FAQ - Open Video UI

Does the Open Video UI require a license?
The Open Video UI is open source, so everyone can access it. It’s specifically developed for THEOplayer though, which requires a commercial license. Contact us if you’d like to give it a try!
Is it possible to add/remove new UI elements during runtime?
Yes, these changes can be reflected in real-time even during runtime. Thanks to web component in JavaScript, everything is just HTML element, and everything automatically updates. For Android, we are using Jetpack Compose, so every time you change the composition, the UI updates too. 
Where can I find more information about the THEOplayer Open Video UI?
More information can be found in GitHub (Web, Android, React Native) and our API documentation.
I’ve built a chromeless UI on top of THEOplayer. Can I re-use the code and still move to the Open Video UI?
Yes, it's possible. If you already have UI components, these can communicate with Open Video UI. However, for a smoother experience, we recommend using only the Open Video UI.
