New Studio V6 - Google Drive Slideshow Check Box is missing.
« on: April 02, 2018, 11:35:00 AM »
Just a heads up - In the new version 6 of the studio the Google Drive Scene no longer has a slideshow checkbox.   So if you have a single image in a Google Drive folder it will "flash" every 10 seconds or so.  (Because it is playing it as a slideshow).  There is no longer an option to turn slideshow off.

We need this fixed please - we commonly save single image menu boards for our clients in google drive folders and then change to different folders based on calendars and timelines.  (Breakfast to Lunch to Dinner to Weekends ect.)  On V6 the single image reloads over and over and over.............   The fix was to reload V5 of the studio and uncheck the slideshow box.

I changed the name in the directory on the studio install program so I could have both V5 and V6 on my desktop.

Heads up number 2: If you copy a campaign from an existing customer to a new one the copy feature does not work.  You will get an error message saying that you must save first.  The fix is to copy and paste to a word doc - edit it from save = 0 to save = 1.   Recopy it and then paste it into the new client setup.  This should be a quick and easy fix for the Dev guys.

Lastly:  The URL preview in the studio still is not working in either version of the studio - it does not layer correctly so if you have a full screen background the campaign contents will be covered completely by the background.  You can not even click on the "Full Screen" area as it is covered by the background.   

This is a huge issue - we use the URL preview to demo our services as well as a way to get approval on clients campaigns / changes before we go out and install the actual screen.   This has cost us several new clients in the past month or so.  It was so nice to be able to just send a clickable link to a prospect and share how one of our current clients use our email to TV service in real time.  I feel like one of my arms is tied behind my back when interacting with a new possible client.

Hope this helps

Our next version will allow you to run the signage player inside StudioPro in full screen mode so we will be moving away from the web preview as flash development is pretty much being abandoned in all browser platforms.

The flashing is being caused by a 6.0 studio component being played on a 5.0 player becasue 5.x player defaults to slideshow.

For Clarification:

Will we still be able to send a link that allows a someone to preview a campaign without having to log into the studio?
If we open a campaign in full screen preview we will be able to grab the address line in the browser and share it or not?
If not will there be some solution for this other than doing a screen grab and uploading it to youtube?   Lastly - what is the time frame for this to be resolved.

Once 6.0 player is loaded and we use studio V6 there will be no "Flashing" if there is a single image in Google Drive?

Thanks as always!

Just a heads up:

Ran a 6.0 player with a V6 Studio and a single image stored in a google drive folder flashes.  Could not figure out how to make it stop. I will have to stay on the older player and older studio until this bug is squashed.   

I do love the V6 Studio RSS Feed font size and speed fix - awesome!

can you check if google drive player's Display Mode property is set to Manual if you plan to play only 1 image.

best regards
