Songs for Amy


IndieFlix has expanded library patron access to mobile devices and smart TV devices such as Roku.  This enhancement increases the ways library patrons may view the films across many devices.

 Now for what this means for activating Indieflix: This enhancement requires a revised way to active an IndieFlix account.  The first time you are redirected to IndieFlix from RBdigital Gateway you will activate the account via a provided email link.  

Each device needs to be activated one-time via an email link as well.  This is a similar experience with other streaming services.  When each device is activated the device will be linked to the patron’s account for seamless access upon subsequent uses. Patrons using personal computers and mobile devices only activate one-time per device.

Each library staff computers and public-use computers may need to activate the users account each time and/or each day. This need due to the common practice of firewall protection and clearing of cookies, cache, and other institutional settings deployed by libraries, schools, government institutions, etc.
