Introduction

Selecting "Signage Player" as the role type allows administrators to launch media files (videos) on a continuous loop using the built in signage player. Media files are added using the "Add File" or "Add Dir" button. A variety of sample content is provided for selection under /content/media/ directory. In order to add new content to the playlist, media files can either be copied into /content/media directory or user can define a local directory as an implicit playlist.

    • All media files should be saved in /content/media folder; in order to appear in this list.
    • To add a playlist directory, click "Add Dir" button; specify the playlist name and the complete path of the existing media files directory.

    Please Note: Only users with the root privileges can modify playlist directory.

    Once session container is created, video wall can be "mapped" or assigned to the session by simply dragging-and-dropping the video wall to the desired session container.

    Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
