    Best XIBo embeds?

    I'm still experimenting with our XIBO iinstall and I am trying to find some decent "extras" to embed in layouts.

    I have a weather one that looks pretty poor and would like to find a travel one to show towards the end of the day so staff can check the motorways before leaving.

    I have found that tomtom have an embeddable map but it doesn't give enough info so ideally something more like the bbc news traffic would be best.

    I know I can use RSS for the travel but pictures look nicer don't they!

    Might be worth looking at using some of the code out of a page like this

    Frixo - M1 Traffic Report | M1 North Delays | Travel News Updates

    Apart from that I've got sky news working, BBC optionally, and use BBC weather embeds for local weather info.

    Ours is all done by the students, so i have only really played with displaying nagios, but i set up a java script webpage to auto update the datee automagically. Apart from that we only have a Powerpoint and BBC news Rss Feed

    I do most of the stuff on ours, we've got 3 scrolling windows for news, daily bulletins and info on any groups that are going on, at the moment we've got bbc live running but its a bit hit and miss, sometimes it will work, other times we get the "this content cannot be displayed at this time" message, a restart of the xibo client usually gets it going. In my opinion the sky feed is more dependable even if it does repeat the headlines, there is a bbc rss feed at the bottom too. Never thought about using and automagic date thingy, I'll have a play with that on monday . I did look at some weather station stuff but we were running out of room at that point. Finding time to have a play with it is the big factor though, there just never seems to be enough of it.

    We use Google Apps for email and calendar and so I have created a whole school calendar. Any member of staff can invite the "School Calendar" then I display this on Xibo. So it is always up to date.
