How to use
- Sign in with your Google account and grant the app permission to "see and download all your Google Drive files".
- Select the folder that you want to use as the location for signage contents from your Google Drive.
- (Set values such as display time if any and) click the "Start Signage" button to start displaying images and videos in the signage folder.
How to update contents
- Replace image and video files in the folder on your Google Drive using your laptops, smartphones etc.
- The app periodically (every 10 min.) checks updates. If the file list in the folder has changed, the app starts downloading new files. When all the files get ready, signage contents are replaced. Files that are no longer needed are removed from the device.
Note: if you want to update signage contents immediately after replacing files in the folder, you can do so by double tapping the screen.
- Images and videos in the Google Drive folder are displayed in the order of the file name. If you want to change the order, you can add numbers to the beginning of the file names (e.g., 01image.jpg, 02image.jpg) or otherwise manipulate the file name.
- Default settings are: display time (for images only), fade-in duration, fade-out duration, rotation, and scale (fit into screen / cropped to fill screen). The default settings are applied to all images and videos.
- Separate settings can be set by adding underscore-delimited values to file names (before extensions).
_d: Display time (sec.)
_i: Fade-in duration (sec.)
_o: Fade-out duration (sec.)
_r: Rotation (°)
_s: Scale (_sf: fit into screen, _sc: cropped to fill screen)
Example 1 "01image_d15_i1_o1.jpg" -> display time 15 sec., fade-in duration 1 sec., fade-out duration 1 sec.
Example 2 "02video_r90_sf.mp4" -> rotate 90°, scale to fit into screen
- Supported image and video formats follow the formats supported by Android (depending on the Android version and device).
- If the total size of the images and videos is large, it takes long time to update signage contents on devices.
