Unanswered Question
Jun 25th, 2010

Please correct me if i am wrong, but i can not find any way to determine what is actually playing/displaying by the DMP in real time.

I need this so i can determine what's currently playing without having to visit each dmp.

Any thoughts?

Thank you

I have this problem too.

This functionality is not available at this time.  You have Proof of Play reporting

which shows what content is started at each PoP event.  That said, there is no

way to see what is actually playing real time on the display.

This Feature is being looked at and may be available in a future release.

Please keep monitoring for DMS announcements.

I have part of the answer.

You can create a System Task under Advanced Task that does a GET with a command p=init.BROWSER_CMD

When you use this as an Action for a selection of DMPs you will get something like this:

https://admin:[email protected]:7777/get_param?p=init.BROWSER_CMD&init.pop_enable=false
9:25:36 AM

This indicates that the DMP is streaming a presentation from the server
https://admin:[email protected]:7777/get_param?p=init.BROWSER_CMD&init.pop_enable=false
9:28:32 AM
init.BROWSER_CMD     T_STRING     file:///tmp/ftproot/usb_1/deployment/xTAS-core/appgen/clad/http_pull_61_clad_57_.htm

This indicates running from Local Storage.
I am looking for a way to match the clad_57_.htm with the Name of the Presentation.

Hope this helps.

The MIB command that you mention only displays the BROWSER plane.

If there is Multicast streaming playing this MIB does not account for


As for matching the CLAD name which content asset, you will have to do this


When you deploy the asset to the DMP, the DMM creates a GOTO URL.  You

will need to match the "file:///tmp/ftproot/usb_1/deployment/xTAS-core/appgen/clad/http_pull_61_clad_57_.htm"

to matching GOTO URL in the Advanced Tasks of the DMM-DSM.
