Fullscreen Browser | Loading problem with disabled duration

#1

Hi, we’ve encountered a problem with ‘Fullscreen Browser’ package. Setting ‘duration’ to ‘disable’ in the Content configuration tab, the web page doesn’t show up (it stuck on package loading logo). Everything works fine with the others duration values. Thanks for your help!

I guess the wording isn’t good in that case: Disabled means that the corresponding page isn’t displayed at all. I think that was some user request a while ago. There is no option to show a page forever, which I guess is what you want?

Hi, yes indeed it is what we want (Develop.iakta is a collegue of mine).

The bug though still remains for Disabled option.
Thanks anyway

Not sure I would technically count that as a bug: The Disabled options means: Don’t show this item. If the resulting playlist is empty, nothing can be shown and the loading animation waits until the configuration changes to one more useful.

could there be a open for alway plays as if you just have a single url it will refresh every 10 minutes.

Sure. That’s possible, although I think that might be a bit risky. I would guess the use case for that is to load some kind of dashboard that auto-refreshes itself? In that case, what should happen if the initial page load doesn’t work for some reason? Like there’s some hiccup, the network was down or something like that. In that case, the browser just shows some error page indefinitely as there’s no real way to detect that.

Right now some external process forces a refresh after at most 10 minutes. So something temporary might break it for 10 minutes max. Ideas welcome.

Yes you are correct: it is not a bug :slight_smile:
