BurningThumb updates Video Kiosk – Android: version 5.7.0 released


Richmond, Canada — BurningThumb Studios has released a new version of Video Kiosk, its Android looping video app. Version 5.7.0 of Video Kiosk adds customization options when using the 4-panel digital signage screen, as well as a new way to control content playback using the location of the device.

When using Video Kiosk in the 4-panel digital signage widget mode, you can now control both the padding between the widget areas as well as the size of each area, allowing you to increase the size, decrease the size or eliminate panels.

The ability to control playback based on the location of the device was also added in this release. This simplifies the deployment of large numbers of devices since it allows control of playback based on the location of the device. Rather than deploying devices with different playlists configured on each for different locations, devices can be deployed with one playlist. When the device is started up, it will identify where it is geographically located and play the content configured for that location.

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.
