Build

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

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.rubensousa:previewseekbar:1.0'
    
    // If you want to use this with ExoPlayer, use this one:
    compile 'com.github.rubensousa:previewseekbar-exoplayer:2.5.1'
}

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">

          <View
              android:id="@+id/videoView"
              android:layout_width="match_parent"
              android:layout_height="match_parent"
              android:layout_gravity="start"
              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">

        <com.google.android.exoplayer2.ui.SimpleExoPlayerView
            android:id="@+id/previewPlayerView"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            app:controller_layout_id="@layout/exo_simple_player_view"
            app:surface_type="texture_view"
            app:use_artwork="false"
            app:use_controller="false" />

    </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>

Use the following SimpleExoPlayerView for the preview:

<com.google.android.exoplayer2.ui.SimpleExoPlayerView
    android:id="@+id/previewPlayerView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    app:controller_layout_id="@layout/exo_simple_player_view"
    app:surface_type="texture_view"
    app:use_artwork="false"
    app:use_controller="false" />

We specify another controller layout because the default one includes a SeekBar with the same id as ours.

Create a player with a custom TrackSelection and LoadControl

 private SimpleExoPlayer createPreviewPlayer() {
    TrackSelection.Factory videoTrackSelectionFactory = new WorstVideoTrackSelection.Factory();
    TrackSelector trackSelector = new DefaultTrackSelector(videoTrackSelectionFactory);
    LoadControl loadControl = new PreviewLoadControl();
    SimpleExoPlayer player = ExoPlayerFactory.newSimpleInstance(
            new DefaultRenderersFactory(context), trackSelector, loadControl);
    player.setPlayWhenReady(false);
    player.setVolume(0f);
    player.prepare(mediaSourceBuilder.getMediaSource(true));
    return player;
} 

PreviewLoadControl and WorstVideoTrackSelection are already included in previewseekbar-exoplayer.
Check the next section for some improvements notes.

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

@Override
public void loadPreview(long currentPosition, long max) {
    previewPlayer.seekTo(currentPosition);
    previewPlayer.setPlayWhenReady(false);
}
