Ooyala Player Plugin

This details how to implement the Adaptive plugin for Ooyala Player version 4.0 and above.

This install requires placing plugins within the page HTML and sending in the specific information for the client and video.

1. Add the IRIS.TV Ooyala CSS file to the HTML header. 

This will format the IRIS.TV interactivity buttons to the Ooyala player.

Example of IRIS.TV Ooyala CSS added to HTML header:

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <title>Ooyala iris Integration</title>

    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
        <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"&gt;&lt;/script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://ovp.iris.tv/plugins/ooyala/ooyala.css">

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ovp.iris.tv/plugins/ooyala/ooyala.min.js"></script>

3. Add irisSettings to "var playerParam" for Ooyala Player

The irisSettings control what custom settings will be used by the player. The only required plugin option is "client_token", which is used to identify the set of videos to make recommendations from. Further details on Adaptive Plugin Settings can be at UI Settings and Customization Options

Example of irisSettings:

    var playerParam = {
        irisSettings: {
            campaign_tracking: true,
            global: "iris_global_namespace",
            start_up_next: true,
            start_up_next_time: 14,
            end_up_next: true,
            end_up_next_text: "RECOMMENDED: ",
            client_token: "FLKJ10980AL"
    OO.ready(function () { window.pp = OO.Player.create('[player_name]', '[asset guid]', playerParam); });


Once the following is complete, you are ready to test your player.
