Standard Player

version-badge size-badge license-badge github-badge tweet-badge

The Standard Player is used to interact with a provider/embed through the core Vime player interface. If you'd like to know what features it includes and how it compares to other options then see the getting started page.


npm install @vime-js/standard

The dist folder inside the package contains multiple exports:

  • standard.js is a UMD development build that can be used directly in the browser via the <script> tag.
  • standard.esm.js is intended for use with modern bundlers like Webpack or Rollup.
  • standard.min.js is a UMD production build that can be used directly in the browser via the <script> tag.
  • standard.esm.min.js is an ESM production build that can be used directly in modern browsers via the <script type="module"> tag.
  • UMD builds are exported under the Vime namespace.
  • If you're using a bundler then it will automatically pull in the correct files.
  • If you're using svelte-loader or rollup-plugin-svelte then you'll receive the uncompiled components.


// All providers are named {ProviderName}Provider.
import { Player, FileProvider, YouTubeProvider } from '@vime-js/standard';
const target = document.getElementById('player-target');
// Mount
const player = new Player({
// If you'd like to initialize any props on setup, you can do so here.
props: {
src: '/media/my-video.mp4',
providers: [FileProvider, YouTubeProvider],
// ...
// Destroy

See the client-side component API for the complete set of component initialization options.
