The description of Ace Stream for Android TV
Discover a new level of high-quality multimedia space in the Internet with the Ace Stream Media.
Ace Stream Media is a multi functional multimedia application with the following features:
- Full-featured multimedia player and media server, with support for P2P data storage and transfer protocols, with convenient content cataloging and the ability to use local and external databases, with presets and plugins, user settings and recommendations, with filters and equalizer, and many other features
- Playback of any video and audio files, including MKV, MP4, AVI, MOV, Ogg, FLAC, TS, M2TS, Wv and AAC, as well as playback of network streams that are broadcasted via the Ace Stream, BitTorrent, HTTP(S) protocol, RTMP, FTP, etc. All codecs are included, without the need for separate downloads. Subtitles, teletext and closed captions are supported.
- Watching online huge number of broadcasts (TV channels, sports and cybersport broadcasts, user-generated channels, movies, cartoons, etc.), which are broadcasted in P2P networks, with a level of audiovisual quality and stream stability, in many ways surpassing all existing broadcasts in Internet, which are broadcasted using standard technologies (unicast).
- Play torrents online with single click without waiting for content download
- Listen to high quality radio and music online, in lossless formats
- Watch content on remote devices (Apple TV, Chromecast etc.) over such communication protocols as AirPlay, Google Cast and others
Note: In this release the default output format in settings is set to "auto", which means that the stream is transcoded when playing video in MKV container with AC3 codec on devices and players with no support for this audio codec (Apple TV, Chromecast etc.). This leads to considerable delays when starting playback and increases response when seeking (especially on low-powered devices). Therefore, if your remote device or player supports AC3 audio codec, then you can go to settings and switch the output format to something more convenient.
Important! To maximize the comfort and stability of the broadcast, when playing content from P2P networks (BitTorrent / Ace Stream) on a remote device, use Ace Cast communication. To use Ace Cast it is necessary that the Ace Stream application is installed on the device from which the broadcast will be transmitted, as well as on the device on which the broadcast will be played.
