Options & FAQ

Options can be accessed directly on the TV by using OPTIONS.

Options can be accessed directly by the player or in settings for your player.

  • Launch player on startup - This option is always enabled for BrightSign.
  • Show top menu bar - Toggle this ON if you want the top bar to appear when moving the mouse or using the remote for your player. Toggle this OFF if you want a kiosk experience where users can't exit the app by clicking the exit button on the top menu bar. You can still access the menu with the "Ctrl + o" command.
  • Optimize for touchscreen - Toggle this ON if you are planning on using our software on a touchscreen. This setting will make small adjustments to how our APP works in conjunction with a touchscreen.
  • Analytics - Toggle this ON if you need analytic data from this particular player. Read more about Analytics
  • Automatic Updates - By default, the device will check for updates and update automatically. If you disable this option, you can check for updates manually by using the "check for updates" button.
  • Synchronise Time - The Player synchronizes time with our server (adheres to the configured time zone).
  • Display Orientation - Landscape / Portrait / Portrait (counter-clockwise) options to configure your screen for portrait digital signage.
  • Time Zone - Set the time zone of the device.
  • Video Mode - Configure the output video mode for the device, see BrightSign documentation for this option.
  • Reload player every day at - It is good practice to clear the cache on the player once every 24 hours. Here you can set a time that is not inconvenient, for example at night when no one is watching your TV. Rooted devices will be rebooted, unrooted devices will simply restart our app.
  • Display on / off – Turn the display on and off based on a schedule. (Learn more)
  • Tags - If you are using tags they will be listed here. You also can find and add a tag.
  • Reboot - Reboots the device.
  • Status - Status tells you if the APP is connected to the cloud. Green means you are connected and red means you are not connected. If you see a red status you should check the internet and wifi connection to your player.
  • Device Time - The device time tells you the player's time and date. If the device time is wrong it will also be wrong in our APP and thus all time-related scheduling will be off, so make sure to correct the time on the player operating system if you are having problems.
  • Resolution - The output resolution of the device.
  • Version - This is the version of our APP
  • Screen ID - Also referred to as UID. The UID is the unique ID for your player.
  • Disc Usage - Disc usage will tell you how much data has been used on the player's storage. We do not recommend more than max. 80% storage use.
  • Screen edges - In case you have a LED screen, video wall, or an older model TV you might have to adjust the edges so that they match your TV and the content.

How do I configure network?

By default the device will use wired connection and it will get the IP address from the DHCP server. You can configure the device to use a static IP or connect to a wireless network. On the SD card you will find a file network.example.json, rename it to network.json and replace the example values with your desired configuration.
