          } }


  • NextBtnFun The method of the next episode button in full screen. When it is the last episode, the value should be changed to false and the button should be grayed out
const  { data }  =  this . state 
//data.index is the number of episodes 
//When the 
number of episodes currently played is the same as the total number of episodes, reset nextBtnFun to false nextBtnFun = { 
  data.index == data.datalist[data.datalist.length - 1].num - 1 ? false : this.nextBtnFun
  • onLoad The callback that the video can start playing after loading successfully inherits react-native-veideo

  • poster video cover image The cover image displayed when the video cannot be played is not the loading frame inherits the react-native-video poster eg:poster={" http://i1.hdslb.com/bfs/archive/[email protected] 320w_200h.jpg"}
  • ..... Inherit all the methods and properties of react-native-video

Exposure method

import {NgxuSetting} from 'react-native-rn-videoplayer'

Show or hide the virtual buttons at the bottom of Android

const Setting = new NgxuSetting()

Get the phone system brightness

const Setting = new NgxuSetting()

Change ios system brightness android current app brightness

  • Android only changes the current active brightness and does not modify the system brightness. Modifying the system brightness is very troublesome. It requires the user to manually open the phone settings, app permission settings, and manually open the advanced permissions of "Allow to modify system settings"
  • ios is to change the system brightness, you can
   const Setting = new NgxuSetting()
