Edit Widget

The Edit Widget can used to re-edit the recording or import already in Hippo Video. Below is a simple implementation of the Edit Widget.

import { initialize, EditWidget } from "@hippovideo/video-sdk";
import "@hippovideo/video-sdk/app/hv_recorder.css"; // Importing the styling required

let initializeOptions = {

const onVideoSdkInitialize = (success, error) => {
* error will be undefined in case of successfull initialization
* success will be undefined in case there is any error
* */
if (success) {

let editWidgetConfig = {
editor_config: {

EditWidget.create(success.key, editWidgetConfig)
.then((editor) => {

editor.on("editor_loaded", () => {'Editor Loaded : ', data);
.catch((error) => {
//Error details if there is an error during widget creation

if (error) {
* Will contain the error details when there is an error in sdk initialization

initialize(initializeOptions, onVideoSdkInitialize);

HIPPO_VIDEO_ASSET_ID is passed in record_details event as asset_id for RecorderWidget. For ImportWidget, its passed in import_complete event as asset_id, this has to be passed as HIPPO_VIDEO_ASSET_ID here.

Editor methods are found in Editor section. EditWidget events are found in Events and Data section.
