> browser in all example implementation we have seen.
> We have quick question, As described we are using Blue-Ray players
> which lacks the ability of having state-of-the-art browsers, is
> there any possibility of implementing OpenID and OAUTH w/out going
> thru browser route of redirection, such as any direct API call to
> get an authentication of user? Is it even feasible?
> Are there any implementations done for Set-Top-Box by any other
> company we could leverage some design discussions?
> Appreciate your early response.
> Thanks in advance.
