Video software support

Hi All,

I just got a little question :

Actually to play videos through xibo, the client use windows media player. Is that possible to use something else ? Maybe it’s in the roadmap to use another software ?

The reason is that I got some movies which doesn’t work well with MS media player but all it’s ok with vlc.

Thx for your answer.

(and sry for my english, I m french :smile: )



It is not currently possible to change the media player used with Xibo for Windows. There is a new Xibo for Windows Player in development, which will handle media files differently from the current Player. When more information about this Player is available, we will update the Xibo Blog:

In the meantime, you will need to convert the videos to a different format/codec so that the Media Player can read them. If your videos are working in Media Player, then they should work in your Layout.

My apologies for any inconvenience.

Many Thanks.

ok. I will try to convert.

Anyway thx for the job done on xibo !! :slight_smile:

Have a nice day
