Hi Alex,

I have a presentation with about 35 videos which is scheduled to two monitors. At times the presentation gets stuck on a random video and loops over and over without moving on to the next video. 

I remember you said you have a new video item to be released but is there anyway I can fix this problem with the current video item?

Thank you!

Adrian,

Have you tried the new Video Folder Widget? I would like to know if it helps with your issue.

Blake, I haven't since I'm hosting all the videos through Dream Host... Alex mentioned a new Video Item widget which will be released soon but I have a client with two TV's complaining that random videos loop over and over. Right now I'm just rebooting the Chrome Boxes remotely every two hours :(. Any advise? Than you!

Adrian,

Are you using the Video Item or the HTML5 Video Widget?

Adrian,

Are all of these videos set to play on all displays, and are you only having issues with 2 out of 3 displays?

On a side note, it was really strange to look at your presentation and see two friends of mine featured in one of the videos. It's a small world!

Yes. The videos are set to play on all displays and I have them playing on two Chrome Boxes. The third display is only displaying a Twitter feed. 

Lol thats crazy a small world it is!

Adrian,

Thanks for the reminder! We did release a new HTML5 Video Widget yesterday. Could you try replacing the video item with this new widget?
