i am not sure if i understand the way Xibo is downloading the content.
Here is the normal way,
- When a new content is assigned to a layout or player, player will download the content, store it in it’s hard drive and will display it as necessary. Please notice, content is downloaded only once but it will be downloaded again if it has been removed from the player/layout at some point but re-assigned.
Here is the Xibo way,
- When a new content is assigned to a layout or player, looks like Xibo player is downloading the content more than once and if the network connection is slow, it keeps downloading it forever and in the notification error, the size of the video keeps getting bigger and bigger and gives an error at the notification center by saying file is downloaded too many times.
Aren’t we supposed to continue from where we left if the network is slow or connection is down?
Any ideas how this could be fixed?
downloading a content file more than once is indeed not healthy, it will cause too much work for the player and it will also corrupt the hard drive after some run, it will specially cause freezing which i have already seen way too many times.
