    Cool...looks nice!

    How come u use the flash plugin and not just the powerpoint?.....does flash work better on Xibo?

    Also like the idea of the rotating java clock with logo. How did u go about that?

    Cheers

    Hi Ben,

    How are you setting that up. I've got two TV's here, one running OneLan the other running ShowPoint. I've been thinking about trialing XIBO at some point.

    Have you got 1 PC for each TV, or do all three run from the same control PC?

    Cheers

    Terry.

    File size! ppt = 2.8mb, exported to flash = 835kb. Runs smoothly with no particular loss of quality...

    Just add the flash clock to your region (duration=60 for ours), then add an image file of your logo (again 60 secs). Xibo will show one then the other and keep on looping through them...

    You can get some free flash clocks from here

    Put it in the same property box as your school logo and set the desired display times. Haven't managed to get ours rotating as such....just changing!
