Hi, in this instructables we are going to create our own digital signage system with Screenly. Previously, in the instructable of " Diy Digital Signage with Xibo ", we used windows pc for client screens. But using Windows PC may not be good choice in terms of place and energy efficiency. The most important feature of Screenly is that it runs on Raspberry Pi, a tiny, credit card size computer.
It is both user friendly and energy sufficient. From such a small package, Screenly delivers good performance. It can play flawless full p HD video, render web content and do more. Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. As you see, there is a free option and the other options starts from about 10 dollars per month.
You can also manage the timing and the content for screens. If you use 1 or 2 screens, it is satisfactory enough. But if you want to control many screens, controlling them will be very difficult. So, for small businesses, if several screens are enough for you, then open source edition is pretty useful.
Download the custom image The by far quickest way to get started with Screenly OSE is to download our custom image. Upon the first boot, Screenly will start automatically and display the splash-screen, a web-page screenlyapp. The disk image was created for a 4GB SD-card. It is recommended that you use at least an 8GB card.
In order to access the tools required, you first disable the video from the web interface. Hence it is important that you change the default password. Watch the video above to see how your photos, videos or web pages will be published on the raspberry pi by using the interface. Very easy to install, connect to a network, connect to Screenly, upload content, back-up your image, run it, restore it on micro-SD cards.Our very first native player built for the Xibo CMS.

This is far as I have been able to go. This is the step where you need to have Berkelium and the other software. Both of which require more to render than is available on the pi. I had to put it on hold u til I can figure out how to create an emulator to get it.
I forgot to mention that you have to comment out the following line: self. Thursday, August 2, Xibo on Raspberry Pi. Ok, so i know I haven't posted much at all since I started this but I have been busy teaching students and haven't had time to keep updating a blog that no one will check often. Hopefully someone with knowledge can do that. Berkelium is required, Hexxeh's Chromium is currently not compatible with Xibo, so I don't know if that can be fixed.
This is as far as I have been able to go before the script tells me that the version of Berkelium is not compatible.
I hope that sometime this will be fixed, but until then this is what I got so far. It is close, but still not working. I will edit as I get it working.
If someone else gets this going please message me and I would be glad to test it out. I have moved away from Xibo signage and am just using my own php page with iframes to do what I want to accomplish.
At some time I might get back into it. Anyway, good luck. Unknown August 28, at PM. Tobias Unruh October 8, at PM. Unknown October 25, at PM. Ulrich von Zadow November 27, at PM.

Hi all, Is there a way of using the raspberry pi for digital signagewe currently run xibo for our windows device however online forums says the pi isn't supported or it's too difficult.
Any suggestions other than screenly help as we're looking for a free alternative Thankyou! Screenly and piSignage are both designed for the Pi. Both have minimal free offerings or don't cost too much to license. The IT guy before me set up Screenly on a raspberry Pi. I'm pretty sure its free. No idea how it all integrates but it seems to work well.
If anyone knows if any instructions regarding the setup it would be much appreciated. It works well for is I'd just panic if it went down. Somehow it has a static IP and I can log into it from a browser. Last edited 26th March at PM. There is a general version and one which is optimised for signage and kiosks. It was really easy to set up and all the options etc are configurable via the GUI so no annoying 'sudo-ing!
Works great. I used google sites to create the info screen with embedded Google docs and a Google Slideshow that are nice and accessible for our Office staff to edit.
We just set up some Raspberry Pis to replace our xibo system.
