Is there a way in Xibo 1.7.4 to setup a slideshow of images that could be populated by images from a watch folder local to the Xibo CMS system? I know its possible to use an online site such as Flickr to host images but they don’t have a slideshow function that can be used as an embedded object. I have found a 3rd party site that can create embed code to do this but I was hoping there was a way to to this with an already existing module.
I’m afraid not. You would need to have your content uploaded to the Xibo CMS via the API to have it shown within Xibo, or create a webpage to show the images from a folder (perhaps using PHP or similar) and then embed that within Xibo as a webpage media type.
This is the first time I am using the site. I have been using Xibo successfully for the past 3 years and this is the first situation where I can’t figure out the answer for myself. I am putting it here because it seems to fit. I have created a flickr account for my school and I created a slideshow through flickrit. It shows up fine when I “preview layout” on Internet explorer but it says “can’t access flickrit\slideshow.php” when I play it on the player. Here is the embed code created by flickrit:
<iframe id='iframe' src='//flickrit.com/slideshowholder.php?height=500&width=800&size=big&speed=3&count=100&setId=72157661316109876&credit=2&theme=1&thumbnails=0&transition=1&layoutType=fixed&sort=0' scrolling='no' frameborder='0' width='800' height='510'></iframe>
I am hoping someone can help me figure out why it would play in preview layout but not on the player. It is the same computer. I tried it on a separate computer with an upgraded version of Internet Explorer and the same thing happened.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Does this help… ?
I changed all of the java script settings within IE and made sure I had dotnet 3.5. It is still giving me the error. Are there any settings I can change within the player to make it work?
Try using a webpage media type with the following URL:
You may also need to increase the version of Internet Explorer in use in the Player following these instructions:
I just wanted to let you know that just changing the embed code to a webpage was enough to fix the problem. It came up perfectly. Thank you for your help in resolving this matter.
