    In the meantime where do I get the old RV player for Chrome? I needed to reset one of my Chromeboxes and now I want to put RV player on it again.

    Will there be an "over the wire" upgrade path for all of the players ( I have 8) still running the old RV player for chrome?

    Hi Dave, our plan as of now is to release the new Rise Player for Chrome OS as an update to the legacy version.  Thanks!

    So the community chromium Rise Player was stable for over a year and just stopped working last week.  Whats up?

    No, it did not. All is good with Chromeboxes here.

    Weird perhaps I have a network issue.  We have had nothing but a good experience with the app on chromeboxes in kiosk mode.  Since last week they seem to reboot and forget their screen ID.

    I am having issues with mine as well.  All our boxes, backgrounds load, but no ad boxes load.

    Andrew, Denise,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm not aware of anything that changed around that time. Are you still having those issues? Maybe a change in the ChromeOS caused this?

    We've not seen any issue on our managed boxes. Looking forward to official ChromeOS support again!

    Abedin,

    I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean to say that the Chrome App Player you have is not showing any content? 

    As mentioned above, this is an unsupported Player, but the first thing I would confirm is that data is set to Display on the device. Typically it will turn to a black screen if there is no content selected to Display.

    Let us know if that helps!

    Scott,

    Any idea when this will be completed and a supported platform again? I'm seeing more and more widgets that we currently run on our chromeboxes google calendar, google sheets, etc become "Licensed" features. Currently those features do still work but without the ability to transition our displays to be licensed I'm worried might make our signage unusable in the near future. Unless you guys are thinking ahead about this exact issue. I'm not about to swap out my chromeboxes for a windows or linux device. I'll move to another platform that already supports Chrome out of the box before I make that investment.

    Please let us know the road-map and timelines.

    Hi Andrew, good question! We have taken this into consideration and there will be no impact on existing Chrome OS Displays until we have released the new Chrome OS Player which is currently scheduled for late July/early August. 

    Thanks!
