TV streaming with VIRTUALSAT for Android, Windows, and later MacOS X, Linux and IOSFiled under: News;
Zattoo was once the only TV-streaming service in Germany, you could really use. However, increased tremendously in my view, the development of Zattoo, it is still a rather sluggish website instead of the previously required client program and also at the station selection is happening very little.Zattoo shines though in Switzerland next ARD and ZDF from a number of private German channels, but not just in Germany and also Android Zattoo is now completely ignored. VIRTUALSAT now comes with a new competitor on the market that offers as opposed to watch online for almost a full program. VIRTUALSAT Although unlike Zattoo generally paid for, but it has now been a client for Windows and Android on offer. Mac OS, Linux, and IOS will later follow.
The Android app you can install from the current market. Besides the VIRTUALSAT app it still needs the Vitamino multimedia framework, this is not installed on the Android WEBMARKET but let's refer you when you first start the app VIRTUALSAT to the correct version of the framework. The framework itself, I knew not yet, it is able to provide various codecs and network protocols that are needed by just VIRTUALSAT.
Not need many words, I just made a short video on the Android app. So far the app is unfortunately quite plain, I do not have such a simple EPG of me says what currently is running on which station, but I suspect that will come in course of development. You can can the app in the beta phase and use for free without an account of how long this is going, unfortunately we do not get on the homepage in the service experience.
Besides the Android app is currently also have a Windows client. For this you need an account with VIRTUALSAT generally, is to have depending on the booked duration for at least € 3.50. Who just wants to get a whiff in VIRTUALSAT times, which can however specify a valid test account for 3 days. I could get the client for me under Windows XP but not for running, as he correctly installed and updated. NET Framework can not find partout wanted, so I tie at this point a YouTube video of one more screenshots VIRTUALSAT VIRTUALSAT to player found on the homepage.
For myself I
VIRTUALSAT could also bring in very little experience. The company is based in Austria and is probably quite young. The above linked YouTube video has just a few hundred views, and even the Twitter-or Facebook accounts have only a few followers. However, it appears that the ambitions of the service not to interfere. In addition to the clients for Windows and Android, it will later also clients for Mac OS X, just give iOS and even Linux. In addition, should soon be able to buy a TV box, which can be used VIRTUALSAT watch on TV.
Thus, the service would
For a few euros a month for a real alternative to expensive cable-TV provider. However, I am still not clear how it all unwinds VIRTUALSAT law. Zattoo bites but for years because the teeth from more than ARD, ZDF and a few others can be streamed over the Internet. I'm definitely curious how this unfolds times and trying times, the Linux version to get my hands on.
