In this lesson we'll install react-native-video with NPM. We'll use the
react-native link command to setup all necessary native code.
In this lesson we'll show the different methods that react-native-video allows to play video including remote video files and local files imported as asset files by React Native.
In this lesson we'll show to use the
onError callback from
react-native-video. We'll show how to put a separate view to cover the video and render an error icon from
react-native-vector-icons. Finally we'll add custom error messages based upon the error code returned.
In this lesson we'll show how to use icons from
react-native-vector-icons. With absolute positioning we'll center the icon over the video. Then we'll use the
Animated.loop call to rotate the icon continuously in a 360 degree loop. Finally we'll the
stopAnimation call to pause the animation when we are no longer buffering.
In this lesson we'll show how to use React Native Video to cover the entire background. We'll use the
repeat property, and also the helper
StyleSheet.absoluteFill property so we do not need to replicate styles. We'll then show how to place a login form on top of the looping video.
In this lesson we'll setup a
react-native-video player that is paused when it is not visible but when scrolled into view starts playing the video. We'll also show how to add a small ending threshold so once the video is only partially out of view it will pause.
In this lesson we'll use
react-native-vector-icons to add play/paused buttons, a seek bar, and the duration of the video. We'll use the
onEnd callbacks to track the video progress. We'll use the
react-native-progress to create an animated progress bar for us. Finally with
TouchableWithoutFeedback we will add a tap to seek interaction to jump to specific times in the video.
In this lesson we'll create controls that animate into view when the video is interacted with. The controls will animate in when the video starts to play, or when the video is tapped. When a 1500ms timeout is reached the controls will automatically animate hidden.
