This is a special interaction plugin that allows you to select a platform-compatible player at runtime. Additionally, the settings of the selected player are made available. The plugin can be used with version 0.1.145 or higher.


The plugin must be loaded with a video URL. Optionally, the player button (to make the player selection available) can be indicated. Additionally, the related content button can be displayed in the player selection panel (e.g. if the player button is set to the content button). Please see following action syntax examples.

If you would like to use the plugin as reference to implement your own plugin, please have a look at this implementation script:
