Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I need to display some adds but also informations about which pharmacy is open in the city, with address and phone number. Meaning I'll need to display dynamic content. I wrote a ruby script that tweets this info. Can I use the same script to somehow make this info available daily for this system? ...

Re: Screenly - errors adding assets

I think I need to expand this rootfs to fill the 4GB card and that may do it? Thoughts...? Sure, if the disk is full, Screenly cannot write any data to disk. Hence, the issue you described is to be expected. At this point, I'd strongly advise you to reinstall Respbian from scratch, expand the rootf...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Update: I pushed a major fix to Screenly today that fixes video playback. It must have broken in some earlier update.

To update, simply do:
cd ~/screenly
git pull
pkill -f "viewer.py"

Re: Screenly - errors adding assets

Hi, I get Screenly set up but get 500 - Internal Server errors on adding assets. I read through the posts and tried trashing the db and recreating with no luck... It seems a database access problem like one of the other posts. What was the fix for that? What kind of asset did you try to add? Also, ...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

This is just a comment about the duration of the assets. If you set duration up as a large number, it would take that long for the viewer to realize there has been a change in the playlist. Am I right? Yes, the playlist will run through five times and then refresh. Hence if you only have one asset ...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

And yes, I was able to ping the address and the asset was just a plain HTML-page with a small javascript to do some kind of slideshow. The first problem I had was the rootfs was full, as I had not extended my partition to use the full SD card space. After rearranging partitions it failed again once...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I found a pretty big issue with the installation instructions. Turns out I was using the 'read-write' Github URL instead of the 'read-only' one. This explains the issue some of you reported about not being able to clone the repository.

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

That's what I've been doing to run the viewer (which does indeed start the viewer) but I thought it was supposed to autorun at boot? The server is starting automatically, but the viewer is not. Edit: This was installed per the readme file on a fresh install of Raspbian. I burned the image, booted, ...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

So I got it working, I created a github account and SSH key, and was able to install screenly. Odd, that should not be needed. Now, however, the viewer doesn't start automatically on boot. I have to manually activate the viewer python script to activate the sign. Any ideas why that might be and how...

Not at the moment, but there is still some local caching going on in the browser.

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I installed Screenly today. Some thoughts and questions: 1) Your git install instructions are predicated on the user having a github account. I ended up just downloading your source and then installing from there. Hmm, I don't think that is the case. Maybe if you try to clone using the git protocol...

Re: Looking for collaboration on Digital Signage project wit

Hi! I will be releasing a new, cheap and very competitive Digital Signage solution this year and would like to see if the Pi is able to be the hardware I could sell along with it. It just needs to play video files and sync data with a server. Who would be interested in creating the Pi side of it? M...

Re: RaspberryPi as extremely cheap digital signage

Looks a nice project, does the video playback support the hardware decode for mp4 ? Yes, it uses omxplayer, so the mp4 playback is hardware accelerated. The configuration of the seperate pages are on the pi, when I understand it correctly? That is correct. The system uses a built-in web-server for ...

Re: RaspberryPi as extremely cheap digital signage

Looks interesting. What is exactly the commercial license that you mention in the licensing part? That's because we might add a 'managed' service down the road if we see enough traction (ie. such that you can remotely manage multiple nodes). That said, the single-node version will always be availab...

Hey guys, I just released a complete turn-key digital signage solution for the Raspberry Pi called Screenly. While still in beta, I was hoping to tap into this vibrant community for beta testers. The idea is for Screenly to be a 'set and forget' appliance. Once installed, you manage all the content ...
