Welcome to the Bitmovin Player React Native SDK!

The open-source Bitmovin Player React Native SDK allows you to integrate the Bitmovin Player into React Native application projects with ease. Under the hood, the SDK builds on our native Android and iOS Player SDKs and offers many of the same great features.

Getting Started

For a quick start with the Player React Native SDK, please check out the Getting Started guide, which walks you through integrating the Player into your React Native project. Alternatively, you can use the low-code wizard in the Bitmovin Dashboard to get started with just a few clicks.


As the library is under active development, certain features from our native SDKs are not yet exposed through the React Native SDK. The table below summarizes the current state of the major Player features.
