The service sends video from websites to TVs, blu-ray players, and other player devices via ordinary HTTP and javascript or Flash. The user places a simple anchor tag including a properly formatted URL within a page's HTML code. When the user clicks the link, a call to the service identifies devices under the same public IP address and pushes the linked video content to the devices. If a device is powered down at the time, the send action is queued and retried later. Methods support discovering suitable devices in the user's network, identifying supported video URLs, bidirectional communication between devices and the service, and management of messages queued to be sent to a device.
