Is it possible to store several AVI files on the Raspberry Pi's SD card rather than download them every reset/reboot? If yes, how do I set up and access the subdirectory.

Thank You

Hello, thanks for your question! 

From what I gather, you are interested in hosting your media locally. Let me look into Pi Player specifically and see if this can be done. I'll get back to you as soon as I have a solid answer.

Thank You Blake. As an example, This is for the Club. We have several short presentations that are 2 - 3 min. in duration. It seems a waist of time to wait to download those, Logos, and Pictures that could be stored on the Pi. The Logos and 2 presentations will never change.

It looks like Pi Player uses Rise Cache to store media, so it will need to connect to our storage any time it is refreshed. It doesn't look like we support any local storage of media at this time.

Blake,
Thank you for the assistance. Your comment "our storage" made me realize and a quick search lead me to this:

https://community.risevision.com/rise...

For the users that are on limited/slow bandwidth. accessing in-house NAS (Network attached Storage) is 100Mbit internal download vs slow internet.

Thanks for the wake up.
I will try this this week.
