SignagePlayer / Re: SignagePlayer 6.4.10 crash and restart every few rotations
« Last post by genopsyde on March 06, 2023, 03:53:16 PM »
So it appears that there was still 1 piece of content that was formatted in a conflicting way.
When they changed the schedule tot he new content, the crashes stopped.
I have no specific information about what the incorrect format was unfortunately, since the marketing department never narrowed it down for me.

At least if it happens again, I'll see if I can slowly build a test campaign using their live content, and add 1 item at a time until it crashes.
Studio (Legacy / SignStudio) / .exe+External video=stuttery video
« Last post by panoramix on March 06, 2023, 03:51:28 AM »
I have a timeline where I have two screens, on one I have a video with the External video component and on the other an .exe with the ExtApp/Capture component.
The video looks stuttery, as if it were at 10fps.
No matter what .exe you use, vlc, chrome..., it always looks bad.
The video is stored internally on the hard drive and I called via internal server, ISS from windows.
I have lowered the video resolution but the problem continues.
I have tested it with an i7+RTX3070,32GB Windows 10 PRO.
Any solution?

Thank you so much.
SignagePlayer / Re: Error dialog box "NO ..."

it looks like you are using the older APK on android 8 or later

use the APK installer instead: https://galaxy.signage.me/Code/Install/apk/6.3/CloudSignagePlayer.apk

SignagePlayer / Error dialog box "NO ..."
« Last post by arcadiabarcade on March 03, 2023, 02:56:19 AM »
Every time my Android SignPlayer begins to play through my designated scenes, a square error dialog box pops up in the middle of the screen with an OK button.

I cannot read the error. Whatever it says beyond "No" does not fit in the visible portion of the dialog box.

The only way to clear it is to plug in a mouse and click "OK." After awhile, it reappears. This is frustrating.

Any theories or help? Thanks in advance!

if the issue persists, try deleting the cache folder and then re-register the player.  to delete the cache folder, first stop the player then press Win+R to open the Run Command box where you will type %APPDATA% then press enter.  you will be redirected to the Roaming Profile folder where you will locate and delete all folders that start with SignagePlayer (where there are usually 2 of them).  after deleting those folders, re-register the player - see if this helps.

if the issue persist then it might be your resources - check the image and video file's resolution, dpi (for image), fps (for video) and bitrates

I recall that I've cleared the cache a few times, but that was before I had the marketing department reformat their content.
I've cleared all the caches and will monitor for crashes over the next few days.
Since they show up in event viewer, it should be easy to see if it's happened again.
SignagePlayer / Re: Cannot install watchdog trouble parsing file kitkat4.4

first thing to try is to issue a command Clear Caching from Studio - go to Stations, on each station, highlight and then click on the Clear Caching - this should remove unused cached data and restart again

if the issue persist, it may be one of the content

best regards

SignagePlayer / SignagePlayer 6.4.10 crash and restart every few rotations
« Last post by genopsyde on February 23, 2023, 11:26:55 AM »
I have about a dozen HTPC Windows 10 devices running 1607 (so that I can meter the connection and avoid full screen prompts from Microsoft)
They are all installed via the DigitalSignage Downloads page.
They are all running SignagePlayer version 6.4.10
They are all running Adobe Air version

They've been all running great for the last 5-10 years, until about a month or two ago.  Roughly December 2022 or January 2023.
I'll walk by the screens and they player will have crashed to desktop, and restarted via watchdog.
If I stand and watch long enough, it will do it again, but it's not the same image each time.

I've confirmed that the images are JPEG or PNG, and they are 1920x1080.
Every TV by now has died and been replaced with a 4K capable Smart TV, and Windows is set to 1920x1080 @ 100% Screen DPI.

Is there something that has changed recently that is causing SignagePlayer to keep crashing on multiple computers?
