three issues on DMP4400+DMM5.2

hi all,

i have basically 3 questions for the system in subject,

1) "play in future" does not work, java machine installed and updated but it is in a different language from the browser, can this be a problem?

2) to display smtg on the screen via the DMP, i need to upload contents with FTP, using the DMP manager i need to select an Action for the

ftp upload, and then the DMP reboots. but the uploaded content (presentation or playlist stored in /tmp/usb_1) it is not automatically displayed, i need to

select another Action "(Go to )URL" and then select the LOCAL-presentation/playlist and the it starts playing it.

is there a way to automatically display the uploaded content immediately after reboot?

3) as i told on 2) the only way i've found to display contents on the DMP is to upload them, because if i try to "Play now" a playlist from the Schedule menu, nothing happens. i select "digital signage" from Sytem even type, then i select the playlist/presentation to be displayed and the submit.

but nothing happens.

can this be related to the absence of WAAS and ACNS services?

thank you very much!

1.


* What is your browser Language\regional settings set to?

The regional settings must be english/US

If the Browser is not set to "english/US" this is most likely

the problem.



2.


I have attached some documents that will help you

accomplish this task.



If you had access to a Digital Media Manager(DMM) with a

Digital Signage Module(DSM), you could perform the following

Steps:


* Add the Media content item to the Media Library on the Digital

  Media Manager(DMM)-Digital Signage Module(DSM)


* Create a Playlist or Presentation with this Media Content item


* Go to the DMM-DSM, Under the ADVANCED TASKS Tab select the

  Application Type "File Transfer to DMP or server"


* Select "Add New Application"

- Select the appropriate Presentation or Playlist

- Press the "Select Application" Button

- Press the "Submit" Button


* Once the "File Transfer to DMP or server" is added, you can run

  this Task to copy the content locally to the DMP.

- Go to the DMM-DSM DMP Manager and select the desired DMP

- Under the Actions Drop Down, Select the "File Transfer to DMP or server" Task

   you created and Click GO.

- The Files will copy the presentation or playlist information to the selected(s) DMPs.


* The DMM-DSM will GENERATE a "(Go to) URL entry" in the Advanced Tasks.

  In order to see the NAME & URL PATH of the "File Transfer..." Task, Go to

  the DMM-DSM, Under the ADVANCED TASKS Tab select the Application Type "(Go to) URL entry"

  and it will list the NAME "LOCAL--" playlist\presentation name.

- Select "Edit Application"

- Record the LOCAL URL PATH

   ie.  file:///tmp/ftproot/usb_1/deployment/xTAS-core/api/xml/app/playlist/http_pull_86_start_playlist_85_.htm


* You can RUN this Task LOCALLY using the DMP-Device Manager(DM) or Under the Actions

  Drop Down on the DMM-DSM DMP Manager.

****************************


If you do NOT access to a Digital Media Manager(DMM) with a

Digital Signage Module(DSM), you could use a Custom HTML file

or JAVA Script to use for a Playlist of Locally Stored Video Files.


Note: This method is NOT officially supported and the Cisco TAC

will not support issues with the DMP in relation to the javascript

or custom htmls.


Checkout the Following Sample HTML files:

-------------------------------------------


The "Local-mpg-file.pdf" is a sample of HTML code that plays

the Locally Stored Video File(s): Local-mpg-file.pdf


The "Local-mpg-http.pdf" is a sample of HTML code that plays

the Remote Video File(s) that are locate on a Web Server: Local-mpg-http.pdf


Note: The ".HTML" file & the Video Content File(s) will need

to be ftpd to the Local Storage device on the DMP(s).
