EDIT MARCH 21, 2018: Please note that all conversations related to Chrome OS in this Community should be considered obsolete and out of date. As announced in our new Community, Rise Vision is adding support for Chrome OS with a new version of Rise Player for Chrome OS.

Searching "rise" or "risevision" or "risevision player" on Chrome App store is not bringing up any results related to RiseVision.  Not sure when this started, but it is happening to me on multiple devices today.  Anyone know what is going on?

I know Google is rolling out its own digital sign platform.  Did they just ban the competition?

David, if you need RV App for Chrome file I can share it with you.

That'd be great. But do we know why it isn't showing in the App Store?

I am not sure, but I am guessing it is because RV does not support Chrome OS anymore (temporarily?). I will get you the link in a minute or so.

Try this: http://propagandaworxipage.com/RVChromeApp/rvplayer-installer-OLD.exe, although, I am not sure anymore if that is the one, sorry. It has been long time since I installed RV on Chromebox. I may have gotten ahead of myself on this one...

That seems to be a Win32 binary.  (I'm installing on Ubuntu 14.04.)  But I think I'm all set - Hsuarez sent me a link to directly access the app in Chrome app store.  Thanks.

Sorry again, I must have deleted it after we decided to not buy Chromeboxes anymore.

Hi David,
The Rise Chrome App Player is no longer listed on the Chrome App Store however the direct link to download is located under Install Chrome OS here. The development for this App is currently on hold though.

Hi Ben,
Not at this stage. We are currently focusing our development work on Rise Windows and Linux Players

Darius,
Without an official app for ARM Windows, I don't feel like I want to chance it. We have all Windows infrastructure in the district, so it is attractive. I may try Win10 on a spare Pi now that I have a few with nothing to do!
Thank you for replying HSuarez. Hopefully you can come back to Pi3 with Rise Vision. It looks like the continued development of these boards would help to make an epic signage platform if someone would take the time, especially Pi 3.

Just my 2 cents. I do not want to sound judgmental, and quite frankly, I do not really care much, but I think people are abusing Raspberry PI and undermining the purpose of it. It was never designed to be a commercial product in first place. I think it is an awesome product and initiative when it comes to kids or students experimenting and building something based on this little device or shooting their little 4inX4in satellites to the lower orbit. That is truly amazing. However, it does not sound right when big boys and girls try to make a fully commercial product of it and sell it for a big profit. https://www.raspberrypi.org/about/ . Personally I believe Rise Vision should not develop and support their software for Raspberry Pi for that matter. However, it is great that students can grab RV core from GitHub and build digital displays for their schools.

For me it comes down to saving my non-profit school district money if possible. My coworker showed Rise to me because he was using it in a church he attends. I thought the small form factor, lack of moving parts, and built in HDMI output made the Pi a natural application of the signage technology. I am not selling these things, only trying to make the most cost effective solution work reliably for 12-16 hr a day displays. I agree there is no point in commercial distribution of the Pi, as it is and always will be a hobbyist board. That may be where some of these I bought for Rise go; we have a group of kids that compete in robotics, so I may donate them to the cause, although an Arduino would be better for them.
