Wanted to see if anyone out here is having issues with the Twitter component as it relates to displaying pictures.  It works displaying the text but pictures from the user do not show up.

Report bugs and errors / Re: Google Calendar date fields not customizable

I am also waiting for this to be fixed.  What I am doing for a workaround is putting the date on the first line of the description/  Not ideal but it is a temporary solution...

SignageStudio / Looking to hire
« on: September 23, 2015, 10:53:08 AM »

I am in need of a developer to create a custom component.  I would like a component developed that would allow a customer, that does not have access to the media signage software, to update the custom rss text feed in their campaign.  I would also like this same functionality for images as well.  I realize that I can accomplish this utilizing some of the existing components but i need something that can directly access the specified campaign parameters.  JSON would be he preferred technology so please contact me for more details...

SignageStudio / Re: Scrolling text remote updater
« on: September 21, 2015, 06:11:14 PM »
Unfortunately, I am not a developer and after watching the video I am still unclear on how to accomplish this.  If there are any developers out in the forum that knows how to build a custom component that will allow a customer that does not have access to the studio pro application a process or tool that will allow the customer to update the campaign with text, pictures or video would be stored on my server, please contact me.

SignageStudio / Scrolling text remote updater
« on: September 17, 2015, 09:44:29 AM »
Looking for more advice from the forum on a feature my customer wants...
The customer wants to make changes remotely to the scrolling text feed in his signage campaign.  The customer does not have access to the software so it would have to be one of the components that allows the customer to interact with the presentation using one of the other tools.  The catch is that the component needs to update the scrolling text at the bottom of the screen.  Does anyone have an idea of how to accomplish this?


SignageStudio / Re: Countdown timer reversed
« on: September 15, 2015, 08:04:01 AM »
hmmmm...never thought about doing that. So are you saying create the google sheet with the calculation, load it into google drive, and use the google drive component?  Not sure how you can use the html to point to the document...

SignageStudio / Countdown timer reversed
« on: September 13, 2015, 11:16:45 PM »
Does anyone know how to use the countdown timer in reverse?  My project requires displaying the number of days since the last accident on the screen and the countdown component works the opposite way to show days counting backwards.  Is there a way to display the number of days since a particular date?

SignageStudio / Dynamic Weather
« on: September 03, 2015, 10:56:01 AM »
I am looking for help in figuring out how to make a dynamic weather scene that will have an image that changes with the weather conditions. For example, if it is raining, a pre-loaded image of rain displays in the background or if it is snowing, an image of snow displays, etc.  I realize I can pay for a service (screenfeed) to supply it however I wanted to find out if anyone utilizing the media signage software had figured out how to do it.

You are correct in your explanation of this feature.  However, this has also happened to me many times as well.  Just more of a nuisance but since someone brought it up, I can tell you my experience...When you select multiple images to copy that are in a sequential order on a timeline and paste them on to another timeline, they do not paste in the same order that they were originally in.  Not sure if it happens all the time or how many items causes the problem but my workaround is just to copy them one or two at a time and that seems to work okay.

New features and suggestions / Re: Export mp4 video file
« on: August 07, 2015, 08:47:07 AM »
Thanks Anoop and Criley for your input...
In most cases, I use media signage for my customers for all the reasons you both mentioned as it is a selling point for me as well.  My feature request is really to address the resolution sizing problem that media signage has related to html and embedding.  I cannot send a sample of my work to a customer utilizing the html or embed code because I use scenes and text in my campaigns which do not scale in size to different screen resolutions.  If I have created a 1920 x 1080 campaign (with scenes and text) and send the html or embed code to a customer to view, they must view it at 1920 x 1080 to see the campaign elements displayed in the correct positions on the screen.  If the customer wanted to display the campaign on their website in a size different than the resolution that the campaign was created in, I would have to re-create it with a different size (when using scenes and text) so it would display correctly on the website.  If the html or embed function offered this, the mp4 option would not be needed.  Also, some customers do not have internet access at the location of their sign (remote location) and their needs do not require dynamic content.  Would be nice to be able to put together the campaign using the same software so I can eventually move the customer over to an internet enabled configuration when they are ready.


New features and suggestions / Export mp4 video file
« on: August 06, 2015, 11:55:07 PM »
It would be great to see an export campaign to mp4 feature.  Currently, you cannot export any campaigns other than using the html or embed functionality.  With these, they do not size text and scenes to fit on different screen resolutions like videos and images.  Additionally, having this export feature will allow users to create digital signage content for customers that don't want an online managed application.


SignageStudio / Saving campaign as an mp4 video file
« on: August 05, 2015, 08:50:31 AM »
Studio Pro users, want to get some input on how to save campaigns as video files.  I would like a way to show examples to potential clients as well as I have customers that want me to create digital signage presentations but they only want the video file to use.  Since studio signage pro is flash based, the only way to share a campaign is to provide the html link.  Unfortunately, this link will only size properly (when using scenes, text, etc) when the viewers screen is the same resolution as the campaign.   Just want to know how users are handling this...


Report bugs and errors / Re: Browser Component Problem
« on: July 13, 2015, 05:59:48 PM »
just tried it and it seems to be working for me.  The only issue I have with it is everytime it loads, it flashes the webkit logo and there is a bit of a delay to display the page. I have been experiencing some weird issues as of late and after consulting with chat, we are finding that the issues are related to a specific account.  I would recommend creating a new test account and try it there to see if the same problem occurs.  Worth a shot...
