A seamless experience

During my time there, among other things, I was responsible for the media playback feature, which had to support multiple video and audio formats, like Movies, TV Shows, linear TV, Podcasts, Home videos, etc.

The objective was to guarantee a consistent experience regardless of the media format, device, or platform utilized, including mobile phones, televisions, desktop computers, or gaming consoles.
