From Remote URL

Download the video file#

Although you can pass a URL directly to the editor, we strongly recommend that you manage to download the remote resource yourself. This allows you more control over where and how the download task is being executed and avoids potential problems around UI locking.

Here, we download a video from a remote URL using coroutines and save it in a local file. While the download is running, we show a loader and dismiss it when the download is finished.

Start Editor#

Configure the LoadSettings to set the source to the Uri of the file. The VideoEditorBuilder takes in the configured VideoEditorSettingsList and starts the video editor. The result is obtained in the onActivityResult() method when the editor exits.
