I am developing a video streaming application (like YouTube) and using
expo-video-player(which is a wrapper library for
expo-av) to stream videos. However, during the video playback, the video player starts displaying a loader for buffering which causes the play/pause button to be hidden until the loader goes away. This can be alright except that this loader never goes away. Since
expo-avdoesn’t support adaptive streaming (or does it? correct me if I’m wrong), the video keeps on loading and I’m not able to use any control on the player.
I tried to disable activity loader but it only stop displaying loader and controls are still not visible. I want a simple player with proper pause/play feature. Would appreciate any leads on alternatives. Thanks!
