In the beginning was the need for a player.
It should be working on Android devices, be able to play different movie and still image formats, online streams and stream lists. During my search for such a player I checked several players and no one was able to do all the things I need, was too heavy, or too uncomfortable to use.
So I decided to write one.
As it is well known that the wheel and the warm water are already invented it was not needed to reinvent them again. So I started to play with ffmpeg-based project named Vitamio, (seems they also came to the idea for the wheel :-)).
During my work on it I found that in the Internet users publish a lot of TV streams. As a person who do not stay nonstop in front of my desktop/laptop computer (and not at home at all) I found that ability to watch my favorite TV channels where I can find WiFi hotspot (or even on cellphone operator’s 3G) is quite useful. So I decided to add functionality to the player to support TV Channels packages.
And it happened..
