Upper Menu

Main: Under the “Main” dropdown, there is only one option, which is “setup”. Selecting “setup” will open a window in which the previewer path is displayed and can be changed. The default is ffmpeg which was installed by the QuickSign software to be used to show previews of your files within the software. Users should not change this unless they have a specific alternate previewer available.

View: In the View dropdown, the software allows users to edit how the players appear in the list of media players under the players tab. The options are: Player Label Only, Player ID Only, Player Label and ID, and Player Label, ID and Player IP address.

Players: In this dropdown, users can edit player information, delete individual players or all players, use the multiplayer feature that allows the user to control multiple players at one time, show or hide on-screen information which acts as a way to identify which player is connected to a particular screen by displaying that players information on the screen for 1 or 10 minutes.

Tools: The tools dropdown contains the manual player search function to wear users can scan the network for players which have been added without having to restart the software. It also contains the button setup controls for if there are buttons attached to the GPIO inputs on the player. There is a file uploader that allows users to upload files to the MP80’s SD card. Finally there is a playback sync module that allows users to synchronize video playback on multiple players at the same time.

Maintenance: The maintenance dropdown is used to update player applications as needed.

Help: The help dropdown contains a “Help” module that users can refer to if needed when they have questions about the software and some player operations. It also has an about option which tells the user the current versions of the software, and an update module that will allow users to check for software updates and download them as necessary.

There will be more in depth explanation of the uses of the above features discussed further in these tutorials as they relate to their use.
