Display your medias on your screens in 3 steps:
This tutorial will help you configure your own Playlist.
The Library is an online space where you can upload and stock your files (pictures, videos, musics, urls and templates). Upload your files in your Library by clicking on the "Add" button (located at the top of the Library).
Add a picture or a movie: Upload it from your computer.
Add an Internet website or video stream: Type the website that you would like to display.
Add a HTML page: Select a template, edit and name it.
Once the fields have been filled, click on "Submit" to upload data to your Library.
Note: The upload can take a few minutes depending of the size of your files.
The Library "Total Size" is limited to 1Gb (listed on the top of the Library panel).
To modify a template, click on the reading glass just opposite to the file. To remove a file from the Library, click on the cross just opposite to the file.
Linutop TV formats:
A template is a html page which can be edited. You can place a picture or a text. Linutop TV offers some pre-edited models.
To add a Template, click on one of the pre-edited templates, then "Submit"
You are now able to configure the template according to two different methods.
Select the text or the picture to change. In the left window, type the new text or upload the new picture and click "Submit".
Select the "Code" tab in the left window. You will access to the source code of the template. Any code modification will change immediatly the template preview.
A Playlist is a list of different medias, which are present in your Library.
Drag a media from your Library and drop it on your Playlist.
Delete a file from your Playlist by clicking on the red cross associated with the file (at the end of its line). It will be the same process to delete a Playlist or a loop.
The loops are used to organize the Playlist. They allow for example to:
Add a loop by clicking on the "new loop" button.
The Playlists are saved automatically after each change. The result will not be displayed immediatly on your screens
The displayed Playlist is updated every 30 minutes by default. This can be changed in the Linutop Kiosk configuration.
Additionally, the displayed loop changes after the current one has ended.
If you need or want to see your modifications sooner:
To delete a Playlist, select it and click on the red cross on the right side of the "new loop" button.
