Where is Browser Player content stored?
All data and media for the browser player is stored in IndexedDB, when the player starts up, it does a check for IndexedDB support, and if it is not supported on a player, then it will say so and not load any further.
If you were to clear the IndexedDB data, then Signagelive would attempt to register as if it was a new install.
Can I use any Browser?
Not quite. While you might be able to set up your Browser Player in any Browser, unless it is listed in this article then you may be missing some features that ensure the best performance.
Can I use the Browser Player to host web content from my intranet?
Yes! And that’s an ideal use of the Browser. However, it’s worth noting that if your intranet is password-protected, then the Browser Player won’t be able to access your content unless your intranet allows that device to access the webpage without entering a password.
If you have a web page or web service that needs authentication, then why not reach out to our sales team? We might be able to create an app to provide a solution!
Can I show videos with the Browser Player?
Yes, you can! However, they will need to be streamed through our YouTube App However, if you’re using the Browser Player in conjunction with a Web Content Licence, then you need to stream it.
I’m currently showing web content with a standard licence, can I change to a Web Content Licence?
Certainly. However, we cannot convert one licence type to another. This means you will need to deactivate your standard licence, add a Web Content Licence, and activate your Browser Player with this. If there is time remaining on your Standard Licence then unfortunately it will be lost unless you choose to activate it on another player.
