Kaltura Player JS Platform - Cloud TV and OVP Media Players Based on the PlayKit JS Player
The Kaltura Player utilizes a highly modular approach for creating a powerful media player. Each functionality of the player is isolated into separate packages, which are designed to deliver a specific set of abilities. This approach enables extensibility, simplicity and easy maintenance.
The Kaltura Player integrates:
- PlayKit JS - The core library.
- PlayKit JS UI - The UI framework.
- PlayKit JS DASH and PlayKit JS HLS for HLS & MPEG-DASH media source extensions capabilities.
- PlayKit JS IMA for ads and monetization.
- PlayKit JS Providers as the backend media providers.
- PlayKit JS Youbora, PlayKit JS KAVA, and PlayKit JS OTT Analytics as the different analytics plugins.
The Kaltura Player exposes two different players: the Kaltura OVP Player and Kaltura Cloud TV Player. Each player integrates its related packages, as you can see in the following table:
|PlayKit JS||PlayKit JS Providers||PlayKit JS UI||PlayKit JS DASH||PlayKit JS HLS||PlayKit JS Youbora||PlayKit JS OTT Analytics||PlayKit JS KAVA|
|Cloud TV Player||V||OTT||V||V||V||V||V||V (*)|
* Needs to be configured.
The Kaltura Player is written in ECMAScript6, statically analysed using Flow and transpiled in ECMAScript5 using Babel.
First, clone and run yarn to install dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/kaltura/kaltura-player-js.git cd kaltura-player-js yarn install
Then, build the player
// OVP player yarn run build:ovp // Cloud TV player yarn run build:ott
Next, let’s look at how to get started by creating a player using the Player API set.
