SignageStudio / cant set interactive in scenes
« on: March 27, 2014, 11:12:57 PM »
I have watched the video several times and I cant get this to work.  This is a must have please help.

Ok I make 2 scenes first scene has a picture and a label I select the picture and under definition I select make interactive and give the event a name then I click off of the picture onto the scene bg and go to events of the scene I make a new event and I grab the cross hair tool and drag it over the picture and I see the event name show up in the box but when I let go of the mouse the box goes back to being blank. I can select the scene I want to jump to when I drag it to the goto box it showes up in the box and stays when I release the mouse but the pic will not so it does not work because the pic I select to use as the button will not stay when I use the cross hair tool????? I have tried with both a jpg and a png.

I am using version 4.12.38 of the studio

This is very important as without this function the system is very limited for me.

I am really getting frustrated with this system I was planning to go enterprise next month but I have had so many issues already that it looks like I may have to go the expensive route and use something like scala but I really dont want to do that as I believe in what mediasignage is doing and love to use programs that are not locked down but in the 2 weeks i have been playing with this I have yet to have anything work other than just a basic digital signage campaign that just plays through the timeline content and even then I have had issues with the fades and moves of the content not working correctly. As of right now there is no way I could use this system for clients as I would be worried that it will fail me and lose the client.
Ok soak manually typed in the event name for the picture and it saves it but when I test it on the player I get a hand when mouse over the picture but it will not go to the 2nd scene like it is suppose to.


SignagePlayer / scene transitions issue
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:50:56 PM »
I have a scene that shows up upon mouse click it has elements that are suppose to slide in but they dont they just appear.

Anyone else having this issue?

tried it on desktop player and my iphone and both of them just appear they dont slide in.

on the desktop version they do slide in the first time but then just appear everytime after that.

Iphone I know has issues but the desktop player should run this correctly.

I have the newest versions of both the design studio and the players.

I really want to use this software but it seems everytime I do something theres issues and I cant have that in the field.


New features and suggestions / signage studio without internet
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:08:54 AM »
It would be really nice to have a version of the signage studio that i can use without an internet connection.

One that can be used on all op systems even IOS.

I have designed a few things and when I went to upload it locked up had to restart the studio and start all over again.

So it would be nice to be able to design everything and save it and then upload and it and it take all the assets and what not that are used with it when you upload that way if it locks up or anything happens you can just restart the program and upload again without having to redesign everything.

PC and Mac First then IOS and android that way we can do things on tablets when in the field and vacation and upload later.

Just my 2 cents.

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Other players
« on: March 25, 2014, 07:47:33 PM »
Just wondering what people are using for players other than the ones media signage sells. What kind of pricing and quality also.

I just saw on linked in a player for 4k displays for $399 I believe the company was nuvola.

To bad the max res is 4096 through media signage I know that's 4 k but not if you wanted to make a 4k wall with multiple 4k displays

SignageStudio / Cant log in through web version
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:20:41 PM »
Ok so I just tried several times with 2 different accounts to log into the web version of the studio. I am not at my computer and wanted to do some stuff to show someone and I cant get in.

I spoke with live chat and they verified that the account and password was correct and said they can log in but I can not.

I even tried to reset my password and it said that account does not exsist WEIRD.

I just logged in with one of my accounts to the forum to post this message and it let me.

i do notice that the username (email) and the password blocks on the forum put everything in caps anything to that for the web studio log in????

Anyone else have issues with the web version of studio. Its not super impoortant at the moment but in the future I will need access through the web version as I will not always be at my computer to be do something or make a change may need to do it through web version on a mobile device (simple altering of timeline etc...)

SignagePlayer / kiosk issue
« on: March 23, 2014, 08:05:18 PM »
Ok I built a campaign that has 2 timelines first time line has rss and a flv second time line has rss and a swf that i made.

Here's the issue on my iphone 4s it plays time line one and then goes to timeline 2 what I want to do is loop time line one and on mouse interrupt playtime line 2. I went into kiosk mode and set it up however in the section for select timeline to play on mouse interrupt it says show desktop and I can  not put anything in there. I am not an enterprise user is this why it doesnt work?

Also neither of the rss feeds are showing on the iphone and when the swf plays (its a simple image gallery) instead of being static until you select the thumbnail image it is scrolling through all images super fast it works on my computer so the code is right but it freaks out on the iphone.

Help please as I am trying to set this up as a demo to show clients when Im in there office.

SignagePlayer / Kiosk on mobile
« on: March 19, 2014, 06:46:58 PM »
I just watched the kiosk video again and I have a question with the player being on a mobile device.
I know that on my iPhone 4S and I believe all mobile devices if you touch and hold on the screen it opens up the window to start, stop the player.
Which well isn't good if your using mobile for a kiosk type thing.
Also when you setup kiosk you can input a password that well you can't actually input if the kiosk player is a mobile device.

So how do you get around these 2 issues?

I am just curiouse I don't have any real need for this other than using my iPhone or iPad to demo for a potential client. Most times I would think a pc or one of the players media signage sells would be used but good to know if I have a client need for a mobile kiosk.

SignagePlayer / Iphone question
« on: March 16, 2014, 09:25:00 PM »
I am new here and just installed the player on my iphone 4s and it plays great no problems so far.

The question I have is when I push a new campaign to it from my laptop it shows the digital signage logo for a sec as the campaign loads.

I have the free account but will be getting the enterprise edition soon and wanted to know if it shows the digital signage logo anytime you push a new account to the players on enterprise or just the free version.

thanks for the info.

SignagePlayer / Send output to another programs input?
« on: June 25, 2013, 05:45:52 PM »
I am wanting to know if it is possible to send the video output to another programs video input instead of to a monitor?

The reason I ask is we are doing projection mapping and I would like to be able to use media signage to push content to the projectors.

I know I can send content to projectors thats easy but often we project onto non flat canvases for example 3 walls at the same time from one projector or onto a custom shaped backdrop. I need to be able to use our projection mapping software to set the content onto the individual areas (which is what it does and does it well) but I want to be able to push new feeds through media signage software so i dont have to drive all over the state updating content on our projector jobs.

So is there a way to take the output from the signage player and send it to the video input of my projector mapping software?

The projector mapping software allows all kinds of inputs from cameras in real time, flash (and action script 3 capable) as well as videos, stills and a lot more.

I figured I could go video out through graphics card 1 to a video in card to live feed to the projector mapping software out through graphics card 2 to the projector but that seems like a lot of hassle and hardware and lots of room for bugs.

Any ideas would really like to beable to offer this to lots of different clients. As of now we do short runs of projector mapped ads and it is all setup with our equipment and then we come back a week or so later and take it away so its really just big events. I know if we could do this on a lower cost less man power, cheaper smaller projectors (ie push content etc after a set it and forget it type setup) I could get more people to go this route and no one intown could touch us.

Thanks for any input and sorry for the really long post by a newbie.
