Downloading the Mobile SDK

Use the following steps to download the most recent version of the SDK.

  1. From a browser, navigate to the Ooyala Downloads page.
  2. Click to download the latest Android SDK archive file.
  3. Extract the archive and save the folder to a convenient directory.
  4. Log into the Ooyala Customer Portal and submit a support ticket requesting access to the VisualOn libraries.

    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
  5. Integrate VisualOn with the Android SDK on your native application using the instructions included with the VisualOn libraries.
    Note: For more information about integrating VisualOn with the Android SDK, see Getting Started: Enabling Upgrade for HLS Playback.
