Auto play new uploaded content
« on: August 29, 2022, 07:36:06 AM »
Hello guys,
I have 3 displays in 3 different rooms. I'm playing a few images and .pdf files of all of them and for this task, I have created 3 playlists.

  • Display1 - playlist1
  • Display2 - playlist2
  • Display3 - playlist3

Now I want to start adding additional pdf files dynamically (daily reports) and play them on the screens automatically. Example:

Today 29.08.2022
  • Display1 - playlist1 + room1_report_2908.pdf
  • Display2 - playlist2 + room2_report_2908.pdf
  • Display3 - playlist3 + room3_report_2908.pdf

Tomorrow 30.08.2022
  • Display1 - playlist1 + room1_report_3008.pdf
  • Display2 - playlist2 + room2_report_3008.pdf
  • Display3 - playlist3 + room3_report_3008.pdf

These daily files (room*_report_date*.pdf) will be automatically generated in 3 different folders on the MagicInfo server.

Now the question: is it possible to add files to an already existing playlist automatically? Something like a scheduling process to check for new files in a specific folder and add them to a specific playlist :)

Dear dunapack,

Perhaps it is an idea to see if you can work with FTP/ CIFS and then also with tags in MagicINFO. Then you have this almost automatically set up.
Another possibility would be to see if you can generate some kind of URL from your repot system and publish this to your screens.

Good to know you can add run dates to your content items in the playlist section.

Both options do require the Premium connection.

Hope this info will help you.

Kind regards,
Pepijn.
