android – NoSuchMethodError for VideoView.setOnPreparedListener()

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I am having trouble with Proguard and my custom VideoView for my app. It seems as though obfuscating my code causes issues with my VideoView. Whenever I try to set the OnPreparedListener for the video, my app crashes. See:

11-13 15:54:45.881  19428-19428/com.<REDACTED> E/AndroidRuntime﹕ FATAL EXCEPTION: main

I have tried adding the below lines to the Proguard file, but they don’t help.

-keep class com.<REDACTED>.ui.module.MHVideoPlayerModule { *; }
-keep class android.widget.VideoView { *; }

EDIT: Here is the proguard-project.txt file:

# and specify the fully qualified class name to the JavaScript interface

How to&Answers:

It appears you are also providing a custom android.media.MediaPlayer and/or android.media.MediaPlayer.OnPreparedListener implementation:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: No virtual method setOnPreparedListener(Landroid/media/MediaPlayer$e;)V in class Landroid/widget/VideoView; or its super classes (declaration of ‘android.widget.VideoView’ appears in /system/framework/framework.jar:classes2.dex)

setOnPreparedListener — The method you are calling

(L — The smali prefix for Objects

android/media/MediaPlayer$e — The actual type name you are trying to pass in to the method. This is the problem. The inner class type OnPreparedListener is getting obfuscated. It should be android/media/MediaPlayer$OnPreparedListener

android/widget/VideoView the class that is attempting to host this method signature.

Do you have a custom MediaPlayer or MediaPlayer.OnPreparedListener that uses the original package names? If so, you also need to exclude those from Proguard. Something like:

-keep class android.media.** { *; }


just check it out by inserting below line in your “progaurd-project.txt” file

-keep class android.widget.** { *; }
