Xibo Players receive their instructions for what to play from the CMS, they download everything they need and then run through the instructions rendering output to the screen. A lot can be achieved using this standard functionality, particularly when combined with the more advanced embedded/HTML package Widgets. However, in this mode of operation screens are limited when it comes to interacting with their environment.
Starting in Xibo

- Touch: physical interaction with the screen, usually via a touch screen or mouse
Web hooks: software interaction with the screen via
httprequest, usually from another device or service
