Custom RSS Player
« on: July 27, 2019, 10:09:41 AM »
I am trying to test the feasibility of using SignageStudio for building a Calendar of Events for the organization for which I work.  The calendar is available via an RSS feed from Springshare's Library Calendar product.

While I have been able to get a news feed to show using the RSS News component, I have had no luck with the Custom RSS player option.  Does it require something extra in order to function?

the RSS and Customer RSS reads from the RSS Tags <Title> and <Description>.  if your calendar rss does not use these, the RSS will not work
