The Player module contains all available API of the Bitmovin Android Player SDK.
Player is the main entry point that plays back and handles one or more sources while a
Source represents audio and video content that can be loaded into a Player. More information on how to manage multiple sources can be found on the PlaylistApi.
Sources emit events during their lifecycle that can be subscribed to in order to enable custom workflows.
The Player module also comes with a
PlayerView that provides the Bitmovin Player Web UI and default UI handling to an attached Player instance.
The OfflineContentManager offers the ability to download and store sources locally to enable playback with a Player without an active network connection.
