    Is there some functionality buried within Player Pro that makes the Twitter plugin exclusive?

    Hi Dan, 

    Yes, there is functionality in Rise Player to control whether Twitter shows or not. Twitter will not play on free displays, it will only play on displays with Rise Player Professional.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks

    Any plans for adding some styling options such as 'text/link color?'

    Darius,

    Potentially, we are definitely going to add more features. But, first we want to collect feedback from all of users to see what features have the highest demand.

    To everyone reading this, please let us know in the comments which features are most important to you, it will really help us determine what to add next.

    Thanks!

    Hi, so I am trying to test it on my Professional player and it does not work at all at this point. I was following the steps outlined in Blake's post. Thing is when I click 'Connect an account' nothing happens. I have entered our Twitter account after @. Nothing changes in the preview window. I save it anyway and I see few tweets from RV in the preview, but on an actual Pro display, nothing happens. All I see is an empty placeholder I added to the Twitter Widget. Any ideas where things went wrong? Maybe I am doing something wrong?..

    Darius, 

    You should see a popup come up where you need to enter your Twitter credentials.  

    Here is a video that shows the popup opening, maybe it's being blocked and that's preventing it.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks

    OK, I have figured it out... that pop-up was getting blocked by my browser. I successfully connected my account and I am following @BBC, but no tweets are showing on the screen. I even added a couple of images to the placeholder and I am able to see them, but no tweets... it just stays empty for the assigned 30s duration. I tried restarting my Pro (win10) player and all, but nothing... just empty placeholder is all I see. What else could be done?

    OK, ignore that. After I posted this I did restart the player once again and now it works. Crazy.

    Darius, do you mind if I take a look in your account and the display it's happening to?

    It might have needed a second to pick up the credentials and get your tweets. I'm glad it's working now.

    I am glad too. Good job with that Twitter widget! Cannot wait to see the Google Slides widget.

    That Profile Image scaling is terrible. It is already extremely blurred at 720p. Maybe consider replacing it with the scalable SVG Twitter bird-symbol or something. Just a thought.

    Hi Darius, 

    Thanks for bringing that to our attention, I found a fix that we're going to apply next week. 

    I'll let you know when it's released.

    Hi Darius,

    We just deployed the fix for the profile image resolution.
    Your displays should get the updated version automatically after some time, alternatively you can restart the player to get it right away.

    Let us know if you have any issues.
