User manual UlangoTV: Installation

updated 2019-02-05:  Download new Versions with UlangoTV itself!!

Requirements:
The device must be equipped with the Android operating system.
Version> = 4.2.2

Also the derivate Amazon Fire is supported. Likewise, Android TV systems like Sony Bravia or Phillips and of course Nvidia Shield.


  • Uninstall any existing older version of the app before installation
  • In the settings, allow the loading of unknown sources
  • Register on ulango.tv with email and password or via Facebook or Google Login.

Download from the Google Play Store: Currently there is only the free version of UlangoTV Free IPTV in the Play Store. Installation of this version on Android TV via Play Store is currently not possible.

Download for all other versions and devices: If you want to download the Premium Plus version UlangoTV EPG-IPTV, or if you want to install on an Amazon Fire TV or an Android TV, you must do so from our website ulango.tv. The procedures are slightly different depending on the device, but the URL is always the same:

UlangoTV Free IPTV: http://ulango.tv/uploads/free.apk
UlangoTV+ EPG-IPTV: http://ulango.tv/uploads/plus.apk

SmartPhones, tablets and Android boxes typically have a browser available, e.g. Chrome. The above URLs can easily be entered for a download. After the download, you will be asked if you want to install. Versions with the same name and different version have to be deinstalled beforehand.

In all other cases downloading with the Downloader app (from AFTVnews.com) is the easiest. Download this helper application from the Google Play Store (search for downloader aftv) if you’re using Android TV or from the Amazon Store if you’re on a Fire TV stick or box (https://www.amazon.com/AFTVnews-com-Downloader/dp/B01N0BP507)

Establish link between device, app and your ulango.tv account
!! update: See also User Manual UlangoTV: Devices and Account
When the app UlangoTV is started, an authorization check is performed first. The basis for this is a unique device-specific identifier (MAC). This is usually detected automatically if the device and the browser used for the login are in the same network (LAN / WLAN behind the shared router)
If the device with its MAC is not yet known, then it is checked whether an account is currently logged in with the same external IP address as the new device. If that is the case then the device is automatically connected to the account.

In exceptional cases, it may happen that the device is in a different network. In these cases, the assignment can be made using a 4-digit number, which can be seen on the start page in the app in the top bar, and which must be entered in the device page on the website.

It is important to know that the app must be compatible with the service used: UlangoTV+ EPG-IPTV for Premium Plus and UlangoTV Free IPTV for the free version.

Downloading with the Free UlangoTV app

Starting from Version 4.1.31(f), UlangoTV has a built-in downloading capability.   You find it in the menu drawer on the left: Settings -> Updates.
There you find which version is currently running and install links to the most important versions. Two phases are involved – Downloading and Installing
The downloading is done to the emulated sdcard storage folder ‘Downloader‘.
After downloading, the app tries to hand it over to the installer.  This requires some privileges, which cannot be granted in any case.  Starting from Android 8.0, this will not be possible in any case. You will be asked for additional privileges or you get a message ‘There was a problem while parsing the package”.  Don’t worry – the package is ok.

Installing downloaded packages can be done with apps which have the privilege to do so.  Examples are the ES File Explorer or the Downloader app (by AFTVnews.com).  Just use this app to navigate to local storage folder Downloader.  There you’ll find the downloaded file with name {version}.apk.  Just open to install and open the UlangoTV package.

Updates on UlangoTV for Amazon Fire TV and Samsung SmartTV

update

Betatest UlangoTV on Amazon Fire TV

We are overwhelmed by the response to our app on the Amazon Fire TV devices. Although the app is still in testing stage we were able to climb the first places in the Amazon store for important keywords relating to IPTV.

In the last update we have first done a lot for the stability. For this purpose we have implemented, like we did for the Samsung SmartTV devices, an anonymous monitoring, which gives us information about the quality of the streams. We use this information to improve and adapt the selection of the streams to the specific hardware.

Changes

  • Bug fix: avoid termination for unknown video states
  • Feedback at the start of a stream
  • Implementation of an anonymous Stream Quality Monitoring

Plans for the near future

  • Support for other protocols in streaming player and better stability
  • Definition of playlists from within the app

UlangoTV on Samsung SmartTV – J-Series (Tizen)

Unfortunately, again, Samsung changed the installation of user apps. After the update of the J-Series to  the 1422 firmware, installation of apps via USB no longer functions. Apps can now be loaded only directly from the Samsung App Store or with the Samsung SDK for developers.

We recommend our customers to postpone upgrading the firmware for Tizen.

We strive to get our app officially into the Samsung App Store as soon as possible.

UlangoTV on other Android Devices

So far UlangoTV been tested only on TV boxes. We are working hard to offer UlangoTV on other Android devices like tablets or smartphones. Schedules, we can not call now.

UlangoTV on other OSes

We get lots of requests for Ulango TV on other operating systems (IOS, Linux, LG, Sony, Philips, etc). Unfortunately, we are still very limited in our development capabilities currently and need to focus on a few platforms. So no promises on this issue.Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmail
