Build

Add the following to your app's build.gradle:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.rubensousa:previewseekbar:1.2'
    implementation 'com.github.rubensousa:previewseekbar-exoplayer:2.6.0'
}

How to use

Add the following XML:

<com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.PreviewSeekBarLayout
      android:id="@+id/previewSeekBarLayout"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:orientation="vertical">

      <FrameLayout
          android:id="@+id/previewFrameLayout"
          android:layout_width="@dimen/video_preview_width"
          android:layout_height="@dimen/video_preview_height">

          <ImageView
              android:id="@+id/imageView"
              android:layout_width="match_parent"
              android:layout_height="match_parent"
              android:background="@color/colorPrimary" />

      </FrameLayout>

      <com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.PreviewSeekBar
          android:id="@+id/previewSeekBar"
          android:layout_width="match_parent"
          android:layout_height="wrap_content"
          android:layout_below="@id/previewFrameLayout"
          android:layout_marginTop="25dp"
          android:max="800" />
          
</com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.PreviewSeekBarLayout>

You need to add at least one PreviewSeekBar and a FrameLayout inside PreviewSeekBarLayout, else an exception will be thrown.

PreviewSeekBarLayout extends from RelativeLayout so you can add other views or layouts there.

Create a PreviewLoader and pass it to PreviewSeekBarLayout:

// Create a class that implements this interface and implement your own preview logic there
public interface PreviewLoader {
    void loadPreview(long currentPosition, long max);
}

PreviewLoader loader = new ExoPlayerLoader();
previewSeekBarLayout.setup(loader);

How to use with ExoPlayer

Add a custom controller to your SimpleExoPlayerView

<com.google.android.exoplayer2.ui.SimpleExoPlayerView
    android:id="@+id/player_view"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    app:controller_layout_id="@layout/exoplayer_controls"/>

Here's the sample's exoplayer_controls: https://github.com/rubensousa/PreviewSeekBar/blob/master/sample/src/main/res/layout/exoplayer_controls.xml

The PreviewSeekBarLayout inside exoplayer_controls should be similar to this:

<com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.exoplayer.PreviewTimeBarLayout
    android:id="@+id/previewTimeBarLayout"
    android:layout_width="0dp"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_weight="1">

    <FrameLayout
        android:id="@+id/previewFrameLayout"
        android:layout_width="@dimen/video_preview_width"
        android:layout_height="@dimen/video_preview_height"
        android:background="@drawable/video_frame"
        android:padding="@dimen/video_frame_width">

        <ImageView
            android:id="@+id/imageView"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

    </FrameLayout>

    <com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.exoplayer.PreviewTimeBar
        android:id="@+id/exo_progress"
        style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleHorizontal"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_below="@id/previewFrameLayout"
        android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
        android:max="800" />

</com.github.rubensousa.previewseekbar.PreviewSeekBarLayout>

Create your own ExoPlayerLoader that seeks the video to the current position

In this sample, Glide is used with a custom transformation to crop the thumbnails from a thumbnail sprite.

GlideThumbnailTransformation

@Override
public void loadPreview(long currentPosition, long max) {
    player.setPlayWhenReady(false);
    GlideApp.with(imageView)
            .load(thumbnailsUrl)
            .override(GlideThumbnailTransformation.IMAGE_WIDTH,
                    GlideThumbnailTransformation.IMAGE_HEIGHT)
            .transform(new GlideThumbnailTransformation(currentPosition))
            .into(imageView);
}
