For most applications, we recommend using BrightAuthor:connected, available for download for Windows, Mac, and as a web-based Google Chrome application.
Note: BrightAuthor and BrightSign Network can still be used to manage and publish BrightSign players. No end-of-life announcement has been made for BrightAuthor, BrightSign Network, or BrightSign Network Enterprise Edition by BrightSign. Refer to this article for updates on end-of-life announcements.
If you wish to play content in a simple looping playlist--without interactivity, remote scheduling, or day-parting capabilities--you can publish content directly to the player using these steps:
- Place your content on the root folder of your SD card (e.g. "SD:/").
- Turn off the BrightSign player by unplugging the power adapter (or Ethernet cable if the unit is being powered by PoE).
- Insert the SD card into the player.
- Turn on the player by reconnecting the power. The content will begin playing after a few moments.
Note: Content files on an SD card will play alphabetically in a continuous loop.
