Timing issues in scheduled content

I have a schedule running with different files (images, video, weather as .swf, etc) and though I have put in the time of the video presentation, in the loop, I sometimes see the very end of the video and then it starts - this changes for different loops. It would be great to know that each time it loops I am certain of seeing the video from the start. Is there a work around or a feature for this?

Hi Blake it is a video I converted to WebM based on recommendations from Rise Vision.

Dwight,
Try putting all of the content in the same placeholder. It will function like a playlist and move from one item to the next, you'll also be able to schedule them.

Sounds good Blake and from my understanding of it this could work from one specific length video to another. So what about if I have still pics (which really have no end) in that placeholder? How do I get it to move through all the different files in that placeholder?

Dwight,

When an image widget is added to a placeholder with another item, the configuration dialog is updated to include timing.

I do not get you. Please tell me more. Do you mean the timeline within the placeholder? So say I want to run the video full length and each of the images for 15 seconds - how does that work?

Dwight,

If you have multiple items in the playlist, the configure button for each item will not bring up timing and scheduling dialog. The video will have an option to "play until done" and each item will have the option to change how many seconds it is displayed.
