Advice on and experience with YouTube-posts on different types of hardware 🎞
Samsung SMART Signage with Tizen
Samsung screens with SSSP6 (Tizen 4.0) and SSSP5 (Tizen 3.0) works well for displaying videos from YouTube. SSSP4 (Tizen 2.4) also works, but requires more from the network and may spend more time buffering. Videos displayed on SSSP6 and SSSP5 have continued to play, despite loss of network. This is not the case on SSSP4. Some devices require an update of firmware to be able to display video. See our suggestions for hardware to read more about the screens from Samsung.
Samsung SMART Signage with built-in player (before Tizen)
Samsung with built in player, before Tizen, does not have support for displaying YouTube-posts. This applies to screens with SSSP1, SSSP2 and SSSP3. If you wish to display YouTube-posts on this type of screens, we recommend to connect a Samsung Set-back-box or Ugoos device with PinToMind-app.
Sony BRAVIA™ Professional Displays
YouTube-posts works well on Sony BRAVIA screens with Android 9.0 and newer, with the PinToMind Player app installed. We recommend a daily restart of the device for video to work optimally. See our suggestions for hardware to read more about the screens from Sony.
Windows with PinToMind app
We find that YouTube on Windows works very well. But there are many different Windows devices and how it works on your screen depends on what equipment you have. We recommend that you use the PinToMind Player app for Windows.
Chromebox with PinToMind app
Chromebox works well when displaying YouTube-posts, and provides a stabile display. With PinToMind Player, the Chromebox will get a daily restart, so that the internal memory will be emptied and all posts are retrieved anew.
Philips with Android (Q-Line, D-Line and P-Line)
Tests we have done, shows that the screens work well when they are set up to use the built-in browser. We don't do the same testing for this type of screens as we do for the Samsung Smart Signage with Tizen.
PC or Mac with browser
PC or Mac with browser work very well in our tests, but demand a daily restart. We have the best experience with using Google Chrome, and no matter the browser type, make sure it is an updated version. Check also that the browser of the machine that displays the public screen is set up to use HTML5-display of YouTube.
