All you need is a device to attach to your screens, such as an old PC, Mac or Raspberry Pi an internet connection and a TV screen. Any old 1080p TV screen will be fine and any old PC will also work just fine as a "player" device. The player is any device that is running the VuePilot software and connected to your screen. You can then control this device from anywhere in the world via the online dashboard. Make use of those old desktop PCs or buy a small portable device, it's up to you.
Yep, sure can. You can deactivate and activate your licenses your self. See here for more info
From the software, simply click into settings then check both "Launch On Login" and "Auto Run On Start" "Launch On Login" will start the software when the machine logs in and "Auto Run On Start" will start the rotation when the software runs
Updates are automatic, when a new version is released, upon restarting the software it will check for new versions and prompt you with a button to apply the update and restart. If you don't want to use automatic updates, you can disable them from the settings panel on the software then simply download the latest version from the downloads page and run the installer. It will overwrite the old version and leave your licensing information and configuration intact. You do not have to reactivate or reconfigure the software.
From the rotations page, there is an "Interval" setting per URL. This is the number of seconds the page will be displayed for before changing to the next.
This is not quite as simple as it sounds, however there are a few options that you can try. Please see this article for more information
We offer a Power BI app that makes displaying your Microsoft Power BI reports simple. See How To Display Power BI Reports On Screens In Your Office for more information
Yes! Using the VuePilot dashboard you can update, start, stop, pause, hijack and manage rotations on any remote screen
This is usually caused by an invalid certificate or the usage of a "self signed certificate". If you open the same page in Chrome and it informs you that the page is insecure and that you must manually permit it, then VuePilot will simply display a blank white page. Self signed certificate support is disabled by default for security reasons, but you can enable it from the settings panel of the VuePilot software, look for the setting named "Self Signed Certificates"
Yes, each time the page changes, the URL is refreshed. Just like you typed it into the browser and hit enter
Nope, your license is valid for any operating system. You are free to activate any license on any operating system. Same price, same features.
Yes! If you require a large number of licenses, please contact us to discuss a custom pricing solution
Yes! Although you will need to contact us and request and "offline license". We will generate this for you and send it back to which you can use the "offline registration" feature. Please keep in mind that offline usage will disable all of the remote control and synchronisation functionality
Chances are you're trying to run a 64bit version of the software on a 32bit operating system. Please be aware that many "compute sticks" run 32bit versions of Windows, so you'll need to use the 32bit version of the software
If you no longer have access to a machine but it still has a license attached to it you can deactivate it from the dashboard or contact us and we can release the license for you. It's always better to perform the deactivation from the software yourself however as there are a number of other cleanup steps that happen on your account.
