Android Plug-In – Our Latest Development

Android Plug-In

Our OrbitSoft team has started the New Year off by working on developing an Android plug-in. The purpose of this plug-in is to offer the ability to look through a catalog of video files and to watch the actual video files.

In the process of developing catalogs for video files, we worked to fulfill various requests, such as:

  • Receiving the list of videos with the ability to sort and filter by category
  • Searching by key words

The list of video files is presented as an endless list. In order to create this list, we used the RecyclerView widget, which is a more advanced and flexible version of ListView. It’s a container for displaying large data sets that can be scrolled very efficiently by maintaining a limited number of views. The RecyclerView widget is a great tool when you have data collections whose elements change at runtime based on user action or network events.

For the purposes of personalizing the user’s data, we set up a PIN code. If the user sets up a PIN in the settings, then the plug-in will ask for the PIN when the plug-in is turned on. Security is paramount!

In order to view video files in the plug-in, we integrated ExoPlayer, which is an application level medial player for Android. It provides an alternative to Android’s MediaPlayer API for playing audio and video, both locally and over the Internet. ExoPlayer is a cutting-edge tool which supports features not currently supported by Android’s MediaPlayer API, including DASH and SmoothStreaming adaptive playbacks. ExoPlayer is easy to customize and extend, and can be updated through the Play Store application updates.

We used a video controller for monitoring the videos and their quality, based on the user’s preferences. As a user, you can take a range of actions with the videos, including:

  • Add a video to selected
  • Mark a video as liked or not liked
  • Download a video
  • View a list of similar videos

You may be wondering how to view a video when not online. The answer is simple – the plug-in uses a service for downloading video files. You have the option of downloading the file into your phone’s internal memory or onto an SD card. User’s activity on the plug-in can be tracked through the Flurry Analytics service, which we have integrated for this purpose.

Finally, as could be expected, the Android plug-in displays advertising from the Orbit Ad Server platform. The plug-in will feature banner ads, as well as interstitial ads on the pages of the video player.

As you can see, we’ve had a busy start to the year. We will continue working hard to bring more technological advantages to our clients throughout 2017 and beyond!

The concept of conversion in advertising is an indicator that shows the positive effect of ads on the website. Positive conversion can be user registration, newsletter subscription, product ordering and much more.

Conversion Tracker Plug-in

The higher the conversion, the better it is for the website owner.  For example, the conversion rates for advertisers show the effectiveness of their ads for certain product.

To main way to increase the conversion rate on your website is to use lots of banners or contextual ads, work on usability and site optimization for search engines.
