Chromecast Integration Prerequisites

Prior to integrating with the Ooyala Chromecast Integration v.2.0 you must have the following.

SDK Access

The latest version of the Ooyala mobile SDK for Android and/or the Ooyala mobile SDK for iOS from http://support.ooyala.com/resources/mobile-and-client-sdks .

Technical Expertise

Experience with iOS or Android development.

Experience with JavaScript development.
Enablement If you are using the default receiver, log into the Support Center and submit a ticket requesting that Technical Support add the "Chromecast Default Receiver" third party module to your account. You need to provide Technical Support with your player ID at this time. For information on how to get your player ID, see Basic Tutorial for the HTML5 Player V3.
Or
If you are using the custom receiver, log into the Support Center and submit a ticket requesting that Technical Support add the "Chromecast Custom Receiver" third party module to your account. You need to provide Technical Support with your player ID at this time. For information on how to get your player ID, see Basic Tutorial for the HTML5 Player V3.
Note: Do not use the same player ID for the default and custom receiver (use a different player ID when requesting “Chromecast Custom Receiver” and “Chromecast Default Receiver” from Technical Support).
To enable streaming protocols for processing profiles, please contact technical support.
Hosting
Note: Please note that these hosting prerequisites do not apply if you are using Ooyala's sample applications, as they are hosted by Ooyala and are CORS enabled.
Ooyala does not offer receiver application hosting. You must facilitate your hosting infrastructure for receiver applications. The production receiver must be served over SSL.
Set up Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) enablement on the CDN you use for content serving. For information on how to enable CORS, see CORS and Chromecast.
Registration Register with Google as a developer to get a receiver application ID (this shows the sender application which receiver to send to). The Cast developer license can be found at https://cast.google.com/publish/#/overview. This will register the URL of the receiver app webpage.
