Kicking off the week with a thank you... to YOU!

In April we sent you a survey so you could tell us about your PlayOn and PlayLater experience. We were curious about why you use PlayOn and PlayLater and how you felt about cable. We wanted to see what was working well for you and what could use some work on our end.

The results blew us away.

More than 4,000 of you responded, and we got a lot of great feedback! So, as a thank you, we’re dedicating this week to you - the folks who are always willing to put in your two cents through surveys, Facebook conversations, tweets and emails, to help us create a better user experience. Take a look at the survey results below to see what you and fellow PlayOn and PlayLater users had to say.

 

Thanks again, loyal friends, for filling us in on your PlayOn and PlayLater experiences. We can’t wait to see what you have to say during next year’s survey! In the meantime, be sure to join the conversation on our awesome Facebook group where there’s never a dull moment with our followers! We’re also available to chat on Twitter or by email.

Give PlayMark a Shot! Here’s How to Get Started

PlayMark is the new browser extension we told you about a couple of days ago. PlayMark lets you easily mark online videos and send them through PlayOn right to your TV. We wanted to take a quick opportunity to show you just how easy it is:

1) Enable PlayMark in your PlayOn Settings.

Enable PlayMark in PlayOn Settings

 

2) Select a browser. You can hook up PlayMark with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

3) Find a cool video that you want to stream to your TV. Whether it’s YouTube, Funny or Die or your best friend’s blog – nearly any video on any site (as long as it's in Flash, Silverlight, or HTML5) will work.

4) Mark your video. Right click on the web page that contains the video and select “PlayMark” to launch the PlayMark app. (If you use Opera, PlayMark will be installed as an icon in your toolbar.)

5) Send the video to your TV. If you have a Digital Media Renderer (DMR) device like a Roku or Xbox, you can send the video straight to your TV. Just select “save and send to TV." from PlayMark.

 

6) Watch the video on your TV! PlayMarked videos can be found in the PlayMark channel on PlayOn.

 

Tips to remember:

  • You’ll need to update to the latest version of PlayOn to use PlayMark.
  • If you use the Opera browser, you can access PlayMark as a toolbar button rather than using right-click.
  • PlayMark works with videos (in the Flash, Silverlight, and HTML5 format) from any website – even those that are online only! We recommend checking out sites like YouTube, MySpace.com, Break.com, UStream and Justin.tv. You can even check out your local news stations to see what clips they’re streaming online.
  • PlayMark is in beta, which means we want to hear from you. Your feedback will help us make PlayMark the best it can be. Find a site that doesn’t play nice with PlayMark? Is there a feature that you really love? Tell us at support@playon.tv.

We hope you find PlayMark a useful addition to PlayOn. All of this information is handy on our PlayMark page and we have a PlayMark User Guide for folks who want more details.

So – go try it out, enjoy, and let us know what you think! As always, you can reach us on Facebook, Twitter or via email.

Three exciting new features for PlayOn and PlayLater.

PlayOn just gave birth to triplets…3 new features…introducing, drum roll please, PlayMark, PlayTo and RecordTo!
 
 
PlayMark
We’re so excited. For starters, PlayOn can now let you watch VIRTUALLY ANY web video on your TV. It’s called PlayMark – and it is a web browser extension. Picture this – you’re browsing the web on your PC, you come across a cool video that you want to show to your family later on TV. You click the PlayMark icon in your browser menu to mark the video, and then continue happily browsing the web. Later that evening, you’re in front of the TV looking for something to watch – oh yeah, I wanted to show you guys something! Bring up PlayOn, find the PlayMark folder, click on it and --- in a few seconds you’re watching that same web video you PlayMarked earlier…right on your TV!
It’s in beta now, and if you want to be one of the first lucky ones to give it a test drive – check out the details at www.playon.tv/playmark.
 
PlayTo
PlayMark has this other cool feature integrated into it called PlayTo. Instead of simply bookmarking it for later -- if you have a Roku, Xbox 360 or Google TV (or any Digital Media Renderer (DMR)), you can just click “send to…” and the video will start playing on your TV (well, so long as the Roku/Xbox/GoogleTV is connected to that TV). You can also use PlayTo from your mobile phone or tablet. Just browse through the PlayOn app on your phone or iPad, click the play button, then select the device you want the video to play on and it’ll start playing on your TV, instantly. I know – cool, right?
 
RecordTo
It gets even better. We’re also including, for your convenience, at no extra cost…RecordTo. RecordTo is for PlayOn users who also have PlayLater, or “Bundlers”, as we like to call you guys. It lets you select a video from your phone’s PlayOn app and record it via PlayLater. As long as your PlayOn app is paired with your PlayLater PC and PlayLater is running, it will just add the video to the recording queue on your PC. How convenient is that? Now, using your phone, you can:

  1. Watch on your Phone (PlayOn)
  2. Send to your Roku (PlayTo)
  3. Record in PlayLater (RecordTo)

Yeah baby – all of this right from your phone or tablet.
So – welcome to our feature triplets: PlayMark, PlayTo and RecordTo – we hope you enjoy our new babies!

Top FAQs

What is PlayOn?
PlayOn is software that you install on your Windows PC. It allows you to use your Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Roku, iPhone, Android phone or another supported device to access movies and shows from content providers like Hulu, Netflix, Comedy Central, CBS, YouTube, MLB.tv, your personal media, and many more. PlayOn is both browser and media server software, built into one. It browses content from various online providers, and displays that content directly on your TV, iPhone or Android phone.
How does it work?
PlayOn runs in the background on your PC over your home network. It uses standards called UPnP and DLNA to communicate with networked gaming consoles,TVs, and mobile phones working both as an internet browser to access online media and as a UPnP media server to serve videos to UPnP compliant devices.
