is there a chance that you would improve the background music player so it would be muted everytime when the resource with audio is being displayed?
Like it would be only the background music for resources without audio.
Kind regards

You can set the duration of timeline to 24:00:00 and use 'repeat to fit' option. You wouldn't have to care about the duration of timeline no matter how many images you would upload.

General discussion on the mediaSERVER / Re: Managing many campaigns
« on: December 01, 2016, 11:44:39 PM »
hey,thanks for your thoughts.

Collection component forces equal length of every resource. We also have to care about the length of a whole component (maybe if it would be the only one component on the timeline it wouldn't be a problem). We use it in some cases.

Every solution you mentioned has some limits we want to avoid. Maybe excluding API.
Is it really possible (with API) to build all these things I've mentioned before? The apps that would work simultaneously with StudioPro?
Like I could add some video at the end of every timeline in every campaign VIA api and 'remove spaces', then see the these changes in studioPro?
That would be amazing. I know some basics of JS but not enough to easly use your API yet.
Is here someone who already played with managing the content on the timelines via API?

General discussion on the mediaSERVER / Managing many campaigns
« on: December 01, 2016, 05:36:14 AM »
we've got quite big number of stations and different campaings (usually one campaign per station).
The more stations we have got the more difficult it is to manage them - especially when we want to display content on all of them.

Let me explain how every campaign looks:

We've got a single 24h timeline with 'repeat to fit' option enabled.
We cen easly add single video to this timeline, use 'remove spacing' option and that's all. We don't have to change the length of the timeline and so on.
We make sure that all videos and images on single timeline do not surpass 6min length.
For example we can have 24 videos 15sec each (that makes 6min of content - perfect).
That means every piece of content on the timeline is displayed every 6min.
We've got a great control over timeline. We can set which video comes after which and so on.

When the problem appears?

Let's say we've got 50 or 100 stations and we want to display some video everywhere.
The simplest scenario is that we put the video on every campaign(timeline) and use 'remove spacing'. Quite time-consuming.
But what if we want to swap this video by another? We have to delete the old one (that leaves empty space in every timeline) and put new video over there.
A lot of work - again.
When we just want to stop displaying this video - again we have to remove it from the system and remove spacing on EVERY SINGLE TIMELINE.

But there is a whole 'scene' system - why don't you use it?
Scene is a very helpful tool - but not a perfect tool. We obviously use it alot. Let me explain what are the problems with scenes:
Obviously you have to manually add the instance of the scene to every single timeline (some kind of initialization).
When you want to swap the content inside of the scene it is very easy. You don't have to edit every single timeline.
When you want to change the length of the scene - that is a problem. You have to manually edit every instance of the scene on every timeline - a lot of work.
When you want to stop displaying the content inside the scene: again you have to delete instance of scene (and remove spacing) on every single timeline.
You cannot leave the scene empty. It causes the empty screen on every player with instance of that scene.

But there is a whole 'adnet' system. It is so powerful and you can easly push new content to many players at once. Why don't you use it?

To be honest we're not convinced to adnet at all. First of all many of our stations have got older version of signageplayer ( i know it is bad, but we've got problems with updating it remotely - a lot of them just crash. We don't have a teamviewer and/or similar tool on all of our stations). That already exclude adnet as a solution.
If we'd like to put all the content via adnet component we would lost the concept of timeline. We would no longer have a view what video comes after another one and so on. It seems a little bit 'non-deterministic'. Sometimes we have to have a total control over what is going on on our timeline. One single 24h adnet component wouldn't give it to us.

So these are the problems we've got while using Digital Signage system.
First of all guys tell me please if you are facing these problems too and/or you've got some solutions for it.

What would help us?
How about 'global remove spacing' function? One click to remove spacing on every timeline of every campaign.
When you delete the scene there is [deleted scene] component in place of every instance of deleted scene. It should be also automatically deleted (with the global remove spacing option).

Would it be possible to create some new interface for adding content?
It could be similar to scene, but we could be able to select all campaigns/timelines from a list (for example list with checkboxes). Instance of that scene would be automatically pushed to the end of selected timelines.

With mechanism like that we would be able to easly add/edit/remove/replace content on all/big_number_of stations and that is our goal.

Please let me know if there is something unclear.
Kind regards.

I am also looking for a solution of this problem.

We want to add a background music, but we have to mute it during video with audio.
We don't want to set events for every video with sound. We're looking for some easy to implement solution that will work automatically.

Has anyone already solved this problem?

Kind regards

SignagePlayer / Re: Proof of play

PoP set by default for every resource (an an global option of course) - that would be something!

Indeed, we turn this option off on every resource.

Open source Digital Signage / Looking for a developer
« on: July 06, 2016, 01:29:15 AM »
Hello there,
We need some custom apps associated with DS system.
We're looking for a developer who is familiar with DS api/sdk.
We'll pay for your job.
Currently we've got one project to be done (we'd like to have an automatic snapshot Wall), but in the future we might have more.
Kind regards,

I'd like to refresh this topic.
We want to do exactly the same thing as blackfox123 did.

@blackfox123 - did you manage to create your small app ? Could you share it with me ?

Does anyone have a sample of complete code to get snapshot from a station ?


We've tested at least 3 different sticks (both win8.1 and 10).
All of them have the same problem: lack of Daily Wake Up option in BIOS.
Performance is smooth ( in our opinion).

Did you release an update you mentioned ?

New features and suggestions / Proof of Play set by default
« on: April 27, 2016, 11:23:32 PM »
We've got a huge number of stations, resources, campaigns etc.

We also have to create raports for customers very often.

We came up with an idea that you could create a feature that set a Proof of Play for every instance of resource/component by default (i.e. resource name + campaign name).

More precisely this is not something that we want. This is something that we NEED.
Setting it manually is a terrible and very time-consuming thing.

I would appreciate if you could do something more than put in on a feature request list.
We've got an enterprise account.

Please contact me (i.e. via email) whether it is possible or not.

Kind regards,

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Windows 10 tablet kiosk mode
« on: March 17, 2016, 03:34:41 AM »
According to Microsoft's   windows 10 " Shell Launcher for Classic Windows applications" tutorial ( you have to google it,  am not allowed to post external links here)
it is possible to set up signagePlayer in KIOSK mode on windows 10 (pro) tablet.

I am totally newbie in coding, so could you tell me how should I modify the script ?


Internet Of Things / Re: Problem with sending events
« on: September 21, 2015, 04:02:18 PM »
Ok. Everything works fine.
That would be great if signagePlayer could react to events sent on localhost (, not only normal IP.
Is it possible to fix it ?

ps. I can't post my C++ function here (because i've got a warning that I can't post any URL here). If anybody wants to see it, just send me a message.

Thx for your reply.
I tested it again aaaand
(this time player asked me for some additional windows permissions)
it worked with curl commands :)
Maybe just a restart of a player was the key.
Now I just have to send the same request from my c++ app.
By the way... are there any C++ examples of cooperation with SignageStudio ?
I can post my own solution when I'm done.
