NXP Software (http://www.software.nxp.com) is demonstrating an upgrade of QuickPlayer at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011 in cooperation with Envivio.
This new version allows Android-based devices to play content encoded for Apple’s adaptive HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol. Fully compatible with major video service providers, it lets Android users access the extensive content available within the Apple ecosystem, says Peter Van de Berg, marketing director, NXP Software.
The software also ensures high-quality viewing, he adds. It supports up to standard definition resolution content.
LifeVibes QuickPlayer allows consumers to watch online videos, and access live and on-demand content. The software is available to service providers as a software development kit (SDK) for a downloadable application. The SDK includes a reference application ready to deploy and can also be integrated with a third-party application user interface layer.
