Our customer has a subscription to MarineTraffic and we use embedded html ( http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/p/embed-map ) to include their fleet into a digital signage.

Unfortunelately, if we change the code from maptype from 0-1-2 (standard map, satelitte etc.) this will not be reflected sometimes, even for many days on the screen, sometimes not at all.
We have rebooted player, delete the rvplayer cache etc.
I suspect there can be a cache centrally in the rise vision in the amazon web services? is that possible? Cause even if I try preview in the management console on a different pc, it still shows the old map

Are you using the HTML widget? Do you have the same error if you create a separate HTML document hosted on rise storage and link to it with the webpage widget?

yes, i am using the HTML widget. 
I did now try to create a hmml file, save it on the storage and view the link and the same happens there. It does not obey the settings.

Hmm, does not seem to be a issue related to RiseVision. I get the same thing putting the .html file on different servers world wide. Will contact MarineTraffic for further troublehooting. Thanks.

Frank, it appears that provided JS (java script) does not have any refresh code built in it. See if you can incorporate that. Also, try meta refresh, but I have noticed that it might not work with JS in the html. Also the same JS can be messing up RV refresh... I am speculating, I do not know for sure, but I have ran into refresh problems with a webpage that has JS in its html. And like Tri-C Metro advised, use the Web Page Widget instead of HTML. The HTML Widget can be miss and hit, and I usually resort using it only with the basic stuff.
