I have made a presentation which runs fine within the preview through the rise vision site, however when use my display device which is a MX MBOX media player dual core it runs slow when playing a text scroller or scrolling general text. It even runs slow when playing moving GIF images. However it starts off at a reasonable speed, but then after around 20-30 seconds it gets slower and slower until its just running at a constant slow speed. I have limited the amount of moving objects within the display. Now It has 4 GIF images, 5 static images and 5 text scrollers and other parts made up of static text.

Ahmed,

Which player are you using?

It sounds like it could be a hardware limitation of the media player itself, a quick glance shows that model only has 1GB of ram, which is really pretty low nowadays. Can you try running this presentation on another system?

The text scroller and gif images are really taxing on the cpu and gpu. You wouldn't think it is but it really does take a lot to actually draw movement on the devices. Also arm devices with there limited gpu can be slow once you start packing a lot on them. Also the os that's on them could be an issue. Sometimes a better firmware or custom rom might be better for the device instead of the stock rom. Anyway There are a lot of factors that's can plague a device but with the amount of movement your using you need a better gpu and ram to support it. The newer android devices might be able to handle it but the older ones like that one might be an issue.

the speed is running much better on my android phone and can be used for real displays. I have ordered another android player now for future testing and will update you guys on how it runs.
