The easiest solution for looping two or more DMD presentations is to create a nested playlist within DMD. You simply create a master presentation and add a playlist to this presentation. Add the desired presentations to this playlist and then schedule or send the Action to the DMP(s) to play the Master Presentation. The 2 or more child presentations will play and loop until you stop it manually. Summary of Tasks ----------------- * Using DMD create Presentations (2 or more) that you would like to display on the DMP-Display(s). * After the presentations are created, you will need to find out what the URL addresses are for each presentation. Using the "Actions" drop down on the DMM-DMP Manager screen, you select a DMP and send the Presentation to the DMP. Once the DMP displays the presentation, access the DMP-DM Web admin page and copy the URL address in the "Startup URLs-->Browser" field. Repeat this process for each DMD presentation that you want to loop. For example: http://dmm.company.com:8080/xTAS-core/appgen/clad/clad_95_.htm http://dmm.company.com:8080/xTAS-core/appgen/clad/clad_96_.htm and so on... * Another parameter or variable that you will need to find out is the duration of your DMD presentation(s). Some Presentations may be a slideshow of images and some may contain videos. Your will need to play each presentation on the DMP to determine the duration length of each presentation that you will add to the looped playlist. * Create a Master presentation using DMD. In this presentation, you will create add a "Playlist" to the presentation by selecting the Playlist button-drop down. Select "All Media Types" and a Playlist object will be added to the Master presentation. - Double-click on the object to add content - Select "Add URL" button in the Playlist Content window. - Fill in the required fields (URL Title & Link) in the "Add URL" window. Repeat the process for each presentation that you want to add. - Set the Duration for each item in the Playlist. Select the Item in the list and then DOUBLE-CLICK on the "Planned Duration" field and edit the time to desired duration. Repeat process for each item. - Save Master Presentation * Schedule or use the "Actions" drop down on the DMM-DMP Manager screen send the Master Presentation to the DMP(s). The Playlist will play and Loop after the last item in the Master Playlist.

Should this procedure work with locally stored presentations too?
It works fine when I am scheduling it with GO TO URL but it doesn't loop.
So I did a master presentation with only this link, but it doesn't work either.
How can we loop one presentation with locally stored files? The players are 4305G if this is important.
