What content types are supported by Screenly?

The most popular image formats are supported. Please note that if you're using animated GIFs, they need to be embedded in a web-page.

When you prepare images make, sure they are as close as possible to 1920x1080px.

The full list of support images file extensions are:

  • PNG
  • PNM
  • GIF
  • BMP

Screenly Pro supports all major video formats and automatically encodes them for the best possible playback fidelity on your screen.

The full list of supported file extensions are:

  • AVI
  • MKV
  • MOV
  • MP4
  • TS
  • FLV

Screenly is capable of rendering most websites. However, if the website uses too much JavaScript, playback performance and rendering are likely to suffer. To get the best possible results, keep the website as lean as possible and optimize it for 1920x1080. 

When you want a URL to refresh each time it displays, you can make that happen by adding the URL asset two times and adding an image asset, (say a black or white screen or any other image asset), in between the URLs.
