Can anyone help with the following:
My headteacher wants our Samsung infomation screens to show the bbc web streaming live news at lunch time.
While I can easily insert a web element into the screens I need to find the URL that automatically goes to the pop out player or rather full screen. At the momment this URL:
BBC NEWS | Video and Audio | News Channel Live | BBC News Channel
Works fine but has the all the other bbc website stuff around it and I need it full screen without having to select it?
Any ideas what the URL for it might be?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Don't forget that you will need a TV license for the streaming of live programs.
yeah we have a license so that should be fine.
The fullscreen button is part of the BBC Flash Media Player. Another option would be to embed the feed in a webpage and set the browser to fullscreen.
The attached txt file (rename to html) seems to work but YMMV. Just look for the following code and change the setting to fit your screens resolution.
Code:<param name="width" value="1024" /> <param name="height" value="576" />

Thanks this is probally what I need!
i'll give it a try!
Dose any body have a idea for the following I want to use the BBC news channel as a screen saver , at present I have a screen that displays shared calendars, I would like the screen saver to kick in after one min and the screen saver to be the BBC news channel , so when a user comes up to the computer they wiggle the mouse and thay see the calendars ,thay walk away and teh news channel kicks back in,
Is that even possible?!
The quickest way I could think of doing this would be a custom screen saver that loaded a web page with iPlayer embedded, in much the same way as the OP here wanted. Not sure if a tool to create such a thing exists though.
In short, not impossible, but I suspect not straightforward. If you do crack it let us know!
Yes its the tool to set up the screen saver as a web page is the bit i need, dose any body know of a tool or hack I can use,
Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but the above example doesn't appear to function the same anymore.
When run it gives a holding message saying "Click here to view BBC News Channel at BBC Online".
Does anyone have a solution to have it autoplay and stay within the same webpage?
