Getting started with Angular

A brief guide on how to build a THEOplayer in an Angular environment.

Note that this information is for a basic player in a local testing environment. Additional information may be needed for specific cases.

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Make sure you have the Angular CLI installed
npm install -g @angular/cli
  1. If needed, create a new workspace and initial application ng new appname
  2. In the root project, create a new component for the player (in this case appname)
cd appname
ng generate component theoplayer
  1. add the THEOplayer.js files to the root project
  2. In index.html add the /THEOplayer.js as a script tag and /ui.css as a stylesheet
  3. In theoplayer.component.html add
<div class="theoplayer-container video-js theoplayer-skin"></div>
  1. In theoplayer.component.ts add
import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import * as THEOplayer from '../../../THEOplayer.js';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-theoplayer',
  templateUrl: './theoplayer.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./theoplayer.component.css']
})
export class TheoplayerComponent implements OnInit {

  constructor() { }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.createPlayer();
  }

  createPlayer() {
    const element = document.querySelector('.theoplayer-container');

    const player = new THEOplayer.Player(element, {
      libraryLocation : ''
    });

    player.source = {
     sources : [{
         src : '//cdn.theoplayer.com/video/elephants-dream/playlist.m3u8',
         type : 'application/x-mpegurl' // sets type to MPEG-DASH
     }]
 };
  }
}

Then

import * as THEOplayer from '../../../THEOplayer.js;

will make sure to get everything needed from our sdk.

  1. In app.component.html add the following code to display the player in the app component.
<app-theoplayer></app-theoplayer>
  1. Profit.
