1.7.3 client is running multiple instances… It is almost as if it launches a new instances for each region? and then crashes when too many instances are running? The crash occurs which switching to a scheduled layout… that had previously loaded fine that session.
Further Info: throws a .Net Framework error: Failed to create Browser. We are using Chrome Embedded option.
In that case enable mouse support on the Player, load your layout and then you should be able to interact with the webpage containing your ActiveX content and see why it’s not loading.
It’s just whatever version of Internet Explorer you’ve nominated so if it works in native IE it should be working in Xibo too - assuming you’ve made the registry edit in the correct location (especially if this is a 64 bit machine as you’ll need to make the edit in the 32 bit section of the registry)
Also ensure you’ve got the webpage media set to Open Natively as that should be the “purest” way of opening the webpage within the Xibo Player. The other modes will introduce iframes which may break whatever you’re trying to embed.
OK. In that case I’d suggest then your embedded content isn’t working.
If you enable the mouse, then view source on the region with the page running, then you can save the page from Xibo, and then open that in IE to confirm that it’s doing what you expect.
My guess is the code you’re embedding is assuming that the activex control is being run from the camera itself rather than a page located on the C: drive - but you’ve given so little information about how you’ve set it up I’m really making educated guesses.
A detailed overview of exactly what you’ve done is the only way this is going to progress otherwise.
well browsing to it from client in IE to a local Intranet server works fine, but XIBO still not loading it…
The View Source confirms it is the correct file - included a line on the webserver version that only it has…
All Xibo is doing is opening an IE browser control and loading your code in, so I’m afraid it might be that you have to tweak that code to get things working. Without having an Axis camera here to work with I’m afraid it’s not something we’re going to be able to help with
