I am not a developer as such, but I am trying to direct my developer team as to my requirements. I hope you can advise me on my options for what I wish to achieve with Amazon Fire TV.
We have a mobile app with video content that we want users to be able to Cast to Amazon Fire TV. I believe amazon TV supports the DIAL PROTOCOL. It can be used on a mobile app to open an app on amazon TV to stream. What are our options here?
1. (PREFERRED) can we create a simple receiver app on amazon fire TV and allow the user to play and control content from their mobile phone app? So the TV will only show the playing content not any menus or lists of content.
2. Or will a full app containing all our content need to be made and the Dial Protocol can be used to find and open the app but then the TV remote is required to play and browse content.
Your advice on this is much appreciated.
