There are two ways to register media players to use with Carousel Cloud. This article will outline both methods.
This method is recommended if you are deploying 10 or more media players at once, need to set the channel for different groups of media players, and if you can not easily see the screen of each one of your players. For example, from the comfort of your workspace!
Once your players are all physically installed, configured to your Carousel Cloud Account, and displaying the registration screen. They can all be registered at once or in large batches in the Carousel user interface.
Simply log into Carousel and click on your user name in the upper right, select Configure, then Players.
This will bring you to the player dashboard which shows you an overview of your player stats, licensing info, and indicate if you have any unregistered players. Clicking on either the Unregistered Players icon, or Registration from the options on the left will then bring you to the Player Registration section.
Here you will see the details of your unregistered players including their hostname, IP address, Registration Code, and Player Type. Select the players you wish to register using either the Select All box or individually, and select Register Players.
Now, simply select the channel you would like to assign to this batch of players, and click Register.
Your players are now registered, licensed, and can be accessed from your Media Player Management screen!
This method is best if you are registering players one at a time and can easily view the screen. For example, as you are physically installing them in your facility.
Once the player has been configured to your Carousel Cloud account, a registration screen will display on your screen. You can either scan the QR code using your mobile device, or navigate to the activation URL displayed on the screen to register your player.
You will need to log in to your Carousel Cloud Account with the appropriate access rights in order to successfully register your players. Once registered, the players will display the initial channel which is set using the drop-down menu in the settings section of your media player configuration.
