Introduction

Muvi Playout gives a Live TV like experience to your end-users. Your users can watch the content that is scheduled in different time slots in various channels. You can create different channels and you can also create and add content to these channels in different time slots. The content added to the Playout will be played automatically in different channels in different timings just like linear TV. You can also embed the different channels of the Playout to any website.

Note:

  • Currently, we do not support Playout for mobile browsers and mobile apps.
  • In the Safari browser, Playout starts in mute mode. Users need to increase the volume of their device manually to watch the content seamlessly.
