We support using Radiant Media Player in a web-based Fire TV app (Fire OS 5+). Amazon documentation for building Web Apps for Fire TV can be found here.
Two options are available to do so:
|MP4 progressive download|
|HTML5 video ads (1)|
|VOD & Live streaming|
|Autoplay (with audio) support|
|Dedicated TV skin|
|Multi-languages closed captions and audio|
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 (DFP, AdSense for Video, AdX) 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'.
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.
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.
