Brightcove Launches SDK For Android

Brightcove has introduced an App Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android and new mobile templates for Adobe Flash Player 10.1.

The Brightcove App SDK for Android expands the delivery options available to website publishers to include Android applications. The SDK provides a collection of resources for developers who want to create native, video-rich applications that consumers can download, install and use on their Android devices.

These resources include pre-built components for playback, content discovery, and hooks into the Brightcove Media API services. In the near future, the Brightcove App SDK for Android will enable one touch sharing to popular social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

“Publishers of all kinds want to make sure their content is available regardless of device or platform and to deliver the same experience available on the desktop to mobile devices,” said David Mendels, Brightcove president and chief operating officer.

“Brightcove is committed to removing the complexity and costs associated with cross-platform, multi-device video publishing, and our expanded capabilities for delivering high quality video on Android mobile devices with support for Flash Player 10.1 and our app SDK are examples of how we are delivering on this promise.”
