LibVLCSharp.Forms

NuGet Stats NuGet Stats

This package provides Xamarin.Forms support for LibVLCSharp.

This package also contains the views for the following platforms:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Mac

GTK and WPF Forms support are in separate packages due to multi-targeting limitations.

This package has multiple target frameworks, which means it will pick the right features for your project (you will only get the mac view if you are building a mac project).

BE CAREFUL: This project does not include LibVLC itself! You will need to install it separately! See the Installation documentation for more info.

MediaPlayerElement

This package includes a Xamarin.Forms MediaPlayerElement component. It currently supports iOS and Android only.

Note: In your iOS project, you must override the GetSupportedInterfaceOrientations method in AppDelegate.cs to enable the lock screen feature.

using Foundation;
using LibVLCSharp.Forms.Platforms.iOS;
using LibVLCSharp.Forms.Shared;
using ObjCRuntime;
using UIKit;
// ...

namespace MyAppNameSpace.iOS
{
    
    [Register("AppDelegate")]
    public partial class AppDelegate : global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.FormsApplicationDelegate
    {
       
        public override bool FinishedLaunching(UIApplication app, NSDictionary options)
        {
            LibVLCSharpFormsRenderer.Init();
            // ...
        }

        public override UIInterfaceOrientationMask GetSupportedInterfaceOrientations(UIApplication application, [Transient] UIWindow forWindow)
        {
            return OrientationChangeListener.Subscribe(this);
        }
    }
}

See the sample for more info.
