No, we don’t reinstall the application everyday but we are testing your software if its possible that we can implement your software to our system.
We are a cable tv service provider and we just started exploring progtv. We think that its a nice software and we are also thinking of buying the software if it fits to our requirement.
We have android boxes and smart tv boxes deployed on our clients. We only tell them to download the app to view our multicast streams.
What we want is:
1. On applications start up it will send a notification of the type of device being used. This is for us to identify the screen profile or video resolution.
Say for example:
If its from a small screen device it will send a playlist:
For videos that are displayed on big screen tv:
2. The information can be retrieved from dhcp option where the default-site location is inserted, or from a static default playlist embedded in the application, or from a network broadcast.
A network broadcast is: it will send a playlist request to 255.255.255.255:1234 and when the server that is listening from broadcast recieves the message containing the device type and the request, it will send the corresponding playlist.
A default static playlist could be (if possible):
Or http://<network gateway ip>/playlist.m3u
Our system has two different playlist:
Playlist 1 contains low resolution
Playlist 2 contains high resolution
The goal is:
The playlist should be automatically loaded to the app on application startup without the client configuring the playlist link.
When the client had finished installing the app. The application will automatically detect and download the type of playlist that it needs.
By the way, same applies to the EPG it should have a default EPG location or dynamically retreived from a server.
Also, we have concerns with the videos. We can’t set the default aspect ratio to free. All the videos has to be manually changed to free. Is there a way we can include the aspect ratio, channel number and channel name in the m3u playlist?
Thanks so much.
Hope you can support us on this one.
