Create Neumorphism Video Player using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.webp

Neumorphism design, a rising trend in UI design, brings a fresh perspective to user interfaces with its soft shadows and subtle highlights. This design approach, often termed Soft UI, aims to replicate the tactile feel of physical objects within digital interfaces. In this tutorial, we will explore how to leverage HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to craft a sleek HTML5 video player adorned with Neumorphism design elements. Through step-by-step instructions, you'll learn how to create an engaging and visually appealing video player that seamlessly integrates modern design aesthetics with functional interactivity. Let's dive in and transform your web development skills with this innovative approach to video player design.

Source Code

Step 1 (HTML Code):

Start by creating the basic HTML structure for the video player. This includes elements such as <video> for embedding the video, controls for play/pause, volume, progress bar, etc.


Here's a breakdown of the different sections:


1. Document Type Declaration: <!DOCTYPE html> declares the document type and version of HTML being used, which is HTML5 in this case.


2. HTML Structure: The <html> element marks the beginning and end of the HTML document. The lang attribute specifies the language of the document, which is set to English (en).


3. Head Section: Contains metadata and links to external resources. Here's what's included:


  • Character Encoding: <meta charset="UTF-8"> specifies the character encoding for the document as UTF-8, which supports a wide range of characters.
  • Compatibility Meta Tag: <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> ensures that the webpage renders in the highest mode available in Internet Explorer.
  • Viewport Meta Tag: <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> sets the viewport width to the device width and initial zoom level to 1.0, ensuring proper rendering on various devices.
  • Title: <title>Neumorphism Video Player</title> sets the title of the webpage.
  • External CSS: Two external CSS files are linked using <link> tags. One is for Bootstrap, a popular CSS framework, and the other is for Font Awesome, a library of icons. Additionally, a local CSS file styles.css is linked for custom styles.

4. Body Section: Contains the visible content of the webpage.


  • Div with Class "box": Contains the main content of the webpage. It has a class of "text-center" for center alignment and a dir attribute set to "ltr" (left-to-right directionality).
  • Heading: <h4 class="display-2 text-center main">Neu player</h4> displays a heading with the text "Neu player". It has classes for styling purposes.
  • Video Player: The main part of the webpage is a video player contained within a <div> element with class "neo-video-player" and id "popout-video-player". It includes various controls such as a play button, volume control, progress bar, download button, playback speed control, and fullscreen button. The actual video element <video> is embedded with a source pointing to an MP4 video file hosted on w3schools.com.

5. Scripts: JavaScript files are included for functionality. Two external scripts are linked using <script> tags. One is jQuery, a JavaScript library, and the other is a local script file script.js.

Step 2 (CSS Code):

Utilize CSS to apply Neumorphism design principles to the video player elements. This involves adding soft shadows, highlights, and gradients to create a three-dimensional effect.


let's break down the CSS code step by step:


1. Body Styles:


  • Sets the background color of the body to a light grayish-blue (#eff0f4).
  • Sets the text color to a dark gray (#575757).

2. .box Styles:


  • Defines a CSS class called ".box".
  • Sets the maximum width of the box to 600 pixels.
  • Centers the box horizontally using the auto margin property.

3. Link Styles:


  • Sets the color of all links to the same dark gray as the body text.
  • Defines a hover effect for links: changes the color to a shade of orange (#FD9644) and removes the default underline text decoration.

4. .main Styles:


  • Defines a CSS class called ".main".
  • Sets the text color to a bright orange (#FD9644).
  • Sets the opacity of the text to 0.2 (20% visibility).
  • Sets the font weight to 900 (bold).
  • Moves the text upwards by 30 pixels (negative margin) to overlap with the previous element.

5. .neo-video-player Styles:


  • Defines a CSS class called ".neo-video-player" for styling video player elements.

Step 3 (JavaScript Code):

Enhance the video player with JavaScript to make it interactive and functional. This includes implementing features like autoplay, fullscreen mode, custom controls, and responsiveness.


Let's break down the code step by step:


1. Initialization: The code iterates over all elements with the class name "neo-video-player" using jQuery's each() function. Inside the loop, it sets up various variables to reference different elements within each video player.


2. Setting Download Link: It sets up a download link for the video by extracting the video source URL and assigning it to the href attribute of an element with the ID "download-video".


3. Defining Functions:


  • playVideo(): Toggles between playing and pausing the video when called.
  • updateVolume(x, vol): Updates the volume of the video based on the mouse position or specified volume value.
  • changeSpeed(): Changes the playback speed of the video.
  • launchFullscreen(): Requests the browser to enter fullscreen mode when called.
  • time_format(seconds): Formats the time in seconds into minutes and seconds.
  • startBuffer(): Tracks the buffer progress of the video.
  • updatebar(x): Updates the progress bar of the video.

4. Event Handlers:


  • Various event handlers are set up to handle interactions with different controls of the video player such as play/pause button clicks, volume control, fast forward button, full-screen mode, and progress bar seeking.

5. Video Events Handling:


  • Event handlers are set up to update the current time and duration of the video, and to control the display of controls based on user interactions and video playback state.

6. Video Controls Interaction:


  • The code manages the interaction of different video controls such as play/pause button, volume control, full-screen mode, and progress bar seeking, ensuring proper functionality and user experience.
$(".neo-video-player").each(function() {
  // Video
  var $video_container = $(this);
  var $video = $(this).find("#video-element");

  // set download link
  $('#download-video').attr('href', $('#video-element source').attr('src'));
  
  // Video Controls
  var $video_controls = $(this).find(".video-control-part");
