Theoplayer v7.5.0 with Mediamelon SDK


  • MediaMelon SmartSight SDK smartstreaming_release.aar

Step 1: Set up the build environment

The SDK files are added to the build environment and the required network permissions are enabled.

  1. Copy smartstreaming-release.aar provided with the release package to the theoplayer project, Example app/libs/smartstreaming-release.aar

  2. Add the following library to app/build.gradle :-

dependencies {
   //<!-- <MMSmartStreaming 1a> -->
    api files ('smartstreaming-release.aar')
  //<!-- </MMSmartStreaming 1a> -->

Add network permissions to


<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>

<!-- <MMSmartStreaming 1b> -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />
<!-- </MMSmartStreaming 1b> -->

Step 2: Register SDK

The player application must register the SDK and provide player information once when the application launches. Please note that values provided in this integration step persist across video sessions. This is typically done when the player itself is initialized.

Step 2a: Import packages


// <MMSmartStreaming 2a>
import com.mediamelon.smartstreaming.MMQBRMode;
import com.mediamelon.smartstreaming.MMSmartStreaming;
import com.mediamelon.smartstreaming.MMSmartStreamingTheo;
import com.mediamelon.smartstreaming.MMSmartStreamingInitializationStatus;
import com.mediamelon.smartstreaming.MMSmartStreamingObserver;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import android.util.Log;
// </MMSmartStreaming 2a>

Step 2b: Registration

Perform registration tasks by modifying the onCreate() method in app/src/main/java/com/theoplayer/theoplayerexample/

The enableLogTrace() feature should be enabled for testing during the integration process. Set this to False before releasing the player to production

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            public void onClick(View v) {
                if (theoPlayerView.getPlayer().isPaused()) {
                } else {
        //<MMSmartStreaming 2b>
        MMSmartStreamingTheo.enableLogTrace(<boolean>); //set to "false" before releasing player to production
        if (MMSmartStreamingTheo.getRegistrationStatus() == false){ //Check if it is the first time Registration process is done
            MMSmartStreamingExo2.registerMMSmartStreaming($PLAYERNAME, $CUSTOMERID, $SUBSCRIBERID, $DOMAINNAME, $SUBSCRIBERTYPE, $SUBSCRIBERTAG,$hashSubscriberId);
            MMSmartStreamingExo2.reportPlayerInfo("CustomPlayerName","Player_Version", "1.0");
            MMSmartStreamingExo2.getInstance().setContext(getApplicationContext()); //Please make sure to provide the application's context here, and not the activity's context
        // </MMSmartStreaming 2b>
  • hashSubscriberID: To hash the subscriber ID, set it to true. To leave the subscriber ID un-hashed, set it to false.This is optional

Parameters passed in Registration call



Player Name as in ExoPlayer, KalturaPlayer etc.


String containing your MediaMelon-assigned Customer ID.


String containing your subscriber’s ID. If you do not use subscriber IDs, leave it as it is.


String containing your section of your subscriber or assets. (Optional)


String containing the subscriber type (e.g. “Free”, “Paid”). If you do not use subscriber types, leave it as it is.


String containing an additional subscriber-specific information. This is sent in clear (not hashed) to SmartSight and it is advised to not send sensitive information in this field.

Step 3: Initialize Session

The SDK must be initialized at the start of each video session. Initialization includes setting the application context, initializing the playback session, and indicating the intent for playback with the SDK.


// after player is initialised and not null anymore
    String mediaUrl = "get the mediaURL from your application"
    String assetId  = "assetID"; //enter you assetId here
    String assetName = "assetNAME"; // enter your assetname here
    String videoId = "videoID"; // enter your videoId here
    ContentMetadata cm  = new ContentMetadata();
    String episodeNumber = "EpisodeNumber";
    String season = "Season";
    String genre = "Genre";
    String drmProtection = "drmProtection";
    String contentType = "contentType";
    String title = "Title";
    JSONObject contentMetadata = cm.getJSONObject();
    //optional content metadata
    MMSmartStreamingTheo.getInstance().initializeSession(player, MMQBRMode.QBRModeDisabled, mediaUrl, null,contentMetadata,isLive);
  • isLive: Set it to true for a live video and false for a VOD video. This is optional.

Step 4: Report ended state when the Activity is destroyed

protected void onDestroy() {
