The Media Platform Player App supports Windows Phone, Windows 8.1 and Android and shortly Xbox One. The Apptelic Player App uses a client’s HTML5 / JS website and embeds it together with our player into a single app. This allows video content providers, TV networks and streaming video companies to quickly release media apps for their streams across multiple platforms. The Player App contains an embedded ‘web view’ which displays the customer’s HTML5 web site, so it appears to the user just like a native app with its own icon/tile in the device’s apps list. The Player App can be customized for captions, ad insertion and analytics, and is fully skinnable to match the HTML5 site design. If changes to your HLS streams (on your existing HTML5 / JS website) are required in order for our player to detect and play, Apptelic will inform you of the necessary steps. On delivery, clients receive multiple app packages ready for publishing to the relevant stores (Windows Marketplace and Google Play for Android).*
The user experience is seamless, with a partner-specific app icon which, when tapped, transparently launches the built-in browser to show the video site’s home page. When a video is chosen by the user the Media Platform Player plays the video in full-screen mode and then returns the user to the browser on ending playback. This is very similar to the built-in YouTube experience on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone. The first time a user visits your website from a Windows or Android enabled device and selects a video play they are prompted to install your app which will then be used to play the HLS Video. Once installed the user doesn’t have to return to your web site to play additional videos streams; they can just open the app.
The shortly available cloud based dashboard will enable clients to:
*For additional cost we can also manage the publishing process on your behalf.
