WP Smart TV

Description

Start your own Smart TV channel with Chromecast, Airplay, Roku Direct Publisher and Amazon Fire App Builder support.

Includes:

  • HTML5 video player with HLS, MP4 support as well as VAST tag support
  • Roku Direct Publisher Feed support (JSON)
  • Amazon Fire App Builder support
  • Shortcodes to integrate with existing sites

This plugin utilizes custom post types to manage your video content. We include Movie, Shortform Video & Episodic post types to help you easily add new content to your IPTV system.

Each video contains metadata for trick play files (BIF, Roku DPF support only!) and Closed Captions with multiple translations.

Shortcodes are also provided to embed content in regular posts & pages.

Roku Direct Publish Feeds allow you to send data to Roku without the expense of building your own app. For more information please see this article – Roku Direct Publisher Feeds.

Each minor revision will include new features. Get our mailing list to stay up-to-date on the new features.

FAQ

Does this work with YouTube?

NO! YouTube does not allow you access to the data URLs required (HLS or MP4).

Does this work with Vimeo?

YES! If you have a Vimeo Pro account, you can use your HLS and MP4 links. (Vimeo > Video > Settings > Video File).

Does it support WebVTT & SRT for Closed Caption support?

YES! However SRT support only works on Roku. We suggest using WebVTT as it works on both Roku and HTML5. You can convert SRT to VTT files quite easily online.

Does it support “Trick Play” files?

Yes, but only on Roku for now. We will expand to other platforms soon!
