Cuepoints

Adds cuepoint support to Flowplayer Native.

Manual installation

To use the plugin in standalone Javascript setups, load the plugin next to the core player.

<script src="//cdn.flowplayer.com/releases/native/3/stable/flowplayer.min.js"></script>
<script src="//cdn.flowplayer.com/releases/native/3/stable/plugins/cuepoints.min.js"></script>

Player and plugins exist in different release versions. Please see the release channel documentation.

OVP managed async players

To enable the plugin in the async cloud player, declare it in the "plugins": [] config object with cuepoints .

Configuration (mandatory)

You can configure the plugin with top level configuration option cuepoints. cuepoints accepts an array of Json-objects that must contain at least startTime and endTime properties which represents the start and end time, in seconds, for each cuepoint.

Configuration options

Inside the cuepoints: [{}, {}] array objects:

    • property
    • description
    • startTime
    • numeric value in seconds (or fractions) to add cuepoint
    • endTime
    • numeric value in seconds (or fractions) to remove cuepoint
    • msg
    • the message to be triggered by the cupeoint

API

Properties:

    • property
    • description
    • cuepoints
    • An array with currently used cuepoints
    • events
    • Events that can be listened to or fired
    • CUEPOINTS
    • When new cuepoints added
    • CUEPOINT_START
    • When start time for a cuepoint is passed
    • CUEPOINT_END

Add/Remove cuepoints

Adding and removing cuepoints while playing can done, by emitting the CUEPOINTS event, and modifying the player's opts.cuepoints property using ordinary array methods.

player.emit(
    flowplayer.events.CUEPOINTS,
    { cuepoints: player.opts.cuepoints.concat({startTime: 1, endTime: 3}) }
);

Sample code

//JavaScript
var player = flowplayer('#container', {
    src: "https://edge.flowplayer.org/bauhaus.m3u8"
    , cuepoints: [
        {startTime: 0.5, endTime:3, msg: "Cuepoint 1"}
        , {startTime: 5, endTime:7, msg: "Cuepoint 2"}
        , {startTime: 10, endTime:15, msg: "Cuepoint 3"}
        , {startTime: 20, endTime:24, msg: "Cuepoint 4"}
    ]
})

player.on(flowplayer.events.CUEPOINT_START, function(e) {
    console.log('Cuepoint started', e.data.cuepoint.msg);
})
player.on(flowplayer.events.CUEPOINT_END, function(e) {
    console.log('Cuepoint ended');
})
