RE: Browser component playing .mp4s
« on: December 05, 2018, 01:08:56 PM »

  My question is whether the nw.exe provided with SignagePlayer is "stock" (unmodified) or whether it has been modified to add features specific to Signage Player?

 The background:  in my application I need to use video.js to play an mp4 (h.264) - on WIndows.  This doesn't work with the nw.exe provided with the signageplayer - probably because the default nw.exe doesn't support proprietary codecs. I took the most recent nw.exe from nw.js and I updated the ffmpeg, so now I have an nw.exe that supports what I need. I replaced the nw.exe in the SignagePlayer directory, and everything "seems" to work properly. So if the nw.exe provided hasn't been modified I'm more likely to be successful. If various capabilities have been added into the nw.exe that comes with SignagePlayer, I'm unlikely to be successful. Thus my question:  is the nw.exe provided with SignagePlayer "stock" (i.e. same as comes from nw.js) or has it been modified to add features specific to SignagePlayer?

the nw.exe and the support DLL's from nwjs are unmodified.  we however cannot guarantee that the webkit's support scripts is compatible with latter versions of nwjs as this is still being tested by our devs
