    Hey guys got our new xibo setup up and running but I'm having a problem with .net framework its coming up with an out of memory error, I can see in task manager that Xibo is using about 1.4gb of ram, even if i close the xibo client is runs in the background eating memory until i end the process. Has anyone came across this or know a fix?

    Hi,

    New Xibo user, and my moods are currently going from joy to frustration. Anyone have any idea why Xibo is now not showing any RSS feeds. I've completely stripped the template so it's just a background, added an RSS ticker and used the BBC's feed and nothing. Embedding a webpage and embedding a WMV video all seem to work. Feeds worked about an hour ago.

    Arrrrgh!


    UPDATE:
    Solved. Apparently removing the ticker region and re-adding solved the problem

    I had a similar issue but mine was related to the fact I was using a PNG background. Changed to JPG and the problem went away :s Was a bit weird tbh!

    How are you finding it? Are you using the Python or .NET client?

    Finally got around to playing with this software today even though we've had the server side installed using Xampp for over 3 months LOL.

    I like it - great value what with it being open source.

    My weekend reading is the user guide online, but for now can anyone tell me how to make things go on forever? I have to put a duration in for most things, but after a certain amount of time, my layout gets replaced with the 'Xibo Open Source Digital Signage Screen'. This appears for a while and then it all starts again.

    How long to you guys put in your duration? Is it simply a case of putting in enough seconds for 24 hours?

    .NET. It has its ups and downs TBH. I have been tempted to scrap it and just throw a load of money at Navaho or the like; have them do it all for me. But when I think how much money the school could save (and it could look good on the old CV - a scenario where I saved the school s) and the lack of excitement I got from these incredibly expensive solutions I go back to Xibo.

    Regarding PNG backgrounds; I tried using one the other day and it worked OK. However, when I tried loading an RSS ticker over it it loaded up fine but the region area had this awful lime green background. Switched the BG back to a jpg and it was fine.

    Whats the python client like?

    im currently testing xibo at the momnet and all is well so far but, ive embeded the code for live bbc news it works fine but only on 1 client. All the rest just say not possible to view this content? and on another note, when i resize it in the code it becomes very jumpy it only seems to like being at 395x640? any ideas on how to get it smaller and running smoothly?

    Thanks

    Check by playing the bbc news staight on the client rather than through Xibo. The only time I had issues with a machine not playing live news was due to the internet browser wanting updates before it would play the stream.

    I use the metoffice one you can customise it for your area. Met Office: Weather Widgets follow the steps, then copy and paste the code into an HTML document, save it somewhere Xibo can read it from and insert it into a layout as a webpage - Works well for me. I've got a clock and weather update on our reception screen both of them inserted in this way.

    Mike.

    We have a clock in the top corner from ClockLink.com - Free Flash World Clock and the BBC news on an RSS feed across the bottom.
