Managing Storage on Tizen

Media Files,Layouts and other metadata is downloaded from the CMS onto the Player to allow local playback in the most efficient way and to allow for offline usage. Players will automatically manage the files stored on the local library and automatically remove files that are no longer needed.

Rules for keeping or deleting a file

The CMS informs the Player which files it needs for the next “N” days of playback (where “N” days is defined in the CMS settings). All of the files in this list will be kept in the local library.

Xibo for Tizen will delete all files not in the required files list immediately with no retention period.

You can change the “N” parameter in the CMS Settings page under the Administration section of the main menu.
From the General tab enter a time in seconds in the Send files in advance? field.

The default value is set at 172800 which is 2 days. This setting should be adjusted carefully as it directly affects the size of the Local Player Library and the amount of work the CMS has to do with each collection interval.

We recommend keeping the default setting unless there is a specific reason to change it!
