Great work on all those bug fixes!

...I know the dust hasn't even settled yet but...

Where's the Transition effects...

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / ETA to transitions
« on: August 11, 2009, 06:54:01 AM »
 ??? my partners are pushing us back to dynasign. 

Why? Because, as marketers, they don't care of the technology behind it.

They want Action, pizzaz and wow factor.

Signage without transitions have very little oomph.

What we can produce here is a slideshow, not a presentation right now.

Tell me at least when we can expect that functionality please.

Studio (Legacy / SignStudio) / Podcast
« on: July 22, 2009, 06:41:09 AM »
When will we be able to choose a podcast of our own.

for instance, we'd like to play a local radio station podcast feed.

The URL input box is not editable, so only the 5 pull-downs are available.

What we want to do is share Screens, resources, Scenes in the Reseller-master account so that they are sharable to all customers.

what exactly can be shared? As we see it now, only resources have the 'share with everyone' checkbox.

yet, new customers start with a complete campaign.  Resources, Scenes, Timelines (helicoper stuff) setup as a default for new customers.

Please tell us how to do that as well.


or do we have to re-create every single screen layout, and Scene for every single customer?


New features and suggestions / transitions
« on: July 20, 2009, 07:27:25 AM »
I simply cannot state this more emphatically...

Not having motion transitions is killing our presentations.

I'll do without most other upgrades, but not having any motion-based transitions really hurts.

Our competition has transitions and believe me, customers notice when its not there.

Please consider an interim release.

as a white label reseller:

the new customer confirmation email has no content that identifies the reseller name.

what was received:


please click on the following link to activate your new account:


it would help immensely if the reseller name is included in the subject line.

instead of the more generic: Digital Signage: Activate your account now,
subject: [business name] Digital Signage Account Activation Confirmation Request

You recently submitted a new account at: [business name]
Please click the link below to confirm your email address and activate your account.
<click here>

Thank You
[business name]


btw: when this email was received, it was identified as potential spam by my outlook filter.

I gotta admit, when i first installed the airPlayer and this program called 'watchDog' was getting installed too, all my alarms went off.

While I may understand that the 'watchDog' utility simply periodically 'pings' the Player to check its status, and if its not running, to relaunch it. 

Others are most definitely not going to understand this; and the others i refer to are my potential customers.

NO ONE wants a 'watchdog' program installed onto their computer. Period.

So it makes it all the more frustrating when I have to explain that its not a watchdog in the sense that most interpret it to be, when it could soo easily be avoided by renaming it to something more application specific.

How about: PlayerAutoLaunch, ChannelWatch, PlayerGuardian or anything that better identifies the utility with what it actually does.
'WatchDog' could be any general utility, and as such, is interpreted to be an activity watchdog monitor.  Not Good.

Report bugs and errors / client files organization
« on: July 16, 2009, 07:35:58 PM »
how do i as a business that produces campaigns for other businesses keep the resource files for each business seperated?

and where exactly do i place public resources that I am to call upon for every business's campaign? like our company logo.

sadly, right now, its all going into one big glorious resource pile and is quickly becoming unweildy.

New features and suggestions / keeping the user base informed
« on: July 13, 2009, 05:24:07 PM »
I thought i had read somewhere in here that the ability to copy a campaign was coming out in the .7 release.  Course...i cant find that now.

I now think it would be a great sticky topic to keep a non-contributable thread about upcoming release enhancements.

As a white label reseller, you can appreciate how sensitive we are to the inadvertant direct association to our Digital Streaming Source (MediaSignage).

So you could imagine our shock when using the station reboot tool, that a 5 full second Media Signage Logo appearing on our clients display!  :o

Please tell us how we get our own Logo To display instead.

Cheers and Thanks

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / news ticker refresh
« on: June 29, 2009, 07:54:39 PM »
I've a quick question about the rss news ticker.

will the stories within the rss feed update automatically?

lets assume the screen runs 24/7 wihout a break. will the stories get updated?

Report bugs and errors / Air Player Freezes on video first frame
« on: June 16, 2009, 08:20:14 AM »
using a FitPC, wireless, output to TV Monitor 1280x768.

off we go to the client with tv and computer in hand to demo the campaign.

for some reason all flv videos stopped on the first frame.(air player)

repeated calls back to the main office (me) and i had no idea the what, why or reason.

can anyone suggest a potential reason/solution for something like this?

(however crappy, though, it did play in the web version.)

if timeline has mutltiple screens and the remove spacing tool is used.

all resources within the timeline that are assigned to the 2nd screen are repositioned back to the 0 offset mark of the entire timeline, not the start point of the 2nd screen.

while this may sound trivial, its a major pain in the ars, after you've gotten used to using the tool. which is quite handy, especially when inserting new resources/scenes into an already tight timeline.

logically, if you choose not to reposition the first element in any channel timeline would fix it, although the slick fix is to observe what screen that channel is attached to, and set its start point to the screens starting offset.

Report bugs and errors / 2 screens causes layering to fail
« on: June 16, 2009, 06:04:36 AM »
first screen in timeline has 5 channels with first(0) as background behind other channels
second screen has 1 big channel.

first screen plays for 5 secs (in quadrans), then single channel plays for 5 secs (full screen). all works perfect, until...

the timeline loops and starts over whereby the layering of the channels within the screen get mucked. the background channel (0), covers up all other channels.

Report bugs and errors / motion transitions not working in air player
« on: June 16, 2009, 05:40:45 AM »
setting layout to dynamic and changing x,y coords in point 1 to say -100,-100

then point 2 at 0, 0

in preview, label moves fine into position, but in AIR player, no transition occurs.

am I doing something wrong here or does it not work that say?
