Player Android / AndroidTV Release 3.8.0

Stable

10/12/2021

3.8.0

Added

  • PlayerNotificationManager.createWithNotificationChannel overload that takes a CustomActionReceiver
  • Source.getThumbnail to expose thumbnails for inactive sources in a player
  • AdItem.preloadOffset to specify the amount of seconds the ad manifest should be loaded in advance compared to when the ad break is scheduled for playback
  • Support for background playback of IMA ads

Changed

  • The offset with which the manifest for ads was preloaded now defaults to 0 seconds instead of 10. With the introduction of AdItem.preloadOffset, this can now be configured per ad break.

Fixed

  • Bitmovin Web UI using an invalid duration when joining an existing cast session
  • Bitmovin Web UI using an invalid duration after pre-roll ad was played when autoplay is enabled
  • Bitmovin Web UI occasionally not reflecting the correct current time when starting a cast session while playback is paused
  • Cast receiver incorrectly displaying live source with VoD UI
  • Player.duration returning 0.0 instead of -1.0 if it is unknown during casting
  • Player crashing if it gets detached from the PlayerView while ads are scheduled
