NEW PRODUCTS & RELEASES

New Twonky Player Now Available on Google Play                                         

Lynx launched the new Twonky Player mobile app for Android on Google Play this month. Built with the industry leading Twonky Mobile SDK, Twonky Player allows end users to play media files stored on their mobile device or home media server - videos, music and photos - and enjoy them on their TV or other home media players. End users can also download recordings of their favorite TV shows from DTCP-IP/DLNA-enabled STBs, DVRs and NAS devices to their mobile device and watch them on the go. 

Twonky Player Adds Value to the Twonky Server Ecosystem

Lynx customers who currently provide our Twonky Server to their end users, now have another compatible media player, Twonky Player, available for end users. Having another media player in the market increases the value of Twonky Server to the end user, and by extension the value of the device it is embedded in (e.g. NAS, STB, Router, Residential Gateway).

Hot Topic

Lynx Enables Developer Community to Create Media Players Compatible with Twonky Server

At Lynx, we believe the more Twonky Server compatible media players there are available to end users, the more valuable Twonky Server is to them. Increasing the perceived value of Twonky Server to the end user, increases this same value of the device it is embedded in (e.g. NAS, STB, Router, Residential Gateway). To enable the development of more media players, that are compatible with Twonky Server, we have decided to publish the Twonky Server REST APIs

How can Developers Leverage the Published Twonky Server REST APIs?

Developers who extend an existing media player, build a mobile app player, PC application or customized web UI - and implement the Twonky Server REST APIs - can now discover Twonky Server and all of its media files, without the need for a UPnP stack. Further, these media players will be able to offer additional Twonky Server features such as media server aggregation, multi-user, Sonos, Chromecast, Fire TV and Apple TV support.

As Twonky Server is the leading media server on the market, developers who leverage our REST APIs now have a way of making their media players more attrative to end users. The APIs are published at docs.twonky.com/display/TS/
