BurningThumb updates Video Kiosk – Android: version 5.4 released


Richmond, Canada — BurningThumb Studios has released a new version of Video Kiosk, its Android looping video app. Version 5.4.0 of Video Kiosk. This release adds two new features:

  • It adds support for web views in Widget Areas so you can use http:// or file:// URLs to display content. This allows you to play videos, animated GIFs, or Javascript programs in the widget areas.
  • It adds support for swipe gesture to move to previous and next media item

Video Kiosk is an easy to use, full-featured video app for that can play video and images in a robust, reliable loop on any Android TV, Android Tablet or Android phone. Video Kiosk was designed specifically to be both full featured and easy to use, so that users can enjoy a full range of video display features or just show a video in a loop.

Developed to show a folder of videos at a Dojo, Video Kiosk has evolved in to a full-featured looping video player that not only supports Kiosk Mode, its original purpose, but also Interactive Kiosk Mode, Digital Signage Mode and Web Kiosk Mode.

Video Kiosk offers robust playback that skips bad video files instead of pausing and will automatically re-boot rooted devices so that content will automatically start playing again after reboot, so human intervention is not required. Video Kiosk is flexible so when the media files in the folder are changed, the new selection of media will play the next time the loop starts. Content as well as configuration files can be remotely managed using a cloud service, such as Google Drive or Dropbox. This combination of features delivers a robust, flexible Video Kiosk can be remotely managed from anywhere there is an internet connection.
