    I am not able to get the URL to play in a playlist - does this kind of asset only work in a layout?

    Hello Brad,

    Yes the web assets work in a fullscreen playlist, so you should be able to show them on your player.

    Just drag and drop the web asset into a playlist as normal, then deploy the playlist.

    However, RSS feeds can be only shown within layouts.

    If you feel you need assistance with this please come to our live chat support service.

    Thank you for contacting Signagelive.
