    Hiya,

    you can use either wmv, avi, mpg or mpeg. you will most likely need to change the php.ini file to allow larger files then 2mb to be uploaded. there is a guide here they play okay but bear in mind the client might need a codec pack or something. Xibo uses windows media player to display the videos.

    Im finding my upload speeds are taking ages, any ideas what could be causing it? Is it another php.ini setting perhaps?

    My RSS feeds packed up after I upgraded to 1.05, I still need to upgrade to 1.06 but if you do a google for xibo and rss feeds you'll find a few people having the same problem mate.

    I find if the RSS feed doesn't load correctly when xibo starts up, it just sits there with 'loading' on the screen. I fould putting the xibo client through our proxy helped, even thou it can access the feeds without needing it.

    Helped a nearby secondary get their Xibo signage up and running this week. Also heard of another recent large-scale implementation this week. ^_^

    How about loading them into windows photostory? Mass load the pictures you want and then load up the created video into Xibo instead? This is what I do here after the suggestion from another edugeeker

    Thanks for the quick reply, I've downloaded and installed and created WMV video file using lots of picture, I've uploaded to Xibo and set duration to 500, But its not loading the video on client PC. I can see black box but video is not playing. What am i doing wrong? Thanks again for you support.

    I use powerpoint for photo displays, BUT when you save the presentation make sure you turn image compression ON and it doesn't crash when it tries to load big images.

    I've always found the powerpoint playing abilities of Xibo to be very reliable and by far the most useful feature, as I just get people to submit their content in powerpoint format to me now - job done!
