I purchased some chromeboxes to run rise vision for my church/school. I am following the steps on setting up Chrome OS in the Google Admin Console but when I get to the Kiosk Apps, I am having trouble. When I search for the Rise Player in the Chrome Web Store, the only app the come back is the Chrome Sign Builder. How can I the Rise Player to be a Kiosk App if it does not come up after a search. Is there a custom ID and URL that I can use instead?

Hi Mike,

This is because the Chrome App Player is now unlisted, and you can only access it from our Create a Display Page: https://help.risevision.com/user/create-a-display

One thing I'd like to point out so that you are aware (you'll also see this on the Create a Display page) is that we have put further development of the Rise Vision Chrome Application Player on hold due to issues we have had with providing a reliable service with Chrome Applications. We are continuing to make the Chrome App Player available to those that prefer to use it with Chrome OS, but please be advised that this is not our recommended solution as of this writing. We are continuing to monitor the Chrome Application platform and should the circumstances change we will reconsider restarting the project.

I know you have purchased Chromeboxes, but if possible, I would strongly recommend to go with a Windows or Linux media player, and use our native player that you can download on that same page.

Thanks!

Thank you for your advice. I would consider changing directions on the website you listed if it is no longer an option to get the Rise Player in the Google Device Management.

Mike,

Can I ask what website you are referring to? I want to make sure that there is nowhere out there where this is a recommended device.

Thanks!

Hi Robb, the "Create a display" page no longer exists. Where is the Chrome application currently available?
