Getting Started

To be able to quickly add Eyevinn HTML Player to your project we are hosting the player and delivered through our CDN. Want to use a package manager and host the player on your site head over to the download section.


Copy-paste the stylesheet <link> into your <head> to load the CSS for the player.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">


Place the following <script> near the end of your pages right before the closing </body> tag.

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>


The snippet below shows an example on how to implement the player:

    <!-- Eyevinn HTML Player CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=""></link>
    <!-- The element where the player will be placed -->
    <div id="player-wrapper"></div>

    <!-- Eyevinn HTML Player Javascript -->
    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <!-- Initiate the player and auto-play with audio muted -->
      document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function(event) {
        setupEyevinnPlayer('player-wrapper', '').then(function(player) {
          var muteOnStart = true;
