XML component does support transition

I'm sorry I forgot to say that really works when tested on Windows, but Android does not work.
(See the update in the bottom)...

I found two other possible problems:
1 - We can configure the reload time of the XML? In CustomRSS is possible ... If we can not, which is the standard charging time for the XML?

That's not so bad, but I would like to know the standard time.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
2 - Do not know why, but it seems the XMLComponent not accept images that are with URL query string, eg:
WORKS: domain.com/image.jpg
DOES NOT WORK: domain.com/page.php?im=image
(I tested forwarding to the image in the "page.php" and I tested viewing it directly on the screen using "headers" in "page.php", did not work too ...)

In CustomRSS I put images with Query String and it works perfectly ....
This can be fixed? Or is it a limitation that has no way to fix?

I looked in the "Caching" Player folder, and the image with the query string looks like this: "Aidshius9739123.php" (example) ... And when I open that file in "Windows Picture Viewer" works, but the "Player" do not show the image just because the extension in Caching folder is ".php".

Thanks a lot! :)

-----------------------------

UPDATE about Transitions of XMLComponent:
The transitions are not working when you place a "Transition" in the "Resource" from "XMLItem".
I tested here and in Studio and Android also did not work ....

Thanks again.  :D

UPDATE about Images with Query String:

Images in query string, in the first time, the Player show the image correctly, after the cache was created, the Player does not show the image correctly, because the cache, the image will be with PHP extension.

SOLUTION to Signage Team:
1 - The Player reads the image even it have PHP extension in Caching folder. (better solution)
or
2 - The Player make a better caching and place the extension of the caching image according to the image mimetype.

Thanks a lot.  ;D
