Getting Started: Setting Up an Account

This tutorial leads you step-by-step through the process of integrating ExpressPlay into your service and applications. There are five steps in the process, and each step has its own tutorial.


STEP 1

Creating an Account

To create a new account navigate to the ExpressPlay Portal site and click the Sign Up link.

Fill out the required fields (marked with *) and click the SignUp button. In a minute or so an email is sent to the provided address containing a link to verify your email address. Click the verification link and accept the terms of service to activate your ExpressPlay trial account.


STEP 2

Hooking Up to Your Store Front

To hook up your store front you will need an API Key/Customer Authenticator, click here for instructions on how to obtain one.

Next follow the Storefront Hookup Tutorial to learn how to integrate your store front with the ExpressPlay service.


STEP 3

Downloading the Packaging Tools

You can download the ExpressPlay Packaging Tools from the ExpressPlay Packaging Guide. After you have downloaded the tools you need for your desired media format, go to either the DASH tutorial or the HLS tutorial to encrypt a content file for working with the SDK tutorial.


STEP 4

Download the SDK and Build an App

On the ExpressPlay Admin site select the SDK tab in the sidebar. The SDK section enables you to download the appropriate test or production SDK package for your application. We recommend that you first build the example iOS application tutorial or the Android application tutorial to familiarize yourself with the basic SDK functions.
