Puffin TV Player is a special version of the Puffin browser optimized for watching YouTube videos. And it has nothing to do with YouTube or Google Inc. It was developed by CloudMosa Inc. – the creator of the Puffin web browser.
The improvements in speed and user interface were made possible by Puffin’s fast cloud rendering. The Puffin browser is faster than other browsers or even native apps on expensive Android TV / Set-Top Boxes. The performance advantage is especially noticeable in cheap Chinese media set-top boxes on Android TV.
The application has a multilingual interface, and also requires Android version 4.2 Jelly Bean or higher installed on the device. No ads.
Less data usage is made possible by Puffin’s efficient data compression for YouTube. The Puffin browser consumes 80-90% less traffic than other browsers or even apps from Google. Data economy is more important for slow network connections, such as those in developing countries or while roaming.
Puffin removes the traditional web browser user interface for a fully immersive YouTube experience. Puffin’s interface is made as subtle and intuitive as possible. For example, monthly traffic savings are displayed when you refresh your newsfeed. To view the image in full quality, it is enough to shake the device.
To fully appreciate the new version of Puffin try it out on the Nexus Player or any inexpensive Android TV set-top box. The browser works great with no lags.
