SureVideo for Android now comes with built-in set of Javascript APIs. Use these APIs in an HTML file and specify the file as Custom Layout Home Screen.

The APIs are written as window.surevideo.<API_Name>

Following is a comprehensive list of SureVideo APIs:

  • launch(‘file_path’): Launches a media file.


  • loopMedia(): Loops the allowed media files once and returns back to SureVideo Home Screen.


  • launchApp(‘packagename‘ , freshlaunch): Launches an application.

      window.surevideo.launchApp(‘’, true);

  • closeSureVideo(): Closes SureVideo.
