Android Question Can I use Exoplayer to play a video in a homescreen widget?

Before I spent 30+ minutes putting together a test app, I am just wondering if it is even possible to insert exoplayer in a homescreen widget so that it will play a video (with sound) while the homescreen is showing on the device?

I forgot to mention that this app is for my personal use, so permissions are not a problem.

Can you elaborate on the method you think could work - I am not fully grasping what you suggested?

Are you saying that I can add the exoplayer view to a widget, but that without the draw-over-app permission (and a transparent panel) I would not be able to interact with the widget (ie play/stop video)?
