The MediaManager plugin allow to play audio and video with Xamarin. Using this VideoManager, you can create a dedicated view to render a video in your fabulous application.
MediaManager has been created by Martijn van Dijk and its original project can be found on its github repository.
The nuget Fabulous.XamarinForms.VideoManager implements a view component for the type VideoView.
To use Fabulous.XamarinForms.VideoView, you must
  1. 1.
    Add a reference to Plugin.MediaManager and Plugin.MediaManager.Forms across your whole solution. This will add appropriate references to your platform-specific Android and iOS projects too.
  2. 2.
    Next add a reference to Fabulous.XamarinForms.VideoManager across your whole solution.
After these steps you can use VideoView in your view function. Here is a simple example of using VideoView to display a video player of Big Buck Bunny:
open Fabulous.XamarinForms
source = "https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/gtv-videos-bucket/sample/BigBuckBunny.mp4",
showControls = false,
heightRequest = 500.,
widthRequest = 200.)
