Feature Request: Cached mode for "external video" component
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:16:56 AM »
Feature request:
when you select an "external video" component, can there be a checkbox under the URL field for "cached mode"
then it can treat it like a local file, reload it when you hit "save" or once a day at night

The reason this came up is because the external component (even though the file is already cached on the device) seems to continue streaming because it is a "component" not a "resource" -- according to the support personel i spoke to

It is not explained that items that are components are not cached and items that are resources are.
You may want to add that to the one of bubbles that you can check "i know" on in signageStudio
