Live TV Streaming App Android Studio – Create Project

I hope already you know the basic steps for how create project in android studio platform. Initially you have to choose some of activities and later that customize the structure based on project requirements. However most of developers are using this method to develop android apps and deploy into google play store.

First follow all the normal steps where we using create new project with package name, gradle version, API Level, SDK etc. Here we are using both of MySQL and Google Cloud Firebase database for manage the TV channels in server side. Actually Firebase is just optional when you have own server with minimum 5GB storage space for accessing TV channels. But mostly students have no premium server, that’s why here we are integrated into Firebase database.

But that’s not a good habit and we did not survey with long term processing steps. Therefore approval steps only the things for execute the streaming application.


  1. API Service
  2. Automatic Process
  3. Easy to use
  4. List View
  5. Sharing to Social Media Sites like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp etc.
