Video Kiosk Schedule Calendar Command Reference Guide



Android Calendar or Google Calendar may also be used to control Video Kiosk’s behavior. Video Kiosk will check the calendar and execute commands based on the time and description of the calendar entry. By default, at the time of the calendar event, Video Kiosk will start playing the loop according to how the Playback Order is set, and stop playing at the end of the calendar event. To change this behaviour, include these commands in the description of the calendar entry.

 

Command Arguments Description
videokiosk_display_state {alwayson, eventon, eventoff} Set the display state to always on (scheduled events will not change the display), On for events, otherwise off (scheduled events will turn the display on, otherwise the display will be off), or Off for events, otherwise on (scheduled events will turn the display off, otherwise the display will be on).   Changing this will update the settings.

If the videokiosk_display command is present it over rides this setting for that specific event.

videokiosk_path /path/to/folder Set the playback path used by Video Kiosk. This is the same as changing the playback folder in the App by clicking the folder icon in the button bar.   Changing this will update the settings.

If you want to temporarily change the path, just for this event, you need to create 2 events. The first event should set the temporary path and it should be followed immediately by the second event that resets the original path.

videokiosk_display {on,off} Turn the display on or off for this one event. This overrides the display state but only for this one event. For example, if the default is display on, you can turn display off for specific events using this command.

Examples:

To turn content display off for just one event add this line to the event description:

videokiosk_display=off

To change the path to the content folder (be careful the path depends on the device so check the path with a file browser on your device prior to using this command) add this line to the event description:

videokiosk_path=/mnt/sdcard/Current Schedule
