There is a file called RiseDisplayNetworkII.ini file contained in the rvplayer folder that has your Display ID within it.

You can access rvplayer folder on Windows at C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\ and in Linux it is in the Home folder.

If you're using the Chrome Player, have your Display run a Presentation that shows the URL http://localhost:9449/config

Thanks!

Having a tough time changing the chrome player display ID. I created a presentation, added this URL (http://localhost:9449/config ) to a web gadget, created a display ID and and published it. Chrome app player still playing former display. Any additional help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Brett,

Just to confirm, have you added this Presentation to the Schedule that has the Display in it?

Thanks.

Here is the issue that I am seeing when trying to add that URL to a presentation. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?

Derrick,

Sorry about that, I will update the help documentation to inform that you don't use the Web Page Gadget to modify this. Instead, in your Schedule you can assign a Presentation OR URL to show in the Display. Assign the URL http://localhost:9449/config to the Schedule, Save the Schedule, and that URL will come up on your Display so you can change the Display ID.

Let us know if you have any trouble.

Thanks!

Thank you for the follow up. I was able to find a work around for the time being. However I will know the appropriate method for the future.

Thanks!

So needless to say this process is somewhat convoluted.  It looks like it will be easier to just delete the display and then recreate it.

Hi Robb,
I'm attempting to use the URL http://localhost:9449/config  in the Latest Web Site Widget. Unfortunately, I am not able to get any of the usual content displayed in order to change the Player ID. In the past this has worked pretty well, so not sure if this is a new problem or something on my end. All that displays is a white screen.

Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit 
Intel i3
4GB RAM

Thank you,

Joe,

Are you running the Chrome App Player or the native Linux Player?

If you are using the Linux Player, you can kill all Chrome and Java processes, go to the rvplayer folder, and open the RiseDisplayNetworkII.ini file with a text editor. Edit your Display ID in there, save it, and then reboot the Display. That will begin working with the new Display ID. Thanks!

I'm running the current Rise Vision Linux Player, I will give that a try and see if it works and report back. Thanks Robb
