AC Mobile now here?

Postby Bassam » September 27th, 2011, 1:27 pm

So I may have some good news for everyone who wanted AC Mobile! A member Vulk brought to our attention that SkyFire web browser supports AC videos...

So I tested it on my Iphone & Steph's Android and it does in fact work. So this means most Android tables/phones should play AC videos! We tried to play a HD video but it didn't work out so well. So it will be best to just play Standard quality videos.

Skyfire on the Iphone costs $2.99 & Android users can try it out for free. This will only work for Live members as Skyfire will not stream the commercials needed to be played for basic members. We may work something out in the future to allow a few videos to play without ads!

What we need from all of you is feedback! We tested it & it does work but it would be great if anyone who has an Iphone/Ipad or Android to test it out as well. It will not play the video in the web page, it will instead give you a tool bar on the bottom. Then you would click on video in the tools bar on the bottom, once you are on the actual video page. Silverlight must be your default player or it will not work!

Please give us feedback everyone!

i tried to play video using my iPhone but it took me to the silverlight install website and it seems that silverlight can't be downloaded onto iphone from there so it cant play AC videos. How did you get it to play?

elyas1, are you using the app called skyfire? Its a browser and as I explained it shows you a tool bar at the bottom with a video button, on the iphone you just have to tap the small round tab at the bottom. This will pull up the bar and you can click on video. It may take some time to analyze the video at first though.

Hey Bassam which Skyfire is the one you tried? I searched Skyfire in the app store today and found two things. One was called Skyfire Web Browser and the other called Skyfire VideoQ. I'm not sure which one to get and try.

Sorry about the minor confusion there, its the web browser! Will cost $3.99 though sadly no demo version but it does work.

It's alright and by the way its $2.99 not $3.99. I got a video to work on my Iphone4 but my only complaint is that you can't make the video go full screen. Whatever the size the video is on the windows media player stays at that size and you can't change it.

What did you watch? I checked out Kiba and K-On & Bleach they seemed to take the full screen, only thing was that it showed the seek bar of silverlight player... So if that is what you mean then yes sadly it has limitations but I think this is a great start if you ask me...

The install button is normal, don't worry about that. Have you tried to refresh the page & what video are you trying out?

when using your phone, change your video player on AC to WMP. that should probably be the reason. We have that new player built from silverlight.

hmm, think you got confused on this keke... WMP will not work with sklyfire browser for Iphone & Android. Silverlight player it self will not even open up on either OS but its able to read the code and play the video...

thejthar, did you ever get any off sync videos? Seems to happen to me a lot for some reason, but sometimes its completely fine!

BlackBerry? Doubt it, you would have to search the app market there and see if you can find something!

Also thanks for the input Osmar! Good to see its working for people despite it being off sync from time to time for me =(
