Media playback( Behaviour components) in Flutter

Updated 7 December 2023


In this blog, we are learning that the ‘Media playback’ in Flutter involves several components, which work together to provide a seamless and responsive media playback experience. These components include:

  1. Media Player: This is the core component responsible for playing the media. In Flutter, you can use the VideoPlayer or Chewie package to play video files. For playing audio files, you can use the audioplayers package.
  2. User Interface (UI) Controls: These are the buttons and controls that the user interacts with to control the media playback. The UI controls typically include play/pause, rewind, forward, and volume controls. In Flutter, you can use pre-built UI controls such as CupertinoControls or MaterialControls, or you can build your own custom controls.
  3. Video/Audio Source: This is the source of the media that you want to play. In Flutter, you can load media from a file on disk, from a network URL, or from an asset bundle.

Here’s an example of how to implement media playback in Flutter using the video_player package:

Add pubspec.yaml file:


create an instance of the VideoPlayerController class with the video source:

After adding this controller you can Initialize the VideoPlayerController and wait for it to finish loading:

then we are creating a widget to play videos in the main UI :

After creating the video widget we are adding the play/pause functionality to the video:

Now, we have created the video play functionality in futter so here is the full example code:
