AKVideoImageView was created because I wasn't satisfied with the standard AVPlayer when I was implementing a video background for one of my apps. The main issue is that AVPlayer doesn't let the phone go to sleep mode. Additionally, you can't insensibly start the video from the first frame when the app enters the background. This class solves these problems and has a less noticeable lag when switching from the last to the first frame of the video.
Before starting using this class, you need to properly compress the video.
Here is an example of libx264 compression options on OS X system using FFmpeg utility:
ffmpeg -i input.mov -vcodec libx264 -level 3.1 -pix_fmt yuv420p -threads 1 -preset placebo -crf 19 -tune film -x264opts colorprim=bt709:transfer=bt709:colormatrix=bt709:fullrange=off output.mp4
Just drag the
UIImageView to your
UIView and set its class to the
AKVideoImageView. In the Attributes Inspector set the
Video File Name to the name of your
.mp4 video file without extension. See an example project for more info if needed.
#import "AKVideoImageView.h" NSURL *videoURL = [[NSBundle mainBundle] URLForResource:@"videoName" withExtension:@"mp4"]; AKVideoImageView *videoBG = [[AKVideoImageView alloc] initWithFrame:self.view.bounds videoURL:videoURL]; [self.view addSubview:videoBG]; [self.view sendSubviewToBack:videoBG];
import AKVideoImageView let url = Bundle.main.url(forResource: "video_1", withExtension: "mp4")! let videoView = AKVideoImageView(frame: view.bounds, videoURL: url)! view.addSubview(videoView)
NSURL *videoURL = [[NSBundle mainBundle] URLForResource:@"anotherVideoName" withExtension:@"mp4"]; self.videoBG.videoURL = videoURL;
Just add AKVideoImageView.h and AKVideoImageView.m files to your project.
Add the following line to your Podfile.
pod "AKVideoImageView", "~> 1.1"
