Timer for switch presentation on schedule - BAconnected

I create some singles users with the same contents. in every user there is a principal presentation and the presentation dedicated to user. in schedule i insert the general presentation "all day, every day" the second presentation i need to reproduce alternatively every "X" minute.

 

there is a possibility to add a timer for switch presentation "A" to presentation "B"?

 

Thank you!

    I wonder if all those presentations could be combined into a single one.

    What is the content shown?

    How do presentations differ?

    Hi!

    i have some travel agencies in one network. all agencies reproduce one single presentation. now, every single agencies, beyond the general presentation want reproduce their own content on screen. i created for every agencies their own network ( because roles and permission for this thing not work) with presentation A (general content) and presentation B (specific agencie's content) now in schedule tab i need to reproduce presentation A (all day every day), when it end, start presentation B.

    all this in loop.

    Sounds like Dynamic Playlists would be suitable to what you are describing.

    There would be a general network with a general Dynamic Playlist to which only you have access.

    In addition to general network, you could create a Dynamic Playlist for each agency that they would manage on their own.

    The presentations schedule would not change, while content would change, based on each agency's requirements.

    You should be able to set permissions so your users can only manage content so they cannot break anything.

    I hope that helped.

    Thanks for sharing.

    The last item looks like a media list.

    If the last item is removed, does the playlist work correctly?

     

    Also, you might get more visibility and response from the community of users by moving this conversation to the General Community forum

    Ok, i move it.

    inside the dynamic playlist i have images and videos, the problem are image. when i upload an image in presentation the program noticed that if the resolution is much bigger the program resized it. but if i upload the image in dynamic playist and the image is much bigger, dynamic playlist don't noticed me if the resolution is much bigger. and i have a black screen.

    the problem is when i upload an image in dynamic playlist.

    What happens if you resize the images so they at the same resolution as the screen's?

    (Best practice is to use media file at the same resolution as the the output's format)

    If applicable, you could also convert still images to video files. Not ideal but might be a reasonable compromise until a bug fix is provided.

    obviously if i resize the image i see it on screen.

    (i know... i know)

    But, if my client want upload only images on dynamic playlist because he can't make video, you understand that is ridiculus about this bug.

    i need a bug fix immediatly.

    thanks!

    If you have figured out what works and what doesn't I suggest you open a support ticket by sending detailed email to

    support@brightsign.biz

     

    As a temporary workaround; does it work when the last item in the list is a video?

    (with images listed before the last item)
