Happy 13th birthday MYETV

MYETV‘s thirteenth birthday is upon us and as every year we will introduce lots of new features and new ideas throughout the platform. This year will be special as we are about to make very important changes to the engines that allow MYETV to work; for this we have already made various changes to our terms of service and privacy policy. After various events that have occurred, we have decided with unanimity to also encrypt the informations about the contents posted by MYETV registered users; the encryption will be confidential (128bit), a few bits below the already present encryption (256bit) regarding the accounts registered on the platform. We have already updated the various documents to allow you to understand what data and how this data will be encrypted; we are using 128bit encryption this time to ensure maximum compatibility with the data entered and the encryption system in fact we have already added the random initial vector to all the contents to prepare them for the encryption, in conjunction with an encryption key given by the program and not saved on the databases and this key will be the key used to encrypt the informations (we have decided to use a fixed encryption key for everyone to ensure maximum compatibility with the laws in force in all, or major, countries of the world); this new form of encryption will be implemented in these days and this is an example of a random initial vector already used:

In addition to all these important updates, we will make changes to all the platform by adding new features some long-requested, others new that will slightly modify the behavior of the platform; in fact, thanks to these updates, the whole MYETV platform will be subjected to historical changes that will be tested by everyone during this and the next years.

I will try to give you an initial list of the features we have in mind to develop these days, this list will be updated with more information every time we change something:

  • Two new colored themes will be added during the 13th birthday of MYETV (under development)
  • Contents information encryption: as specified above, we will make changes to the sharer to encrypt the content information with a heavy 128bit encryption (under development)
  • Sharer updates: the content sharer will be modified to add video content from Twitter as well and others some minor changes about Cloudflare Stream and others (under development)
  • MYAPPS: we will build new MYAPPs for content creators that will allow the incorporation of Twitter contents automatically filtered via hashtags and content location, right under the content shared with MYETV (under development)
  • Translations: MYETV has been translated into 5 different languages: English, Italian, Spanish, French, German; access to some features has also been reactivated for the Spanish, French and German languages
  • Various minor updates to the APP for TVs and widescreen devices to improve the navigation and the usability
  • The mobile app for Android devices will be updated to add the button “close the app” and with others minor updates
  • The app for Microsoft Win10 and XBOX devices will be updated to use the latest SDK updates and with others minor changes
  • A brand new way to watch content via MYRC (@): owners of a MYRC numeric channel and/or a content network will be able to increase the choice of contents to be shown in the PlayWall by choosing them from any content network present on MYETV; currently, in fact, they can only show contents from the same network they own; with this update it will be possible to show public contents from other networks, all networks or only the networks chosen by the owner of that network. Only contents with privacy and visibility set as PUBLIC can be chosen and that have a followship accepted from both. (under development)
  • Terms of Services are updated with some changes (encryption section)
  • Privacy Policy is updated with some changes (encryption section)
  • A lot of new updates will be presented during this month with surprises… We will update this document every time we will make some changes. Stay tuned for more…

For this anniversary I would like to personally thank all the professional developers who have worked hard to evaluate and accept our apps in their official stores; the developers of Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Twitter have worked silently with all of you to test the features and report the various bugs and/or trivial errors to be corrected. These people, for me, are real heroes who have spent part of their time and their precious work silently to make us grow.

Therefore, I thank those who gave me the opportunity to become an official developer of Microsoft, Google, Amazon and to meet large communities of developers all over the world. That’s (not yet) all, folks! Stay tuned for more informations about new updates and the changes to the platform MYETV.
