As of "today" there's is only a spin-off version of 'screenly' (search above) that support "catching" (meaning saving content locally).iain1940 wrote:This is a very noobie request from someone who ought to know the answer.
I have installed screenly and hope to use it for an information system at my golf club.
I have got web pages displayed fine but am at a loss on the url format needed to display images.
Ideally I would like to hold images (and web pages?) locally on the rpi either on the sd card or on a memory stick.
A simple 'examples' section on the home page would be a help.
Sorry to post such an elementary question but Screenly is such a great system for easily and cheaply displaying information I have to get it working .
The format I use in images is "JPG". You need "MP4" for videos and whatever (flash apart? no idea) for web content.
The easiest way to use images is to use a dropbox (or similar service) account. By putting an image to the Dropbox Public folder and right-clicking on a mac, you get a "public link". Just paste the link in your screenly "add asset" menu and you're all set
