SignagePlayer / Signage Player freezes
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:12:08 AM »

I have a problem with several Signage Players at clients. After a while the players freeze (not synchronously) so the content doesn't update.

Have any of you experienced something similar and found a solution?

Thanks in advance!

SignagePlayer / Clients burning thru data in notime
« on: June 30, 2017, 01:53:14 AM »
Hello all

Have a few clients running their station thru a mobile internet subscription. Within a few days, maximum a week, their gigabites are gone used up on SignagePlayer data only.

Have read inhere about a few people using a program to control the dataflow but have been unable to find anything usefull.

Any recommendations about what to use to limit the data traffic ?   

The data files are small but if they reload on every cycle it adds up.

Guess they could turn off their connection when the machine has been turned on and is up and running in the morning. But do not want the screen going black when the internet is cut. As seems to be a problem sometimes.

Any help is much appreciated.



SignagePlayer / Problems showing in html5.
« on: March 23, 2017, 03:16:26 AM »
So have a client who has a link to https://kluboffice2.dbu.dk/output/infosystemMatches.aspx?clubid=1021     that i need to show thru the player.

But the html5  feature wont eat it. Guessing its the "https" beeing the problem.

So tried doing an iframe of it and showing that. same problem .


My browsers have no problem seeing them, but the player does..

Is there a cool fix to make it show or am I forced to use the extApp to show it ?

regards HVL

SignagePlayer / Small Player window after a while!
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:36:01 AM »
Hello all

Have a client with a bug I havnt seen before.

Then machine normally runs fine but after a while it does this


If I log on to the machine with teamviewer, run it full screen and then tab in out of the Player it goes back to full screen and works again without any problems..
So its not the Player that crashes.

Not really sure where to begin on this problem. If its a player bug or a windows feature I need to turn on/off.

And was wondering if others have had this problem and maybe found a solution..

Currently running win7 and version 5.0.68 on the machine.

thnx in advance.



SignageStudio / Iframe auto scroll loop!
« on: February 07, 2017, 12:26:09 AM »
Hello All

So I am trying to get and Iframe of google calendar to auto scroll for for a set amount of time. Before it refreshes and starts over.

http://hvl-gruppen.dk/mediasignage/herfoelge/gcal.html    is what im trying to scroll but cant seem to get it to work.



Code: [Select]
* IFRAME Scroller script- © Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code

//specify path to your external page:
var iframesrc="external.htm"

document.write('<iframe id="datamain" src= "'+iframesrc+'" width="1200px" height="400px"

marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" hspace="0" vspace="0" frameborder="1"


Code: [Select]
var scrollspeed=cache=2

var initialdelay=500

function initializeScroller(){
dataobj=document.all? document.all.datacontainer : document.getElementById("datacontainer")
setTimeout("getdataheight()", initialdelay)

function getdataheight(){
if (thelength==0)
function scrollDiv(){
if (parseInt(dataobj.style.top)<thelength*(-1))

if (window.addEventListener)
window.addEventListener("load", initialiazeScroller, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload, initializerScroller)

Have been reading thru these. And feel there is an answer somewhere in there. But cant get it to work.

Anyone inhere that understand it better than I do, and can give me an idea of how to set it up so it works ?

regards Hvl

So a former employee where i work talked to the support around august last year, about html5 not working anymore to show

"https://booking.sport-solutions.dk/index.aspx#/weekCalendar?chainId=1119865&centerId=1119868" .

The provider of the Calendar updated their javascript to something more complicated. And it stopped working.

The support said you where working on an improved version of the Html5 component. That would come out in jan. 2017.

Is there an update on that ?

At the moment we are using ext/app firefox to show it. But the html5 just runs smoother. Especially if it has to loop between different components.


SignageStudio / Trouble showing Xml Format, help vid not much help!
« on: December 20, 2016, 06:58:36 AM »
Hello all

So have client who gets sports schedule in an XML file that im trying to show on their screen.

Been trying to follow the help vid. but the values shown differ from then ones i get.

"http://hornslet.halbooking.dk/feed/holdliste.asp?pid=01"   So when he does his 'burger.(@name=="ChickenBurger")' Im not sure how to set it up.

Can it be done with the code im getting or do I need to find other way ?

