Google Drive - Need Auto Cache Dump.
« on: April 02, 2018, 03:15:25 PM »
Seems like the fix to all things glitchy with google drive is to clear the player cache.

Could we have a timed item either as a resource that could be placed on a timeline or something in the station tab that would clear the cache on a schedule - every hour, at a certain time, or something?

With over 100 accounts it is difficult / time consuming to do this manually and I have not had much luck trying to automate it externally. 

Thanks!

Have your tried the remote station clear cache button? if so did that do the trick as we may be able to automate it and we do have API support for this as well.

Yes - I use the remote clear all the time.  Having to go into each account, and then each station, and then click on the little eraser is what I would like to have a better option for.

Also - at times - maybe 2 out of 10 cache dumps - the station ends up setting at the white connection screen and does not automatically restart.  The client has to power off and back on the player to get it going again.  Maybe watchdog is not catching it. (?)

Having an easy to add clear the cache event on a time schedule would be awesome as long as everything restarts cleanly.

Having a Dump All button that would do it for all users / stations / that are under my enterprise account would be very useful as well.

The main issue is it seems when we add an item to drive it shows up pretty quickly - when we delete an item from drive it may stay in the memory on the player for several hours or even days.  Dump the cache and it is gone.

Thanks so much!
