Matchstick inflates release Chromecast competitor with Firefox OS off




The company Matchstick announced the release of the eponymous product, a hdmi stick with Firefox OS to stream video to TVs, abandoned. Problems with DRM video would cause not to bring the stick.

This was reported by the company in an e-mail to people who had gebackt the project on Kickstarter, writes Variety. “The ongoing development of DRM is, recently a good start, a long and difficult road,” the developers in the mail. “We have come to the conclusion that we can not predict when we’re done with that.” Backers get their money back.

The cancellation of the project comes out of the blue. Earlier postponement was due to the integration of new hardware in the product. Matchtstick thus replaced the dual-core SOC for a quad and had to receive wifi better compared to the first version.

The Matchstick is similar in functionality to the Google Chrome cast and was last September announced . Soon the device was funded by a Kickstarter campaign. Mozilla Firefox OS contributes to the software.
