  • Updated 4 years ago
I am wanting to use 3 or 4 videos, approx. 30 to 45 seconds each, in a presentation where each video plays in full length the goes to the next video plays it and so on.

I have added all of the videos the way I want them to run but only the first video plays?

I have made all of the setting the same for all 4 videos.

Jacob,

If you have 4 videos in a playlist they should play in succession unless there is another factor involved.  What happens after the first video plays, does it keep looping?  Do you have them set to Play Until Done? Move one of the other videos up to the first item in the list to see if they can play.  Also, you should use WebM and try the Video item instead (assuming you are using the HTML Video widget right now).

The videos are all webm stored on the Rise Storage system. The first video just keeps playing over and over again. All of the videos are set to play until finished.

Jacob, can you please try my suggestions so you can discover the source of the issue. It may be the videos themselves or some other factors in your presentation/setup/scheduling/display assignment unknown to me.

I forgot the player I was sending it to was not the newest version so I switched to the "video" display and all worked perfectly.

On a side question, I have 3 of the players deployed using the Raspberry Pi devices that were built last October/November. Using the video gadget with the same "webm" videos, will they play the videos as well or do I need to upgrade them to the newer player on a better device? I am trying to talk the department heads into purchasing DELL Chromeboxes to replace the Raspberry Pi's but they have not moving to quickly to do so even though I can get them through our DELL contract for $158.00 each.

Thanks for the update Jacob.  

I am not familiar myself with the Raspberry Pi devices so anything I say might be old news and not even accurate, such as, I thought that they had issues with videos.  I think there are others in the Community here that use them so it might be better to start a new thread with a descriptive title so maybe some of those other users could chime in if they are able to.
