Player SDK for Android
The OpenTV Player SDK for Android is built from the ground up using our Portable Player Core technology. Given the complexity and fragmentation of the Android ecosystem, it's important for us to have full stack control of our Android player. This provides us with the ability to innovate quickly, fix issues effectively and be in control of our own roadmap. More importantly, it means that our Player can support a vast range of Android devices from Android 5.0 (Lollipop) to Android 9.0 (P).
Player SDK for iOS and tvOS
Player SDK for iOS and tvOS is built on top of the solid AVPlayer from Apple. With fewer concerns over ecosystem complexity, and with a solid native player on board for iOS, the need for a full stack player is less important, however our Player is built on top of AVPlayer bringing some excellent features such as:
- Thumbnail previews with WebVTT
- VAST / VPAID advertisement support
- DRM integration with the NAGRA Security Services Platform and Conax Contego
- Support for non-native subtitles
SDK for Browsers
No flash, no plugins & a frictionless user experience - our Player SDK for Browsers is a plugin-less solution for watching video in the browser. Your users will not need to download a plugin or extensions to watch the content they love & you can ensure your content is protected by using an M-DRM solution.
We've focused really hard on making our Player the easiest to integrate on the market so that you can focus on delivering a web application & content with exceptional user experience.
The video player supports playback of DASH-IF & the ability to play encrypted content by using the DRMs packaged within the browser. Our Player comes pre-integrated with the NAGRA Security Services Platform & Conax Contego.
