chewie2

The video player for Flutter with a heart of gold.

This is a Chewie fork than fix bugs still PR be analised.

The video_player plugin provides low-level access to video playback. Chewie uses the video_player under the hood and wraps it in a friendly Material or Cupertino UI!

Installation

In your pubspec.yaml file within your Flutter Project:

dependencies:
  chewie: <latest_version>
  video_player: <latest_version>

Use it

import 'package:chewie2/chewie2.dart';
final videoPlayerController = VideoPlayerController.network(
    'https://flutter.github.io/assets-for-api-docs/videos/butterfly.mp4');

final chewieController = ChewieController(
  videoPlayerController: videoPlayerController,
  aspectRatio: 3 / 2,
  autoPlay: true,
  looping: true,
);

final playerWidget = Chewie(
  controller: chewieController,
);

Please make sure to dispose both controller widgets after use. For example by overriding the dispose method of the a StatefulWidget:

@override
void dispose() {
  videoPlayerController.dispose();
  chewieController.dispose();
  super.dispose();
}

Example

Please run the app in the example/ folder to start playing!

Migrating from Chewie < 0.9.0

Instead of passing the VideoPlayerController and your options to the Chewie widget you now pass them to the ChewieController and pass that latter to the Chewie widget.

final playerWidget = Chewie(
  videoPlayerController,
  aspectRatio: 3 / 2,
  autoPlay: true,
  looping: true,
);

becomes

final chewieController = ChewieController(
  videoPlayerController: videoPlayerController,
  aspectRatio: 3 / 2,
  autoPlay: true,
  looping: true,
);

final playerWidget = Chewie(
  controller: chewieController,
);

The video player plugin used by chewie is not functional on iOS simulators. An iOS device must be used during development/testing. Please refer to this issue.
