Hello,

How can I use remote management on Screenly OSE? I didn't find any document. Is that possible to use on a cloud?

Thanks

Thanks for your answer.

I tried to use the same procedure Pi-Gen using the Screenly files.

That's correct?

Or can you kindly explain me the right steps?

Thanks a lot
For example you can:
- Create dir

Code: Select all

./stage2/04-new-edits

- Make your new features and edits in file

Code: Select all

./stage2/04-new-edits/00-run.sh

- Add packages in file

Code: Select all

./stage2/04-new-edits/00-packages 

Then try build it

Code: Select all

sudo ./build.sh

Hi! Could you describe your problem in more detail by creating a issue on github?

I'm fairly new to the Pi. Currently I have a QuadBoot image running and configured. Running Raspian, RasPlex, Retropi, Kodi.

How would I go about installing Screenly OSE without wiping out my image?Ideally I'd just like to add it to my current setup. Would running an install via the terminal wipe it all out?

I have a slide show with 3 urls that cycle 2 mins then 10 seconds and 10 seconds looping. I've been getting one of the urls having a loading error. (site problem I'm assuming) which I would be fine with every once in a while. Problem is screenly stops completely until reboot. It doesn't ever load the next asset so it hangs on the failed url.

I am looking for a way to change the asset location. I'd like to move it from the microSD card to an attached thumb drive. Could some one point me in the right direction?

Thank you for your time.

Used ctrl+alt+F1 to exit Screenly.io OSE. How to restart without reboot

Sun Feb 17, 2019 9:43 pm

Used ctrl+alt+F1 to exit Screenly.io OSE and make configuration changes.

Is there a way to restart Screenly.io OSE without doing a reboot?

The install is Sprint 8 downloaded in Feb 2019, running on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+

Hi guys, since the "company" is bitchy if you ask question on their "support"-site I have to ask here:

1. Can I use a USB-drive for the content that is uploaded or do I just have to symlink/hardlink the content-directory to a USB-drive without breaking the whole installation?

2. It would really cool if Screenly OSE would have daily and weekly repeating playlist-entries.... it's not really convinient to set stuff that happens daily or weekly at the same time again and again. Any way to get this working?

Haven't installed the latest version, so if the latter thing was already patched in, ignore this. :) If not (and if there is no way to solve this): any other alternative software similar to Screenly that runs offline (locally)?

Thanks pals. :D

HI !

Screenly OSE crashes and causes an error message on the web pages after a while.

Here is the error message:

Unable to load page
Problem occured while loading the URM
https://www ......
Error performing TLS handshake: An unexpected TLS packet was received.

This has been reproducible on a Raspberry PI 3 B +, as well as on a Raspberry 2, the problem is identical. Also tested on 2 different internet connections and recurring problem.
It is really binding and it forces to electrically disconnect the device for it to go again.

version of screenly ose: image_2018-11-23-Screenly-OSE-lite

The blocking pages were the screen time we app app itself or a web page itself.

Thank you

Screenly + Letsencrypt

Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:56 am

I've installed a rpi3 with screenly OSE at school and I've made it accessible from the internet using https.

I would like to use Letsencrypt to get a valid certificate for the https web-interface.

My idea to do this is to forward both port 80 and port 443 to the device and to let screenly only use port 443 (https) and let the certbot use port 80.
However, screenly is listening on port 80 as well, is there a way to limit screenly to port 443, or use a different port than port 80?

Tnx

/Simon

Letsencrypt solution, step 1:

stop nginx (systemctl stop nginx.service)
start certbot
configure nginx to use the certificate downloaded from letsencrypt.
reboot the rpi (or just start nginx)

step 2: automate the renewal

I think it should work to make a script (or a cronjob) to stop nginx, run certbot --renew, start nginx.
This should be done twice a day, I think, to make sure the certificate is kept up to date.
(Edit: I don't think it's necessary to stop/start nginx to get a new certificate, since we have already proved the domain is ours, and exchanged credentials)

conditionally turn on/of TV based on asset

Sun Apr 21, 2019 6:56 pm

I've figured out how to turn on/off the TV using cec-client, but more importantly, It's quite easy to do this conditionally based on if an asset is enabled or not.

The reason is that I want the teachers who provide the screens to have control over the on/off situation of the TV. So I made a cronjob with a script:

cronjob:

Code: Select all

16 8 * * mon-fri /home/pi/bin/screen_on_unless_asset_enabled vakantie
screen_on_unless_asset_enabled

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

if [ $# -gt 0 ]
then
        ASSETNAME="$1"
else
        echo "$0: require argument to search for in assets" >&2
        exit 1
fi


if /usr/bin/sqlite3 /home/pi/.screenly/screenly.db 'select name, is_enabled from assets;' | grep -i "$ASSETNAME" |grep -q '|1'
then
        #asset enabled, don't turn on
        :
else
        /bin/echo 'on 0' | /usr/bin/cec-client -s -d 1
        /bin/echo 'as' | /usr/bin/cec-client -s -d 1
fi
Of course, you need to install the cec-utils package, if you haven't already.

This will turn the TV on unless the database with assets contains the string "vakantie" in an enabled asset.

Turning off is done like this at 17:00

Code: Select all

00 17 * * * /bin/echo 'standby 0' |  /usr/bin/cec-client -s -d 1
I'm sure it's easy enough for you to modify this for turning the TV off conditionally or something else...

Cheers

/Simon

Hello Everybody!
I have installed Screenly OSE in my Raspberry and it runs correctly, but… my question is…
Can I manage screenly from outside LAN, for example with my mobile phone?
Thank u :D .

Hi, i am using OSE, i'm just wondering if an OSE image can be used on several different Raspberries PI models?
Can I create a SD image and use it in several Raspberries PI?

Greetings!

How do I set up a development environment to see my changes?
This may be obvious, but I am not getting it. I want to expand the API, I am able to use the docker image for the server, and see my changes there, but I cannot figure out how to see my changes in a viewer without deploying my code to the physical raspberry pi.
Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,

I tried to install the OSE version today.

On restart after the installation I see the "Welcome to the Raspberry Pi Desktop" image with the pi logo. in the lower left I see "rc-local.service" and then in the upper left the pi boots into the command line asking for my user name and password. When I provide these I just get to the command line. Screenly does not startup.

I followed the install instructions here: https://www.screenly.io/ose/

I note, however, that raspi-config had no option to expand the root file system.

Any ideas what has gone wrong?

Has anyone had success porting this to a Raspberry Pi 4?
I have made it to the Database Migration Script section in Ansible. At which point I start getting a lot of errors.

The screenly image will be rebuilt soon to accommodate the Pi4.

I am having this exact same issue. Any ideas out there?
For more info, I used the command line and ssh to install.

Thank you much to all who know more than I. :)

Hi,

How to change the default listening port of the Screenly ose ? if it's possible.

Thanks!

Hi,

The port number 8080 is present in files server.py and viewer.py.
The not-so-nice way to change it, is by changing all occurences of 8080 in these files into the tcp port that you want.
