Video playback in background was successfully introduced on LG webOS, Samsung Tizen displays and BrightSign. Right now we are working on bringing this capability to Android and Raspberry Pi.
Current signageOS applications do not allow to play video in a background. It’s mainly because of the limitation on the native video players side.
On selected platforms is possible to play video in background via html5 video tag. But it comes with limitations:
- only one video can be played anytime on the screen
- there has to be just one HTML5 video tag at a time
With these limitations in mind you can use video background on these platforms:
- LG webOS 3+
- Tizen 2.4, Tizen 3.0 (SSSP4, SSSP5)
We work hard to bring this feature to all devices.
