Version Support

This is an advanced plugin and due to that it works on videojs versions 6+ see here.


npm install --save videojs-share


To include videojs-share on your website or web application, use any of the following methods.

<script> Tag

This is the simplest case. Get the script in whatever way you prefer and include the plugin after you include video.js, so that the videojs global is available.

<script src="//path/to/video.min.js"></script>
<script src="//path/to/videojs-share.min.js"></script>


When using with Browserify, install videojs-share via npm and require the plugin as you would any other module.

var videojs = require('video.js');

// The actual plugin function is exported by this module, but it is also
// attached to the `Player.prototype`; so, there is no need to assign it
// to a variable.


When using with RequireJS (or another AMD library), get the script in whatever way you prefer and require the plugin as you normally would:

require(['video.js', 'videojs-share'], function(videojs) {
  var player = videojs('my-video');

var player = videojs('my-video');
