Hi,

Im thinking of buying the Acer Vero for a project since the device can start automatically when it gets power. Such as turning on the power switch in a store.

But can it also auto play a smaller video in a loop? I guess we can have the video on a USB stick and connect it to the projector.

My question is. When the Vero is powered up, can it auto play a video loop? Without any interaction.

Thank you!

    While the Acer Vero doesn't inherently auto play video loops, there are alternative methods. You can install digital signage software designed to continuously display content, including videos, on a screen. Popular options include ScreenCloud, Posterlounge, and NoviSign. Alternatively, if comfortable with scripting, you can create a script using tools like the Windows Task Scheduler to automatically launch the video loop upon system boot. However, modifying system settings or using third-party software carries potential risks and vulnerabilities, so proceed with caution and do your research beforehand.
