    Only thing which doesnt work as expected is I couldnt get the video to loop properly. So i just created a webpage with the video looping and embeded the webpage in the Xibo template.

    great peice of software, infact its the best digital signage software ive used, free or paid for.
    I think I am right in saying that this is a bug and the work round is :-
    add a text item to the region that contains the video.
    The text item should be empty and have a short duration (Maybe 5 seconds)

    Created a new region on the layout then chose embed and copied and pasted the code from page 1. Check your default browser has all of the right proxy settings and that the iPlayer news 24 feed works in a browser on that computer normally.

    Question

    I'm glad this thread has started. I'm going to rebuild an old server with Server 2008 and was going to install this on it. Anyone had problems putting it on a Server 2008 environment? Client machines will still be XP.

    Can you try another computer as the client? Preferably one that's not very similar to the one you're currently using.

    Also, there's some code in the embed script by default... I left that as it was.

    I'd use linux as the back end, dead easy install in linux and less problems with uploading larger content to it - I had major issues on Windows getting the upload functions to work properly.

    The clients can be Windows XP, they are only looking at the server for content and it works no matter what OS the server is running, which is why I say go Linux for the server if you can.

    I have one gripe with Xibo, and that is it needs quite a powerful machine to run the client properly - any more than 2 moving areas of the screen and it grinds to a hault on some of my lower specification clients. The best bit however is being able to embed powerpoints - that way departments prepare their content for me in powerpoint, and I just tweek the powerpoint so it runs in a loop and upload it - simples!

    Mike.

    I'd agree with the other posters who have recommended using the linux backend. I'm running Ubuntu server and it hasn't missed a beat. Dead easy to install too, the guide on their site is pretty much all there.

    Will your old server support 2K8 with any degree of reliability? Got licensing for it?

    Edit: - do'h went back and re-read the thread, some of my "helpful" ideas were not quite on the right track.

    Yes,

    1) Take the code from AlexB's post (#15) in this thread
    2) Paste into notepad
    3) Save as bbc.html
    4) Upload to your webserver via ftp (usually to a user's homedir)
    5) SSH to your webserver and copy the bbc.html file to the website folder (/var/www/ under ubuntu)
    6) Not tested without this step but.. chmod the bbc.html file to 755
    7) Log into xibo and go to the edit page for your layout
    8) Choose the area you want and enter the webpage link as http://$yourwebserver/bbc.html
    9) Enjoy

    If you're having an "argh this still doesn't work" moment

    1) Verify you can view the http://$yourwebserver/bbc.html page independantly of xibo by using IE or $browser on the client PC.
    2) If you can't check the webserver is excluded from the proxy settings (although if it's not xibo shouldn't work)

    HTH
