BBC and other apps use javascript to communicate with their own servers. The app request a video then the server send a respond back with the direct video url that Samsung TV or other device can play.

Video hosting sites like vidto.me not work in this way. Their direct video urls is hidden because many reasons. (Revenue, direct linking, ...) + The video url is bounded with the player device's IP or/and MAC address to.
To resolve these hidden urls White Raven needs to read the website content. This is the problem because javascript can't read other websites content. (CORS)

So, a "server side" program is required. The simplets and free way is to run it on the tv itself.

Other natural ways to run the server:
Free: Run it on a PC, tablet or phone.
Paid: Run it on a webserver, vps or cloud hosting with python, golang, etc... installation. (Big bandwidth usage.)

Speculate way:
Iframe content hacking. (Almost every site block this. + Dangerous, because application can't block popup windows and if a popup is fired then the program will not respond anymore to remote keys.)

App works in my TV, i noticed a few things (though i haven't really checked it out that much).

But it would be nice to have to option to output surround sound, subtitles, and the option to mark a show or a movie as favorite.

I thought your app is going to be made free for us, and you're going to ask people to pay 2 $ per month, I thought we would pay 2 $ to watch free movies, but you would have to withdraw money from that app. are you crazy, torrent link is free

You can watch movies with the demo key.

Torrent is free, but online server is not.
I will remove the patreon donate link, but online server will be die.

I'm testing subtitle function.
I have created the version that run the server on rooted F to, but it crashes many times.

Sorry, but all of the White Raven's online servers died. (R.I.P 14 servers with almost 1 year uptime.)
White Raven version 0.3 is comming soon, but only for Samsung Smart TV F rooted. Torrent server will run on TV locally.
