I have a webpage with dynamic content that I'd like to display via brightsign on my portrait-mode screen. I've built out the page html to be viewed in that size, and everything loads and renders correctly except for the <video> element in the background. After researching this some more the only help I can find on the topic states that remote videos can't be loaded, only local. However 1) The thread in question that mentions this is rather old and 2) This seems like a serious drawback - to say that you can display HTML5 web content but only local video is at best an incomplete implementation.
That having been said has anyone had any luck or insight on this. I can't even find in the documentation how to load local HTML5 video. The documentation here starts with:
"You can use
<video> elements to play streaming video (HLS, UDP, RTP, RTSP) and local video files." and then says nothing more on the subject of local HTML5 videos - in fact the word local isn't used again on the page.
Any insight on this would be really helpful as I may have to rethink entirely how to accomplish this.
