Hey there, community!
Long time lurker, first (second) time poster here. So I’ve tried out the Linux client and have some feedback that hopefully will be helpful! As I hope this isn’t too long a post, I’ll just jump into it -
Xibo player is -super- sensitive to goofs. Needs more error handling or error forgiveness. Things that shouldn’t matter, matter, like having a new template fail because the background has enforce transitions but a time of zero. I believe the issue is that on creation, transitions come sans-duration which is an error as opposed to using a default (or if null then set to 1000). By this, I mean the background.
Problem. No matter what I do, I can’t get a web browser to display. Using the below code throws an error that “>” is wrong (forgot the exact error but will get). If I try to display it as an html page, same issue. For the love of Xibo, I share with you “datarhmei’s Restreamer” technology! Using this, I can (on android) grab an m3u8 stream, turn it into a webpage restreamed and put on a display with some pretty good quality. Either way, no dice. As the link is sensitive, it’s been redacted, but will share with individuals for testing if you promise to keep it safe
iframe src=“https://someplace.out.there/player.html” name=“restreamer-player” width=“800” height=“450” scrolling=“no” frameborder=“0” webkitallowfullscreen=“true” mozallowfullscreen=“true” allowfullscreen=“true”>/iframe>
Please note that the beginning < is actually there in my code, but the forums hate it all ending > are ok though.
Again, this link works in the android iframe, but not the webpage display for whatever reason, but iframe I can live with. On linux (ubuntu 18.04 on a minis forum box) neither works. The exact error is:
** Message: : console message: player.html @82: SyntaxError: Unexpected Token ‘>’
I’d also love to help test! I can get any log you need, or share whatever info I forgot. Since you admins/mods seem super-active, I LOVE XIBO! We white-labeled your solution and it’s in use in not one but TWO libraries! Digital signage, event boards, tablets by rooms for availability/meetings, it does it all. Thank you so much for a great product!
