The ExoPlayer library a customizable and extensible alternative to the built-in MediaPlayer APIs that provides a consistent API for streaming audio and video across all API 16+ devices.
ExoPlayer v2 includes significant architectural improvements and new features such as:
- A VideoView equivalent in SimpleExoPlayerView
- Gapless audio playback
- Playlist Support
- MediaSource composition to support side-loading subtitles, looping videos, or concatenating multiple sources
- Improved Audio extension APIs with pre-built extensions for ffmpeg, opus, and flac
- Seeking in live playback for DASH and SmoothStreaming sources
- A greatly simplified demo app
All in addition to ExoPlayer’s existing support for DASH and SmoothStreaming adaptive playback.
If you’re building a new media app, we recommend building on ExoPlayer v2. For those who are using ExoPlayer 1.X, you can include both 1.X and 2.X in your app (due to a different package name), allowing you to test and migrate your users with minimal impact.
