Auto play, Loop Video, Time Calculation, Custom Video Player

Many a times, video streaming sites look to autoplay the video through the video player as soon as the page is loaded. Also, you may wish to loop the media in the video player and present the content again and again to the same viewer. It is generally desired that the bandwidth does not get consumed again on the same page when a video is repeated.

Some of you may want to hide player skin or use custom colors and controls for the video player. Certain times, you will need to get total time viewed by each viewer for each video to put certain restrictions on the user.

VdoCipher along with secure video streaming aims to give a complete suite to our customers to make a custom player. Here are the details for the following functionalities. Do check our embed api first to see how to embed videos.

  1. Autoplay in video player

    Here is the code –

    window.onVdoCipherAPIReady = function(){
       var videos = vdo.getObjects(); // use global variable vdo to query
       var video = videos[videos.length - 1];
       video.addEventListener('loaded', function(){
           video.start(); // set video to autoplay

    Just add this to your HTML will cause the video to autoplay

  2. Loop Video in player – Replay the video when it reaches end

    window.onVdoCipherAPIReady = function(){
       var videos = vdo.getObjects(); // use global variable vdo to query
       var video = videos[videos.length - 1];
       video.addEventListener('end', function(){
  3. Time Calculation per video playback

<div id="vdo<?= $OTP ?>" style="height: 300px; width: 520px;"></div>
<input type="text" id="totalPlayed" value="" />

/// this is the embed code

    (function(v,i,d,e,o){v[o]={}; v[o].a = v[o].a || function V(a){ (v[o].d=v[o].d||[]).push(a);};
    if(!v[o].l) { v[o].l=1*new Date(); a=i.createElement(d), m=i.getElementsByTagName(d)[0];
    a.async=1; a.src=e; m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m);}
        o: "<?= $OTP ?>",

/// this is the script

function onVdoCipherAPIReady(){
    console.log("VdoCipher API init");
    var videoObjects = vdo.getObjects();
    var video_ = videoObjects[0];
    video_.addEventListener("ready", function(data){
        console.log("ready event called" , data);
    video_.addEventListener("progress", function(data){
        document.getElementById('totalPlayed').value = data.totalPlayed;

Note: Make sure you are using the latest embed script in your code as described at

4. Some useful player events to capture

Returns the complete list of vdocipher videos ever loaded on page

var videoObjects = vdo.getObjects();

Go the proper index. In most cases, the last embedded video is required

var video_ = videoObjects[videoObjects.length -1];

Pause and Resume

video_.pause()               // pause
video_.resume()              // resume
Listening to events:
To get the start of a video –
var videos = window.vdo.getObjects();
var video = videos[videos.length - 1]; // use the last added video
video.addEventListener('start', function() {
    console.log('video has started');
Similarly. replace ‘start’ in the above code for the below events for –
  • “end”
  • “start”
  • “resume”
  • “pause”
  • “mute”
  • “unmute”
  • “changeVolume”

Business Video Alternative to Vimeo and YouTube

Why not to host videos on Vimeo and YouTube ?

Vimeo and YouTube have a free offering to help consumers and businesses host videos on either their own platform or on Vimeo/ YouTube directly. Still, many times businesses tend to choose options other than Vimeo and YouTube to better fulfill their requirements and make large revenues.

7 Reasons to choose VdoCipher instead of YouTube or Vimeo ?

  1. Secure Video Streaming

    Viewers can easily download videos from Vimeo and from YouTube,  using so many free tools, downloaders, plugins and hacks. VdoCipher encrypted video streaming ensures 100% download protection from piracy.

  2. Customers & Testimonials Ease of Video Management

    Vimeo and YouTube do not provide detailed aspects related to custom Video deletion, ID management, upload from server, FTP, URL, Dropbox or Tag-based video management. VdoCipher offers all these features through APIs and GUIs.

    Vdocipher unlike others allows you to set custom multiple bitrates, using a full enterprise level encoder for all devices. The Vdocipher player can be modified by developers to change controls, add call to actions, change color and fully provide the desired look and interaction.

Upload, embed, tagging, watermarking, security, user based authentication, licensing, lot of things need to be managed in an API workflow. VdoCipher is far ahead of vimeo or youtube in API offerings.

ASP implementation of VdoCipher API

Here is a classic ASP code to use VdoCipher API along with dynamic watermarking. You need to simply put in the right client_secret_key and the correct video_id ( the phrase in caps in both files )

The code should work out of the box after extracting inside ASP server and replacing secret_key and video_id.
