SignagePlayer is not fully supported on Android TVs
« on: December 18, 2015, 08:24:38 AM »
It's possible use almost all features on my Sonny Android TV (Model W805C), but there's a problem showing MP4 videos. I found that there's no support by the Adobe Air on Android TVs, but in the new beta version (labs.adobe.com/downloads/air.html) will be supported on Android TVs.

I installed this apk in that was downloaded from the link above, and now is playing all the videos. Is there any forecast about updating the runtime shipped in the SignagePlayer?

I could fix it, downloading the Adobe Air SDK (labs.adobe.com/downloads/air.html), unzip the AIR APK and installed on android. Now it's working fine!

The old version of the Adobe Air isn't supported in Android TV, but the new version is working.

You guys should think to update the runtime that is package in yours APK.
