How to display a website on your digital signage screen

This guide demonstrates how to display a website as part of your playlist.

Please ensure you are running the latest version of the AbleSign player app. Version 2.2.2 or later is required.

It’s very easy so let’s start. Click on WEBSITES in the top menu bar.

We will be displaying the AbleSign website, so enter the URL www.ablesign.tv. We also need to provide a descriptive name.

Click SAVE

In the background AbleSign will generate a thumbnail image of your website. You do not need to wait while it does this.

We can now drag this website to any playlist, in the same way we would an image or video.

So let’s head to our demonstration screen and do just that. Click SCREENS from the top menu bar.

Now simply drag the website in to your playlist and select a display duration. Bear in mind that FireTV devices may not be as quick as desktop computers to display your site so allow additional time.
