SignageStudio / own SWF file only works then run as 3rd party
« on: April 06, 2014, 01:33:54 PM »

Hope there is someone clever out there that can answer me on why the SWF file I have created only works if I tick of the 3rd party mark, when uploading it to the signage cloud?
It sort of beats the purpose.

It is build using Adobe flash Builder and just displays images from a webserver in a random order.

It works great but having to tick of the 3rd party mark removes it from the normal flow and wraps it in an HTML element that makes a solid square box that runs on top of every ting else.

I really want it to be able to run like any other content.

I have tried all other combinations but it seams that it will only run if the 3rd party tick is set, else it just dosent show up.


SignageStudio / Using events to change text color?
« on: March 17, 2014, 04:24:40 AM »

Any one know if it is posible to tricker a change of color on the text in an XML element?

The scenario is that I am building a scene with XML elements containing text and numberfields.

and the goal is that the numbers could be black as standard and if they get larger then something like 10 ten the number changes color to red.
I have the posibility to add the text color as an attribute in the xml file, but is there any whay to get this read in?


Open source Digital Signage / Re: Development of Custom Component
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:25:54 PM »
I got told about the Open Source Studio Lite.
and that you could develop against the Cloud service using that.

Now I have looked at it and I still can't find any indication on how to upload the SWF file in the Signage Studio so I can get to the settings from within the studio.
I have a lot of choices when uploading the SWF 3rd party, Trusted, flex module and finally Component.

But since you have removed the ability to download the samples I have no way of knowing if the SWF file is build to specifications.

And I can't wait till sommer!

As per information on your website and videos and carefully going through the documentation,  I have promised my client that the module would be no problem and I have payed a team of developers to do it.
So are you going to refund all that and compensate my client? I would think that it was fair since you say one thing on your website, in the videos and in the documentation. But in reality you sell something that you are now telling me is not posible!

It is a very simple component that takes a path for a local share and randomly displays the pictures from that share. It looks great as a stand alone air application but now we are stuck on getting it into the Enterprise version of the Signage studio, so the client can set the properties of the component.

Open source Digital Signage / Development of Custom Component
« on: February 19, 2014, 01:44:13 AM »

there are Video about an SDK that is not there, and as I learned when contacting live support, is no longer supported.
When I look in the FAQ  I can see that Yes I can develop custom components but it does not give any usefull information how to.

Then I looked through the documentation and found the section on the API and SDK.
Most of it is about the API, a little about the SDK, but still no usefull information.

I now have a team of developers sitting developing a component for a client, who have already payed for the development, and I have to pay the developers for there time.
It's a great component that works great as an Air application but when I put it into the signage studio as an SWF it is just blank and I can find no information anywhere on how to integrate the component into signage studio so we can use it!

If I try clicking the Develop tab in the menu on the website it just send me to the start page.

Live chat then told me, no problem but you need to look at the open source signageplayer lite, so I send my developers to look into it but we are still stuck!

How do I get a custom component into the signage studio and access the properties?

General discussion on the mediaCLOUD / Re: Extract calendar data from exch
« on: February 19, 2014, 01:33:29 AM »
We are working on a simular project.

My guess is that you need to use the XML component and have a backend service that uses the EWS framework to pull information from Exchange and save it to XML

As I am not allowed to post external links (Can't figure out why someone would place such a stupid rule on this forum) I am afraid that you will have to take the long way around.
on MSDN at microsoft you can search for the EWS API, If all else fail, lets try and find a way you can give me your email address and I will email you the link.

There is also a PHP conversion of this on github called php-ews-master

So far we are leaving the signage part out of it, just getting the data to display on a website.

So far we are only working on getting the pressence data from exchange and integrate that in our Asterisk IPPBX system.

New features and suggestions / Re: Enhanced Scheduling
« on: December 16, 2013, 03:22:44 PM »
As the 2nd ½ of 2013 is drawing to an end is there any news on the scheduler?

