The CONNECT Player SDK 5 for Android enables you to embed the player within an existing or new native Java or Kotlin application. The SDK wraps and extends the media player API, providing a similar interface to the Android Video view.

SDK file contents
NAGRA supplies two variants of the SDK library, one with PRM support and one without.
If PRM is not required, the Android SDK 5 package typically contains the following files:
This contains code examples to demonstrate the features of the CONNECT Player; see the Android SDK5 Example Code Quick Start guide.
This contains the .aar file used for integration activities; see the Android SDK 5 Integration Guide: Creating the project.
This contains the .aar file that replaces the integration version when the application is ready to be deployed; see the Android SDK 5 Integration Guide: Building the production version.
If you have requested NAGRA PRM support, PRM versions of the above files will be supplied:
In addition, the PRM Operational Vault file opvault.json is also provided.
The player will not work without an encrypted licence that controls which player features and platforms are enabled. Two types of licence are available:
- Trial licence - a time-limited licence which works with any domain to evaluate the player.
- Commercial licence - supplied to you once you licence the product. It will only work with the domain name provided with the licence.
