Adding HTML to MediaHD

1. While in MediaHD, select the tab for HTML.

2. Click the Add Media button. This will open the Add HTML window, with the following fields:

  • Name - Set the name of the HTML in MediaHD

  • Source - Choose either URL or File to indicate the referenced source for the HTML asset.

  • URL/HTML File - Enter the URL or upload a File for your HTML asset.

  • Active/Deactivate - If this box is checked, that means the asset will be available for use in CCHD. If not, it can not be used in playback.

  • Description - A note field to add information for the HTML.

  • Advanced Settings - Add this to any of your CommandCenterHD groups or add a custom tag to better search this asset.

NOTE: Here is some information to help when choosing an HTML Source:

  • URL -  Display a live embedded website using its web address. The URL entered must be public so that the devices can access the content. If a URL is private or password protected, the players will not be able to playback that page’s content.

  • File -  Upload local HTML files directly into CCHD. Files need to be single page HTML documents that contain all necessary scripts to run as a standalone page.

3. Then, click the Save HTML button.
