Compatibility

UPDATE MARCH 6th 2017 - Easylife is a broadcasting platform that requires gaming performance PCs to broadcast and must have a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 min. Improvements in February 2017 can now allow broadcasting from Quad Core Laptops running Windows 10.

When broadcasting, your viewers will not need such performance and by the spring of 2017 all popular browsers will support all viewing of easylife services. When broadcasting some services from Easylife require your browser to feature full compatibility with HTML5's getUserMedia with multi camera select as well as Web-Real-Time-Communication which is an encrypted video streaming function forming part of your browser. Both are used extensively by Easylife.com

In the case of Broadcast to third party services our Easylife Broadcast Station is an adaptive streaming interface that allows your browser to connect to third party services. Although we are working on Facebook LIVE at the current time, interface to other services is possible in the future.

UPDATE

chrome logo

Chrome Browser

Chrome currently accounts for over 70% of all browser users. Chrome supports real time communication and multi-camera select. We are able to store your cameras that you choose to use for all our services. Chrome fully supports broadcasting and reception of all Easylife services
opera logo

Opera Browser

Opera should offer all services along the lines of Chrome. To install Chrome extensions within Opera Browser you will need to download the Chrome Extension and add to Opera first - See out Third Party Support page. Opera fully supports broadcasting and reception of all Easylife services
firefox logo

Firefox Browser

Firefox supports Real Time Communication and should work fully with our services. Because there is a requirement of each video & audio source to be manually accepted we cannot restore your devices when you return. Recent updates to Firefox 53 due for public release in the spring of 2017 supports all aspects of camera selection. Firefox 53 fully supports broadcasting and reception of all Easylife services
edge logo

Edge Browser

Edge supports Real Time Communication but no current support for different camera selection at the time of writing. Edge can be used to view some services and compatibility is progressing. Microsoft have confirmed compatibility with all easylife services from Edge 14 to 15 due for release in the spring of 2017

Safari Browser

In April 2016 Apple announced it was adding support for real time communication to its Safari browser. This will allow the web browser to handle more services from easylife.com

Android & IoS Apps

Easylife is designed to operate in the browser. No App provides all the broadcasting functions provided by Easylife but we do offer a full suit of apps designed to support the various aspects of Broadcast and Reception. If you operate a chrome book try visiting Easylife.com broadcast services but it will not benefit from the support of the IP Camera app we have created for Windows users or the Broadcast Station app designed for third party services like Facebook and Youtube

  • Apps to support viewing
    • View Only - We offer a suit of apps that provide a view only function - they are all free to download
    • View only with interaction - In the spring of 2017 expect to see new apps that allow users to interact with broadcasts
    • View only with panoramic - Due Spring 2017

  • Apps to support broadcast
    • Due for release in March 2017 is an app designed for mobile phones and tablets that allows its camera to appear as a Video source in your Broadcaster, you can select front or rear camera if your device is fitted with both - 6 versions of the app will be available

ESSENTIALS

Easylife Broadcast Station

Easylife Broadcast Station is a System App designed to allow broadcasting from your browser to third party services. There has been a history of version releases but problems identified with audio sync have delayed the release. At the time of writing Easylife engineers are working on the issues for 60% of their time. This system app will allow connection to Facebook, Youtube and other services like Twitch that require an RTSP stream protocol


ABOUT US

About Easylife.com

Easylife is a professional video interface that allows you to share your webcam, IP Cameras or Desktop in a peer-to-peer environment or directly to services such as Facebook. It is a straightforward way to use video entirely in your browser. If you are looking to chat securely with friends, create a broadcast quality peer to peer communication link between a professional camera or simply the camera built into your mobile phone then we are the service for you

It uses the latest API technology built into browsers, much of which is experimental and still being agreed between browser providers. It means that some services will only work Chrome to Chrome or in the case of Broadcast to third party services, will only work in Firefox. It means that services such as Chat will not be concluded until there is agreement between browser providers relating to protocol implementation

About Easylife.TV

Easylife.TV is a Public Service Content Delivery Network (PS-CDN) due for formal launch in 2017. Our Broadcasting Platform at easylife.com is the only way to broadcast to easylife.tv but both broadcasting and reception are free. It features cutting-edge neural technology to distribute video content via the internet to PC's Laptops and Mobile Apps. It does this without any central servers and means that your content can be distributed directly from your browser using Windows 10 or Ubuntu Desktop Operating Systems and running entirely within the browser

Easylife is ideal for established broadcasters looking to reduce or eliminate their CDN costs and Easylife provides an instant solution. We fully respect the intellectual property of content providers and seek to have in place full reporting and abuse mechanisms by December 2017

We will not seek to add any logo overlays, add third party adverts, inject any third party content what-so-ever in your broadcasts. We will limit our involvement in your broadcast to a small barely distinguishable watermark bearing the easylife word and this will not be added until the summer of 2017

We hope broadcasters will share and embrace this technology and see potential opportunities for their business in the future. Our systems and plans include some amazing concepts which include automated advertising recognition (within your streams) with full reporting mechanisms available only to you, the ability to attach a Pay Per View stream to an exiting Free stream for premium content as well as simultaneous multi-broadcasts for shopping TV channels that enable viewers to see alternative product views and even 3 dimensional views of the product they are looking to purchase

Whilst our service already supports unlimited viewers of your Public Service CDN broadcast, we also offer upgrade options allow broadcasters to cap their expenditure at a remarkably low cost, improve the connectivity rate with server support in Europe, Asia & America as well as removing the very small easylife watermark from broadcasts

How it works

All services work in a fully in-browser environment but often changes are made to the way browser API's are accessed and we need to implement changes to reflect these improvements. Free sign-up allows you to get started straight away and we automatically store your settings for when you return. It means that you do not have re-select all the cameras when you return. CCTV Services with Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is now fully operational with Chrome and our newly created series of apps. Cloud Video Recording (CVR) launched fully on December 8th 2015 and uses Microsoft's cloud storage service. This provides an unprecedented level of security over your stored images which only you have access too. Optimization of all services is ongoing. In the Summer of 2016 we improved the playback engine for stored cloud recordings and we have further ideas for the future.
