Looking for Digital Display App For Web Pages with Rotation

Wed Aug 02, 2017 3:56 pm

Any list anywhere of what's available on the market?

So far I tried FullPageOS and Screenly, both great programs but the webpage I want to rotate are pretty heavy with videos and the Pi3 is having a hard time loading them up.

I checked a few more but very disapointing

If there's a list out there I would go through it to see which apps can support the pages on the Pi3

Also next thing to do is to overclock the Pi and see what happens

Tried rotating the complete video output instead ? config.txt has an option named display-rotate.
Everything will be rotated.

Rotate as in 1 page is up for x amount of time then second page for x amount of time in a loop

if they are pages you can edit (or can be loaded within a frame) then a quick and dirty way to do it is to use a meta refresh line and have them call the next page you would like and eventually have the last call the first

then you can just fullscreen or kiosk mode chrome.
