An Android media player library powered by LibVLC.






Options can be provided for the initialization of LibVLC by using the VlcOptionsProvider singleton. This optional configuration should only be provided once during app initialization, or at some point before starting the MediaPlayerActivity. If no options are provided, then a default configuration is provided when initializing LibVLC. To make life easier, the VlcOptionsProvider.Builder class is available to help build a list of common options. If an option is not provided to the builder, then the default value for that option is used. For example, the following enables LibVLC verbose logging and sets the subtitle background opactiy:

                new VlcOptionsProvider.Builder(this)

The MediaPlayerActivity can be started by providing a required media URI and an optional subtitle URI. The subtitle URI must be a local file.

Intent intent = new Intent(this, MediaPlayerActivity.class);

intent.putExtra(MediaPlayerActivity.MediaUri, videoUri);
intent.putExtra(MediaPlayerActivity.SubtitleUri, subtitleUri);



Add this in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url "" }

and add the following in the dependent module:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.masterwok:simple-vlc-player:1.0.2'

unless you're a fan of large APKs, you'll probably want to add the following to the build.gradle of your app so an APK is generated per ABI:

android {
    splits {
        abi {
            enable true
            include 'armeabi-v7a', 'arm64-v8a', 'x86', 'x86_64'
            universalApk false

// Map for the version code that gives each ABI a value.
ext.abiCodes = [
        'armeabi-v7a': 1,
        'arm64-v8a'  : 2,
        'x86'        : 3,
        'x86_64'     : 4


android.applicationVariants.all { variant ->
    variant.outputs.each { output ->
        def baseAbiVersionCode = project.ext.abiCodes.get(output.getFilter(OutputFile.ABI))

        if (baseAbiVersionCode != null) {
            output.versionCodeOverride = baseAbiVersionCode * 10000000 + variant.versionCode
