Vewd TV Apps, (For SONY and other TVs)

Recommended Posts

I saw Opera TV today on my TVs apps, and I know it's a long shot, but I think a wide enough range of TVs use the Opera TV apps and it might be beneficial to have a dedicated app for the TV to browse media in, instead of an ever failing DLNA link which keeps dropping in and out.

 

currently DLNA between my sony kd-55x8500b, and windows 7 PC Media Browser Server, keeps dropping out. it annoys me, and I think if an app can connect (android app never fails), it would be better.

 

any ideas?

 

Thanks

We'd be happy to help a new developer create an app for that platform.

 

Of note, however, Sony has moved to the Android TV platform as of this year so we will be there.

Shortly after an interested developer joins the community and decides to make one would be my guess.  If the tvs support dlna playback you may wish to try that.

There's nothing immediate, but in the near future it could be very realistic.

I would be interested in an app for OperaTV also.  Seems that it would solve a lot not only for those of us with older Sony TV's, but the Tivo crowd as well (of which I am shortly joining :-))

well good news, the new emby theater web app runs almost perfectly in the opera tv emulator, so that's very promising.

I requested this in another thread but I thought I'd put it where it belongs. Consider me a +1 to this feature request. I'd love to dump my Roku and just use my Blu-ray player for all my media needs.

The new emby theater runs almost perfectly in the opera TV emulator so at some point we'll look at packaging it into an app

We are working on it and you guys can actually test it now.

 

  • Open the Opera TV store on your device and search for the app "UrlLoader".
  • Install it
  • Navigate to "My Apps" and run the UrlLoader app
  • Enter "http://tv.emby.media" and hit "Go"

Hey
I've tried too... Url Loader doesn't exist...
I'm trying to pair my TV with my account but i don't see the icon on the Opera TV store.
I've tried to install Opera TV Emulator extension on my Opera TV Browser but i can't...
What can i do ?
Hummm... Whoishostingthis.com says i'm on iPad Lol

 

Bad news : My TV store is the Foxxum App Store, not the Opera TV Store. HiSense TVs are running on Opera-based platform, not on Opera TV... :(