Also tried to do :


Where I converted it and put it on ftp and then thru the Html feature tried to show it.
But size is huge and cant figure out how to downscale it.
Prob some CSS script but not very good with that.

Now the best thing would probably be to get the first thing working since if the Xml file gets new info it will auto-update and it should take care of itself.
But if not possible I could live with the 2nd solution :)

Any help is much appreciated


SignageStudio / Setting up Google Calender for others.
« on: December 12, 2016, 05:01:21 AM »
Hi .

So I am managing multiple screens for different clients. Who all have different setups depending on their needs.

But one problem im having is setting up their google calendars.
What i´m looking for is a way to setup a scene that will run a full view of their calendar with current day and events at the top, and days to come downwards (Agenda).
Not really interested in showing different events during the week, just want an Agenda with all to come.

Been trying to make it work with them making the calendar public and setting up an Iframe on private ftp and thru that link making it show (making a Calendar scene with Html and in that putting the link to the Ftp.. But for some reason I get a white frame that shows nothing or it looks like its about to load something but never gets there and jumps to the next html. (But when I do the preview in Signage Studio, I see the calendar just fine. Problem comes when it has to load it on the Station.)

I recently also acquired the Enterprise edition hoping it would make it easier to setup. But thats not the case ;)

Have been trying to play around with the Token you get when login in with signage.me at Gmail.. But cant seem to get it to work properly.. And not even show a preview.

Now my question(s) is:
Do I need the Token from my customer to make this work or is there another "easier" way to just make it show the Calendar?
Or can it be done with Iframe I just need to set it up right ?

Been trying to find vids or forum posts about it . But nothing pops up.

If anybody could direct me to a good description or has an idea about what im doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

SignageStudio / Customer wants Excel in presentation
« on: August 16, 2013, 05:22:48 AM »
Hi friends,

One of my customers is a sports club. Needless to say there are many matches every week for them. Every week the owner is able to log onto his clubs site at DBU.dk (danish football association) and download an Excel document showing the upcoming week's matches. If needed I can upload an example of such a file (basically just a table of matches, dates etc.).
Until now I've allowed customers to manually enter text into their presentations through a simple online CMS-system that edits html-documents I'm using as HTML components, but this customer is getting tired of having to enter every match and info every week and unfortunately the CMS-system doesn't allow him to c/p the table; now he comes to me, asking if there's any way we can find a solution to this problem - I don't know  the answer...
The scene division he wants it to be shown in is 750px x 408px.

So now I'm asking you; is there an easier way to implement the information from the Excel document unto the presentation? 
Please let me know if you're missing some information or anything...
& thanks in advance for your time!  :)


SignageStudio / HTML component to update hourly
« on: March 05, 2013, 11:31:34 PM »

I was wondering whether or not it would be possible to somehow set the refresh rate of HTML components?
I've set up Facebook in a scene (since I had to crop the site), and now it automatically updates itself daily -
but I would like it to update on an hourly scheme. Is that possible?


SignageStudio / HTML component roll as credits
« on: March 04, 2013, 02:55:04 AM »
Hi friends  ;)

I have been enabling some of my clients to themselves add text content live to their presentations.
I'm using a simple online HTML-editor (which one shouldn't mean a difference). I simply assign an HTML document to a screen division, and let them edit the HTML document (which has some preset settings - e.g. the size. Now one of my clients asks me if it is possible to make a screen division in which he himself is able to edit the text, but where the text rolls as "credits" after a movie..  ::)
The only way I can imagine this being possible is to simply construct a scene that "moves" as shown in some of your guides. But this way the size of the HTML-document has to be preset, and therefore the idea behind having this "credit-like" text is really non existing. What would be perfect, is if it somehow was able to adjust to the size of the document, so that when there's a lot of text it rolls through all of it, and if there's only a single line or two it only rolls through them. This way it won't roll over a lot of empty space, given he does not have a lot of text.

Is this even possible? Enlighten me, please, I'm really curious about this one.
Thanks in advance  :)


SignageStudio / Rugged corners on pictures
« on: June 06, 2012, 02:21:50 AM »

It seems like even though we export our ads to the exact size of the screen division they're being played in, they still appear stretched/transformed? We have no borders enabled.
Any suggestions?
