A digital signage player is strictly speaking a media player software, but there are differences to conventional media players.
In this tutorial we will describe how you can connect your Digital Signage SMIL media player (IAdea or Garlic-Player) with the SmilControl CMS via the Internet.
SMIL is based on XML and, like HTML, it is a markup language. It was created to play multimedia content (audio, video, images, etc.) synchronized in time. The W3C standardized the first version in 1998 and expanded in the following years. The current standard in version 3.0 was approved in 2008.
This is a relatively complex topic, and hence it is classified into two segments. The first part emphasizes why it actually make sense to use Digital Signage Linux media player while the second part in the coming days explains, where traps will exist.
We’re here to guide you through if you’re looking for answers to your queries regarding Digital Signage and Raspberry Pi combination. As you know, you need an engine behind your display to operate Digital Signage. And this is where Raspberry Pi might come into action.
