Swift Question

Getting Current Time of a Video (Player - Swift)

I set up a video player using Player (using AVFoundation). I am trying to access and manipulate currentTime of the video however, the library is only providing duration of the video but not currentTime.

I am tweaking the demo project of Player.




Please check 'Updated' section below instead of here:

A friend told me I can achieve using that approach, but I couldn't really get how to adapt this approach in this case.

[NSTimer scheduledTimerWithInterval:1.0 target:self selector:@selector(refreshCurrentTimeTextField) userInfo:nil repeats:YES]

-(void)refreshCurrentTimeTextField {
NSTimeInterval currentTime;
QTMovie *movie = [movieView movie];
QTGetTimeInterval([movie currentTime], &currentTime);

int hours = currentTime/3600;
int minutes = (currentTime/60) % 60;
int seconds = currentTime % 60;

NSString *timeLabel;
if(hours > 0) {
timeLabel = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%02i:%02i:%02i", hours, minutes, seconds];
} else {
timeLabel = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%02i:%02i", minutes, seconds];
}
[yourTextField setStringValue:timeLabel];
}


If any of you guys used or stumbled on this library, is there any way of getting currentTime? Is there any alternative way of accessing/manipulating currentTime of the video?




Update:

Someone apparently gave the code for the importing & connecting UISlider for Objective-C for equivalent library PBJVideoPlayer in here. But I couldn't adapt the same approach on Swift for Player.

I just run you GitHub project and i fixed it by following code:

In your Player.swift Class.

 player.addPeriodicTimeObserverForInterval(CMTimeMake(1, 100), queue: dispatch_get_main_queue()) {
            [unowned self] time in
            let timeString = String(format: "%02.2f", CMTimeGetSeconds(time))

            print("time is \(timeString)")
            self.delegate?.playerPlaybackstimer(timeString)

            }

That Above method added in public convenience init() { funtion so that will be look like:

 public convenience init() {
        self.init(nibName: nil, bundle: nil)
        self.player = AVPlayer()




        self.player.actionAtItemEnd = .Pause
        self.player.addObserver(self, forKeyPath: PlayerRateKey, options: ([NSKeyValueObservingOptions.New, NSKeyValueObservingOptions.Old]) , context: &PlayerObserverContext)

        self.playbackLoops = false
        self.playbackFreezesAtEnd = false
        self.playbackState = .Stopped
        self.bufferingState = .Unknown


        player.addPeriodicTimeObserverForInterval(CMTimeMake(1, 100), queue: dispatch_get_main_queue()) {
            [unowned self] time in
            let timeString = String(format: "%02.2f", CMTimeGetSeconds(time))

            print("time is \(timeString)")
            self.delegate?.playerPlaybackstimer(timeString)

            }

    }

After that i make a Delegate method in public protocol PlayerDelegate: classthat will be look like:

public protocol PlayerDelegate: class {
    func playerReady(player: Player)
    func playerPlaybackStateDidChange(player: Player)
    func playerBufferingStateDidChange(player: Player)

    func playerPlaybackWillStartFromBeginning(player: Player)
    func playerPlaybackDidEnd(player: Player)

     func playerPlaybackstimer(NSString: String)
}

Now go in your ViewController.swift class and add the following function:

func playerPlaybackstimer(NSString: String) {

        print("currunt time \(NSString)")
    }

Now run your project and enjoy.
