YouTube Advisory

If you are using YouTube videos in your ScreenScape display, please be advised:

A recent change by the Google team to the proprietary YouTube player has introduced unstable behavior when playing YouTube videos.

Users affected by this error may observe a black screen when playing attempting to play YouTube videos inside the Smart Player (v1) application. The black screen condition may persist for up to 44 minutes, after which the Smart Player will recover and continue. The condition re-occurs at each instance of YouTube content in a playlist.

Google is aware of this issue and is working on a resolution. In the interim, if you observe this condition ScreenScape recommends that you remove all YouTube content from your playlist (‘Unpublish from display’) and reboot your media player.

Another solution is to use hosted video templates. Using hosted videos instead of YouTube is a better choice for your ScreenScape display. Hosted videos require less bandwidth, will play online or offline, and are free of advertisements

New Feature: Venue Preferences

Preferences - Data ServicesThis morning ScreenScape added a new feature to the service called “Venue Preferences”.

The ScreenScape solution is designed from the ground up for large distributed networks. Many of our networks are made up of central Group managers who collaborate with dozens or hundreds of Venue managers at the local level. Our ongoing challenge is to introduce new features that strike the right balance between centralized control for the Group manager and empowerment of Venues at the local level.

Today we added yet another feature designed to help strike that balance. “Venue Preference” is a new tool to help automate the publishing of Weather and News content at the local level. It doubles as a handy default setting for Venues and a power-user tool for Groups.

For Venues, it saves on repetitive tasks like defining local weather settings, or recalling the URL string of your blog’s RSS feed. More here:

For Groups, it provides a way to publish a single Content item to 100’s of locations with auto-customized weather and news for every Venue. More here:

We hope you like it!
