    Hi there David,

    Funny you should ask, we just put this announcement into our forum: https://www.risevision.com/blog/coming-soon-chrome-os.

    Be sure to subscribe to our blog for the latest updates on the upcoming ChromeOS Player!

    Try this:

    Configure Single App Kiosk Mode for Unmanaged Devices

    Before configuring your device for Kiosk Mode, you’ll need to recover your Chromebox to it’s default factory settings. See the instructions located at Google’s help page, under the section “Wipe a Chromebox”.

    1. At the login screen press Control+Alt+K on your keyboard
    2. An Automatic Kiosk Mode windows will appear, select Enable
    3. Log in to your Chrome OS device
    4. Open Chrome and navigate to chrome://extensions
    5. Select the Developer mode checkbox
    6. Select Manage kiosk applications
    7. In Add kiosk application field, enter the Application ID mfpgpdablffhbfofnhlpgmokokbahooi
    8. Click Add
    9. Highlight the Kiosk App and select auto launch
    10. Select Done and restart
    11. After restart, select Confirm to accept the Auto-launch permission

    I am glad it helped. Those were once official instructions from Rise Vision for Chromeboxes.

    Also, how do you go back to the OS? ctrl+alt+S or Q does not work, tried shift as well.

     

    Thanks

    Is this thread actually about Chromebit? Or Chromebox? Are you saying you can get RV on Chromebit?

    Rob: I don't think it's funny at all I should ask, given I have been pretty vocal about RV on ChromeOS.Just review my thoughts on https://help.risevision.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115019364863-Chrome-Application-Player-On-Hold-Due-To-Issues, among others. The history of RV on ChromeOS, btw, has been nearly or completely erased except for in these user forums. No one perusing the RV website would ever guess that, at one time, Chromebox players were recommended, before being abruptly pushed out at the first report of any trouble with a software update. The Chromebox players I installed on RV's recommendation are still up and running and, some minor occasional issues that seem to always resolve themselves aside, have experienced no problem so grave as to make me want to switch them out for anything else.

    Anyway, I'm happy that RV has reconsidered their previous decision and may resume work on ChromeOS. I still believe that an inexpensive, easy-to-manage, but relatively powerful hardware player is much preferable in the long run for the majority of people than a player that, while much less expensive, is much more performance-challenged, finicky, and requires much constant tweaking to make it work (ahem, Pi).

    David,

    I'm glad to hear those machines are still running, I look forward to hearing they are just as reliable on the new Chrome Player. 

    Thanks!

    Re: David's question, 

     

    What are the instructions for a Chromebit? I have an ASUS Chromebit that doesn't seem to be compatible with the software. If I were to wipe it and put it in kiosk mode, would that work?

     

    Thanks, 

    Henry

  • I downloaded the application on Chromebit with the instructions Darius gave. And the presentation was working fine until yesterday the YouTube videos that I had stopped starting automatically.  The same code in RPi launches the YouTube videos to start automatically but in Chromebit they no longer do. Please let me know if this is something that Rise Vision is working to fix. Thank you.

    Quickmed,

    This is due to this issue: https://help.risevision.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009354103-Videos-not-autoplaying-in-Preview-and-on-Unmanaged-Chrome-OS-devices

    If you want to follow that announcement, we will let you know when this is corrected. However, I must be very clear, this may not fix the issue on the unsupported ChromeOS Player. if it does not, I would strongly suggest going with a Windows or Linux Player.

    Thanks!

    Hi there, some two or three weeks ago, while working on embedded YT videos with CC (HTML Widget), I noticed that single videos would not autostart. However, embedded playlists would still play properly (I prefer embedding YT videos this way... some benefits). I was working with Windows player at that time and right now I do not have any Chrome players to test this. So, it is up to you to give it a shot or not.

    Found this on another post and I am sharing it here. I can confirm it works with the unsupported version of Rise player at least for me. We use ASUS Chromebox and ASUS Chromebit.

    Log into the chrome OS by pushing Ctrl+Alt+S on boot
    Open a chrome window and type: chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy
    Change 'Default' to 'No User Gesture is Required'
    Reboot ChromeOS device
