AAMP player in Browser

Hi All,

I am using the AAMP player to play video content in a lightning app. However, I have encountered an issue during development - the AAMP player only runs on Comcast STBs and plays in a box. As such, I need to push a new build to the STB every time, which is taking too much time.

I am wondering if anyone knows how to run the AAMP player in a local browser during development. Currently, I am receiving an error in the browser that says “AAMP player is not defined” because it has not been imported. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any package or GitHub repository for it.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to achieve this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

You’ll have to reach out to Comcast to get more information on how to do it. They have a viper video player API which abstracts the playback for different platforms. So it will use AMP on comcast devices and Video HTML playback on other devices.
