My Rise Player Updates

Its been a while since i posted updates about the My Rise Player and where we are headed with the newer updates, so i think its time to update everyone. In the next few days to a week i will be updating all the My Rise Player apps across all android devices. Its not a major update or anything, but a fix/add-in to the video cache server. As it stands rise will be updating the video item to a video widget. This widget however will not work well with android due to items not being supported by android. What we did instead was we developed our own free widget so that My Rise Player users could continue to have video. We also made it strictly html5 so that it wouldn't cause much issues like the video item did. This widget will cache video and play from cache just like the video item. It evens has a screen that lets you know its downloading to cache before it plays. Its also a work in process....

Anyway, after a few days have past from the apps being on the store and updates start to process, we will post the video widget. Hopefully there isn't any bugs or issues but from my test it seems to do really well. Even the bad devices i own did well with this new widget. 

Also if your interested in testing before then, please email me at support@scottsdigitalsignage.com so that i can send the proper info to you. 

As far as the fire tv sticks. This update will not effect much on playability. The webview library I'm using will still remain the same until amazon fixes a bug. The bug is related to ajax request and without those working then there is no video caching from both the video item or my widget. I will update everyone once they fix the issue and then publish a new update with the newer library. Amazon is a pain on there support. :(

Anyway thats about it. If you have any question let me know i will answer them. Thanks

Think it will be somehow poissible to re-cache the video file say daily. So you can upload a new file named the same the file source server and it would update.

Is the rise video widget going to be a paid service?

The bigger the video the longer it takes to download to cache. If your getting blank screen most of the time its the time it takes to download before playing. Give it sometime to download an it should play. You could also try the android video widget if your having issues with the rise widget or gadget. Mine has a downloading to cache text before it plays so you will know what its doing. It will not show back up. It only shows when its downloading. :) I have a mk908ii and i like it. It should work for you. :)

I have installed My Rise Player in my android mobile and compute PC with android 4.4. There seems to be an issue with resolution, image being displayed on the screen is only the top left quarter.

Is there any known bug with the player ?
Also, can we use this player free of cost installing it in our client devices ?
Is the source code for this available open source ?
