I am relatively new to Xamarin.Forms and am currently working on a cross-platform app. Part of the app requires videos to be played using Brightcove's Player SDK (Java classes). I have created a Binding Project for this and am able to play videos on Android.
My views are created in the PCL of my app but the Brightcove SDK is native so I have developed an Android Activity to implement the Player. What I am now trying to do is find a way to run that Activity as part of one of my views, i.e. when someone clicks a particular button on the app the Activity will run and play a video as the top half of one of my PCL views.
I was just wondering if anyone has any guidance on the best way to do this? Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks very much,
