Just Player


Just Player is a very simple wrapper for Cocoa AVPlayer. It wrapps complicated usage of AVPlayer. For those who want to use AVPlayer in a super easy way, and tweek in her/his later need.

Steps of Usage

Assume we declare a ‘player’ property of type JustPlayer* in our view controller like this:

    #import "JustPlayer.h"
    #import "JustPlayerLayerView.h"

    @interface ViewController ()
    @property (nonatomic, strong) JustPlayer *player;


    self.player = [[JustPlayer alloc] init];

ready to play block

When it is ready to play, this block will be called.

Basically we have to call [play:] inside, you can
tweek your own.

    __weak ViewController *weak = self;

    self.player.blkPlayerItemReady = ^(AVPlayerItemStatus

    status) {

        if (AVPlayerItemStatusReadyToPlay == status) {

            [weak.player play];

        else {

            NSLog(@"player item status is %d", status);


load range block (optional)

On playing, it will fetch next segmant of video asset, and
notifies us.

        self.player.blkPlayerItemLoadTimeRange = ^(float start, float duration) {

        NSLog(@"get range (%.1f, %.1f)", start, duration);


setup URL to play

        [self.player prepareForURL: url];

setup display

Use storyboard to add a UIView UI object, set it as JustPlayerLayerView class, and make it as an outlet of
your view controller, say :

    #import "JustPlayerLayerView.h"
    @interface ViewController : UIViewController
    @property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet JustPlayerLayerView *playerLayer;

Set the outlet view as the ‘display’ of JustPlayer:

    [self.playerLayer setPlayer: self.player.player];
