Open source Digital Signage / Re: SDK - Check Station Status
« on: April 15, 2018, 02:24:52 PM »
I've been looking into actually using the SOAP services (they are a lot easier to use in C#), but the SOAP services actually use encrypted payloads. For example:

It takes encrypted data as input, but obviously there is not documentation on what method you are using to encrypt the data, and none of the open source studios appear to be using the SOAP services, so I can't figure it out that way. Can you provide any information about how I should be using this service?

Thats fine. I actually ended up using netmon while I had the signage studio open and was able to capture the proper commands for all of the functions.


Its clearCaching. Just stick netmon pointed at the signage studio program and you can see the various commands supported by the StationService. You can either use sendCommand.ashx or the StationService.asmx located here:

Is there any chance you can provide a list of valid commands?

I see the rebootPlayer command, and have worked out the Begin and Commit commands so I can save changes I make. I can also see how to send remote events, and screen captures. Are there other valid commands, and can you provide a list, or will I have to continue basically going through the existing SDK and figuring it out that way.

I have made some decent progress taking apart the Pepper.js SDK and writing a .NET equivalent over the last few days (finally had time to come back to this), and actually can pull this information correctly now. I've also used it to build a tool so that we can mass-change campaigns and output boards (very useful when you have hundreds of boards).

Is there any documentation on the SOAP API? So far everything I've been able to get working has been by basically parsing through the pepper code, monitoring the post/get traffic on a test account, and working out how things go that way. Obviously some of the WebService stuff is self-documented, but things like RequestData and SubmitData seem to have no documentation, anywhere.

Hi There, I've gotten a handle on the Pepper (or is it Jalapeno now?) SDK, and the JavaScript functions are quite easy to use and expand upon. The number one thing I was looking to do with it was the build out a means to change all stations on Campaign A to Campaign B without having to touch each one (we have quite a few boards and it gets tedious). This was easy enough to do, but one thing we also really would like to show on our Help Desk's status boards are down boards. It is already a node.js application, so integrating the SDK would be very easy, but for the life of me I don't see anywhere the connection status is presented. Given StudioLite shows it, I'm sure its somewhere, but I can't find it!

On another topic, I've been pulling apart the code to figure out the underlying API, and have managed to port some basic functions over into a .NET library; before I go too far on this, has someone already ported the SDK to .NET by any chance?

SignagePlayer / Node.js Component Question
« on: September 27, 2017, 06:20:01 AM »
I'm not sure this is the correct forum to post this, but I'm wondering two things:

1) Is it possible to get the webkit component to actually respect the width/height and x,y assigned? I also put this in the package.json file which didn't do anything, though it did respect the width/height I assigned.

2) Is there any documentation about how to go about creating the settings accessible in the studio itself?

SignagePlayer / Re: JSONPlayer - Automatic Updates?
« on: April 14, 2017, 07:27:26 AM »
So here are my new settings. I added a common channel.

Random order: OFF
Repeat to fit: ON
Respect content length: ON

JSON Player:

Items path: channel.item
SlideShow: OFF
Order (Random): OFF
Interval (Play videos to completion): OFF
Transition pool: None
Duration: 1 minute

The problem now is that it isn't updating the information. So no more flicker, but also no update when prices are changed.

SignagePlayer / JSONPlayer - Automatic Updates?
« on: April 13, 2017, 11:10:28 AM »
I have a JSON Player on my timeline which is being used to display prices. These are all fed via a service running on the point of sale which generates a JSON file with the prices on demand. Is there any way to get the JSON Player to automatically check for changes and update?

We have already tried setting the JSON Player to run for a shorter duration - 10 minutes - which does work, but this creates a situation where the prices fade out and then come back. Having the prices disappear and then reappear every time it updates, even if there are no changes, isn't an acceptable solution for us. Is there way to check for changes and only refresh the display when there are changes?
