The default behaviour for the Applicaster video player is that it will launch full screen landscape when selecting any content to play.
The Inline Player plugin allows the player to instead appear in a screen of content. The player can still be made full screen or closed back to inline mode by the user rotating their device.
The inline player also supports Hooks in the same way as the normal play. This enables payment gateways to be inserted before an item can be played, or advertisements etc.

Any component or group component can be used as the content source for the inline the player.
The player auto-plays when the screen is launched with the first item in the feed assigned to the screen.
