URL App additional notes:

  • The page will be opened using your player's browser, so rendering may look different compared to your desktop. We suggest you test the final look on the target player before deploying the content.
  • Some pages may have a particular security setting preventing it to be opened inside the URL App. Best solution is testing it on a player before actually deploying it.
  • It is important to understand the target webpage terms of service and copyrights to avoid breaking any licensing agreement.
