Hi,
I'm trying to use the pud feature on a nested presentation that contain only a web page gadget. I set a fixed duration and I expect that when inserting this presentation in the list of main one I can use pud, but this is not working and I have to set a fixed duration also in the main one list. Is this correct?
Using the pud feature with nested presentation that contain video or images is working correctly.

Thanks!

Having the Web Page Widget as the sole Playlist item in the embedded Presentation wouldn't support Play Until Done for the Presentation Item.  The Widget wouldn't end, and thus not send the done response.

If you add addition items to the Playlist with the Web Page Widget, then Play Until Done will work, or if the sole item is a video, it will also work. Please be sure that the Play Until Done setting (in the Gears Icon) in the embedded Presentation is set to the proper Placeholder.

Thanks.

Thanks Neal,
I understand, anyway I think it could be usefull to use the pud even for one item, in this way if I change duration of the item or add another one, I don't have to worry about changing it in the main presentation.

If its just the sole item, and you change the duration, you can just go to the main Presentation and update the duration there.  I understand that there are a couple of additional steps involved if you add items to the Playlist.

Thanks for the feeback!

Hello Neal,
I've the same issue, but in this case the nested presentation contain a photo album gadget. The PUD settings is ignored in the main presentation, and the photo gallery never ends. I've also tried to add a second item next to the photo gallery but stil doesn't work.

Thanks

With the nested Presentation, can you ensure that the Play Until Done Placeholder is pointed to the right one?  To find this setting in the Editor, click on the Gear Icon near the upper right corner.  Use the dropdown menu to select which Placeholder you want the Presentation to use for PUD.

Thanks.

Hi Neal,
there is only one placeholder so it point to the correct one.

Thanks
