Web-page's Advanced Features

  1. Play From/ Play Until 
    In other words, you can set the expiration date which means that you can choose the exact date and time that Web-page will display in your playlist/show or you can set it to "Always" and "Forever" and the Web-page will never expire.

  2. Fallback Web-page
    If a web page or web widget isn’t loading or a player is offline, you can choose an image to appear instead of a black or white error screen. Just click inside the box and choose your image from your account.

  3. Zoom factor (%)
    Is set to 100% by default. By altering it you zoom in (>100) or out (<100) of the web-page by the given percentage.

  4. Auto-Adjust Zoom
    Is also enabled by default, to adjust the zoom for monitors with a width other than 1920 pixels so that they look the same.

  5. Refresh Web Page
    Set a refresh interval for the Web Page. 
    (info)Any Script Code that you may have defined on the Custom Script text area will only be executed on the first load of the page and not on each successive refresh.

    Refreshing a Web-page while using a script

    If you'd like to refresh a web-page while there is a running script on your web-page you can follow the below 2 options:

    1. You can use this command to repeat a set of our Scripting Engine commands in a compact and readable way. 

      With the times' parameter, you can specify the number of times to repeat a set of commands. By setting times parameter to zero, repeat is executed indefinitely.

      (info) Example of using repeat to refresh a webpage every minute (60s), indefinitely.

      1
      2
      3
      4

      repeat(0){
      pause(60)
      refresh()
      }

      (warning)The repeat command will initiate a repeat on all the commands that are nested on the 2 brackets {}. In this case, the pause(60) and the refresh() commands only.
      More details can be found here.

    2. You can create a Playlist and add the same Web Page twice, with the same duration. This will cause the Player to reload the Web Page at each interval.
  6. Disable Private Browsing 
    Web pages by default open in private browsing mode to prevent caching issues. You can use the toggle to disable it.

  7. Enable Chromium
    Some modern web-pages do not work properly with WebKit. Currently, when using chromium, the web-page can't have transparency.

    1. Retain Session Data:
      By default, this feature is disabled when using chromium. If you want to keep the same session for this web-page, even after a device reboot, you can click on the toggle button to enable it. Upon enabling this option, the "Disable Private Browser" option will be enabled as well.

    2. Enable Flash Player
      By default, this feature is disabled when using chromium. If a web-page requires a flash player to display the web-page content, you can click on the toggle to enable it.

  8. Ignore Certificate Errors
    We made it possible for users to disable Certificate checks for a Web Page so they can display internal sites without valid certification. If you are facing a certificate issued with your web-page, just toggle the button to ON and the web-page will ignore any certificate errors.

  9. Scripting Engine (Run Custom Script)
    You can click on the toggle to enable the scripting engine feature, where you can actually add scripts to run after a web-page is loaded in order to modify and navigate it as you wish. For more information please check out the Web Scripting Engine section in the user manual.
