Add Google Slides support
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:18:57 AM »
Working for a school district and principals are saying that it is too hard/time consuming to update our digital signage players.  Management is looking at a easy, more costly solution.  I like Digital signage and all that it can do even though it can be overwhelming - especially if you don't use it often.  Staff would like to be able to create a google slide and have it automatically update the devices (as long as the same name is used).  Any possibility of making this happen?

Technically this is already possible if using the &rm=minimal query at the end of your google slides URL within the HTML widget:
https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/YOURIDGOESHERE/pub?start=true&loop=true&delayms=10000&rm=minimal

Edit your google slide, and the next time the content loops back around it will update


OR

using the External App player with Google Chrome in --app mode:
App Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
Command Line: --app="https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/YOURIDGOESHERE/pub?start=true&loop=true&delayms=10000"

Note: Above assumes your google chrome installation is located in program files x86 not program files for 64-bit.

However, I agree, it would be much better if there was a direct integration... Is this something that can be done? We've got calendars, sheets & drive already... Why not slides?

I have done this with google drive and our email to TV service.

All the end user has to do is send an email with the attached images and they instantly become a slideshow on the TV's.

If a change needs to be made they just send a new email - Simple as that.

No need to get a new signage vendor - DS does this quite well.
