Video as screensaver Fully kiosk on Fire HD?

Daran 3 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Amazon Fire • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 weeks ago 4

Hi,

I love ActionTiles - running it very successfully with konnected alarm system. It's early days but I've got to grips with most things now.  The only problem I am having is getting the Amazon fire to show a full screen video from youtube as a screensaver and getting it to play automatically.  I can get it to go full screen but on the Fire it doesn't automatically play no matter what I try.  I want to show a nice video like a drone flyover of Norway or something equally spectacular.

Has anyone had any luck showing such a video specifically from YouTube?


thanks.

I gave up on youtube but did manage to get it working via imeo!!!

Here's a few examples... just change the number after "/video/" to the vimeo video of your choice.




I've got three in my list but it will only ever play the first one - if I take the "loop=1" off, if it gets to the end of the video it just sits there in vimeo.  It would be good it the playlist was randomized every time the screensaver is activated - can this be a feature please?

Any luck from Fully Support?

to be honest I couldn't find a support forum so I thought I'd try here in case someone else had already solved the problem... but I've just realised there is an email address at the foot of their website so I'll give them a try too.
