We are currently in the process of changing our old, selfmade signage system over to xibo. I installed the newest CMS docker image and prepared a test device (windows player) for our marketing department so they can start building some layouts and get familiar with the CMS.

Now they contacted me with the following problem:
They built a layout using a pdf document (60 pages, 260mb) that should change page every 11 seconds

This works fine in the preview, but the windows player seems to skip some pages!

We also ordered a DSCS9 device, so i tried the layout with it and it works even less. The device flicks through all pages in seconds and then just displays black.

Any Ideas why this happens?
