  • User60112 posted

    Hello guys , I have managed to make two small project (Xamarin.Forms.Android) + (Xamarin.Android ). Where i used VLC library as a video player . So I would like to make it better and more useful for people (like in the end it would be a nuget package) . So is anyone interested to contribute in this ? I do not think I can do it by my own only. I was thinking to have it on Github but i need experts here :)

    Are you planning to make it for Forms? Here is someone that has done stuff with VLC already. You might find this useful: https://github.com/martijn00/VlcXamarin

    Hello @RogerSchmidlin , actually the one I made in my github , it is based on the what you have sent me (or rather based on the same file he has built with buínding project) , the problem with what you have sent is that the sample does not show a video and there is no description about how to do it . So I solved that and I have made the project in the link https://github.com/tombby11/Xamarin.Vlc

    And I have included a sample that works on Xamarin.Forms. Would you like to help ?

    I am not a crack, but I can try :) I will have a look at your sample code.

    Great @RogerSchmidlin ! having the spirit can be enough for now. I need help with producing a new vlclib.dll from the latest android project here . That can be done using Binding .aar library . However when i do so the produced dll does not contain all the classes! I have asked @Martijn00 about it since he succeeded in building the library but i guess he is busy or something :smile:
    sorry for keep mentioning your name but just to ensure that you get a notfication . so check it out , and if you think it got your interest , maybe you can send me your contact to make it easier :smiley:

    I faced this problem before and fixed by compiling the java (May be Android Studio) and C# binding project with same version of Android framework.

    Hi,

    I might be a bit late in this forum but i wanted to understand one thing:

    I am looking for a VLC based cross platform solution which allows me to consume live stream. It seems I will have to use individual dependencies for Android, ios and UWP?

    What if i have to extend exiting solution https://github.com/tombby11/Xamarin.Vlc to support other platforms as well?

    hello @pSharma first of all those are two things :P
    Well i have created made the vlc working on android because i needed that to be working also with Xamarin.Forms (Android) . When it worked i decided to share it with people so they can extend it and play around with it. So please feel free to take a fork (branch) and extend it with other platforms. Are you good with Github? if yes maybe you can help me with the project , i do not know how to make it shine and i know that many people ,if it worked, would be very happy having VLC.Forms for Android , iOS and windows. And it would be even nicer if there was a nuget package out of it :)

    Sure,

    I would love to be part of the project, Let me know how can i help you?

    e.g. To make it compatible with UWP i could not find a suitable NuGet Package.

  • User60112 posted

    Great if you would like to help with UWP , I think you can have the libvlc directly from there source which is I found it for you here I think you can extract the necessary library files which can be used for custom renderer for UWP :smile: I good idea though is to make it a nuget package :) Do you use Slack ? maybe we can keep better contact if you have it

    Hello @HamdiHakan , I do not know about that to be honest , but i think you have to design it yourself , and make it bindable to the player , I know that you can control the player to go to a certain point of the media , but I think you have to design a seekplayer by yourself

    Thanks for information @ahmadmadi . How can I adjust the video width and height settings proportionately?

    Hi;

    I added seekbar for VLC Player. I can create a sample project if it wants to.

    Hi @HamdiHakan That would be great! In fact I have an idea to convert VLCLib from Java to C# like we translate the whole code instead of using binding libraries. My idea is to have the code so we can control it . Do you think that is something can be interesting for you ?
