SignagePlayer / Android - Live Audio Stream
« on: November 17, 2014, 04:48:21 AM »
I would like to put a live Audio stream on in the background.

At the moment, I am using a shoutcast stream, this is what I have tried:

Creating an xml file containing the shout cast stream and using the mrss component - works fine on windows and iOS (although iOS opens media player) Android, does not work - apparently, this is due to the http header provided by shoutcast.

Using a flash player to connect to the shoutcast stream with the HTML component - this works for windows but not for Android or ios (Flash player in the native browser is no longer supported in Android)

Using the audio tag in html 5 works fine on windows but on Android, you need to manualy click start as the autoplay tag is ignored and then it actually crashes signage player anyway

Using JWPlayer and the HTML component seems to work, but unfortunately due to an Android and iPhone restriction it is not possible to auto start the audio

Using an external app such as VLC, would be an option, but external apps arenot supported on Android.

So, right now, the only option I can think of is to encode in RTMP format as audio only and use the MRSS component to play the audio.

If any one has any ideas, or has been able to accomplish this, assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have spent hours and hours on this!!

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Android Software Stack
« on: September 13, 2014, 07:56:55 PM »
I thought a few folk might be interested in our current hardware/software setup.  It is of course a work in progress right now and thoughts, ideas etc for the community are most welcome.

Android Hardware: Rooted Generic Rockchip based quad core TV Stick


Signage Player
Signage Controller
Auto Reboot (I know in theory signage controller software should do this)
Hide Status Bar App (note, root required) fullscreen app seemed to work ok on some devices but not all
WiFi auto login app (for the sites that prompt via webpage for internet login)
Auto Start (I know signage controller should do this)

Additional thoughts:

Kiosk Lock - prevent any other applications from running and password protecting the OS
Monitoring app. to augment MS monitoring, email alerts, network history etc
Remote control of player
Remote screen shots

Maybe some of these features are already in the MS Roadmap for Android?

I have to say, I am extremely happy with the MS Product line and Support and gladly recommend to others reading this post.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

I have a number of Android players (4.11 rockchip based) all are connected directly to the public internet. Some never show a status of "green circle" when playing, others will show green circle for perhaps 10 minutes then show red.

I only get this problem with Android players.

Could this be a latency issue? I am based in thailand using the default server (which when setting up a new player I haven to press the connect button 4/5 times for it to work)

Any help appreciated.



SignageStudio / Multiple Time Lines / Screens Advice Please.
« on: August 16, 2014, 06:39:05 PM »
I have 10 stations, each station plays 2 rotating time lines.  One of the time lines is common to all stations, the other is unique to each station, each station is running its own individual campaign.

If I wish to update the content on the time line that is common to all stations, currently I would need to update the timeline in each campaign ie 10 different changes.

I am sure there must be a way of organizing my stations and timelines better to reduce this regular updating (especially as content changes weekly) so that I only make the change in one place.  Any ideas, thoughts and pointers greatly appreciated.
