Happy Coding!


CDF-NG-MEDIA requires the latest version of Angular (at the time of this writing: 2.4.7).

  "dependencies": {
    "@angular/common": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/compiler": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/core": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/forms": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/http": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/platform-browser": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "2.4.7",
    "@angular/router": "3.4.7"

CDF-NG-MEDIA also utilizes the following 3rd party sources:

  • JW Player as the vehicle for loading videos. CDF-NG-MEDIA is currently using:
    • JW Player version 7.6.1


CDF-NG-MEDIA requires a JW Player key in order for JW Player to work correctly. You will need to create an account and establish a JW Player key. You will provide the JW Player Key during configuration. See JW Player for creating an account.

Installing CDF-NG-MEDIA in your Angular application:


    npm install @cdf/cdf-ng-media --save


    //STEP 2: create a config file (cdf-media-config.ts) to provide configuration settings:

    import { ConfigInterface } from '@cdf/cdf-ng-media/lib';

    export const CdfMediaConfig: ConfigInterface =
        JwPlayerKey: 'YOUR JW PLAYER KEY'

  //STEP 3: configure your AppModule:

    // app.module.ts
    import { CdfModule } from '@cdf/cdf-ng/lib';
    import { CdfMediaConfig } from './configs';
      declarations: [ ... ],
      imports: [
        //3rd PARTY
      providers: [ ... ],
      bootstrap: [ ... ]
    export class AppModule { }


CDF-NG-MEDIA containes the following models needed to show media asset(s):

  • CdfMediaModel
  • CdfVideoModel


CdfMediaModel is the model that contains data about the media asset (image and/or video). CdfMediaModel contains the following data points:

    Id: string;
    Type: string;
    Title: string;
    Description: string;
    ImageUri: string;
    YouTubeId: string;
    VideoList: CdfVideoModel[] = [];
    HasImage: boolean = false;
    HasVideo: boolean = false;  
  • Type can be used to apply a label ontop of the media asset (perfect for a collection of media assets of different types)
  • ImageUri is the complete http URL to an image
  • YouTubeId is the unique value representing a YouTube video (ex. 8geR0yacozY)
  • VideoList is an optional collection of URIs to different videos. This is a placeholder for future functionality


CdfVideoModel is a placeholder data model for future development.

CDF-NG-MEDIA Components

CDF-NG-MEDIA containes the following components you can use:

  • CdfMediaComponent
  • CdfMediaSliderComponent
  • CdfVideoBackgroundComponent


CdfMediaComponent is the base component used to display either an image or a video. CdfMediaComponent consumes CdfMediaModel which contains all the data necessary to determine if the media asset is a video or an image.


CdfMediaSliderComponent is a component handling a collection of CdfMediaModels (mix of images and/or videos). CdfMediaSliderComponent arranges the media in a grid. If one of the items is a video, then playing the video will cause an information pane to slide out showing media's title, type, description and a button to click. You can toggle on/off title, type, and description.

<cdf-media-slider [mediaModelList]="mediaModelList" 


CdfVideoBackgroundComponent uses JW Player's capability to run a video contained in CdfMediaModel in the background.
