webOS: Are you ready to rise to the challenge?

As we recently talked about the challenges of bringing your video playback to Tizen, it's time to tackle the second largest smart TV platform in the world: WebOS. It's wise to consider webOS, but the pitfalls around the different legacy versions may even be larger than with Tizen OS. It takes specific knowhow to deliver a seamless video experience on webOS platforms, supporting DRM, subtitles, SSAI/CSAI, et cetera. But with a little guidance you can reach an immense audience. Let's deep-dive into the development challenges of webOS. 

In this webinar, THEO's CTO and Co-Founder Pieter-Jan Speelmans and VP of Engineering Michel Roofthooft walk you through the process of integrating your video services with LG webOS, and how we at THEO Technologies tackle specific webOS problems. At the end of the webinar there will be a Q&A session.

Key Takeaways:

  • Achieve a smooth playback experience on all webOS devices;
  • Overcome common challenges with the different webOS versions (content protection, regular playback etc);
  • How to monetize your content on webOS.

This webinar also includes the Q&A session from the Live session.
