The service provides capabilities to share information about video programs playing on a display to other devices and system management resources. It aims to allow coordination among devices by indicating exactly what program is playing and how much has elapsed from the beginning on any specific TV or video display. Applications can then coordinate or offset displays on other devices. Another service provides keyword content analysis of television programming that plays on a device.
API methods support submitting the UUID (universally unique identifier) for a set top box (STB) or connected TV to retrieve the program identifier and offset in seconds from the beginning for the show playing on the device. Methods for the content analysis API include retrieval of words contained within a television program playing on a specific display.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
