Content triggering

Hello,

It will be nice to be able to trigger content on demand via an external physical source like a USB button or via a UDP command form a mobile app. Features like play media on demand or be able to control playback features.

    We are planning to provide trigger support within 2019.

    We are now in the process of restructuring our rendering engine in order to allow several features to be implemented. One of these features is triggers. We are planning to initially support UDP, TCP/HTTP, GPIO events, and then support keyboard/mouse events.

    [Draft Specs follow:] Triggers will be available as a different menu item, in order to manage, set them up, test them, and so on. After setting them up, Users will be able to use them in Playlists, e.g. to skip a Media (or Subplaylist) entry, jump to specific Media (or Subplaylist) entry, and so on.

        Agree with Mike for remote triggering of events. Perfect example... For our bars we currently have a pi setup that is triggered via a web request to duck the audio in the bar, play the Blackhawks horn and then trigger a Wemo switch to turn on a bunch of red goal lights. It would be cool to integrate the signage somehow to make it flash the words GOAL or something like that. Think cheesy animations that you see at bowling alleys when you get a strike. :) Customers love that stuff!

        With the re-structure you may want to look at the ability to add in a widget that will send UDP commands. That way you could trigger outside devices, such as lighting systems or show control elements. This also lets you send feedback to building systems for interactive elements.

        With UDP sport you could then connect into a wide range of building, event and lighting management systems. It would be a big step.
