Microsoft Store Application Compatibility for Streaming Players

Seeking Guidance on Application Compatibility for Microsoft Store

Hello Microsoft Experts,

I hope this message finds you well. We're currently seeking advice and insights from the Microsoft community regarding the compatibility of our streaming application for potential inclusion in the Microsoft Store.

Our company, CDN System, has achieved success with a streaming application deployed on Amazon's Firestick platform. This application, built using the Flutter framework for Android, specializes in on-demand channel streaming and offers VOD (Video on Demand) movie purchases, mirroring the functionality of renowned services such as Amazon Prime.

Given that our application falls within the realm of non-game content, we are keen to explore its presence in the Microsoft Store. We're looking to connect with experts and fellow developers in this community to gain valuable insights on the accepted application formats and guidelines for non-game applications, especially those designed for on-demand channel streaming.

Your collective wisdom and guidance are instrumental as we endeavor to align our offering with the Microsoft Store's specific requirements. We warmly welcome any advice, best practices, or shared experiences from those who have navigated a similar path.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to valuable interactions with this community of Microsoft experts.

Warm regards

    For information on publishing to the store and store policies see Publish Windows apps and games and Store Policies and Code of Conduct

    I don't believe there are any special policies around streaming apps.

    The store is agnostic to the platform that apps are built with, so long as they are packaged appropriately.

    Flutter has docs on how to build and publish a Flutter app to the Microsoft Store at Build and release a Windows desktop app
