Our Aquarium for Roku, BrightSign and Apple TV

Posted on August 03, 2013 by Scenic Labs | 0 comments

If you own a Roku or Apple TV and have been looking for an Aquarium that you can loop on your devices, here are a few things to know.

1) All of our downloads show up on Apple TV under "music videos."   We classified them as such so that looping is possible.  If you want to reclassify it, you can just right click on the file in iTunes (under music videos) and select "Get Info."  Then simply select the "options" tab and change media kind from "music video" to "movie" or whatever else you want.

2) If using a Roku, the best solution for looping video seems to be the free Nowhereman USB browser.  It's free and you can add it by searching for it on the Roku.com site.  There is an Official USB channel that you can install but we confirmed that it does not support looping.

3) BrightSign users are lucky.  BrightSign devices support looping out of the box. 

We've considered offering a subscription channel, but we believe that ownership of the files is a better value and a better use of bandwidth for both you and us.  However, we are considering offering an app that allows playing of local video files from USB or MiniSD as an actual screensaver that comes on when the device is not in use.  It might be free or we might charge a token sum of about $1-2 to cover development.

That's it! Enjoy your aquarium!
