Installation

You can install FWPlayer SDK in several ways:

  1. CocoaPods
  2. Carthage
  3. Manual Installation

CocoaPods

CocoaPods is an easy way to install FWPlayer.

  1. Add following pod to your Podfile:
platform :ios, '10.0'

target 'Your App' do
    pod 'FWPlayer'
end
  1. Then, run the following command:
$ pod install
  1. Switch over to Build Phases and add a New Run Script Phase by clicking the + in the top left of the editor. Add the following command to solve the issue of App Store submission.
bash "${BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR}/${FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH}/FWPlayerCore.framework/strip-frameworks.sh"

Carthage

Since FWPlayer SDK is distributed as a binary, you need to use custom binary rule in your Cartfile.

  1. Add following to your Cartfile:
binary "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FoksWang/FWPlayer/master/Carthage/FWPlayer.json" ~> 1.0.13
  1. Fetch framework by running:
$ carthage update --platform iOS

Manual Installation

  1. Add the FWPlayer framework to Embedded Binaries for your target:
FWPlayerCore.framework
  1. Make sure you link with the following Linked Frameworks and Libraries:
FWPlayerCore.framework

Usage

Normal Style

Objective-C

FWAVPlayerManager *playerManager = [[FWAVPlayerManager alloc] init];
self.player = [FWPlayerController playerWithPlayerManager:playerManager containerView:self.containerView];
self.player.controlView = self.controlView;

Swift

private var player: FWPlayerController?

private lazy var containerView: UIImageView = {
    let imageView = UIImageView()
    imageView.setImageWithURLString(coverImageUrl, placeholder: UIImage(named: "placeholder"))
    return imageView
}()

private lazy var controlView: FWPlayerControlView =  {
    let view = FWPlayerControlView()
    view.fastViewAnimated = true
    view.autoHiddenTimeInterval = 5.0
    view.autoFadeTimeInterval = 0.5
    view.prepareShowLoading = true
    view.prepareShowControlView = true
    return view
}()

let playerManager = FWAVPlayerManager()
playerManager.isEnableMediaCache = false

// Setup player
self.player = FWPlayerController(playerManager: playerManager, containerView: self.containerView)
self.player?.controlView = self.controlView

// Setup continue playing in the background
self.player?.pauseWhenAppResignActive = true

self.player?.orientationWillChange = { [weak self] (player, isFullScreen) in
    self?.setNeedsStatusBarAppearanceUpdate()
}

// Finished playing
self.player?.playerDidToEnd = { [weak self] (asset) in
    guard let strongSelf = self else {
        return
    }
    strongSelf.player?.currentPlayerManager.replay!()
    strongSelf.player?.playTheNext()
    if strongSelf.player?.isLastAssetURL == false {
        strongSelf.controlView.showTitle("Video Title", coverURLString: strongSelf.kVideoCover, fullScreenMode: .landscape)
    } else {
        strongSelf.player?.stop()
    }
}

self.player?.assetURLs = self.assetURLs

To play the next or previous video, just set:

Objective-C

self.player.assetURLs = self.assetURLs;

Swift

self.player!.assetURLs = self.assetURLs
  • To play the next video, please call method playTheNext
  • To play the previous video, please call method playThePrevious
  • To play the video from the asset list, please call method playTheIndex:index

For example, play the next video:

Objective-C

if (!self.player.isLastAssetURL) {
    [self.player playTheNext];
    [self.controlView showTitle:@"Video title" coverURLString:kVideoCover fullScreenMode:FWFullScreenModeAutomatic];
} else {
    NSLog(@"No more videos");
}

Swift

if self.player!.isLastAssetURL == false {
    self.player!.playTheNext()
    self.controlView.showTitle("Video title", coverURLString: kVideoCover, fullScreenMode: .automatic)
} else {
    print("No more videos")
}

Quick demo for Normal Style

Step 1: In AppDelegate, make sure you have var window: UIWindow?

Swift

    var window: UIWindow?
    static var shared: AppDelegate {
        UIApplication.shared.delegate as! AppDelegate
    }

Step 2: In SceneDelegate, make sure you have var window: UIWindow?

