JRiver for Android TV
« on: June 02, 2024, 01:08:51 am »

Hello

Wondering if there are any plans to make a Media Center client app for Android TV. Something where the primary use is to connect to our real Media Servers for playback only of music, photo albums, and our TV/Movie collections.

I understand that the challenge is that you dont know what codecs each TV manufacturer supports for playback. I wonder if this cant be overcome? Does android allow you to check installed codecs? Or could you have a sample of the common codecs and profiles and run a check for each file type on initial install? Then this client could essentially tell the server when it needs a transcode performed and what codec to use and what to do with subtitles.

I dont understand the technical barriers, just spitballing

JRiver for Android does run on Android TV.  You can connect to JRiver Media Center running on another machine.
