Custom URL Presentation on Raspberry Pi

I created a presentation using a Custom URL and was hoping it would playback on the Raspberry Pi players that I have. You can see the URL here: http://hillcrestchurch.com/signage.html
It plays fine in the setup preview on RiseVision dashboard, however it freezes on the Raspberry Pi. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Van,

Does this freeze immediately, or after a period of time?

Hey Blake,

It's immediate, presentation doesn't get past the loading screen.

Van,

This is likely due to the hardware limitations of the Raspberry Pi. I have this web page up and running in the web page widget on a linux NUC it everything is displaying as anticipated.

Ok, thanks Blake. I have let the presentation sit for a while and the first slide eventually loaded. It doesn't have any movement when playing the full screen slider url. I was trying this option to give the screens more animation then what the Presentations built in RVA can do. Thanks for looking into this.

We were hoping that we could roll over to a live web stream feed on these displays during live events, but I'm guessing the Pi would also be limited in playback?

Do you think the new Raspberry Pi 2 will have better performance to handle more movement?

Van,

Unfortunately video of any type is not supported on Pi at the moment.

The new Pi certainly has the specs to handle this type of content, however since we haven't gotten any in our hands yet, we've been unable to see what kind of work will be needed to get Rise Player on it. We'll definitely keep the community updated as we make progress, we also have a strong community of independent developers that may be working on their own solutions for the new Pi.
