This guide enables you to demonstrate CONNECT Player features and view the Kotlin version of the example code.

Prerequisites

Make sure you have the latest Android Studio installed, including:

  • Android SDK - install the latest version from Android Studio when prompted.

  • Gradle - use the latest version as recommended by Android Studio.

  • JDK - use the version provided with Android Studio.

Download the Android SDK pack, which supplies all the files needed to launch the player and start streaming content.

  • opy-sdk-android-5.16.x.x-example-kotlin.zip
    This package demonstrates how to implement the same features in the Kotlin language.
  • opy-sdk-android-5.16.x.x-sdk-integration.aar
    The SDK binary file used for integration purposes.
  • opy-sdk-android-5.16.x.x-sdk-prm-integration.aar
    The PRM version of the SDK binary file used for integration purposes. 
    You will also need the PRM Operational Vault file opvault.json.
  • A device running Android 5.x (Lollipop) onwards with debugging enabled; the player cannot run on an Android Studio simulator.

Procedure

  1. Save the SDK pack to your desktop and unzip it. The package contains a zipped set of example code; extract the contents of the example-code-kotlin.zip file to your desktop.
  2. Start Android Studio, select Open an existing Android Studio project and select the required project in the top-level directory of the extracted package; see the example projects below.
  3. Copy the opy-sdk-android-5.16.x.x-sdk-integration.aar or opy-sdk-android-5.16.x.x-sdk-prm-integration.aar (for the PRM features) file to the common/libs/ directory.

    Additional libraries may be required for some example projects; check the relevant README files for details.

  4. Connect an Android device to your development machine via USB, and build and run the application.
