How to set up OptiSigns Player on Raspberry Pi 5

OptiSigns player is tested and supported on Raspberry Pi 5. Overall the performance is very smooth.

Our engineers are working on a prebuilt image, but in the meantime, you can use a Raspberry Pi 5 OS Stock 64-bit image and set up OptiSigns to run on it.

Here are the steps:

1. Download Raspberry Pi Imager

Run it and install Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit on your SDCard.

2. Boot up & connect to WiFi & and download/copy OptiSigns ARM64 AppImage to your Raspberry Pi.

Once Downloaded, open File Explorer, right-click on the downloaded file, and select Properties.

In the Properties box. Click the Permissions tab in the Access Control → Execute drop-down.

Select AnyoneThen Click OK.

3. Install Fuse (required to run the AppImage program on your RPi)

Open Terminal and run:

sudo apt-get install fuse libfuse2

4. Double-click on the optisigns-arm64.AppImage file to execute it. In the pop-up, select Execute.

It makes take a few seconds to load. The app will run and generate a pairing code for you to pair with the app.optisigns.com portal.

You can also move the mouse around and see the top three buttons to resize, open the sidebar menu, or close the app.

On the side menu, you can set Orientation, etc.

To make sure OptiSigns start in full screen.

Select "Override Resolution"

Change to: 0, 0, 1920, 1080 like below.

Change resolution to 1920x1080, you can run in 4K it's fine for most cases, but we recommend 1080p for better performance.
