... with package name com.google.android.exoplayer2, will soon be discontinued, so to continue receiving updates, you will need to migrate to Media3 ExoPlayer.

Hello, The bookstore is appreciated. I was using the previous wrapper and I really like it a lot.
The only thing I see (and it is in almost all libraries is that we cannot instantiate the exoplayer2 object) this is so that if in the future we want to extend your library through javaobject or reflection , it will be easier for us.
Could you add the request?

Hello, thanks for sharing this library.
I have some dash links that are encrypted with drm, I have the keyid and the key, but I don't know how I could get into this library.
I know that exoplayer works with these links because I know some apks that work well.
Here it says how to do it with exoplayer: https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/issues/3201

Can someone guide me how I could do it with b4a?
Thank you

Sorry to be pushy but I use your library and I would like you to modify it to be able to access the Exoplayer object. that you must have it with @Hide set, that's why I can't access it

what kind of solution you are referring to ?

Thanks for the reply

I am using google translator, I hope it is understood well.

Dash files (*.mpd) may have drm ( digital rights management ) protection. There are several types: widevine (Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video...), or clearkey (dazn, movistar+...).

With very few lines of code it can be implemented in exoplayer with android studio, I suppose it wouldn't be very difficult to do it in b4a, because I already told you that there is very little code to put on it. That would make our apks very attractive...

I leave you the link of an apk that works with clearkey so you can see how easy it is (at least it seems so to me, but my knowledge of creating a b4a library is very limited)


Thanks for your time.

hello @Addo

I have been following your work for a long time, I wanted to know if the previous library (Exoplayer 2.18.5 Streams Player), will cease to exist and I must migrate everything to this new library.

It is to know if I should migrate everything, since this library is better and has better functions, (It does not cost me anything to migrate)

thanks for your time.

This library will be the future library for Exoplayer. I put in consideration to add ffmpeg to it in next release. I am just not available as before due to some circumstances in real life. How ever i will be back soon to release even more libraries. Although will take reading meta data into consideration.

Hello, thank you very much for answering.
Considering that in the future it will be the exoplayer library, I will update to this version.
I hope to see you here soon and that everything goes well.
Thank you very much for your time and work. good day

or

Is there a way to bypass the certificate validation? or accept it

Hello, @Addo

Could you share some example of the use of

GetAudioTracksLanguages
GetVideoTrackSubtitles
preferredAudioLanguage
preferredtextLanguage
EnableSubtitles

I try with the example of the previous version that you had of exoplayer2, but it does not read all the audios, I try it with vlc and 2 audio tracks come out and in your example it only shows me 1.