Swift

    var window: UIWindow?
    
    func scene(_ scene: UIScene, willConnectTo session: UISceneSession, options connectionOptions: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) {
        // Use this method to optionally configure and attach the UIWindow `window` to the provided UIWindowScene `scene`.
        // If using a storyboard, the `window` property will automatically be initialized and attached to the scene.
        // This delegate does not imply the connecting scene or session are new (see `application:configurationForConnectingSceneSession` instead).

        guard let windowScene = (scene as? UIWindowScene) else { return }
        window = UIWindow(windowScene: windowScene)
        window?.rootViewController = ViewController()
        window?.makeKeyAndVisible()
        AppDelegate.shared.window = window
    }

Step 3: Use quick demo code ViewController

Swift

import UIKit
import FWPlayerCore

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    
    private let kVideoCover = "https://github.com/FoksWang/FWPlayer/blob/master/Example/FWPlayer/Images.xcassets/Common/cover_image_placeholder.imageset/cover_image_placeholder.jpg?raw=true"
    private var player: FWPlayerController?
    private lazy var containerView: UIImageView = {
        let imageView = UIImageView()
        let color = UIColor(red: 220.0/255.0, green: 220.0/255.0, blue: 220.0/255.0, alpha: 1)
        let placeholderImage = FWUtilities.image(with: color, size: CGSize(width: 1, height: 1))
        imageView.setImageWithURLString(kVideoCover, placeholder: placeholderImage)
        return imageView
    }()
    
    private lazy var controlView: FWPlayerControlView = {
        let view = FWPlayerControlView()
        view.fastViewAnimated = true
        view.autoHiddenTimeInterval = 5.0
        view.autoFadeTimeInterval = 0.5
        view.prepareShowLoading = true
        view.prepareShowControlView = true
        return view
    }()
    
    private lazy var playButton: UIButton = {
        var button = UIButton(type: .custom)
        button.setImage(FWUtilities.imageNamed("FWPlayer_all_play"), for: .normal)
        button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(playButtonClick), for: .touchUpInside)
        return button
    }()
    
    @objc private func playButtonClick() {
        print("playButtonClick")
        self.player!.playTheIndex(assetIndex)
        self.controlView.showTitle("Video title 1", coverURLString: kVideoCover, fullScreenMode: .automatic)
    }
    
    private lazy var nextButton: UIButton = {
        var button = UIButton(type: .system)
        button.setTitle("Next", for: .normal)
        button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(nextButtonClick), for: .touchUpInside)
        return button
    }()
    
    @objc private func nextButtonClick() {
        print("nextButtonClick")
        assetIndex += 1
        if assetIndex > assetURLs.count - 1 {
            assetIndex = assetURLs.count - 1
        }
        self.player!.playTheIndex(assetIndex)
        self.controlView.showTitle("Video title 2", coverURLString: kVideoCover, fullScreenMode: .automatic)
    }
    
    private var assetIndex = 0
    private lazy var assetURLs: Array<URL> = {
        var assetList = [

List Style

Objective-C

FWAVPlayerManager *playerManager = [[FWAVPlayerManager alloc] init];
self.player = [FWPlayerController playerWithScrollView:self.tableView playerManager:playerManager containerViewTag:tag];
self.player.controlView = self.controlView;

Swift

let playerManager = FWAVPlayerManager()
self.player = FWPlayerController(scrollView: tableView, playerManager: playerManager, containerViewTag: tag)
self.player!.controlView = self.controlView
  • Your custom playerManager must conform to FWPlayerMediaPlayback protocol.
  • Your custom controlView must conform to FWPlayerMediaControl protocol.

Must implement in the ViewController if video rotating

Objective-C

- (BOOL)shouldAutorotate {
    return player.shouldAutorotate;
}

Swift

override var shouldAutorotate: Bool {
  return self.player?.shouldAutorotate ?? false
}

If use playback while downloading (Media Cache)

The function playback while downloading (Media Cache) does NOT support m3u8, it is commonly used for MP4.

  1. Setup isEnableMediaCache

Objective-C

playerManager.isEnableMediaCache = YES;

Swift

playerManager.isEnableMediaCache = true
  1. Setup NSAppTransportSecurity in your Info.plist
<key>NSAppTransportSecurity</key>
<dict>
    <key>NSAllowsArbitraryLoads</key>
    <true/>
</dict>