I would be happy If I could just have a secuence playing when no timeline is scheduled, that would be a great start.

I hade the fact that I have had to make my 2 latest installations using Scala for just this one issue. Scheduling content.
Now I dont own a SCALA setup, so I have had to park my clients at another Company, now that is just bad business.
Luckilly the client still pays me and I pay the other Company for the Space (They owed me a favour), but I will never de able to move them back.

Pleeease put this scheduling thing on the top of your list, I don't care about 3D or more components as long as this issue is not fixed.

It would be a nice feature.

BUT, I would be happy if I was just able to Schedule a single timeline.
So that I could have my normal secuence playing and then just Schedule one timeline to take over at a certain point in time, and when the Schedule ends the Campaign would just continue on its normal secuense.

It's sort of what we got now, I just want to be able to use both and not have one or the other for a campaign.

Are there any news on his one.
I can see that the post is originally old, Any road map?

The scheduller is clunky to Work with. I have client that runs a fixed sequence and then once in a while they would like to jump to another timeline on a certain day.
To set this up in the scheduller is dreadfull to say the least.

It would be great to have the scheduler add to the sequence instead of one ruling out the other.

only problem is that VLC creates a very large cashe creating a delay that gets longer over time and thats not good when the stream is a live stream

I'm trying to incorporate an entrance IP camera into the signage the RTSP stream actually comes directly from the IP camera.
I have actually now made the ultimate workaround.

I have setup a new webserver that puts the RTSP stream in an Iframe and then put the html page into the Signage campaign, it does the trick, but now I have an extra server running. :-)

New features and suggestions / A Balnk screen display
« on: December 04, 2013, 03:36:40 PM »
It would be nice if you could set a Default timeline /Emergency time line, that would always be downloaded to the client so that if there is no content in the Campaign it will play that Default timeline until it gets new content to play.

That way you can avoid that total failure of having a blank screen showing no content.

or if anything just the ability to asign a video to a station, so that it will loop over that when there is no content to display.

Just a Little need feature that would make Digital Signage so much better.

Report bugs and errors / Can't get Campaign to loop?
« on: November 26, 2013, 01:01:58 AM »
Dont actually know if this is a bug in studio or player or me  :-\

I have a Campaign running with 2 timelines and as I understand it the player should just loop forever between the two timelines?
But it plays timeline 1 and then timeline 2... and after that I just get a Black screen, it doesent start over from timeline 1.

Kind regards,

That was well hidden.

There is no video for the Message Component or any mention of the Message Component under Technology and Signage studio.

I would have never thourght of looking under technologi and Signage Studio on the Main Commersioal Page.
One would expect souch things to be under Support and Documentation, or if the documentation is not updated then at least here in the forums.

I have in the mean time found out that the problem is not missing documentation but inconsistent naming.

The Message Component when you install it, becomes the Chat component in the Signage studio

SignageStudio / display custom html with transparent background
« on: November 14, 2013, 03:53:17 AM »

I don't know if this is posible...

I have some html content that I want to display in a campaign, but I but want the default white background that is displayed in the HTML5 Component, but I want the background to be transparent so that the actual content will flow better in the signage presentation and not look like something that is placed as a clumsy box onto of the screen.

Hope I make sence.

If this is already posible, can someone point me in the direction of the solution?

kind regards,

Yes I tried that:

I have a URL looking like: rtsp://
When I insert this in the external video component it automatically adds http:// in front
and it fails


Was was just looking over the different Components you can install, but they are very porly documented.

It would be nice if the documentation coevered in details the different components, some are shortly covered in the docs under components, but it is hard to find what you are looking fore, when it all is just scrolling and scrolling, Some are covert in more details under the Enterprice section with there own section.

But some components are not mentioned any where.
What is forinstance the Message Component that I can install? What does it do and how can I use it?

It might just be me that can't find it, I have looked in the docs and tried searching the forum without any luck.
