I need to setup display that shows a secure web page that's authenticated with a username/password, this page also uses flash, so that would need to work.

I'm planning on deploying with Raspberry Pi hardware.

There isn't any flash support for the Pi. If the web page contains it, that portion will not show on the Pi. If the requirement of using Flash is necessary, I would suggest moving to a Linux, or Windows Player.

If the site requires authentication, you can try the methods there suggested here.

Thanks.

Perfect, that's what I was looking for, the user/pass works. I forgot putting it in the URL was a thing.

As for how it actually works in Rise Vision. I can't seem to figure out how to setup a "presentation" so it just loads a webpage in full screen.

There's a couple of methods when using a web page.  If the web page is the only content showing on the the Display, you can skip creating a Presentation and just use a Schedule.  Inside the Schedule, instead of adding a Presentation, click on the URL radio button and specify the page that way.


If there's going to be other content showing as well, when you create a Presentation, add a full screen Placeholder and add the Web Page Widget via the Add Content selection.

Thanks.
