I'm really interested to try this script but there isn't anything to find at GitHub. Is there a new link available?flamewave000 wrote: So anyways! I spent the last month of my spare time at my 10hr a week job here on campus to piece together this simple script. It's only tested on the Wheezy distro but so far it has worked perfectly. We are running the open sourced Concerto Digital Signage server and this script package will automatically setup a Raspberry Pi to act as a client machine.
The script simply ensures that when ever the Pi starts, the mouse is hidden, the screen does not go to sleep and a Midori browser is opened fullscreen to the concerto signage page for the particular screen the pi is running. I've placed the script in a public GitHub. Let me know what you think!

Minimal Kiosk Browser can do it by using omxplayer(GUI). But I don't know concerto.colleseus06 wrote:Hi Everybody,
I have an LCD in my lab that i want to convert into something interactive and dynamic. It should show the ongoing projects in a more effective way rather than boring ppts. So while searching I fumbled upon digital signage tools and I feel concerto can fulfill me needs, so I just want to clarify some doubts before proceeding:
Can concerto be used to fetch content dynamically and can it run videos effectively?
Can I write some scripts to go to internet and display some specific data?
Midori browser cannot stream videos effectively, so any other alternative is available?
Can i setup concerto server on pi? Is it fast enough?
I have installed the browser but the video streaming from youtube is not as per my needs.gkreidl wrote: Minimal Kiosk Browser can do it by using omxplayer(GUI). But I don't know concerto.

what do you mean by "framewise" manner?colleseus06 wrote:gkreidl wrote: I want to display movie clips (right now I am trying to play youtube videos). The kiosk browser runs the videos from the youtube website but in framewise manner. While if I put the videos in concerto, it doesnot play at all.
From Framewise manner, I meant that the video displays one frame for 1-2 seconds and then abruptly switches to next frame. So there is no smooth transition as it should happen in a video. I researched a lot about this issue and the options I concluded could begkreidl wrote: what do you mean by "framewise" manner?
