Upgrade via USB.

If you would prefer to upgrade your Xibo for Tizen player locally using a USB, below are instructions on how to do this.

Prepare your USB.

  • Create a folder at the root directory of your USB device and name it SSSP.
  • Save the Xibo for Tizen player you downloaded earlier inside the SSSP folder and rename it sssp_dl.
  • Next create a configuration file for the player using a text editor, for example Notepad . Please copy the below text into that file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget>
	<ver></ver>
	<size>9999999</size>
	<widgetname>sssp_dl</widgetname>
	<webtype>tizen</webtype>
</widget>
  • You will need to enter the version of the player you wish to install between the <ver> and </ver> brackets to complete the configuration file. For example, if you have downloaded the version 2 R201 player, you will need to enter 2.201 between those brackets.
  • Once the configuration file is complete, save it as a sssp_config.xml and copy it to the SSSP folder.

Install the player.

Now that you have set up USB, press the Home button on your remote control and go to the URL Launcher Settings menu. Choose Install from USB Device to start the upgrade.

You will be prompted to enter the 4 digit pin code for your Samsung device. If you have not set a pin, you will be prompted to enter the default pin set for your device. Please refer to the manual for your device for more information.

You will receive a confirmation message when the player has been successfully upgraded.

Downgrading your Xibo for Tizen Player

Whilst we would always recommend the latest version of the Xibo for Tizen Player, you may find yourself in a situation where you need to revert to a previous release. Below are instructions on how to do that remotely using your CMS and locally using a USB.

Downgrading via CMS.

  • Log into your CMS and go to the Player Versions menu. Upload the wgt for the Xibo for Tizen Player you wish to revert to.
  • Click the button at the end of the player version you wish to revert to and choose Edit from the menu.
  • You will now see the Edit Media window. Make a note of the value in the Code field for later. Now set that code value to a number higher than the code value for the player version you currently have installed. Save to confirm the change.

Now you can proceed to set this player in the settings for those Displays.

Downgrading using CMS Version 2 and later.

  • Go to the Displays page in your CMS.
  • Click the button at the end of the Display you want to downgrade and choose Edit from the menu.
  • Once the Edit Display window opens, click the Profile Settings tab. Set the player in the Player Version field and save to confirm.

The next time your Player connects to your CMS, it will download the wgt and downgrade to the version you have chosen. Once the player has downgraded, you will need to return to the Player Versions menu in your CMS and set the code entry back to its original value.

Downgrading using CMS 1.8.13.

  • Go to the Displays page in your CMS.
  • Click the button at the end of the Display you want to downgrade and choose Edit from the menu.
  • Once the Edit Display window opens, click the Advanced tab. Set the player in the Player Version Override field and save to confirm.

Downgrading via USB.

Please refer to the Upgrading via USB instructions explained earlier, as the steps involved are identical to downgrade the Player.
