PRESTOplay SDK for Universal Windows Platform

PRESTOplay allows you to publish feature-rich video player apps for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Save development time and effort with a multitude of ready to use features for creating premium video playback experiences.

PRESTOplay for UWP

Reach Multiple Devices with One App

Our SDK allows you to develop a single player application for deployment across all UWP-compatible devices. This includes Windows 10 PCs, Xbox One, mobile devices, and even HoloLens. No extra development work is needed to release a cross-compatible branded native app!

HTML5

Build Apps with Web Technologies

Leveraging our shared PRESTOplay for Browsers framework, the same technology used to develop robust video players for browsers can also be used to deploy apps for UWP: HTML5, JS, CSS, and Encrypted Media Extensions (EME).

DRM-enabled

DRM-enabled for studio content playback

PlayReady

Uses the Microsoft PlayReady DRM system for online and offline content protection

DRMtoday

Seamlessly integrated with our cloud-based DRM licensing service, DRMtoday

Microsoft Store

Ready for Windows 10 ‘S Mode’

Windows 10 ‘S mode’ will eventually arrive for all editions of Windows 10, in some cases enabled by default. Users running in ‘S mode’ will be restricted to installing apps only obtained from the Microsoft Store.

Apps built with PRESTOplay allow you to publish to the Microsoft Store, future-proofing your program for this change.
