    Installing the Brightcove Engage™ Application for Internal Applications

    In this topic you will learn how to install the Brightcove Engage application on a mobile device.

    The installation process outlined in this topic should be used when you have created your own branded app with the assistance of Brightcove Consulting. Apple and Google may not approve internal only apps to their app stores which will require that the Brightcove Engage be installed from somewhere other than an app store.

    Before installing the application, you should ensure the needed installation files for both iOS and Android are hosted at an addressable location/URL.

    Publishing a Mobile App Experience will generate an Access Key that is required by the Brightcove Engage application to access the experience on mobile devices. This topic covers installation and basic navigation of the Brightcove Engage application.
