New features and suggestions / Support for Local Files in HTML Component
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:22:49 PM »
For offline use, it's impossible to use the HTML Component because it automatically adds "http" to anything that's put in the URL.

Since http is not needed for a local file, I am asking that this 'auto-add' be removed.

Loading firefox is an option, but only needed due to the 'auto-add' in this system.

When ordering videos by size by clicking on the "size" it takes the first number and not the total.

New features and suggestions / HTML Component Support
« on: August 19, 2014, 05:47:01 AM »
Currently, it seems that the HTML Component does not support any type of scripting.

Javascript specifically

It doesn't support yahoo.com on a small size, as it is dynamic and will use scripting to make the pages.

As the modern internet moves forward, the HTML Component is left behind -- ironically with the icon of HTML5

Please update the HTML Component to support modern websites.
Using Firefox is not an option when the web site needed is part of a scene in rotation with many other pieces of content.

New features and suggestions / Access Keys for "Channels" (zones)
« on: July 22, 2014, 11:45:35 AM »
Under Channel Properties, it would be nice to have access keys.

This would provide certain channels to be 'locked' and limit customers messing with things like background images, masks, and other content that is for visual effect only.

As a premium request, those channels would be hidden from the customer view as well.


New features and suggestions / Shared Resources for customers
« on: June 02, 2014, 05:23:57 PM »
We are constantly adding and creating new resources.
While we use a template system, this doesn't work for adding resources for older customers, so we have to add them to each customer independently.

When it comes to custom scenes that have various components, this is very time consuming.

Shared resources that pull from our website.

Enterprise level accounts point 'shared resources' to a specific website or folder on their web server or HTML page
It would have to be formatted to meet the needs of MS, but this would allow a true sharing of resources that can be updated

HOW v2
Enterprise customers receive access to an interface where they can upload content to MS servers
The upload process will create a thumbnail of the resource and a folder based on the users preference


I'm not really show how this can be done with custom scenes that we create, but a shared resource of images would be amazing!

What do you think?

SignagePlayer / can the web component call a local html file?
« on: April 27, 2014, 06:58:42 AM »
When I use the web component in testing to try to call a web component this URL


is changed to


shouldn't the web component take any file, and not append http automatically?

SignagePlayer / web browser choices
« on: April 26, 2014, 02:36:49 PM »
I'm using several third party applications that are web-based within the system.
firefox does not work well with these apps

I tried to configure ms to open internet explorer in kiosk mode
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -k
but that (space)-k on the end doesn't work.

If you do 'run' C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -k
it works.

Does the external apps component only work with firefox?

I haven't tried chrome yet.

New features and suggestions / Skip Bad URLS or Content
« on: April 25, 2014, 01:07:07 PM »
Current with MRSS feeds, from outside sources or within MS, the URL's are not always accurate or can change from the host without notice.

Sometimes it works in the browser because the browser will follow the URL if programmed that way to the new URL. MS does not.

It would be a great tool to provide a way for a 'resource call' to timeout after a certain amount of time if nothing is returned.

This would also be useful for the External Resource component. If the resource isn't there -- what happens? Does it keep looking?

When it comes to MRSS -- if the URL is invalid or has trouble loading, the system either shows a blank space or a loading line.

A pulldown option for timeout would be ideal, either on the account level or on the resource level.

Thank you.

SignagePlayer / screenfeed
« on: April 19, 2014, 05:33:53 PM »
We are using the screenfeed digital sign broadcast package

Recently, with no change on our side, the channel that is supposed to be playing the content just stops.
Everything in other channels keep player and upon 'restart' of signage player, it starts up again

I checked the timeline
I checked the campaign

I cleared the cache
I loaded on another machine

I rebuilt the campaign from scratch
I checked the hardware and drive space on the computer

Nothing pans out as an issue. But yet, this happens.


New features and suggestions / Access Key in Channels (Zones)
« on: February 12, 2014, 01:33:57 PM »
I've seen this listed on many places, but never on it's own

Access Key in Channels (Zones) (the technology is already there, just used in other areas like resources)

1) We setup our systems for customers and don't want them to mess with the background images, etc. This hides it from them.
2) When adding co-op / partner content or advertiser content directly in one area of the system, hiding the channel provides the customer access, without the ability to mess with that one channel
3) Somethings are better left to the pros

Is this something that will be added shortly?
Or is this something that you can offer some guidance in how to add it using the open source stuff?
Or is someone out there working or willing to work on this for a price?

(PS> I still think it would be cool if there was a like button in this forum so you would know what features are important based on polls)

I have a media player that I purchased from ds with a media box about a year ago.

The HDMI is not working on reboot.

Hardware diagnostics show that it is there, without issue, but connected -- it does not work after reboot.
I checked the hdmi cord with another computer. no issues.

VGA works.
I thought about doing a windows update -- it has not been updated since 2011 - but windows says that an admin must do this.


Report bugs and errors / Preview Scenes in Timeline isn't accurate
« on: November 01, 2013, 07:02:45 AM »

We provide our customers with coupon templates. When they are previewed in the timeline, the text is not seen.

Anyone else experiencing this when scenes are previewed?
Are other components not showing also?

Currently, you can either choose one station -- or if upon save you toggle the check box -- all stations will refresh.

Feature Request:
Select individual stations to control at the same time, ie. refresh, reboot, update -- some but not all stations

This is helpful when you have multiple devices and changed a couple but not all. To push an update to those that need it, but not all

Resource search in the main folder does not pull up content in subfolders.

You have to actually click on each subfolder
