LifeVibes QuickPlayer Supports Apple's Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Providing Access to More Content and High-Quality Video Experiences in all Network Conditions
EINDHOVEN, Netherlands, February 14, 2011 - NXP Software 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.
The software also ensures high-quality viewing. It supports up to
standard definition resolution content. And like previous versions of
QuickPlayer, it ensures a fast start to play back and maintains smooth
viewing with no re-buffering, dropped service or visual artifacts even during
network switches and variations in bandwidth availability.
"We're delighted to be launching the latest version of LifeVibes
QuickPlayer with a live demo in partnership with Envivio at MWC. The software
enables video service providers to open up a huge choice of extra content on
Android devices. Combined with the fastest start-up time around and viewing
that's virtually as smooth as watching on a living room TV, it offers video
service providers the best way address the booming market of Android users,"
says Peter Van de Berg, Marketing Director, NXP Software.
LifeVibes QuickPlayer allows consumers to watch online videos, and access
live and on-demand content. The software is available to service providers as
an SDK for a downloadable application. The SDK includes a reference
application ready to deploy and can also be integrated with a third-party
application UI layer.
