New features and suggestions / Snapshot - Extended desktops
« on: October 14, 2016, 04:21:48 PM »
Is the snapshot mode on the road map to capture the full desktop when multiple screens are being used?

At the moment snapshot only captures the primary desktop

New features and suggestions / Confirmation of updated players
« on: June 06, 2015, 08:48:31 PM »

Currently there is no way to see whether a player has received its updated campaign. Sometimes players although you click update players when saving some might be missed and therefore do not receive their content which can be costly when running an advertising business. Updates might have failed because they have a connection problem at the time, or sometimes i see updates missed because they are polling via html.

Suggestion - maybe to have a tickets / id for each update... a player is then referenced against its ticket and where it should be / how up to date. Once the player comes back online it is then updated...


New features and suggestions / Music within timeline
« on: May 11, 2015, 02:52:41 PM »
Please could you advise whether music within the timeline is on the imminent road path for development?

At the moment to incorporate music into a timeline we have to convert music to MP4 :(

It would be great to just be able to drop MP3s into the timeline / playlist or at least be able to trigger the music player on and off...


New features and suggestions / Content download in background

Hi Dev team,

Is MediaSignage likely to adopt the approach of others and download content in the background instead of using the splash screen / loading bars?

Open source Digital Signage / Development oppertunity
« on: May 03, 2015, 06:45:36 PM »

We are looking to engage a developer to develop a web based front end (similar to the SDK) that can do the following:

User level access / restrictions
Upload and management of content
Create playlists and schedule them*

*Our screens run 64 segments a day (each 15 minutes long). Within that segment there are 4.5minutes of adverts. We need the playlist editor to be able to schedule content based on the number of times it is required to play ie only in 5 of the ad-blocks or all 64. The rest of the time is filled with TV / Live content.

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / Youtube Components
« on: February 14, 2015, 03:20:08 PM »
Can anyone tell me whether when using the YouTube component the video is streamed each time? Or is it downloaded the first time and plays local from the player each time?

New features and suggestions / Weighted Content
« on: January 02, 2015, 10:29:48 PM »
This is a quick fix to removing your MediaAd net

We have a real need for weighting adverts in a playlist that play throughout the day.

Competitors including Aerva allow for a smart playlist to be created where you can weight (assign a percentage you want the content to play) on a daily basis.

The playlist automatically generates itself in your timeline (we run about 3-5mins of adds every 15 minutes followed by LiveTV) without the need to create 60+ timelines a day.

This need stems from the fact that some clients only pay for their ads to play 4 times a day / whilst others pay for 60 times a day etc


SignagePlayer / Multiple players triggered at the same time?
« on: November 23, 2014, 02:50:21 AM »
Has anyone had any success doing this?

We have a large video wall (9 x Samsung HDTVs - Portrait) connected to 3 players each having three outputs.

Total output resolution is 9720 x 1920 (each player 3240x1920).

Has anyone had any great success / experience triggering the content to play at the same time?

The best way I have thought of doing this is to ensure system clocks are all the same then trigger them at a set time - ie 7am....

Player Specs: Gigabyte Brix i5 - GB-BXi5G-760
                     4th generation Coreā„¢ processors - i5-4200H
                     NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 GPU - Running 3 Full HD LED Screens (total output resolution in NVidia Surround Mode 3240x1920)
                     120GB SSD
                     16GB Ram
                     Windows 7 Pro

We have been experiencing an issue where a signage player with multiple screens does not load correctly. Content would only appear on 1 of the 3 monitors, but after a restart of the signage player software it would be fine.

If we allowed windows to load everything (say 5/10 seconds) and then launch the software everything is fine. Must be something relating to Graphics Drivers / Nvidia.

We first of all tried writing our own batch file that would first of all wait 10 seconds then load the player as well as checking to see if the player was running every 60 seconds - launching if it wasnt. This was great until we realised that the Signage controller is required for a number of other functions with MediaSignage as well as checking if the player is running or not.

Plan B which patched / fixed our issue was to write another batch file that launched with the signage controller. The Signage controller would launch the player as normal (which would appear wrong) then we would close the player straight away... signage controller would then restart the player as normal which would then be full screen :D

If you would like to download our patch / work around you just follow the these steps:

1 - Open Notepad
2 - Copy and paste the following text:

@echo off

echo Developed by Reece Pugh - Screencorp Pty Ltd
echo Australia's Premier LED screen Provider
echo Kill Signage Controller on startup

timeout /t 5
taskkill /f /im "SignagePlayer.exe"

3 - Save the file anywhere (such as My Documents) and call it **something**.bat
4 - Create a shortcut to your newly created batch file in your startup folder (Run > Shell:startup)
5 - restart your computer and watch how it works

Just a couple of queries regarding how things are progressing?!

mediaADNET - How is this going?

Background Music Player - How is this going?

Background content download - Is this going to appear instead of the "loading" bar that appears when content is being downloaded? Or to even have the option to skip playing until downloaded as it looks bad on the screen having nothing!!


Just received the windows 2008 server...

what's the generic password windows is shipped with??

Support is offline (im based in Aus) and we only have today to install the server :(
