We found a lot of discussion information about the functions of app development, but different people give different advice based on their own experience. TOVP believes that in a specific environment, what everyone said may be very reasonable, but the preconditions are not clear, which can easily cause confusion to those who know it. Let’s talk to you about some basic functions of film and television app development.
Video-on-demand function of video playback
Why do you talk about the video-on-demand function of video playback in the first place? Because whether it is an entertainment film and television APP or a video-on-demand function for education, advertising, etc., it is basic to support the playback of video and audio. The user chooses to use it because the content in the APP is what he likes or needs. Therefore, a playback function in a video-on-demand solution is a must. However, there are many things to consider when playing this well. The first is the issue of compatibility. If it is used in mobile phones, the compatibility of so many mobile phones can be achieved. This requires long-term experience and market testing. Here are some basic functions of the video player, such as: fast forward, rewind, pause, search, click, screen ratio, sharpness adjustment, and so on. If these functions are very rich, if they are developed from zero, the construction period and stability will be a big obstacle. It also greatly affects the user experience, which will affect whether the film and television APP or video-on-demand APP can occupy the market faster in the process of being introduced to the market.
Member Account Management
This is more important to merchants because any product made has a commercial nature (except for public welfare). Wanting to provide better services also requires capital investment, so one of the more common ways to make money through APP is membership fees. Each user who enters the system has an account, and can directly choose different content packages and time to recharge. If it is a relatively simple system, it is directly the free and paid parts, and the time can be set by yourself. However, if it is a large system, a combination of multiple packages is required. For example, in the field of IPTV systems, there may be live high-definition, on-demand high-definition, playback packages, etc., standard definition free, single-chip purchase, and so on. It can be made into a combination of various content packages for users to choose from. Therefore, member account management is also very basic for the video-on-demand system of the film and television APP.
Through 1 and 2, a simple film and television APP or VOD System can be run. Because the profit method we assume is a membership system, advertising must be only a very small part, otherwise, it will cause great disgust for users. In the development of film and television APPs, it is necessary to start advertising, because this is preparation for the normal opening of the APP. This is advertising space, but it is not necessarily a direct advertisement. It can be some information or activities or brand display, etc., but this must have. There can also be a dedicated advertising space in the position where you enter the homepage. The purpose of these may not be for profit, but to give users a better experience and to promote the existing APP software system.
It is impossible for any APP to be completed in one step. After a period of market feedback, most of them need to be upgraded. If the video-on-demand system for film and television APP development does not have an online upgrade function, all users who have installed it before need to uninstall and reinstall. This is very inconvenient for users, so the online upgrade function is also basic.
Make it clear whether mobile phone or TV box users are the main users
In fact, many people may not have clearly thought about this problem, because the video-on-demand system of the film and television APP of Dianliang software is compatible with both mobile phones and TV boxes, which can be the same or different. This is determined according to the user habits of different terminals. Because the display of the TV box is relatively large, the remote control is generally used to operate in the order of left and right up and down, while the mobile phone is used to swipe up and down because of the relatively small screen. If it is mainly mobile phone users, the interface display is better based on user habits. If the TV box is the main one, the mobile phone can also be directly connected to the TV box, and there is no need to make a separate vertical version. Of course, if you want to give users better support, the interface of the video-on-demand system of the two terminal film and television APPs can be different. . TOVP’s video Saas includes all devices such as mobile terminals, TV boxes, web, etc.
The above are some basic functions that we think are more important in the current film and television APP. Of course, as for the basic account registration, allocation and WeChat QR code binding, these can also be realized. Here, the account allocated by the system is used by default. It can also be made that only those who have an account can enter the system. As for some other functions, it may also be very important according to different scenarios. For example, if you use channel marketing, forwarding, sharing, multi-level agency, and points are also very important. TOVP is only discussing the basic functions with you here.
