Even though you could use any web browser on an Android device to playback your channel, we recommend using our Android app instead. You can get this for free in the Google Play Store. If you don't have the Google Play Store available on your device, you can directly download and install our app onto the device.
Another drawback of using a regular web browser, is that it often cannot automatically start video playback. This is done to prevent unexpected data consumption on mobile smartphones. Our app does not have this limitation.
For set top boxes (or media players) running Android 10 (Q) or higher you have to make sure they run Android and not AndroidTV.
As of AndroidTV version 10 (Q) it is no longer possible to grant our app permissions to auto start when the device is turned on. For most TV's (that run AndroidTV) this is no problem since these usually offer a way to choose a source at startup including an Android app. But since there are set top boxes available with AndroidTV instead of Android that do not have this special feature missing the auto start can be an unexpected consequence. So please make sure your set top box runs Android and not AndroidTV when the version is 10 or higher.

The direct download method has a big drawback: you won't receive any app updates. So you should always use the Play Store if possible!
The app will show the channel full screen and it will hide the back/home/application list buttons. By touching the screen or moving the mouse (depending on the type of device you use) these buttons will reappear. If you don't use them they will automatically hide after a few seconds.
The Playr app will start automatically when the player is turned on. In rare cases this automatic start will, however, not work properly. When you encounter this please let us know and use the following workaround:
The Autostart and StaY! app will cause the Playr app to start whenever the player is turned on.
