I have been asked to see if i can get a local / national news feed to be displayed on our TV screens during dinner time. I know how to do it in theory, but am unsure where I could get a nice picture and headline feed from and how to display it.
Ideally i wouldnt just want a text based feed from twitter or RSS feed, i’d like something that i can stick in a media region that displays pictures with headlines.
Worst case scenario i’d like to display the BBC news website inside a media region.
If anyone else does this already, please let me know how they do it.
The Ticker module can display the image from a MediaRSS feed with the text over the top. You could use that?
Use the “Image overlaid with the title” template from the Appearance tab.
I don’t have a good UK news URL, but using the Nasa image of the day feed will show you what it can do:
Feed URL: NASA Image of the Day
Template: Image overlaid with the Title
Duration is per item: Ticked
Gives you something like this:
Sky News feeds work, but the images they provide are really small so the quality is pretty poor:
The Guardian in pictures works too, but their images seem to vary in size:
