Title: Streaming video (bbc News)
Post by: d4vey on November 01, 2012, 01:15:20 PM
Hi

Just getting to grip with all of this but have a problem. I have put streaming news on a screen http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio. When I view this on the computer it works fine, however, when I publish it, it appears on the "TV" but says that I need to update flash player. Any ideas?

Hi

connect to the screen via VNC then update the flash player from the Adobe site, the TV is a screen with a built in PC.

If the screen PC has EWF commit the change or it will revert back when rebooted..

Well yes, you need to install the latest Adobe Flash Player. Depending to what screen you have, make sure that you download the Flash Player from the www.adobe.com website.
