Release History

TV Extension for Tizen SDK

    • New & Changed Features

      • Simulator:
        • Added dummy implementation of B2B APIs. There is no functionality in the implementation. The APIs are added just to avoid “undefined function” type errors in the apps using B2B APIs.

          • On TV, applications using B2B APIs include b2bapis.js with file path “$B2BAPIS/b2bapis/b2bapis.js”. But on simulator, APIs are always included and user does not need to include them. If the js file is included in the app, simulator will show an error like “$B2BAPIS/b2bapis/b2bapis.js net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND” in the console logs. User can ignore this error. The error does not have any known side effect.
        • HLS support is improved. Earlier a dummy video was played when an app tried to run HLS video. Now actual content will be played.

        • Upgraded nwjs version to 0.20.1
