I have powered VGA splitters & HDMI splitters all in use with no lockups....are you using "POWERED" splitters? If they are passive - that could be the cause.

I have used RF Modulators to perform that same task and in full HD resolution over COAX, tuned in on the HD channel of your choice on the TVs.
There are MANY Coax Modulators out there; however these from ZeeVee are affordable.

HDMI Version

They also have a VGA version


New features and suggestions / Apple-TV Application

Any NEWS on the APPLE-TV Application?
    We are all missing a ton of screens connected to Apple-TV boxes that could be used.
Please update us on your progress.
Kind regards.

P.S. I can also be a "TEST BED" with an entire school connected with Apple-TV boxes if necessary for some BETA testing.

Report bugs and errors / Re: Google & Send/Receive Events BUG
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:19:16 AM »
Can you answer me this question?
   What is the field path "On your end of the Google Drive API" to the Image file.
As example: when placing a JSON item within the Google Drive component, and we want the Title or File name, we insert "title" or "name" into the Field path.
And that works....
What is the proper "Field Path" for the image or file object from Google Drive?

Please advise, thank you.

Report bugs and errors / Google & Send/Receive Events BUG
« on: April 04, 2018, 05:29:59 AM »
I believe I have found a BUG in the Google Drive component & It is stopping me from achieving my goal for a client.
Goal is - Google Drive list of image files on the left of screen (File names only), when an item from list is selected, that image is "Loaded" or displayed on the right of the screen. Pretty simple....but it is not working.
Here is the setup:
Make a large full screen scene, and use the Google component to display a "LIST" view of a directory down the entire LEFT 1/3 of screen
This will display only the "NAMES" of the files.
This will be used for selecting the desires item from the list view & sending a "$selectedItem" event to the JSON Viewer in the next step

Add in the "JSON Viewer" in that same scene to the right of the list
Have this receive the "NAMES" event
IF....you make the viewer show the NAME of the file that is selected on the left....all works properly & the selected name on the left shows up. on the right.
Now....If you change that viewer to the OBJECT (Meaning image) instead of the name.....nothing shows up on the right when selected.
However we know it's getting the command, as we can see it work with the file names.
I have tried many different parameters for the send & receive events as well as the Event Provider (id, name, object, image, file, weblink, linkview, and more)
Obviously the file name is referred to as "NAME" or "TITLE" as both of those work when sent & received.
I'm not sure what the "IMAGE FILE" is referred to on the back end of the Google Drive component on your system, that may be the glitch to this.
>>>> Now here is the curious thing that makes me think there is a BUG stopping this.
if you REVERSE all of this & make a LIST of the IMAGES themselves down the left of the screen (Meaning you see all the images in list view)
and then the  Viewer on the Right snows the NAMES or TITLES of the files when selected - it works!!!
so......I need some help on this, Please advise.

The JSON component when used as a LIST does not have a transparent background OR adjustable background at all.

If you insert the JSON component into your timeline & use it as MANUAL, SLIDE SHOW, or CAROUSEL it has a transparent background & you can see through to your other layers. (This is good!)
If you use it as a LIST, it gets a default WHITE background that is not adjustable in any way.

At minimum it would be beneficial to adjust the color of the background to your list.

New features and suggestions / World Weather - Current Conditions
« on: March 20, 2018, 08:09:11 AM »
Since the change over to "WORLD WEATHER" component....the "Current Condition" has been removed (Hidden really).
Our customers like seeing the current condition such as "Windy" "Humid", "Sleet with a chance of Snow", etc....
Can you please add that back into the drop down selection?
You can currently ADD it manually if you type the following into the field path


That being said the data is there....just not accessible.
Thank you,  8)

WebKey.cc is my choice for MediaDROID devices as well. It's the only one that doesn't seem to get in the way of the presentation.

Let's talk about "ROOTING" for a moment to clear the air.
I'm not sure there is any "VOID" of warranty or service with using root access on the MediaDROID (Maybe ADMIN can chime in on that??).
Your not "ADDING" anything to the device to gain root access, Root access is already built in to the devices.
Look at it this way: This is the equivalent of WINDOWS using "ADMIN" rights.
The same way when DigitalSignage asks you to you to "Run As Administrator" when installing the SignagePlayerApp.
You are doing the same thing with WebKey.cc on Android. (Run as Root User = Running as Administrator)

I hope that helps.  :D

New features and suggestions / Re: Station Update Scheduler
« on: March 06, 2018, 05:55:43 PM »
I think your missing what we both meant.
     If a player losses internet connection OR restarts by accident during business hours - it will "AUTOMATICALLY" pull all the new resources without us being able to stop it from doing so.
I understand that the way the system is now - resources are pulled to the player as requested in the timeline and fully downloading when call on to play for the first time.

Can you make a "PUSH ALL RESOURCES TO STATION" function that will allow us to manually "PUSH" all new resources to the Signage Player at a set time of day?
I would even accept this function if it pushed ALL resources in the studio (even if they are not needed in the timeline) to the Station.

Please put that on the "TO DO" list

I second this amendment!!
         I need this TOO!!
We currently play music on the same device in the background using "FIREFOX" or "Internet Explorer".

It would be GREAT to have the built in "Music Component" be able to handle a URL instead of physically uploaded MP3 files.  ;)
Our streams do NOT play well with the built in Browser or HTML either.

I would like to 2ND this suggestion!!!  ;D

I actually need this functionality NOW and for a future clients.
We can't have new content being downloaded during "OPEN" business hours for some of our businesses due to bandwidth limitations.
As it is now - we take a "CHANCE" if the player reboots during the day & pulls new data then we get caught.  >:(

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / Re: NEED Google Drive Help
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:50:43 AM »
    Thanks for chiming in!
I have the videos playing in an ordered list from Google Drive, but my client want to be able to "SELECT" a specific video from a list & that videos plays.

Were you able to do anything like that with the YouTube component?

I need a way to create a Video On Demand list.
The user can select a video - it will then play that video to completion (All videos will vary in length)  - and return to the list.
The database of videos will be added to & will be a GROWING list of videos as time progresses.

If anyone out there has done this please share some brain power for me....I'm stumped on this one.  :-\
Kind regards,
