Video and Slideshow Together - with rapid changes.

HI Guys, 

Trying to find a way to push Video's and Images together. I want to be able to rapid fire push images to the Rise Storage and not touch the presentation. I used to use this with Picasa, but I think it has a 4 hour refresh. 

Currently I have the "Image Widget" - I wanted to add another placeholder of a Video, but I cant seem to get the timing right, I think I may need to keep with the "single Image" link and a video placeholder. 

I am trying to live stream photos from a networking event. 

Any ideas?

Hi Charles,
For this, you may need to set up a separate website that you have access to change the content and link via the Webpage Widget which is a minimum data refresh interval of 1 minute. If you are using social media content, another suggestion is using the Storify platform, embedding it to digital signage and then adding a data interval refresh rate to the Webpage Widget.

With the current Image Widget - If I add a photo, does it auto apply to the display without a reload?

Hi,
If using the Image Widget and linking to a Folder, the Player will still need to be reloaded to fetch new resources. You can do a test by adding in an Image Widget linking to a folder in Rise Storage that is empty and then adding an image sample to that folder in Storage - the image sample will appear when Rise Player has been restarted.

If you are adding in an individual (ie linking to one image) Image Widget, it is possible to do update your Display with new photos without having to restart Player. But you will still need to have access to the Editor to add the Image Widget and save those changes.

HI Guys, Still having an issue with this. I paid for the storage, but I don't think it will work the way I want it to, for the end user the storage is a bit cumbersome. I used to use the picassa web album to handle this, is there a way to use something like wordpress to publish photos and link to it with a presentation?

Hi Charles,
If you wanted to continue using Picasa and use Wordpress to host, there seems to be plugins available such as https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/p...
I personally haven't use Wordpress/Picasa plugins. But if you are able to upload new photos on your Picasa album and if the plugin can reflect these changes on Wordpress you may want to link that photo gallery using the Webpage Widget where the minimum data refresh interval is 1 minutes.
