If I had to make a list of essential applications on my Smart TV, there would be no shortage of mainstream streaming platforms such as Netflix or HBO Max, nor other utilities such as a good file manager or a browser and of course, Stremio, which solves one of the main problems of streaming. If we talk about players, I admit that my list is long and there is no shortage of great classics like Kodi, Plex or VLC, but today I want to remember another fundamental on my TV: Wiseplay.
Although throughout this article I am going to tell you why Wiseplay is essential to get the most out of my Smart TV, I will tell you something: if you usually use IPTV lists, Wiseplay is the best you will find to play them.
Wiseplay is the perfect ally for my IPTV lists
As I said in the intro, Wiseplay It is a video player for Android TV and Google TV, Fire TV, as well as Android phones and tablets, so to install it on your television or device it must have said operating system. It’s free and you can find it in the Google Play Store or, if you use an Amazon Fire TV, from an APK following these instructions. Of course, the toll in exchange for not having to open your wallet is advertising, although it is not much and is bearable.
Once it has been downloaded and installed on the television or device, what will catch your attention when you open it is how surprisingly simple and easy to use it is. Or what is the same, without distractions or possibility of error. The screen is dark, there are hardly any options and the eyes go to what is important: to that pink icon with a magnifying glass, where you must enter the lists. Not only does it avoid confusion, but in general it offers a fluid experience as long as the conditions are good.
Because this application is capable of supporting, opening and playing a long list of audio and video formats, as well as add IPTV lists in m3u and w3u format, which in my case allows me to watch free DTT channels such as TDTChannels, streaming and much more. So far I have not encountered compatibility problems and its proposal is such that it even works for 3D video formats and virtual reality, which can come in handy if you have a VR headset.
That is, it is an agile and effective way of gather all the lists that interest me in a single application so you don’t lose sight of them, always have them at hand and open them without losing time for playback.
Its simple appearance hides a great user experience and a multitude of options
Only with the above, the presence on my television would be completely justified, but it also hides aces up its sleeve to facilitate the process before play any multimedia content without extra applications. Thus, it allows you to launch content from a mobile device to the TV and comes with a web browser, two functions that, for example, would make it possible to broadcast a video from the tablet or watch something from the Internet. In summary, it plays from a storage drive, but it can also be used to download or bring it from a list.
I praised its simplicity before, but the fact that its appearance is simple is not at odds with it being a complete application in optionssomething that a simple look at the settings reveals: it allows you to add subtitles, it has parental control, customization to modify the brightness of the screen or go to dark mode, it is possible to play with the playback progress or the volume…
