We have 2 separate embedded media that we would like to display. The first is a slide show that should run for a 1/2 hour (1800 seconds), the second is a video we would like to play(400 seconds). I can’t get it to work correctly on the computer I work with or the display. The code for the slide show is:
<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1Tb2Gm01unMBy4O7lITHmxk2Az-cR9mPHjjjtNAOXXxQ/embed?start=true&loop=true&delayms=10000" frameborder="0" width="1280" height="749" allowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true"></iframe>
Shouldn’t it switch the display after the 1800 seconds regardless of the loop of the slideshow?
What CMS and player version are you using please?
If those two items are in the same region, then the first item (6 slides) should stay on the screen for the duration you specified and then proceed to the next item (video).
There was a bug with loop=true parameter on windows clients, but that was fixed in earlier versions - https://github.com/xibosignage/xibo/issues/635
I’m sorry Peter, but where can I find out what the CMS is? Our IT department set it up for us. Please Advise.
Any idea when they did that?
It should say it on CMS login page and also after you’re logged in, from the left panel select ‘About’.
If you don’t see left panel, then that would imply you have 1.6 CMS version, which would need upgrade to 1.7.9 as soon as possible (same for players).
ok, now it’s making it to the big screen, but it doesn’t play anymore. Very confused here.
Our CMS version is 1.7.9 on the computer I work on. Not sure about the big screen. That’s IT’s Department.
It would be good to check player version, if it has earlier version installed it might be affected by the bug I mentioned.
When you open player options, you can click on Help->About and it will show you player version.
Other than that if there are any other issues with layout playback, it could be good to see status window on your device.
press ‘i’ on your keyboard while Xibo has focus to show status window.
