Amazon Media Player Component

 IV: Add Components for More Functionality

The Amazon media player is based on the open source ExoPlayer, which was developed by Google for Android. The Amazon media player builds on ExoPlayer to provide a robust and stable media player that is compatible on Fire TV devices.

The functionality in Amazon media player closely mirrors that in ExoPlayer. For example, Amazon media player supports SmoothStreaming, DASH, HLS, Dolby, captions, and more. For details about what Amazon media player supports, look at the documentation for ExoPlayer. The minimum Android SDK required is API level 19 (KitKat).

The aim with Amazon media player is to develop higher level player APIs that abstract away the complex ExoPlayer APIs for core playback scenarios. Amazon media player provides you with a mostly fixed set of APIs that you can use even when ExoPlayer changes its APIs with version upgrades.

Configure Amazon media player Component
