Why can't users with the AD-90 and AD-150 use this watchdog? Is it because it's only compatible with Android 4.4 and higher?

I was afraid so... Maybe you can do something with remote desktop (mstsc.exe) and somehow connect to the local machine using remote desktop? This way you might be able to run desktopenvironment inside an application. If you choose to use a VM, this is surely a way to run the VM inside the player. Also, you won't lose your settings when the player crashes, because it is a remote session.

I get why you would prefere the 2 zones, but I am wondering (never used the 'show desktop' before). If you would use the external component and use a command line to show the desktop (if there is any), won't you be running desktop inside a kind of sandbox. So you would run the desktop inside the player? If that is the case, I think you might very well encounter some problems in the future:
1. When the player crashes, your desktop crashes. You will ofcourse enter the 'real' dekstop, but will you be able to continue what you were doing?
2. The desktop plays inside the player, so perhaps you will get some compatibility issues (like not able to start some software)

I don't know if you also manage the player from this very same desktop, but if so, you will be managing the player from inside the player  :o !

Aside from the above, are you able to start explorer.exe using the external app component? Than maybe you are able to use a command line for the shortcut 'show desktop', like when you press Windowsbutton + D. I have no idea if it would work, but it might be worth a try.

I have done this once some years ago for the same goal. I didn't use the MS software, but I ended up using a VM (virtual machine), to play the digital signage on. This way, when someone wanted to order a new Bike (it was for a bikeshop), the seller could just drag the picture to override the digital signage, so the customer could look at it.

I think you can also do this but than you run the MS player on the VM. Unfortunately the MS player doesn't run on Ubuntu, so officially you might need two Windows licenses for 1 device.

As Anoop states, if the videowall is daisychained, it will work. Even though the Android specs might meet your necessities, go for the Windows version on such large installations. The Windows are capable to play more and is just more stable (my experience). I like to use Windows in enterprise environments and android in environments like small retail stores for cost effective solution.

Glad it worked out. Have fun with your product.

I'm not sure what included remote you're refering to, because I use MS software in combination with my own Android players. But I always control those with a Logitech K400 keyboard, which is a wireless keyboard with touchpad. You should see a mousecursor in Android when using a mouse. As Admin already stated, you have to press Connect. After that you can fill in your login credentials (account and password). Than the player will be visible in the station manager.

Do you see any mousecursor popup when using the remote? You can also try any (wireless) universal USB mouse.

I'm glad to hear, you're welcome.

About your next issue I'm not sure what's the cause. Because you don't see a border when you launch vlc through windows cmd line I think the problem is to seek in the settings of the MS software.
Do you use the VLC player in full-screen without any components aside?
If so, be sure that the output resolution of the player, matches the output set in the software. Aswell as the screen division resolution.
If for example the screen division resolution is smaller than your output resolution I can imagine you to get a black border of some kind.

What happens if you replace the external app component for let's say a PNG of 1 solid colour, without changing any of your settings? Do you also have a black border around the PNG, or does the border disappear? If the border disappears, it must have to be something with the external app component settings.

On what player are you using this?

Externall app capture only works on Windows, not on Android. The error you get, is caused because the Signage Controller is not running. Do you use the .exe player or the Adobe Air version? If you use the Adobe Air version, you have to put the signage controller (you can find this in the install folder  I believe) in autorun in Windows. Without the signage controller, you cannot use the external app function. In the .exe version the Signage Controller is baked in I believe. With the Adobe Air version, it is a seperate application.

That sounds very promising  8)

I am aware of the fact the Android player already uses the native built in browser, but this is no chrome browser. The built in Android browser is a pretty incombatible browser (I compared the browsers in this topic: http://script.digitalsignage.com/forum/index.php/topic,4788.msg14026.html#msg14026). Chrome for Android is a much stronger browser than the native Android browser and supports A LOT more content (that's why I wonder if the Chrome will be used as standard browser in the new release).
