Open Videos using JavaScript

HTML5 Videos can be loaded into WebViewer with use of the @pdftron/webviewer-video package.

Install

npm install @pdftron/webviewer-video

Below is a sample setup of the video package with webviewer.

initializeVideoViewer is called to give WebViewer the ability to handle the loading of video files. Afterwards, a video can be loaded with loadVideo. Lastly settings to customize the behavior of the controls can be passed in when calling initializeVideoViewer.

import WebViewer from '@pdftron/webviewer';
import { initializeVideoViewer } from '@pdftron/webviewer-video';

WebViewer({
    path: '/webviewer/lib',
    selectAnnotationOnCreation: true,
  },
  viewer.current,
).then(async instance => {
  // Extends WebViewer to allow loading HTML5 videos (.mp4, ogg, webm).
  const {
      loadVideo,
  } = await initializeVideoViewer(
      instance,
      {
        license: '---- Insert commercial license key here after purchase ----',
        `---- Other settings ----`,
      }
  );
  // Load a video at a specific url. Can be a local or public link
  // If local it needs to be relative to lib/ui/index.html.
  // Or at the root. (eg '/video.mp4')
  const videoUrl = 'https://pdftron.s3.amazonaws.com/downloads/pl/video/video.mp4';
  loadVideo(videoUrl);
});
