SMIL Player for Digital Signage

Free software and transparency are close to our hearts.

Although there are a number of SMIL-compatible media players available for purchase, you may want to use your own hardware.

Garlic Player - The free Digital Signage SMIL-Player

In addition to our CMS, we support the development of the freely available Garlic-Player.

This digital signage player was designed with the focus to enable platform-independent Digital Signage based on the open standard SMIL on as many operating systems as possible.

The software player is currently available for Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android. This expands the range of SMIL players offered and gives you, among other things, the opportunity to produce your branded hardware.

This will enable you to use not only the commercially available all-in-one products, but also other hardware that meets your needs best.

Download SMIL-Player. The source code can be found on Github.

Garlic has been released under the GNU Affero GPL3 license to ensure maximum transparency, investment security and freedom.

Build your Player Hardware

With the also free garlic-launcher, you can create a fully fledged Digital Signage Hardware from any Android device (since 7.1) within minutes.

With a simple QR code only!

The self-brewed Digital Signage Player will have all the features of a standard network player. Including remote maintenance and security functions.
