liveCardView.startVideo();
liveCardView.stopVideo();
liveCardView.setCardBackgroundColor(R.color.primary);
liveCardView.setTitleText(getString(R.string.title));
liveCardView.setTextColor(R.color.white);
  • By creating a new instance and passing in a style:
LiveCardView liveCardView = new LiveCardView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs);
<style name="LiveCardStyle">
    <item name="live_background_color">@color/primary</item>
    <item name="live_text_color">@color/white</item>
