Repeat Signage digital signage software

You need to create one or more presentations before you use play lists.  Play lists allow you to choose when to display presentations, or simply select a number of presentations and have them look around.  A single play list can be created for all your Repeat Signage player computers.   Playlists can play local presentation on your computer or network drives.  You can upload your play list to your website or and point player computers at it from anywhere in the world to download and play your play list and presentations.  Each player computer will need Internet access to do this.

See Play lists and play list types for more information.

Creating and editing play lists

Use the 'Create new play list' and 'Open play list buttons'.  Once you have a play list open, then use the F1 key on your keyboard to display details help on playlists.  When your play list is open the help page on the play list screen gives comprehensive information on scheduling presentations.

Playing play lists from a website (Standard and above editions)

This allows you to put the URL of a play list you have hosted on a website.  For example, these are four different play lists hosted on our website:

Each of these play lists contains a list of presentations to play at specific times, but each presentation is also hosted at, so Repeat Signage will download and play these presentations automatically. 

With the Standard and above editions, you can play a play list which has been uploaded to a website.  The reason you may want to do this is so that you can get a Repeat Signage Player at a remote location to play a hosted play list and then you can upload a new version to the website when you have made changes, and the remote player will automatically download and play this new version.

Please note that if you put play lists or presentation on some websites, the website will need a MIME type configuring otherwise you may get a 'Cannot download your chosen file' message.
