Fnac PLAY

Premium digital video store

Native apps. Light & powerful

We've worked closely with our partner VOD Factory to build one of the best digital video stores for Fnac, one of the top retailer in France. The project is an e-Commerce website with 6 native apps (from PC to TV) to reach everyone.

From Windows app to Google Cast...

The creative process of FnacPLAY began with a phase of brainstorming during which we were able to decide of the key features of the platform. The point was to make it stand out in a very competitive ecosystem. From editor's selection to HTTPS security, recommendation engine and secured players compatibility we thought about every single detail.

The encrypted content can be streamed or downloaded for offline playback with subtitles and audio tracks still available to the user. We have developed a Windows 7+ desktop app, a MacOS X desktop app, an Universal iOS app for iPhone and iPad, and an Android app for smartphones and tablets.

Every screen needs attention

To provide efficient streaming and offline download, we've built native apps for every device from mobile and tablet to desktop.

Protected content

To give access to content through secured and encrypted streaming, Common Encryption is used alongside Marlin DRM in every app, and PlayReady is used for Google Cast playback.

Recommendation engine

Our data scientists and engineers wrote advanced algorithms based on user data and metadata to find the perfect movie to watch in every situation and mood.

Offline playback

Before commuting or traveling, users can download encrypted content with subtitles and multi audio for offline playback by using the FnacPLAY app .

Google Cast

We all want to play movies on the big screen and we added the Google Cast implementation in our mobile and tablet apps. And yes, it's still protected using PlayReady DRM.

Elegant, modern and reliable video platform

FnacPLAY is one of our biggest projects. We thank our partner VOD Factory for their trust and implication. We're proud to have worked on this project and we can't wait to continue improving this platform in the future.

Watch all your movies & TV shows.
At anytime

People want to access their movies everywhere at any time, from their living room to their regular bus stop or even during a flight. To allow them to do so we've made native apps allowing them to watch their favorite content online or offline.
