Playing content from ftrack in local players, such as HieroPlayer or RV, requires published versions in ftrack. Versions can be published from the API like this:

To specify which component should play when loading a version into ftrack review in external review tools such as HieroPlayer and RV you need to set the “Playable component name” for each asset type. This is done from System settings ‣ Workflow ‣ Asset types. By default the playable component name will be “main”.
