For some reason, when I embed images from an RSS feed, they won’t display on the Android player. This used to work, but for some reason it stopped working. The image does show up on preview, but not on the Android player. No error messages in the logs.
I tried reinstalling the server, using a different server, using different hardware for the player, using HTTP and HTTPS, rebuilding the layouts, reverting back to stock templates but no luck.
Thank you for the link to your Layout. I have downloaded the Layout onto my Android Player and it is Displaying without issue. All 3 of your Tickers are returning the requested data from your feed, including the images in the main region in your Layout.
Can you specify the actual version of Xibo for Android you are running, just in case it is not the Latest version? Also, what hardware device are you using for your Android Display? Is that device up to date and has a stable network connection?
I would recommend selecting the Displays option in your CMS, clicking the down facing triangle at the end of the Display and choose Edit. Next select the Advanced tab and set a period of time in the Auditing Until field so that you can capture logs from the Display whilst the Layout is scheduled. If possible, I would recommend making sure that no other Layouts are scheduled on the Display so that you can see any errors or messages relating to this Layout easily. You can then view the logs in your CMS under the Log option, to see if any errors or other messages are being generated that would help to locate the cause of the issue.
Xibo version is 1.8.R108. CMS was upgraded to 1.8.12 today. It has a stable network connection. I’m running it on an HP CB1-020ND (Chromebox) with the most recent updates and a TV Box MXQ. Both have the same issues.
The issue you’re experiencing is likely related to the hardware you are using.
Your Chromebox is likely running Chrome OS, which is not a supported platform for the Xibo Player. I also looked into the MXQ TV box, which runs Android TV, which is also not an officially supported OS.
I have included a link below to the recommended Hardware for Android Guide, which provides tips as well as examples of recommended hardware:
Like I said, they both used to work fine. Till one day the player stopped downloading new pictures and only displayed the cached pictures. Here’s a screengrab from a couple of weeks ago, running on the Chrombox.
