Introduction

  • Streaming: Griffith makes streaming easy. Whether your video format is mp4 or hls, Griffith can use Media Source Extension (MSE) for segment loading.
  • Extensibility: Griffith makes it simple to support video features in React apps. It also supports the UMD (Universal Module Definition) patterns for direct use in the browser if your application is not based on React.
  • Reliability: Griffith has been widely used in the web and mobile web of Zhihu.

Custom Build

Build tools like webpack include griffith-mp4 and griffith-hls by default. You can make your bundle smaller by injecting aliases at build-time.

If you use webpack, do so with resolve.alias:

// webpack v5+
module.exports = {
  resolve: {
    alias: {
      'griffith-hls': false,
      'griffith-mp4': false,
    },
  },
}

// webpack v4
module.exports = {
  resolve: {
    alias: {
      'griffith-hls': 'griffith/null',
      'griffith-mp4': 'griffith/null',
    },
  },
}

Note that without griffith-mp4 / griffith-hls Griffith can no longer play MP4 / HLS media unless the browser supports it natively.
