How do I remove count down when starting player?

We are working on integrating the latest version of Rise Vision into our system. Our system is Linux based and based on Centos 7. Our system creates a temporary user for every instance of Rise Player. The user is created just before Rise Player is started and deleted just after is exits. There can be many instances of Rise Vision player running at once. The files are installed globally without user write permissions. It is version "2016.11.17.19.50".

So for I have got the player to work by populating RiseDisplayNetworkII.ini with claimid, displayid, viewerurl, coreurl, and proxy before every launch. We create a "graceful_shutdown_flag" (to avoid the incorrectly shutdown message). We start the installer with the unattended parameter to skip the OS warning and displayid/claimid setup.

Right now, when the rise vision player starts it shows a page that says "Rise Player will start in" followed by a count down. How do I remove this count down?

I tried creating a "display_config.json" with appropriate values, but it didn't appear to make a difference.

Hi Laurie,

You can try adding the --skip-countdown parameter in addition to --unattended. Please keep in mind though that we don't officially support this flag, so you use it at your own risk.

Thx.
Could you share the list of all parameters which "start.sh" bash script can forward to executable binary called "installer".

Works great. Thanks.

Edit: actually, I can see the "Rise Player will start in 10 seconds" briefly, but definitely an improvement

Michael,

You can try adding the --skip-countdown to the shortcut in the start menu. Please keep in mind though that we don't officially support this flag, so you use it at your own risk.

Well, just checked mine still works. For two months now. Have you not released any updates in two months?

Hello Michael,

Thanks for your reply. With Ubuntu, since it's Linux, there is no Start Menu. To add this command to your existing setup, you would need to open the Terminal (an app you can find by clicking the Ubuntu icon in the Dock), and typing:

gedit .config/autostart/rvplayer.desktop

You can then add this command on Line 6 of that document.  Once done, close gedit and save your changes. 

Please note, this is likely to be removed when your app updates or if we modify the player in the future. It is not an option we support and can break at any moment. 

If you have any additional questions, let us know!

Yes. Updating the Player software, reinstalling it, or us pushing updates on our Raspbian OS, Windows OS, and Linux OS player software running on PCs using the flag could cause the configuration to reset/change, removing the f

Michael,

Can you try sudo gedit .config/autostart/rvplayer.desktop and see if that works? Also, can you confirm that you are doing this as the user that the Rise Vision Player currently runs as?

Hi Michael,

Commands like sudo are integrated into the Linux OS itself, every distribution uses this command. :) It sounds like gedit may not be installed. On the machine running Ubuntu, please run the following:

sudo apt-get install gedit

Then run:  sudo gedit .config/autostart/rvplayer.desktop

If you have any error, please let us know and if possible, attach a screen shot!
