Usage

This package is the endorsed implementation of video_player for the web platform since version 0.10.5, so it gets automatically added to your application by depending on video_player: ^0.10.5.

No further modifications to your pubspec.yaml should be required in a recent enough version of Flutter (>=1.12.13+hotfix.4):

...
dependencies:
  ...
  video_player: ^0.10.5
  ...

Once you have the correct video_player dependency in your pubspec, you should be able to use package:video_player as normal, even from your web code.

dart:io

The Web platform does not suppport dart:io, so attempts to create a VideoPlayerController.file will throw an UnimplementedError.
