    Show An Error Message When A Video Fails to Load in React Native

    react-nativeReact Native

    In this lesson we'll show to use the onError callback from react-native-video. We'll show how to use a separate <View/> that'll cover the video and render an error icon from react-native-vector-icons only if there is an error present.

    Finally we'll learn how to setup a handleError function that'll take the error and error code off the video meta. This'll let us check against various error codes and give back a custom error message!
