2. Usage

  var videoUrl = STREAMING_VIDEO_URL;

  // Just play a video
  window.plugins.streamingMedia.playVideo(videoUrl);

  // Play a video with callbacks
  var options = {
    successCallback: function() {
      console.log("Video was closed without error.");
    },
    errorCallback: function(errMsg) {
      console.log("Error! " + errMsg);
    }
  };
  window.plugins.streamingMedia.playVideo(videoUrl, options);


  var audioUrl = STREAMING_AUDIO_URL;

  // Play an audio file (not recommended, since the screen will be plain black)
  window.plugins.streamingMedia.playAudio(audioUrl);

  // Play an audio file with options (all options optional)
  var options = {
    bgColor: "#FFFFFF",
    bgImage: "<SWEET_BACKGROUND_IMAGE>",
    bgImageScale: "fit",
    successCallback: function() {
      console.log("Player closed without error.");
    },
    errorCallback: function(errMsg) {
      console.log("Error! " + errMsg);
    }
  };
  window.plugins.streamingMedia.playAudio(audioUrl, options);
