I’m reading the intro page on github and it links to
what the heck is WebView and QTWebEngine? I’m just looking for the rPi image for screenly OSE. I noticed there was 2020-07-17-Screenly-OSE.zip under sprint release 10.1 but it looks super old. (July 2020). Is that the latest one? if not, where does one find the latest one?
I had a look inside the qt5-5.15.2-buster-pi4.tar.gz archive and it doesn’t look like a linux OS image - just a bunch of folders.
I have the same question. I wasn’t able to install Sceenly Ose on rPi 4. I got some rPi 3 running but got some problems with some web page so I tried on rPi 4 but doesn’t work at all. Maybe QT, QTWebEngine and WebView are updates but didn’t find how to install it. If somebody could answer these questions.
For the pi username, one of the easiest things to implement is a userconf.txt file that includes the pi user already created with default raspberry as password like it used to be, and gets copied to the /boot/ partition if the /home/pi directory isnt detected.
With regards to your video playback issue, have you tried a recent reinstall? including running the ./screenly/bin/upgrade_containers.sh file? because I believe this video playback issue was fixed, I just tested on my pi4 and I can play a test mp4 video just fine.
Hello! I have tried all day to install screenly OSE(anthias) on my Pi 4, model B, ver1.5. I can access it through web, bat is not displaying anything on monitor, no default assets, no images, no video. Only black image or splash image, depends on how I flashed the card. How did you manage to make it working? I tried solutions posted here…
This is required as per Raspbian OS yes.
It is very simple to set up, you either place a text file in the /boot/ directory of the SD card named userconfig.txt which needs to contain the username you want to use and hashed password, or you create it upon initial booting of the Pi, the former is a headless way of doing it, instructions are in many online places.
