VisualOn Deprecation on Android Mobile SDK

As of April 1, 2016 the Ooyala Android SDKs have been shipping with Google ExoPlayer libraries instead of the VisualOn libraries. While there are steps that you will need to take, moving to ExoPlayer will provide a more consistent, higher quality HLS and MPEG-DASH playback experience for VOD and live streams on Android devices.

 

As of August 1, 2016, Ooyala will no longer support the HLS player integration with VisualOn or provide bug fixes or improvements specific to VisualOn libraries.

 

In order to upgrade, you will need to

You should upgrade to the latest Ooyala Android SDKs by August 1st to ensure you receive updates and fixes to your Android SDKs.

 

See Integration with Google ExoPlayer on Android for details on how to enable Google ExoPlayer in your Android application and for benefits and advantages of this move to use Google ExoPlayer. 
 
If you have any questions about the move to Google ExoPlayer, please contact your Ooyala point of contact or Ooyala Technical Support.

The Native Player SDK now provides built-in HLS support using the BrightcoveExoPlayer view, and we recommend customers transition applications to use this component in the coming months. We will continue to offer support for existing HLS Player integrations.
