DefaultMediaNotificationProvider

@UnstableApi
class DefaultMediaNotificationProvider : MediaNotification.Provider


The default MediaNotification.Provider.

Actions

The following actions are included in the provided notifications:

Custom commands

Custom actions are sent to the session under the hood. You can receive them by overriding the session callback method onCustomCommand. This is useful because starting with Android 13, the System UI notification sends commands directly to the session. So handling the custom commands on the session level allows you to handle them at the same callback for all API levels.

Drawables

The drawables used can be overridden by drawables with the same names defined the application. The drawables are:
  • media3_notification_play - The play icon.
  • media3_notification_pause - The pause icon.
  • media3_notification_seek_to_previous - The previous icon.
  • media3_notification_seek_to_next - The next icon.
  • media3_notification_small_icon - The small icon. A different icon can be set with setSmallIcon.

String resources

String resources used can be overridden by resources with the same names defined the application. These are:
  • media3_controls_play_description - The description of the play icon.
  • media3_controls_pause_description - The description of the pause icon.
  • media3_controls_seek_to_previous_description - The description of the previous icon.
  • media3_controls_seek_to_next_description - The description of the next icon.
  • default_notification_channel_name The name of the on which created notifications are posted. A different string resource can be set when constructing the provider with setChannelName.

Handles a notification's custom command.

Parameters
session: MediaSession!

The media session.

action: String!

addNotificationActions

protected fun addNotificationActions(
    mediaSession: MediaSession!,
    mediaButtons: (Mutable)List<CommandButton!>!,
    builder: NotificationCompat.Builder!,
    actionFactory: MediaNotification.ActionFactory!
): IntArray<Int>!

Adds the media buttons to the notification builder for the given action factory.

The list of mediaButtons is the list resulting from getMediaButtons.

Override this method to customize how the media buttons are added to the notification and define which actions are shown in compact view by returning the indices of the buttons to be shown in compact view.

By default, COMMAND_PLAY_PAUSE is shown in compact view, unless some of the buttons are marked with COMMAND_KEY_COMPACT_VIEW_INDEX to declare the index in compact view of the given command button in the button extras.

Parameters
mediaSession: MediaSession!

The media session to which the actions will be sent.

mediaButtons: (Mutable)List<CommandButton!>!

The command buttons to be included in the notification.

builder: NotificationCompat.Builder!

The builder to add the actions to.

actionFactory: MediaNotification.ActionFactory!

The actions factory to be used to build notifications.

Returns
IntArray<Int>!

The indices of the buttons to be used in compact view of the notification.

getMediaButtons

protected fun getMediaButtons(
    playerCommands: Player.Commands!,
    customLayout: (Mutable)List<CommandButton!>!,
    showPauseButton: Boolean
): (Mutable)List<CommandButton!>!

Returns the ordered list of command buttons to be used to build the notification.

This method is called each time a new notification is built.

Override this method to customize the buttons on the notification. Commands of the buttons returned by this method must be contained in getAvailableCommands.

By default, the notification shows COMMAND_PLAY_PAUSE in compact view. This can be customized by defining the index of the command in compact view of up to 3 commands in their extras with key COMMAND_KEY_COMPACT_VIEW_INDEX.

To make the custom layout and commands work, you need to set the custom layout of commands and add the custom commands to the available commands when a controller connects to the session. Controllers that connect after you called setCustomLayout need the custom command set in onPostConnect also.

Parameters
playerCommands: Player.Commands!

The available player commands.

customLayout: (Mutable)List<CommandButton!>!

The custom layout of commands.

showPauseButton: Boolean

Whether the notification should show a pause button (e.g., because the player is currently playing content), otherwise show a play button to start playback.

The ordered list of command buttons to be placed on the notification.
