HTML 5 page host on local windows computer

Hi ! 

Is there a way to display an HTML page which is stored on a basic windows directory ? I run on an XD234, firmware 8.0.94.

I used as URL :
file://192.168.1.1/C:/User/adhall/ad_1.html

192.168.1.1 => IP address of the windows machine
C:/User/adhall => Folder directory on W10 machine
ad_1.html => html file

The network sharing is activated on windows and network connection is good. Does Brightsign only support web or local storage html page, not local network ?

    You may need to use HTTP vs File:

    http://192.168.1.1/.......

    Also, if you have a locally controlled DNS and your BrightSign is using that DNS in the network setup you may be able to use an intranet pc name.  We typically run WAMP on a Windows machine, then run it as a local server.  You'll have to set permissions locally in the apache virtual host to allow your local network access through http port 80.  Probably your Windows firewall port too.

    Clear as mud?  LOL

    To answer your question, yes, it's possible.  It's just a matter of the method.

    I would have like to run my computer as a standard computer, without setting it as a server.

    The objective is to update easily the content of this HTML page (only images) so anybody would be able to update it simply in a standard W10, without having to republish on the player and possibly affect a schedule with multiple presentation. I can't use BA:connected and the cloud for technical regulations.

    In order to deliver HTML to other devices in the network, you'll need to have some sort of web server.  It can be a local server.  If you have Windows 10 you may be able to install the IIS package from Microsoft (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48264).

    Cheers,
