MediaPlayer

The MediaPlayer capability protocol serves to define the methods required for displaying media on the device.

Methods

- (CapabilityPriorityLevel) mediaPlayerPriority
- (void) displayImageWithMediaInfo:(MediaInfo *)mediaInfo success:(MediaPlayerSuccessBlock)success failure:(FailureBlock)failure
Parameters:
  • mediaInfo
  • success: success –

    Optional MediaPlayerSuccessBlock to be called on success

  • failure: failure –

    Optional FailureBlock to be called on failure

- (void) playMediaWithMediaInfo:(MediaInfo *)mediaInfo shouldLoop:(BOOL)shouldLoop success:(MediaPlayerSuccessBlock)success failure:(FailureBlock)failure
Parameters:
  • mediaInfo
  • shouldLoop: shouldLoop
  • success: success –

    Optional MediaPlayerSuccessBlock to be called on success

  • failure: failure –

- (void) closeMedia:(LaunchSession *)launchSession success:(SuccessBlock)success failure:(FailureBlock)failure

Close a running media session.

LaunchSession will be required to close the media and mediaControl will be required to control the media.
