The following procedures describe how to create a new CONNECT Player application in Android and add an
OTVVideoView to play a specified clear video stream.
The following development tools are required; the number in square brackets denotes the earliest supported version of the software verified by NAGRA.
- Java SDK - Download the JDK [Java v8] from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.
- Android Studio - Download the latest version of Android Studio from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html.
- Gradle - use the newest version as recommended by Android Studio. This is set in the
dependenciessection of the
buildScriptblock; see step 2 of Creating the project.
- A device running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.
The app requires a physical Android device with debugging enabled as per Android guidelines (http://developer.android.com/tools/device.html). It will not work on an emulator.
For the current dependencies and minimum build configuration for integrating your app with the CONNECT Player SDK, see CONNECT Player SDK 5 for Android Documentation.
Product release files
NAGRA supplies the following files as part of your release:
This file is used for integration activities.
This file replaces the integration version when the complete application is ready to be deployed.
If your project includes Playback of PRM encrypted content (Software PRM), use the PRM versions of the above files:
You will also need the PRM Operational Vault file opvault.json.
We recommend you perform integration of CONNECT Player SDK 5 in the following stages:
- In conjunction with the Android SDK 5 Example Code Quick Start guide, use the code examples to explore and test the features of the CONNECT Player.
- Using this guide, create a basic player; for details, see:
- Develop your code to add encrypted playback and other features to the player.
- When development is complete, replace the integration file with the production version. Carry out final testing and submit to the Google Play Store.
