Equipment and settings

❗️Video is a post type that requires a certain type of equipment to work. Therefore, video will not work on all types of equipment. Below is a list of equipment, which are compatible with the video solution.

Chrome

Video is supported in both Google Chrome and Chrome App. This means that video works in the Chrome browser on eg. Windows, and via the PinToMind Player-app on a Chromebit/Chromebox. It does not require extra settings and the video plays well. A daily restart of the unit is required for the video solution to work optimally.

Samsung with SSSP and Tizen

Video is supported on Samsung SSSP4/SSSP5/SSSP6 screens. Video requires installation of the PinToMind Player-app, and that you do not use the built in browser with screen code to display the content from PinToMind. 
We are aware of a problem with playback on some of the Samsung screens, eg. that the screen skips the video-post. A solution to this problem could be an update of the screen software. Contact us at support@pintomind.com if you experience a similar problem. 

Because of technical limitations on some Samsung screens, the Video post and the YouTube post should not be used at the same time on the same screen. 

No sound on Video?

Tips:

  • Check that the sound is turned on, and volume is turned up, on the screen/device that displays the screen content.
  • Select Sound when creating or editing the Video-post.

Sound on video on Chrome device

  • Chrome OS WITH Chrome-upgrade: Video and YouTube posts appear with and without audio on Chrome OS devices with Chrome-upgrade.
  • Chrome OS WITHOUT Chrome-upgrade: The video is displayed on the screen, but without sound, even if sound is selected in the post.
  • Chrome browser without Chrome OS and kiosk mode: If you try to display video in a Chrome browser without Chrome OS and kiosk mode, you can change the playback permission manually. Open chrome://settings/content/sound in the browser and add the address, app.pintomind.com, which you want to be able to play audio on videos automatically, under "Allow". 

Feedback or questions?

Video is a big challenge. Uploading, converting, storing, publishing and playback together makes video a complicated process. If you experience any challenges along the way, please contact us with your feedback and questions at support@pintomind.com.
