    I am refering to this thread and post: [Rejected] - Support for SkyGo (Germany)

    As MP2 is a pure Windows solution would it be possible to integrate the respective Windows 10 App as a plugin for MP2? Some kind of proxy plugin that seamlessly invokes the official app? And after use returns to MP2 GUI? That could be done for Sky, Netflix, Amazon Video, Amazon Music and such and the development team could get rid of the task to always adjust respective parts of the Online Videos plugin. I mean the Windows 10 Apps are already there. And if people are using them already they anyways have a Microsoft Store account.

    Just an idea.

    I had launched the Netflix app by the AppLauncher plugin of MP2 already, so it should be possible to do so with other apps as well.

    Calling the SkyApp via AppLauncher is starting the app. However,
    • MP2 stays in front and the app is not immediately usable
    • AppLauncher's window size instructions (min, normal, max) are ignored
    • Arguments are obviously not usable. The app will accept auto-Login if once entered manually.
    • Controlling the app requires a mouse and Keyboard.
    • No "big screen" mode
