Hello, I am wondering if someone could offer a few pointers on developing an on-demand video app for Fire TV. For example, is it possible to use our videos from YouTube or Vimeo like we would in an Android phone/tablet app? If not, what kind of code would I use to include .mp4 videos that actually play on the FireTV device? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Where do I place this code in the context of a FireTV app being developed in Eclipse? The Amazon FireTV SDK templates do not show any examples for a simple on demand video app. I would like to start with one video and then add more. How can I do this? Any help is appreciated.
VideoView works with http url mVideoView.setVideoURI(uri); There is no Video Player specific API exposed for Fire TV, that's why there is no specific sample provided with SDK add ons. The standard Android APIs related to video would work on Fire TV. Please reach us if you face issues or difficulties implementing videos in your Fire TV us. Thanks.
