AIR 3.0 for Smart TVs equipment & development tips

AIR 3.0 for Smart TVs equipment & development tips | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Adobe says that the Flash Platform is really suitable for a pletora of platforms and that the smart TVs are a turning-point into the framework roadmap. But if you search on the web you only find the Adobe announcements and some video on the Adobe TV site…

 

At the time I’m writing (this post will become obsolete in a while) I want to deploy the last Creeo’s app on the TV. It’s a Starling-based game but… Which smart TVs support AIR 3.0 today? (May 2012) Only the LG ones! Ok but which LGs? Moreless you have to guess, I’m not joking…
I faced those doubts/problems all my own (with some problems) so it’s time to share my little experience with the hope of helping someone.

Creating a simple OSMF video player for AIR for TV using Flash Builder

Creating a simple OSMF video player for AIR for TV using Flash Builder | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

In this article, you'll learn how to create a simple video player that streams Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) video to Internet-connected televisions, set top boxes, and other devices. Playing video content on Internet-connected devices requires the AIR for TV (A4TV) 2.5.1 or higher runtime. This article describes how to configure Flash Builder to develop and compile a simple player for A4TV using the Open Source Media Framework (OSMF).

 

The A4TV runtime requires developers use the proper AIR namespace in their application descriptor file. OSMF facilitates player development for consuming HDS content that cannot be consumed by the popular FLVPlayback or VideoDisplay components. The sample project described in this article uses:

- AIR 2.5 SDK

- Flex 3.6 SDK

- OSMF MediaPlayerSprite class
