Digital Signage Player - 4.10.20 for Ipad
« on: January 18, 2013, 01:04:43 AM »
Hi

I've installed the Signage Player App for Ipad - but the Controller don't work? And exists a list of limitations in componenents, formats etc for the Ipad?

I tried the Player with the "TrainStation - Demo" Campaign and it works... but really slow - more lagging in my opinion.

iPad does support the FLV and MP4 but the video must be encoded with H.264

thanks for the test video file, that works fine.
it looks like it may have been a combination of video resolution and codec that were the issue.

What is the max resolution that will play without issue on the ipad?, ive tried full hd and it slows the video down to a crawl although audio is fine.

A really good free app for video conversion is Handbrake.  It has an iPad preset, so all you have to do is open your file, choose the iPad preset on the left column and hit start.  It will automagically convert it to H264 ;)

I also use HandBrake to encode all my videos to an H264 mp4... works great.
