Studio (Legacy / SignStudio) / World Weather and Days of the week
« on: March 25, 2016, 08:23:54 PM »
Am I missing it, or is there no way to get the full name of the Days of the week? All I can get is Sun for Sunday and so forth. I want it to have the full name.

New features and suggestions / Youtube Component with parameters
« on: April 09, 2015, 06:42:40 AM »
It would really be nice to be able to either add in custom parameters with the youtube component or even add a few check boxes to where we can tell it to include things such as closed captioning. For signage, a good deal of the signs out there do not have audio for good reason, but if we could play youtube videos that have CC, it would make more sense to include them in the content.

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Windows 8 compatible???
« on: May 06, 2013, 02:45:14 PM »
I am curious to hear if anyone has had any success with using Windows 8 with their system. I will probably be getting a copy of the OS soon to test and I would love to hear the pros and cons that folks have been using with this particular OS. Also, Admin, if you could comment as well, that would be great. I know that you will always support Windows OS, but do you currently support and recommend Windows 8 or are we still in the testing phase? Thanks.


Report bugs and errors / Latest release 4.11.28 and Station IDs
« on: April 19, 2013, 08:47:20 PM »
Looks like there may be an issue with station ID Assignments. Spoke with Live Chat support an they too have seen this and are sending information to Developers. It does not look like it effects all accounts, but only some, so some of you may not be affected. Also I was able to get the player to update on the Mac, but I have yet to try a fresh install. I had to recompile the install script to work with the mac.

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / Screenfeed FYI
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:06:28 AM »
Just as a FYI to anyone using Screenfeed. I just noticed that if you are using a SWF feed from them and you hit the "F" key on your keyboard, this will make the SWF go full screen. I was cataloguing it in a folder under resources and when I was typing the word Screen Feed to name the folder, that is when it blew up. I then went to a player and just hit the "F" key while the campaign was playing and it went full screen taking over the whole campaign. This is probably not good for someone who is using their feeds in a kiosk environment, but should be fine in a typical screen display environment as there usually is no keyboard attached to the player.

If you are trying to create a folder name to place your screenfeed assets in and it has an "f" in it, just type the name somewhere else and copy/paste it in the folder area.

New features and suggestions / Color coding used content
« on: January 08, 2013, 05:07:39 AM »
Cleaning up one of my test accounts today, I was thinking about how handy it would be if I could just glance at a resource or Scene to tell if it was being used in a campaign, live or not. Maybe with the ability to give the title of the item a background color or at the very least do the same that you do with the campaigns where you are not allowed to delete an active resource or scene.

I also just noticed that when you delete a scene that is active in a campaign, the asset holder remains on the timeline as if it was a place holder, but there is no way to actually replace it with another asset or scene without deleting it, where you can drag a new asset into a swf on the timeline. Again, this would be very handy if possible.

Report bugs and errors / Content (SWFs) not playing entire length
« on: January 05, 2013, 05:55:15 PM »
I have created a SWF that plays for 30 seconds in the flash player. When placed on the timeline, the time it runs is random. I have tried everything I can think of.

~had timeline set for 30 seconds, resource set for 30 seconds in timeline, resource displays 30 seconds for profile
~had timeline set for 31 seconds, resource set for 31 seconds in timeline
~checked off repeat to fit.....

I cannot get it to play for 30 seconds. I have even turned of transitions to see if that would help. Any other suggestions? Right now, it is looking like a bug. Can we squash it??? Where is the Code RAID when you need it. :^)

New features and suggestions / Alignments for Scenes
« on: January 05, 2013, 10:35:26 AM »
I am not sure if this is a bug or just a new request. for the few things I use the scene builder for, it is great that we can align objects with each other. It would be just as nice if we could also align objects with the stage. If I have an object that I want centered on stage I would have to calculate the dimensions of the object to figure out where to place the object since everything is anchored by the top left point. Thanks.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good programmer that knows what they are doing with AS3 and Flex?

I would like to see the ability to grant departments access to specific timelines. For instance, Each department would be able to manipulate their own timeline within a campaign but not have the ability to manipulate other departments timelines. I am thinking I might be able to create a workaround once the updated network ads returns, but as another option this would really be nice.

On a side note, maybe to get a greater control and great number of keys, the access keys 0-7 would actually be changed over to an 8 bit security key with of course the check boxes representing Boolean on/off keys. This could give us 256 keys rather than 7. Now, I have not actually sat down to think it through so it may bot give us the entire 256, but I am just throwing out ideas. I am not even sure if Air could give us this possibility.

I believe this was covered in a previous post, but I cannot find it.

I know not now, but will we be able to also choose which components are available to our users/businesses? I would like the ability to turn on and turn off different components. Can you please add this to the privileges area?

Report bugs and errors / 4.10 Bug list. I know it is a work in progress
« on: December 13, 2012, 01:08:21 PM »
When I select the "Local Ads" from the Navigation menu and log out, when I log back in, I have to re-select it from the Navigation menu. It will not stay in the sidebar like the other two. Also, minor, but annoying is the default size of the application (Studio) is wide and short instead of full screen. Can we have this set to full screen on launch?


New items found:
- When deleting resources from the timeline, the popup title says "Delete Player" when it should say "Delete Resource" or "Delete Asset" so as not to confuse the user.
- Also when both the Studio and the Enterprise portal are open, we still loose the cursor to the enterprise portal when hovering over a sideline to resize something in Studio.

Does anyone know what to code in AS3 to allow the SWF's to be configured inside of studio? I like how this can be done as in the examples on the video tutorials, but there is no mention of how to create this in a SWF with the exception that we need the SDK. I have built a SWF using FLEX 4.6 that I need to pass parameters to a web service. I would like to be able to create only 1 SWF file and just enter the prams inside studio for each client need as the needs will differ for each. Otherwise I have to build out potentially hundreds of SWFs instead of just one.

Please! Please! Please! Please! Please!

Report bugs and errors / Windows Player Randomly Resets 4.0.89 and 90
« on: October 17, 2012, 05:29:07 AM »
I have noticed that my player has been randomly resetting every so often. It did not start until I upgraded to .89 and .90. I have turned off all the reboot conditions to see if that makes a difference. System is in real station mode.

On a side note, I have been playing with the notification option, but I am unaware of what it actually does as I have had it checked and have never received a notification. Where does it get its email address and what smtp server is it using?

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / HTML5 or SWF?
« on: October 11, 2012, 11:00:13 AM »
Being that you support HTML5, I do not see much push from this group to start using Javascript Animations (HTML5). Why is that? I have tried to get help and tutorials of some of the complex needs of mine and it seems that everyone is moving away from the SWFs and going towards HTLM5. I am not versed in Javascript and it looks like I really should be.

Doesn't HTML5 need a browser to play and therefor need the HTML component to play? If so, I do not like that at all since I would loose transparency and the ability to have different layers since HTML is always on top. So if this is true, then what will happen once HTML5 does take over and Adobe does loose focus on SWFs? I know that Flash is not dead for creating the content, but I am not so sure about the end file of SWFs. I am wondering if the default export will be Javascript/HTML5.

Any insight would be great as I know not what I am talking about, just being a concerned user that has heard a great deal for those who supposedly know what they are talking about. Thanks.
