Player Setup Instructions
To get started, use the following steps to create at least one Screen Saver Configuration:
Log into Carousel Cloud and navigate to the Configuration menu (if this option is not available, please see your system administrator for access).
From the Configuration menu, select Players, then macOS Screen Savers
Create a Screen Saver configuration using the New button. Here you will enter in a name for the configuration according to how you will use the Screen Saver. If you are going to be using the Screen Savers on all of your lobby computers for example, you could name the configuration Lobby Computers and select the Lobby Channel you already use from the drop down channel menu.
Once you have created your configuration, press save. This will generate a site name and player ID you will use for your Screen Saver.
Next, you will use the following steps to download and install the Screen Saver on your Mac device:
From the macOS Screen Savers Menu, press the download button under Manual Installation
This will download the Carousel Screen Saver installer. You can use the same installer on any compatible Mac, it is not unique to the computer you are using. Simply double click the Carousel.Cloud.Screen.Saver.dmg file to install the screensaver on your computer.
Once the Screen Saver has been installed you will need to set the appropriate Screen Saver settings on your Mac. They can be found in System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver under the Screen Saver tab.
Select the Carousel Cloud Screen Saver and then select the Screen Saver Options. Copy and Paste in the Site Name and Player ID from the Screen Saver Configuration you created earlier and press Done.
Your Carousel Cloud Screen Saver is now installed and configured! Next time the Screen Saver on your Mac is activated, your Carousel Cloud Channel will be displayed.
Here are a few options to try if you ever experience any problems with the Screen Saver:
Make sure the Site Name and Player ID are entered correctly in the Screen Saver Settings.
Watch for any error messages when the Screen Saver is launched.
Make sure you are using the most recent version of the macOS Screen Saver app.
Delete and re-install the macOS Screen Saver for Carousel Cloud.
