android – java.lang.IllegalStateException: YouTubeServiceEntity not initialized error when using YouTubePlayerApi

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m using YouTubePlayerAPI and YouTubePlayerSupportFragment in my app and I’m getting the following error, but I couldn’t find out what is causing it. I’ve been looking for information but I haven’t found anything useful.

In the stackstrace there isn’t any line number pointing to any of my classes or activities.

Any idea of it?

Thanks!

EDIT

My custom YoutubePlayerFragment Class: YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment.java

public class YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment extends YouTubePlayerSupportFragment {


private static final String ARG_URL = "url";


// ===========================================================
// Constructors
// ===========================================================

/**
 * Mandatory empty constructor for the fragment manager to instantiate the
 * fragment (e.g. upon screen orientation changes).
 */
public YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment() {
}

/**
 * Factory method to generate a new instance of the fragment given a video URL.
 *
 * @param url The video url this fragment represents
 * @return A new instance of this fragment with itemId extras
 */
public static YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment newInstance(String url) {
    final YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment mFragment = new YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment();

    // Set up extras
    final Bundle args = new Bundle();
    args.putString(ARG_URL, url);
    mFragment.setArguments(args);

    // Initialize YouTubePlayer
    mFragment.init();

    return mFragment;
}



@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

}

private void init(){
    initialize(Constants.API_KEY, new YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener() {
        @Override
        public void onInitializationSuccess(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider, YouTubePlayer youTubePlayer, boolean wasRestored) {
            if (!wasRestored) {
                youTubePlayer.cueVideo(getArguments().getString(ARG_URL));
                youTubePlayer.setShowFullscreenButton(false);
            }
    }
}

fragment.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <FrameLayout
        android:id="@+id/youtube_fragment"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />

</RelativeLayout>

calling method:

// Create a new instance of YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment providing video id
        // and place it in the corresponding FrameLayout
        final YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment youTubeVideoPlayerFragment = YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment.newInstance(VIDEO_ID);
        final FragmentTransaction ft = getChildFragmentManager().beginTransaction();
        ft.replace(R.id.youtube_fragment, youTubeVideoPlayerFragment);
        ft.commit();

EDIT

I’ve found out the origin of that error. This is the scenario:

The activity starts. In onCreate() it instantiates a new YouTubeVideoPlayerFragment and initializes YouTube object (which starts the YouTubeServiceEntity internally) in its newInstance() method. Then the YouTube fragment that was instantiated before, is attached with FragmentManager to the corresponding FrameLayout while video is loading.

Here is the issue: If user exits the activity before video had been loaded, the exception is thrown.

So if user want to exit from the activity in that case, what should I do and how? I don’t really know what to do!

How to&Answers:

Once again, do NOT use fragment constructors or factory methods to work with lifecycle or context bound entities. Simply put, such entities can only be used after super.onCreate(...) has been called.

The question now is, when to call the init method?

Here’s what YouTubePlayerFragment documentation says:

The YouTubePlayer associated with this fragment will be released whenever its onDestroyView() method is called. You will therefore have to re-call initialize(String, YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener) whenever the activity associated with this fragment is recreated, even if the fragment instance is retained across activity re-creation by setting setRetainInstance(boolean).

You may be tempted to put init() in onActivityCreated but that’s too late, since onStart was already called and layout already performed.

Counterpart to onDestroyView is onViewCreated and that’s the perfect candidate.

@Override
public void onViewCreated(View view, Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onViewCreated(view, savedInstanceState);
    init();
}

As suggested call setRetainInstance(true) in the fragment’s constructor. When the activity is recreated the fragment will not be recreated, only its UI will go through lifecycle events.

Answer:

The problem is the initialization of the Youtube fragment. YouTubePlayerSupportFragment has to be extended in a class of yours and overrides some methods. You have to control the screen orientation and the onSaveInstanceState.

public class YouTubePlayerFragment extends YouTubePlayerSupportFragment {

  private YouTubePlayer mPlayer;

  public static YouTubePlayerFragment newInstance() {
    return new YouTubePlayerFragment();
  }

  @Override public void onCreate(Bundle bundle) {
    super.onCreate(bundle);

    setRetainInstance(true);
  }

  @Override
  public void initialize(String s, YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener onInitializedListener) {
    super.initialize(s, new YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener() {
      @Override public void onInitializationSuccess(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider,
      YouTubePlayer youTubePlayer, boolean b) {

        mPlayer = youTubePlayer;

        onInitializedListener.onInitializationSuccess(provider, youTubePlayer, b);
      }

      @Override public void onInitializationFailure(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider,
      YouTubeInitializationResult youTubeInitializationResult) {

        onInitializedListener.onInitializationFailure(provider, youTubeInitializationResult);
      }
    });
  }

  @Override public void onDestroyView() {
    if (mPlayer != null) {

      mPlayer.release();
    }
    super.onDestroyView();
  }

  public YouTubePlayer getPlayer() {
    return mPlayer;
  }
}
