • Support for DVR streams
  • Ability to use several instances of the player at the same time

Compatibility

The library is suitable for applications running on iOS 8 and above.

Installation

The library can be added to a project using CocoaPods version 1.0 or above by adding the SRGMediaPlayer dependency to its Podfile:

pod 'SRGMediaPlayer', '<version>'

For more information about CocoaPods and the Podfile, please refer to the official documentation.

Usage

Usage from Objective-C source files

Import the global header file using

#import <SRGMediaPlayer/SRGMediaPlayer.h>

You can similarly import individual files, e.g.

#import <SRGMediaPlayer/RTSMediaPlayerViewController.h>

It you use CocoaPods with the use_frameworks! directive, it is easier to import the SRGMediaPlayer module itself where needed:

@import SRGMediaPlayer;

Usage from Swift source files

If you installed SRGMediaPlayer with CocoaPods but without the use_frameworks! directive, import the global header from a bridging header:

#import <SRGMediaPlayer/SRGMediaPlayer.h>

If you use CocoaPods with the use_frameworks! directive, the SRGMediaPlayer module can be imported where needed:

import SRGMediaPlayer
