How much storage is available on the mediaDROID?
The mediaDROID has 16GB for local storage of campaign caching. It is powered by an intelligent caching mechanism that will
remove unnecessary files, so it can accommodate best caching techniques for the current running playback.
What are the recommended reboot conditions for the mediaDROID?
Though the mediaDROID is capable of running for months without a single reboot (or even longer), it is still recommended to at least restart your
SignagePlayer app or reboot your device. A daily restart comes handy if you are running a heavy presentation and wish to clear all
memory and CPU buffers at a specific time of the day. For example, if your business is open from 9AM in the morning to 7PM in the evening, you may choose
to restart the mediaDROID every morning at 8:50 (10 minutes before the business opens).
What's the best way to start the SignagePlayer on the mediaDROID?
For best practice it's recommended you power cycle the device and let the Signage Watchdog auto launch the SignagePlayer. This will ensure proper socket
connection between the Signage Watchdog and SignagePlayer. The socket connection between the Signage Watchdog and SignagePlayer is used to confirm the health
status of the SignagePlayer.
