How to watch movies from Video Hosting Websites on Android TV?

Unable to play Video from Video Hosting Sites on Android TV.

Environment

Platform: Smart Television
Operating System: Android TV, any version. 

Problem

Unable to play videos from video hosting websites on android TV because you don't have any TV app for the video hosting website.

For Example Unable to play video from YouTube.com without installing its app.
Summary


Some video hosting sites don't have dedicated apps for Android TVs, luckily Youtube has apps for Android TV but it is not the same case for another website.
So, what to do for such hosting sites?

Here in this tutorial, we are going to share an easy trick to get through this trouble.

Reason

Why are we not able to play Video directly from the website?
 
The Browsers on the TV are not capable of playing Video Contents. I tried the Puffin browser, which is available on TV's Playstore, and also tried the Native Browser available with Sony Bravia TV, but both of them are not able to run the playback content. 

Workaround

So for such sites which do not have any apps at present for the Android TV, below is the suggested workaround to make it work:


1. Install the Firefox Mozilla Browser on your Android TV from the link: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-tv/releases
  1. On the Television, you will not be able to download the Firefox Browser Application Pack APK directly, and this APK is available on the above link from GitHub. To install it, you need to First use your mobile or computer to download this application and save on Google Drive. 
  2. Once downloaded, upload it on the Google Drive folder and remember the location. 
  3. Now on the TV, use the ES File Explorer app and go to Network>Cloud>Google Drive and install the downloaded Firefox APK from here. 
2. The Firefox app for TV is installed, Now open the hosting website.

3. Now enjoy all the videos with Firefox Browser on your Television screen. 

Conclusion


Installing the Firefox TV APK provided the full-fledged browser feature to the Android Television. Whereas earlier, the native browser and the browser options available on Playstore had limited functionality and were unable to play the video contents. 
Firefox TV-Browser Application removed the limitations and provided with a powerpack feature to play Flash Video Contents & also download them. Now we can watch the movies directly from the browser and do not need a unique App to do that.

How to use "AirtelTV" on "Sony Bravia Android TV" & other "Android Smart TVs"?


Updated Solution (Dated 22June2020): Airtel Xtream TV app is now available on TV's Olaystorr
Problem
AirtelTV app is only for mobile, and if I install it on TV by overriding the conditions, then it is getting installed but is visible horizontally. I can not use cursor as the AirtelTV app uses touch input. So installing AirtelTV App on Android TV is not a solution; it needs some workaround to watch Airtel TV app content in another way. 

Summary

The Airtel TV app is only available for mobile devices, but lots of Airtel users who enjoy paid channels and movies on the AirtelTV app want to enjoy AirtelTV on the bigger screen. 
Like I want to see the videos on my big 55 inch TV Sony Bravia.

Environment

Platform: Smart Television
Operating System: Android TV, any version. 

Workaround

As we know that the Airtel TV app is not present for the Android TV below is the workaround I can suggest to make it work:


1. Install the Firefox Mozilla Browser on your Android TV from the link: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-tv/releases
  1. On your TV, you will not be able to download the APK directly, and this APK is available on the above link. To install it, you need to First use your mobile to download this application. 
  2. Once downloaded, save it on your Google Drive Folder. 
  3. Now on your TV, use ES File Explorer>Network>Cloud>Google Drive and install the APK from here. 
2. The Firefox app for TV is installed, Now open the link https://www.airtelxstream.in/

3. Now enjoy all Airtel TV app from here on your TV screen. 

Solution

Identified that Inbuilt Browser and Browser available on TV Playstore cannot download anything from the internet and play the Dynamic Contents like Flash Files and Videos. Puffin Browser and Native browsers are just right for Browsing the Internet.

To check this fact, we first tried to run the https://www.airtelxstream.in/ on the native browser and the Puffin Browser, but it failed to play the Content.
Even those Playstore Browser are not able to download any APK on the TV.
So we installed the Firefox TV APK from Google Drive and then test the https://www.airtelxstream.in/ website on it and found it working without any problem.

Airtel's website is platform-independent and can be used on a computer, mobile, or Smart TV; you can now definitely enjoy the contents of Airtel TV app on https://www.airtelxstream.in/.

Conclusion:

The Firefox Browser is very smart and able to play the Flash & Video contents without any problem.
Using this browser, it is possible to play contents directly from Youtube, Dailymotion, or any other video hosting websites. Now you don't need to keep on installing different applications for watching different Contents. 
For Android TVs, the Firefox Browser is the best because it can add a lot more capabilities than the TV browsers available on Playstore. Now with Firefox, you can not just browse the internet and read Contents but also enjoy additional features like a real mobile or desktop browser, as it let you play music, videos, and download.
Firefox will definitely save you from searching for unnecessary applications and perform most of the Content from one single browser.
