pub package

A Flutter plugin Android for playing back video on a Widget surface.

Installation #

First, add cache_video_player as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Android #

Ensure the following permission is present in your Android Manifest file, located in <project root>/android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

The Flutter project template adds it, so it may already be there.

Example #

import 'package:video_player/cache_video_player.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
void main() => runApp(VideoApp());
class VideoApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _VideoAppState createState() => _VideoAppState();
class _VideoAppState extends State<VideoApp> {
  VideoPlayerController _controller;
  void initState() {
    _controller =
      ..initialize().then((_) {
        // Ensure the first frame is shown after the video is initialized, even before the play button has been pressed.
        setState(() {});
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Video Demo',
      home: Scaffold(
        body: Center(
          child: _controller.value.isInitialized
              ? AspectRatio(
                  aspectRatio: _controller.value.aspectRatio,
                  child: VideoPlayer(_controller),
              : Container(),
        floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(
          onPressed: () {
            setState(() {
                  ? _controller.pause()
          child: Icon(
            _controller.value.isPlaying ? Icons.pause : Icons.play_arrow,
  void dispose() {

Usage #

The following section contains usage information that goes beyond what is included in the documentation in order to give a more elaborate overview of the API.

This is not complete as of now. You can contribute to this section by opening a pull request.

Playback speed #

You can set the playback speed on your _controller (instance of VideoPlayerController) by calling _controller.setPlaybackSpeed. setPlaybackSpeed takes a double speed value indicating the rate of playback for your video.
For example, when given a value of 2.0, your video will play at 2x the regular playback speed and so on.

Furthermore, see the example app for an example playback speed implementation.
