Drop Box integration and picture orientation
« on: January 03, 2017, 11:25:52 AM »
The digital signage players do not read the picture orientation tag on drop box items.  Even though they look correct in DB they can be sideways or even upside down when displayed as part of the signage presentations. 

Support says to download the pic from dropbox / delete the pic from dropbox / use third party software to read the tag and rotate the picture /  and then re-upload the pic back into dropbox.  (Yuck)

Can we please make DS read the tag and display the pic correctly.  This feature has been part of every picture viewer and OS system for over a decade now so I hope that it should not be difficult to make it work in DS.

I have over 100 accounts with nearly 700 users using dropbox to store content so this is not trivial.
