Embed PDF in full screen

HI there

I am trying to embed a full screen pdf in Xibo for Android.

This is the code i am using:

    "<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://myurl.menuplan.pdf&embedded=true" style="width:100%; height:1080px;" frameborder="0" scrolling=“NO”></iframe>"

If I allow to scale the layout, the pdf is to small in preview:

If i don’t allow to scale the layout, i get a correct preview, but my Player shows it like on above screenshot.

So I can figure out how to show a pdf on a server full screen on my android player.

Can somebody help me please to get an embed pdf in full screen?

I have checked all the resolutions. player and layout size is set to 1920x1080.

Thanks and best regards!

What CMS and player version are you using please?

1.8 series has built-in PDF module, which I’d suggest in this case

HI Peter

Thanks for your reply.
I am using Version 1.7.9 as CMS and the Player is Android 1.7 Versionscode 63.

The pdf is on a website. So regular PDF upload wont solve my problem.

Do you have any Idea?

Embedding it should work I think, is that webpage available online?

If it is could you send me a private message with the url to it so I can take a look locally?

I am sry Peter, but I can’t figure out how to send a PW, can you please guide me, or is it disabled for new users?

ok, Peter has suggested a very nice way to do it. thx for it.

Let me share here:

just add a website, enter following URL:


  1. replace www.myurl.com/filename.pdf with your URL and filename where the PDF is stored.

  2. change options to “Manual Position”

  3. if your PDF is to small on your screen, just scale the size by typing in the value for zoom under scale percentage, for me 180 worked fine

best regards.
