A look at Android 4.2 wireless display mirroring through Miracast


Tuesday 30th of October 2012 / androidauthority.com
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean has been officially announced, and along with this update comes a host of new features and functionalities. One of these is the wireless display mirroring functionality that enables Android users to wirelessly push their handsets’ videos onto compatible devices, such as TV sets, tablets and other devices.You might say that this is not exactly a new technology, as similar features are present in older handsets. Take for instance DLNA-enabled smartphones and TV sets. The Digital Living Network Alliance standard offers sharing of content across devices. Apple also has its own AirPlay technology.But the inherent advantage of Android’s more open nature is that with wireless display mirroring as a standard, more brands and manufacturers will adopt the technology. This means that we can expect to enjoy display mirroring on more devices in the future.But how does this technology work exactly? It uses a wireless-syncing technology called Miracast (which sounds like “mirror cast” to me).This technology is a standard created by the Wi-Fi alliance,

A Closer Look: Google TV and YouTube Integration - Android Authority


Tuesday 13th of November 2012 / androidauthority.com
Earlier today we reported that the latest YouTube app update¬†allowed you to share and control YouTube videos on your Google TV directly from your favorite Android smartphone or tablet. Not only is this insanely fun, this is the start of something big. Remember last summer when the Nexus Q launched? Almost immediately the Android and Google TV community collectively wanted these features to come together to form something truly amazing. We wanted to embrace Google’s vision of being open. We wanted to take our content with us, anywhere. Thanks to the latest round of Google TV and Android app updates for YouTube, today is the first step towards that vision.How does it all work? It’s actually quite simple. The functionality works automatically. All you need to do is have your phone or tablet on the same WiFi network as your Google TV device and the devices pair themselves for you. After you’ve done that, launch the YouTube app on your Android device and find a video you wish to play on the big screen. Just tap the TV-shaped icon up top, near the Share button and you

Webcam not working Android TV Box


Saturday 11th of August 2012 / androidforums.com
Hi All!I have recently purchased a generic Chinese Android TV Box. Details below. Model HXSTB Android TV Box X2 Series Rev. ARunning Android 2.3.5Kernel version 2.6.35.7Build Number 20120612.174413Cortex A9 1GHzIt works well except I cannot get a USB webcam to work (which is one of the reasons I bought it!). I have tried factory restore twice and still nothing. It does not recognize the camera on the system or through Skype. I assume it has something to do with the 'Camera' app not working. When I try and open the 'Camera' app it comes up with the error below:process com.android.camera not workingDoes anyone have any ideas? Does anyone know how to update Android or the camera app on this TV box?Thanks

Android Forums - View Single Post - Android Tv Box Flexiview FV-1


Tuesday 26th of July 2011 / androidforums.com
Hello. I'm currently a user of the Logitech Revue Google TV box. I was reading all the threads here about the new android 2.2 box - thus I registered on this forum so I could get some comparison feedback between the new android 2.2 box and the official Google TV appliances. First off let me state that I don't own a computer - so I only use the Google TV to access the internet, stream videos online, email, instant messenger, read online newspapers etc. As such the web browser performance is important to me. I haven't really read any posts about how well the android 2.2 box works for browsing the internet? streaming online videos? Does it use a Chrome browser and if so what version of Chrome does it use? Google TV has some bugs and web browsing isn't the greatest (a bit slow, occasional freeze ups, Flash shockwave crashes, etc) - but overall it's not too bad for what I use it for. Everyone is waiting and hoping that when Google TV gets the big upgrade to android 3.1 that things will be greatly improved. We'll see. By the way can you watch Hulu with the android 2.2 box (without any work

Guys I'm looking at switching from iPhone and iTunes to a HTC One but I have a lot of questions I'm hoping you guys can help me with1) how do I get my iTunes bought music, movies and TV shows to Android? Does it also do it in the cloud? I listen to my music in the cloud over AppleTV also some TV shows and renting over AppleTV how does this work with Android? Do I need to buy another device for this? And how does music play back sound compared to AppleTV?2) What is Android comparable iTunes how does this work in Canada? I have no real clue? Is it google play?

Motorola Assist, How does Drive mode work?


Thursday 01st of May 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I had always figured Assists drive mode worked by recognizing a constant speed above some limit, but apparently that is not the case. I sat down in my car the other day, turned it on and waited for a roommate to come out and join me. I placed my phone in the cupholder as usual and waited. Maybe 15-30 seconds later, I look at my phone and it is in driving mode! What triggers driving mode? Does my phone sense the vibrations from the car? Recognize the angle it sits at every time I'm in the car? The radio was on, did it recognize that( could it differentiate from TV)? This simply blew me away when this happened. I haven't tried to recreate the circumstances again. Posted via Android Central App

Google Shows Off Android L, Android Wear, Android TV, Android Auto, And An Arrogant Dog In Its Latest Ad


Wednesday 25th of June 2014 / feedproxy.google.com
Are you curious to see how all the new parts of Android will work together? Do you want this information delivered in advertisement form? Would you prefer this ad to feature an attractive yet non-threatening male model, a generic alt-rock backtrack, and a cute doggy? Then sit back and watch, my highly-specific friend, because your world is about to be rocked. OK, so Google's latest advertisement isn't exactly breaking the mold here, but it does show a pretty seamless transition between an Android L phone, an Android Wear watch, an Android Auto car, and finishing with Android TV. Assuming you're the kind of person who religiously buys anything running Google's OS, this could very well be you... in another four or five months, when Android L and all the rest finally make it to market. Oh, and you'll need to find a dog who's trained for an obstacle course, and who's arrogant enough to assume that he's won first place after a single run-though. Seriously, that dog is a jerk. He didn't even look at the other competitors. He's the canine equivalent of Richard Sherman. Ahem. There are a fe
