Google Cloud (Anvato) Player Plugin

This details how to implement the Adaptive Plugin for the Anvato Player.

Required for Integration

Before integrating a Google Cloud (Anvato) client should send IRIS.TV:

  1. A Secret Key
  2. A video feed for IRIS.TV ingestion

Secret Key

The Secret Key is used by IRIS.TV to authenticate videos on playback. The Secret Key should be the one associated with the Anvack key that the client is currently using for video playback.

If creating a new key, please edit the advance function to make sure that all playback devices are added.

Video Feed

The video feed can an already existing feed, or a feed created for IRIS.TV In either instance, the feed should be compatible with the Anvack key that was also shared with IRIS.TV. The Anvack key configuration can found in the Playout Settings in the Feed Creation and Edit Feed screens.

Configured the following fields to sent out in the feed:

  • Title
  • Description
  • Tags
  • Publish Date
  • Expire Date (where applicable)

Player Integration

After IRIS.TV has imported assets, the client is ready to install the plugin. The IRIS.TV Anvato plugin and IRIS.TV Adaptive library is installed in the HTML headers.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

From there, the IRIS.TV plugin can be customized using the plugin options. Below is an example of the different plugin options that can be used in the IRIS.TV plugin:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var irisOptions = {
        settings: {
            player_id: 'p0',
            ssl: true,
            player_version: 'anvato',
            start_up_next: true,
            end_up_next: true,
            client_token: 'FARL6YIA8AX2NYU',
            platform: 'anvato',
            platform_id: "4581077"
          iris_buttons: {
            thumbs_up: true,
            thumbs_down: true,
            skip_forward: true,
            skip_back: true
          debug: true,
          global: "iris1"
    var anvp = anvp ? anvp : {};
    anvp[irisOptions.settings.player_id] ? true : anvp[irisOptions.settings.player_id] = {};
    anvp[irisOptions.settings.player_id].onReady = function(playerInstance) {
        loadIrisPlugin(irisOptions, playerInstance);


Definitions on the above options along with other IRIS.TV Adaptive customization can be found on the Adaptive Plugin Customization page.
