To set up react native video for our react native project we first need to install it from npm. We'll type npm install react-native-video --save.
Once that is complete, we'll also need to link up the native pieces of the code. We can use that using the react-native CLI and type link, which'll now automatically link up all the Android code and all the OIS code that we need for react native video to work.
Now that we have it linked we can go ahead and import it and use it like any other react native component. We type importVideo from react-native-video and use it as a video component.
