Hi all,
Rise Vision is working fine on Raspberry PI except for Video. I bought the codecs from raspberry foundation and still trying to make it work on rise vision player.

If anybody find an issue please share it...

Thanks

Hi Ray,

Can you check to make sure that the Spreadsheet you are using for the Directory and Spreadsheet Gadgets are is properly shared? It should be set to Public, or to Anyone with the link.You can review how to share the spreadsheet here.

Thanks!

For the record, I have posted and gotten an answer regarding Chrome on Raspberry and why it's not updated.

https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/chromium-discuss/R4i-10NlmKA

Looks like Rise would have to compile their own as it's not officially supported, but according to the responder, should be fairly easy (Take that with a grain of salt, because what's easy for others... Certainly above my skill set)

No problem. If you do end up compiling a new version, I would be happy to do some testing on an alpha/beta of the updated player.

Let's be clear, it's not the Pi, nor the RisePlayer itself, it's Chrome (The base for the RisePlayer) that's the issue.

Google doesn't compile for the Pi, and the only version that was compiled is very old (With no HTML5 tags to support video). There are reports online that nobody has been able to compile a working version of the latest builds to work on the Pi.

The technical aspects of this are above my head, but that's why we can't do Video on the Pi right now. There is hope for the future, but no timelines.

Thanks for the input, Glen.

With that in mind, the Pi Player is completely open source. We do encourage our users with development experience to take advantage of this and change the player to suit their individual needs.
