General discussion on the mediaSERVER / Mobile Signage Controller
« on: August 08, 2011, 10:15:02 AM »
I have noticed that browsing to on my MediaSERVER redirects me to Further, I can access my local version of the Mobile Signage Controller by browsing to, but attempting to enter credentials in the username and password boxes on that site results in errors.

Three questions:
-Why does redirect to the site?
-How do I prevent this redirection? It is confusing to users and does not seem to serve any purpose.
-What is the Mobile Signage Controller and should I be concerned that it is not working on my MediaSERVER?

Report bugs and errors / MediaSERVER Provider account password
« on: August 08, 2011, 07:47:41 AM »
When running Setup.exe for a fresh install of MediaSERVER, the setup process allows the use of punctuation marks (tested with an exclamation mark !) in the Provider account password field. However, the Studio software will not allow the entry of those characters. I ran into this issue and ended up editing the database users table to remove the ! and regain access.

Just thought I'd make the devs aware...

General discussion on the mediaSERVER / Admin control panel
« on: August 03, 2011, 01:06:13 PM »
The web site mentions an admin control panel that can be accessed from any flash based browser.

Have I missed this feature? How is it accessed? I am currently using SignageStudio to manage accounts.

New features and suggestions / Quotas
« on: January 11, 2011, 01:32:49 PM »
I would be interested in seeing a quota feature for the MediaServer/Reseller offering. Ideally, this would let you set a cap on the maximum storage space used by uploaded content per business. Things like file size upload limits would be nice too.

On the mediaServer side, this could be implemented with Windows file system quotas on the Resource directories, but I'm not sure how mediaServer would react to that.

General discussion on the mediaSERVER / File upload size limit
« on: January 11, 2011, 07:44:04 AM »
Just thought I'd share this with the community in case it benefits anyone else. Our college recently deployed MediaServer for digital signage around our facilities. After some initial configuration and helpful guidance, we have the server up and running. However, one of our content creators ran into an issue with file uploads. He would select the file, import it into the Studio software and hit File save (upload). The progress bars would get to 100% and then either disappear with no file uploaded or error out. The solution that worked for us was to raise the file upload limit in the ASP.NET configuration for the Business web site.

On the computer running MediaServer:
1. Navigate to C:\WebServers\Business\HomeDirectory
2. Open Web.config in a text editor like Notepad.
3. Add the following lines right above the final </configuration> directive (Customize the 524288000 number to suit your needs. This is in bytes):

      <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>

4. Save the file as Web.config to the desktop and exit Notepad.
5. Now copy the new Web.config file on the desktop to C:\WebServers\Business\HomeDirectory (replacing the old file) You may have to confirm a security prompt.
6. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
7. In the left-hand pane, drill down to the 'Business' item under 'Sites' and select it.
8. In the right-hand pane under 'Manage Web Site', click Restart.

This solution has worked for us so far, but follow these instrutions at your own risk. Perhaps someone from MediaSignage could comment and tell us if this is acceptable or if there is a better way to raise the upload limit.
