Video ads support in Fire TV apps

We do support using video ads in a web-based Fire TV app. It should be noted that since the HTML5 Google IMA SDK is not officially supported in a Fire TV app, the preferred solution is to use our VAST parser rmp-vast. However if you are using Google Ads (Google Ad Manager, AdSense for Video) we still recommend using the IMA SDK even in a Fire TV app. The VAST parser can be selected with player setting adParser set to 'ima' or 'rmp-vast'.

TV player for Fire TV

TV app player skin

We provide an out-of-box tv-optimized player skin to help you get started with your Fire TV app. This skin defaults to a full window mode ideal for a fullscreen experience on larger displays. Other player skins can also be used in a context of a Fire TV app. The tv-optimized player skin can be enabled through the skin setting set to 'tv'. See our player skins documentation for more information.

Fire TV demo app on GitHub

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.
