The Receiver application framework:
We offer two sample receivers that you can get started with: the default receiver and the custom receiver.
The default receiver application contains simplified code with playback capabilities and styling abstracted from the Receiver app. This receiver allows for quick and easy implementation for testing purposes, and so on. Use this receiver if you don’t want to make complicated customizations to the receiver UI. You can only customize logos and icons in the default receiver UI.
This receiver is recommended for customers who need:
The sample default receiver is now open source. Go to https://github.com/ooyala/chromecast-sample-receiver and open receiver_default.html.
The custom receiver application interacts with the Cast Receiver Library and is more verbose to allow for rich customization. The custom receiver UI can be used “as-is” or can be customized. Use a chromeless player and build your own UI on top of the custom receiver and/or customize playback capabilities.
This receiver is recommended for customers:
The sample custom receiver is now open source. Go to https://github.com/ooyala/chromecast-sample-receiver and open receiver_custom.html.
