Using Categories

Categories in TrilbyTV are used to categorise or tag content and can be used to control what plays back on your screens.

Categories allow you to set a 'theme' to a TrilbyTV Player and have it auto-refresh with new content as it is added to the category. You could also create a category for a specific screen, such as "Reception Screen", and use that to manage what plays on it.

When editing a player's Default playback, or a schedule, click the Categories tab. Initially, All will be selected, which will playback All videos approved and marked to Show on TrilbyTV Player. Click the categories you wish to playback and they will be checked to indicate they have been selected. Turn on Shuffle to enable random playback mode, otherwise, videos are played from newest to oldest. You can also Limit the player to only show the latest x items. This means the content displayed is always the newest added.

When selecting Category-based playback, TrilbyTV selects content based on ANY of your chosen categories. In the above example, selecting Business and Corridors would playback ANY content tagged with the Business category OR the Corridors label, NOT content tagged with Business AND Corridors.

Categories can be added and edited by users with Admin level permissions.
