where??

in kalturaCommon.grdle file right?

// Common values for Kaltura Player SDK
def buildConfig = [
version: ‘2.6.19’,

    compileSdkVersion: 24,
    buildToolsVersion: '24.0.0',
    minSdkVersion: 16,
    targetSdkVersion: 24

]

// Append short commit hash to dev builds, i.e. "dev.a1b2c3d"
if (buildConfig.version == ‘dev’) {
def cmd = "git rev-parse --short HEAD"
def proc = cmd.execute()
def commit = proc.text.trim()
buildConfig.version = ‘dev.’ + commit
}

ext.kaltura = buildConfig

I am not having skype…

Can we discuss here only… if possible…

where to change version no, or Do I need to download new SDK.

#8

you have to check out that branch
release/2.6.19

#9

Hi,

I run with 2.6.19 version, but same only blue thumbnail image is showing on TV.

What could be the problem Sir?

#10

i am not sure how you do it

if you just download the SDK
and in Studio you open the internal folder KalturaDemos

and then you run the CCPlayerDemo

what is the receiver ID you use in the app?

use this :
276999A7

you connect
load player
and cast

after this works you can use your config parameters
and also change the logo

Hi regarding your comment:
“with your app id, it casted to TV.
Thanks…
how can I create this app Id for my app?”

Answer:

Our CC solution only works with this customed APP ID
This is the only way to cast content via the SDK.

PS.
We already have the next generation SDK SDK V3 you can investigate it from github
