As Chromeboxes have mostly been discontinued, we're looking for an alternative. Windows or Ubuntu.
I've installed Ubuntu on a Mini PC for testing, and it has some issues*. So despite my past experience with the Windows player, I'd like to test this out as well. The things is, our college only installs and supports Windows 7, and have announced that won't go to Windows 10 until next year (2019).
Is there still a Windows 7 player available for download? And will it be available over this next year to install, until we go to Windows 10 in 2019?
*Ubuntu seems to run fine during the day, but when the TVs come on in the morning, the Ubuntu system is not displaying signage, but showing the Ubuntu desktop. You then have to manually relaunch the RV player. This is fine on the test machine in my office, but I can't go to all the TVs in my district and do this. How can we keep the Ubuntu player active, so when the TVs come on, the signage is already playing, akin to Chrome and it's kiosk mode?
