Video program attributes

A video program's attributes depend on the type of its content. The program type tells the system what metadata to expect so that the UI can be filled in appropriately.

Video programs can be one of the following types:

Use PreviewProgram.Builder to build a program. You can read more about possible values for each field in the reference docs for each setter on the builder.


val program = PreviewProgram.Builder()
        // Set required attributes


PreviewProgram program = new PreviewProgram.Builder()
        // Set required attributes

The following table shows the attributes that can be assigned to each type of video program. Each attribute links to the corresponding setter in PreviewProgram.Builder. Attributes marked are required; those marked (✔) are optional.
