Sync all files of folder

Thu Feb 23, 2012 9:21 am

Hi there!

Is it possible to synchronize a folder with all files by "Simple file network"? The scenario should be to synchronize always a jpeg which is generated by a server and saved on the web-server. This file is downloaded by an brightsign machine. The whole system should work automatically.

I'm looking forward to your answers

thanks

Stephan

The simplest way to do this would be to use a media rss feed. Add a feed to your project, and then your webserver would generate an updated xml file pointing to the new files, and the brightsign would pull down the new files in the media rss feed.

OK. Thanks for your answer Lyndon. This works fine, but now I have some problems with updating the content. This is the xml-file with the first picture:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/">

   </item>

</rss>


Then I will load another picture with this code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/">

The player is set to "update every minute" - but it don't update every minute. I think it's even more every 15 minutes - but in my case this is to much time. In the autoplay it looks fine:

<rssDownloadSpec type="periodic" value="60" />


What goes wrong? Or rather what does this parameter "periodic" do?

that setting is for standard rss feeds. Send the autorun.brs file from one of your published flash cards, to support, and i'll look for where the timer is for the media rss feeds.

Any update on this? How about posting the line from the Autorun that needs to be edited? In my case, one minute isn't nearly fast enough. I need to update every 5 to 10 seconds. I can make the change in the XML, but it doesn't seem to effect all of the RSS feeds I have on the screen (four of them).


Thanks,

Chris
