MediaPlayer Overview

The MediaPlayer plays video files from static sources or streams online YouTube videos and provides dynamic content in a user-friendly interface.

It also delivers a styled video UI functionality by using the HTML5 <video> element and ships with a built-in toolbar, timeline slider, title bar, HD source support, and responsive layout.

To initialize the MediaPlayer, either:

Initializing with Webpack

  1. Install Kendo UI and add a theme.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-ui
    npm install --save @progress/kendo-theme-default
  2. Install the Kendo UI MediaPlayer package for Vue.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-mediaplayer-vue-wrapper
  3. Import the Kendo UI packages to the App component. If you use the Kendo UI components more than once in your application, add all Kendo UI-related files to the main.js file. If you use the Kendo UI components once in your application, add the Kendo UI-related files the component where they will be referred.

    import '@progress/kendo-ui' // This will import the entire Kendo UI library
    // As an alternative, you could import only the scripts that are used by a specific widget:
    // import '@progress/kendo-ui/js/kendo.mediaplayer' // Imports only the MediaPlayer script and its dependencies

    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css'

    import { MediaPlayer, MediaPlayerInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-mediaplayer-vue-wrapper'


    new Vue({
        el: '#app',
        components: {
