Developing

Sorry in advance that build system currently to get the app working is a mess and requires multiple package.json's this will hopefully be fixed in the future. Please contact me if you need help.

git clone https://github.com/oscartbeaumont/ElectronPlayer.git
cd ElectronPlayer/

# For Linux
ln -s package.linux.json package.json
# For Mac
ln -s package.mac.json package.json

npm install
npm start

TODO

  • Updated Electron Widevine
  • Update All DEPS
  • Add Tests
  • Add Windows Build Support
  • Add Greenkeeper Bot

Should fix at some point

  • Menubar Transparency Glitch On Mac
  • Netflix breaks when relaunching window (eg. Enabling PIP)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
