Once created, Feeds:
  • Can be used like any other assets in Playlist, Schedule, or Split Screen.
  • Can be cached to players' local storage, so most Feeds will not depend on an internet connection to play.
  • Curated YouTube feeds (Relax-Reel) will require an internet connection to play.

Recommended Duration:

Each feed has a recommended duration. This way it helps keep the screen fresh, not repetitive content.

For example: Safety feeds totaled about 4 minutes, and its recommended duration is 30s. So, that will be 2 slides of the feeds shown when in a playlist. The next time the playlist loops back to the feed, it will continue to the next slides on the feeds, till it finishes the 4 minutes. Afterward, it will then loop back.

That's it!
