                        { url: "http://bradmax.com/static/video/tears_of_steel.mp4" }
                    ]
                }
            };

            /** find player container in html DOM tree. */
            var element = document.getElementById("player_DOM_id");

            /** create player */
            var player = window.bradmax.player.create(element, config);

            /** get javascript api */
            var jsapi = player.modules.JavascriptApi;

            /** get destroy player api */
            var destroyPlayer = window.bradmax.player.destroy;

            /** handle player close event */
            jsapi.on("close", function() {
                destroyPlayer(player);
            });
        </script>

4. Example of events handling.

<html>
    <body>
        <div style="width: 890px; height: 500px; background: black;" id="PLAYER_DOM_ID"></div>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            var player = window.bradmax.player.create(document.getElementById("PLAYER_DOM_ID"), {
                dataProvider: {
                    source: [
                        { url: "http://bradmax.com/static/video/tears_of_steel.mp4" }
                    ]
                }
            });
            function removePlayer()
            {
                window.bradmax.player.destroy(player);
            }

            var element = document.getElementById("player");
            var player = window.bradmax.player.create(element, playerConfig);
            var jsapi = player.modules.JavascriptApi;

            jsapi.on("close", removePlayer);
            
            jsapi.play();
            jsapi.pause();
            jsapi.add("VideoEvent.paused", onPause);
            jsapi.add("VideoEvent.currentTimeChange", onCurrentTimeChange);
            jsapi.add("VideoEvent.complete", onComplete);
            jsapi.add("DataProviderEvent.mediaMetadataData", onNewMovieSet);

            //movie data recived by player
            function onNewMovieSet(e) {     
                jsapi.remove("VideoEvent.playing", onPlay);
                jsapi.addOnce("VideoEvent.playing", onFirstPlay);
            }

            //first play event
            function onFirstPlay(e) {
                jsapi.add("VideoEvent.playing", onPlay);
            }

            //play event, does not triggered with first play
            function onPlay(e) {
                alert(' bradmax player "onPlay" handler ');
            }

            //pause event
            function onPause(e) {
                alert(' bradmax player "onPause" handler ');
            }

            //movie progress event
            function onCurrentTimeChange(e) {
                alert(' bradmax player current time :' + e.data.currentTime);
            }

            //movie complete event
            function onComplete(e) {
                alert(' bradmax player "onComplete" handler ');
            }
        </script>

5. Example of playing playlist.

<html>
    <body>
        <div style="width: 890px; height: 500px; background: black;" id="PLAYER_DOM_ID"></div>
        <script type="text/javascript">
                var media = {
                    dataProvider: [
                    {
                        title: "Big Buck Bunny",
                        duration: 596.0,
                        source: [{
                            url: "https://bradmax.com/static/video/tos/big_buck_bunny.m3u8",
                        }]
                    },
                    {
                        title: "Tears of steel",
                        duration: 734.097415,
                        source: [{
                            url: "https://bradmax.com/static/video/tears_of_steel.mp4",
                        }],
                        splashImages: [{
                            url: "http://bradmax.com/static/images/startsplash.jpg",
                        }]
                    }]
                };
                var element = document.getElementById("PLAYER_DOM_ID");
                var player = window.bradmax.player.create(element, media);
            </script>
    </body>
</html>

NOTE: For proper playlist handling player has to be properly configured.

  1. Open player configurator page (open page: https://bradmax.com/client/panel/admin/player/list and create new player or select one for edition ).
  2. Select “Skin configuration” > "end splash".
  3. From available types choose “countdown” or “tiles”. For these types player will correctly handle playlist.

6. Example of player playlist with changing page on video change.

Below is example of player with playlist, where video is played on custom page. In such case only first video from playlist will be played by player on page. Next video from playlist will be played on custom player pages after user click on selected video. This playlist can be used for presenting recomended next video for user. First item from list is video, which will be played on current page.
