FireTVService com.connectsdk.service.FireTVService

FireTVService provides capabilities for FireTV devices. FireTVService acts as a layer on top of Fling SDK, and requires the Fling SDK library to function. FireTVService provides the following functionality:

  • Media playback

  • Media control

Using Connect SDK for discovery/control of FireTV devices will result in your app complying with the Fling SDK terms of service.

Inherited Methods

void connect ()

Will attempt to connect to the DeviceService. The failure/success will be reported back to the DeviceServiceListener. If the connection attempt reveals that pairing is required, the DeviceServiceListener will also be notified in that event.

void disconnect ()

Will attempt to disconnect from the DeviceService. The failure/success will be reported back to the DeviceServiceListener.

boolean isConnected ()

Whether the DeviceService is currently connected

boolean isConnectable ()
void cancelPairing ()

Explicitly cancels pairing in services that require pairing. In some services, this will hide a prompt that is displaying on the device.

void sendPairingKey (String pairingKey)

Will attempt to pair with the DeviceService with the provided pairingData. The failure/success will be reported back to the DeviceServiceListener.

Parameters:
  • pairingKey –

    Data to be used for pairing. The type of this parameter will vary depending on what type of pairing is required, but is likely to be a string (pin code, pairing key, etc).
