ExoMedia is a media playback library with similar APIs to the Android MediaPlayer and VideoView that uses the ExoPlayer as a backing when possible, otherwise the default Android MediaPlayer and VideoView are used.

The ExoPlayer is only supported on devices that pass the compatibility Test Suite and that are JellyBean (API 16) or greater. The ExoPlayer provides additional support for streaming (HLS, DASH, etc.) and full HD (1080p +)

Website And Documentation

The ExoMedia website can be found here
The ExoMedia documentation website can be found on the website linked above or here


The latest AAR (Android Archive) files can be downloaded from JCenter
Or included in your gradle dependencies

repositories {

dependencies { implementation '' }


The ExoMedia VideoView can be added in your layout files like any other Android view.

< android:id="@+id/video_view" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" app:usedefaultcontrols="true"></>

While in your Activity or Fragment you treat it like a standard Android VideoView

private VideoView videoView;

private void setupVideoView() { // Make sure to use the correct VideoView import videoView = (VideoView)findViewById(; videoView.setOnPreparedListener(this);

//For now we just picked an arbitrary item to play


@Override public void onPrepared() { //Starts the video playback as soon as it is ready videoView.start(); }
