Javascript horizontal ticker extremely slow
« on: September 11, 2013, 10:38:28 AM »
I tried the RSS new horizontal ticker but when I increased the font size, the ticker items actually overlapped and became unreadable.

Since that didn't work, I tried a swf ticker I downloaded from the web. That was too slow and since I didn't know how to change the timing, I finally decided to write a ticker in Javascript/HTML5 using the canvas component. It runs great in a local browser but when I include it as in my campaign presentation as an HTML component it's 5 or 6 times slower, literally creeping across the screen.

How can I get the HTML component to play at the same speed as it does in the browser. Is this just an Adobe AIR problem? I hope there is some way to get a fast, good looking horizontal scrolling ticker in Mediasignage.
