support Fire TV platform while still advertising that

We support Widevine DRM with DASH streaming on Fire TV. A basic Web Apps for Fire TV however does not allow for DRM support. We need to build a native Android app to display a WebView (a.k.a. hybrid app) - this is typically done by using a hybrid framework like Cordova or by creating a WebView project with Android Studio. This hybrid approach on Fire TV allows to provide capabilities that are not possible in a basic web app, due to the security boundary between the browser and the device APIs. This also enables DRM support in Amazon WebView (AWV) and better performance for video playback.
Please follow our guide to building Android TV apps with Cordova for guidance.
We have released a demo app for using Radiant Media Player in a web app for Fire TV. This demo app is available on GitHub.
