Custom RSS player - random only ?
« on: September 30, 2014, 12:55:45 PM »
Hi, I am using an RSS feed to feed a 'sequence' of pictures; this avoids my users having to learn the software (school teachers & admin assistants).  Generally, the pictures should be shown in groups - i.e., all pictures taken on same day should be displayed in sequence, together.   What I am finding is the Custom RSS player (which does the job perfectly for this usage) does not seem to play in a sequence of any kind, but rather, appears to be totally random ?  Is this correct?  or is my RSS feed formed incorrectly ?  Can this random behavior be disabled, and the player go in straight sequence from the feed ?

I went through the same problem, and the solution they gave me was to use XML Compontent, because with it items are displayed in order.
