With Alex help I started CMS v.1.8.2 Docker install under Linux. After the initial fiddling with the CMS firewall, the v.1.8.2 players under Win10 Home 64bit started playing images and video. A couple of additions which I suggest to the hints in Xibo CMS Post-Installation Setup Guide - 1.7 Series :
- Windows Media Player should be installed and activated for XIBO player to work normally under Win OS.
- Under Win10 the library folder may need permission settings, I allowed Full control to Everyone, not all hosts need manual intervention.
Scheduling seems to me not precise and I checked Docker time - it is different from time on host, 3 hours difference:
docker ps -a
CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
6eee150fe459 xibosignage/xibo-cms:release_1.8.2 “/entrypoint.sh” 4 days ago Up 3 days 0.0.0.0:8081->80/tcp xibo_cms-web_1
34bbc9c8afbc xibosignage/xibo-xmr:release_1.8.2 “/entrypoint.sh” 4 days ago Up 3 days 0.0.0.0:9505->9505/tcp, 50001/tcp xibo_cms-xmr_1
docker exec -ti xibo_cms-web_1 bash
/# date Wed Sep 13 12:46:29 UTC 2017 - docker is 3 hours behind
root@6eee150fe459:/# exit exit
date Wed Sep 13 15:46:57 EEST 2017 - tost time 15:46 is the correct one
CMS ADMINISTRATION - Settings: Regional tab:
Timezone (GMT+3:00 Europe, Sofia
Date Format Y-m-d H:i
*** with this setting probably the CMS time is corrected relative to Docker time. How can I check CMS time?
WIN10 regional settings (where player 1.8.2 is installed):
short date: d.N.yyyy ‘г.’ (BG format) short time: H:mm
*** Is there a problem if date&time format in CMS are different from regional settings on CMS host and/or player host? Or I shall change CMS format according to http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/advanced_dateFormat.html documentation? I do not mind working with CMS default format.
When XIBO player is running and I press “i” there is the following text:
LayoutID:33. Runs from 1.1.1970 г. 3:00:00
XMR Status: Disconnected, waiting to reconnect, last activity: 1.1.0001 г. 0:00:00
Is this pointing to some timing problem? In BG “г.” is the abbreviation for “year”. Year 1970 3:00:00 and especially 01 January 0001 0:00:00 is puzzling.
