Implement chapter support

Last update: 2023-10-02

You can define and track custom chapters for video tracking in TVSDK-based applications.

Custom chapters are managed by the application, and are based on CMS data or on another way that the application uses to define chapters.


Default chapters are not supported in the 2.5 Android TVSDK.

  1. Define and track custom chapters.

    // First, enable chapter tracking by setting
    // enableChapterTracking to true:
    // For custom chapter definitions, provide
    // an array list of chapters through the metadata.
    // For example: 3 chapters of 60 second duration each
    List<VideoAnalyticsChapterData> chapters =
      new ArrayList<VideoAnalyticsChapterData>();
    Int chapterDuration = 60;
    for (var i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
        VideoAnalyticsChapterData chapterData =
          new VideoAnalyticsChapterData(i * chapterDuration, (i + 1) * chapterDuration);
        chapterData.setName("chapter_" + (i+1));
