Crossword clues for playon


PlayOn is a streaming media brand and software suite that enables users to view and record videos from numerous online content providers. The main PlayOn application is Windows-based software that acts as a streaming dashboard and hub on the PC. It provides access to approximately 100 streaming websites, which are organized as channels. Users browse through or search the video content found in those channels, watch the videos on the PC, cast the videos to a TV via a streaming device or gaming console, or record the videos to watch later on most media devices. The recording feature acts as a DVR for streaming videos, creating an MPEG-4 file which can be transferred to supported media devices.

PlayOn includes native companion applications for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Chromecast, XBMC and Roku. The recording functionality inserts chapter marks at the locations of advertisements, allowing users to automatically skip commercials when watching via any of the native companion applications, directly in the PlayOn player on a PC, or via a variety of other DLNA-compliant media devices, such as Xbox.

PlayOn also organizes local media from the PC into a Media Library dashboard, which can be streamed or cast to viewing devices.
