DataSourceCallback

abstract class DataSourceCallback : Closeable
kotlin.Any
   ↳ androidx.media2.common.DataSourceCallback

For supplying media data, implement this if your app has special requirements for the way media data is obtained.

Methods of this interface may be called on multiple different threads. There will be a thread synchronization point between each call to ensure that modifications to the state of your DataSourceCallback are visible to future calls. This means you don't need to do your own synchronization unless you're modifying the DataSourceCallback from another thread while it's being used by the media library.

Public methods

getSize

abstract fun getSize(): Long

Called to get the size of the data source.

Return
Long: the size of data source in bytes, or -1 if the size is unknown.
Exceptions
IOException on fatal errors

readAt

abstract fun readAt(position: Long, @NonNull buffer: ByteArray, offset: Int, size: Int): Int

Called to request data from the given position. Implementations should should write up to size bytes into buffer, and return the number of bytes written. Return 0 if size is zero (thus no bytes are read). Return -1 to indicate that end of stream is reached.

Parameters
position Long: the position in the media item to read from.
buffer Long: the buffer to read the data into.
offset Long: the offset within buffer to read the data into.
size Long: the number of bytes to read.
Return
Int: the number of bytes read, or -1 if the end of stream was reached.
Exceptions
IOException on fatal errors.
