Is there a function (through URL Properties or elsewhere) to loop a video or slideshow so that the content is constantly refreshed rather than ending on a still image?

Lindsay,

There was a method provided here for looping youtube videos. Is this something that would work for you?

I'm not using youtube, so the &autoplay=1&loop=1&playlist=video_id%20to%20the%20src%20url does not work for me.  Are there any other options? Thanks for the help.

Blake, I apologize in advance but am new to Rise Vision and am not quite sure I understand how it all works.  Currently, our slideshow is pulling from the custom URL http://www.sms.org/cf_media/index.cfm?g=257 and our Placeholder settings are ph0, but it does NOT repeat.

Lindsay,

I think I understand what you're trying to accomplish now! There are a few solutions I can recommend.

The first (and most elegant) solution, would be for you to try out our Rise Vision Storage program. You would upload your images to Rise Storage, then add each image to a playlist using Add -> Image. You can select how long each image displays, and they will automatically repeat.

The second is a bit more clunky. You can add that URL you listed into our web page widget. The web page widget will display the entire page (including the slideshow), and you can set the widget to refresh, which will restart the slideshow.

I hope this helps!

My images have been uploaded into Rise Storage but I don't see how to Add them to a playlist.

Disregard (for now).  I'm figuring it out.  Thanks anyway.

Lindsay,

If you right click the placeholder you want your images to appear in, click properties, then click add, you will be able to add one image at a time to the playlist.
