flutter_ffplay #

A video player powered by ffmpeg.

Getting Started #

This project is a video player using ffmpeg. Currently, plugin supports Android and Windows. It will be appreciated for introducing it to another platforms.

A fully custom IO interface is provided in this plugin, users can provide their own data stream to ffplay.

Compile ffmpeg #

Before using this plugin, you need to compile ffmpeg first.

For Android, build script use ANDROID_NDK_HOME to find the android ndk.

For Windows, You need msys2 with msvc, or build with mingw64 toolchains in linux.

For msys2, you should setup vcvarsall before call cxx/build.sh, For example:

set MSYS2_PATH_TYPE=inherit
call "D:\Apps\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat" x64
"D:\Apps\msys64\usr\bin\bash.exe" --login cxx/build.sh

Basical usage #

First, You need to create an instance of IOHandler. An example of http protocol is provded in example/lib/iohandler.dart

final ioHandler = HttpIOHandler();

Then, create a Playback instance to hold playback information. An onFrame callback can be passed here to get the current position:

final playback = await Playback.create(onFrame: (pts) {
  setState(() {
    if (pts == null) {
      _isPlaying = false;
    } else {
      _isPlaying = true;
      _position = _isSeeking ? _position : pts;

Playback instance has textureId and aspectRatio parameters for users to create TextureView:

  aspectRatio: playback.aspectRatio,
  child: Texture(textureId: playback.textureId),

After that, it is time to create FFMpegContext:

final ctx = FFMpegContext(url, ioHandler, playback);

Then call getStream to get infomation of FFMpegContext:

final streams = await ctx.getStreams();

Finally, call play with a list of FFMpegStream to play.

await ctx.play(streams);

Intergrate into other platforms #

Interaction between dart and ffmpeg are achieved by ffi except the playback. To intergrate this plugin to other platforms, you should compile cxx/ffi.cpp with your platform code and add the library path to ffi.dart. Then, you also need to implement the playback by realize the flutter_ffplay method channel.
