For the initial setup of your player, you may need a decent display with HDMI, DVI or Displayport connection, as well as an USB keyboard to be able to adjust all settings.

Your FRAMR. Player will boot automatically as soon as the power supply is connected. There are two ways to open the settings of your player:

  • In case you have a USB keyboard at your fingertips, you may connect it to your player. After the player is fully started, hold Shift+Insert on the keyboard to open the configuration screen of your player.

  • If the player is accessible over your local network, you can also access the configuration page on your computer by entering the IP address of your player.

  • You could also start a browser window manually by pressing the keyboard key combination CTRL-N on the player, and enter the URL https://localhost/ by hand.

Enter the username “admin” and the password “admin” into the following login screen. Enter your own password, if you have already changed the password.

Default user: admin
Default password: admin

If no signal is displayed after several minutes, check again if the player is really connected to the power supply and to your screen.

Using the player settings, you can configure your FRAMR. Player. The different options are explained in the following sections:

Settings overview


The system information gives you an overview of various system details of your player, such as the firmware version (OS version) or the remaining available memory, as well as the current system load and temperature.


In network information you will find all available network adapters, the IP address (if available) and all other network-related information, which is used to operate the particular network adapter.

By entering the indicated IP address in your browser, you can access the player settings on your computer.


This is where you can edit the display output preferences of your player to the connected displays and, for example, rotate the visual playback from the player.

Display mode:
Display mode determines the way the HDMI or Displayport output is used by your player. You can choose between the following options:

  • Clone display to all display connections: Both ports of the player show the same content on all displays, the output is “cloned”.
  • Extend display horizontally: A large virtual display area is stretched over all HDMI ports of your player, showing the FRAMR. Signage application in a horizontal axis across multiple monitors placed side by side.
  • Extend display vertically: A large virtual display area is stretched over all HDMI ports of your player, showing the FRAMR. Signage application in vertical axis across multiple monitors placed on top of each other.
  • Separate output for each display connection: An independent FRAMR. Signage application is launched for each HDMI port of your player, these run independently and appear in the FRAMR. Cockpit as separate players.
  • Customized display settings (for experts only): Here you can configure very special display variants in coordination with the FRAMR. Serviceteam. Only recommended for specialists!

Display resolution
In factory state, the resolution for the display output is automatically determined from the EDID table of your connected displays using the highest available resolution. You can also select a custom resolution at this point to adjust the resolution for your use case.

Display rotation
You can use the display rotation to adjust the screen playback of your player to the way your displays are mounted.

  • Normal: The output will not be rotated and will be shown on the display in a horizontal alignment.
  • Right: The playback will be rotated 90 degrees to the right, the display should be mounted in portrait orientation for this type of operation (pivot display).
  • Inverted: The playback is rotated by 180 degrees, the display should be mounted upside down.
  • Left: The playback will be rotated 90 degrees to the left, the display should also be mounted in portrait format (pivot display) for this type of operation.

Lock color space
Some displays require special color settings for the correct distribution of the visual information. This function can be used to permanently set this “color space”.

Touch settings

You can configure a touch input device like touchscreens or touch membranes on your display using the touch settings. To do so, enter the device name of the touch input device in the text field or select one of the devices recognized by the player in the drop-down box below to copy the value to the input field.

You may have to restart the player afterwards in order to ensure proper operation.

You can use placeholders in modules using the {{variable|default}} format to populate dynamic content through the Player API. The value “variable” corresponds to the key of the API call, which is replaced by the value given there. In addition, you can optionally use “default” to define a default value for the placeholder that is used if no value or an empty text (“”) is returned in the Player API for the key that is used.

This is my example text with a dynamic number “{{number|50}}” inside the text.

Calling the Player API at the endpoint with the parameters { “key”: “number”, “value”: “100” } will change the result from “{{number|50}}” to “100”.

POST “https://[IP]/api/variable” { “key”: “number”, “value”: “100” }

This is my example text with a dynamic number “100” inside the text.

In the initial state of the player after startup or by clearing the value via API, the default value “50” is displayed in this example.

POST “https://[IP]/api/variable” { “key”: “number”, “value”: “” }

This is my example text with a dynamic number “50” inside the text.

Of course, you can use multiple placeholders in the module at the same time.


Change playlist

You may change your player playlist externally by using the player API. Just set the key “playlistID” and ID of the desired playlist the via Player-API to change the currently active playlist of a player. You may find the playlist ID by opening a playlist and inspect the URL in the browser bar, e.g.


POST “https://[IP]/api/variable” { “key”: “playlistID”, “value”: “[ID]” }


The target player will then view the specified playlist until either you reset the “playlistID” again via API or reboot your device.


POST “https://[IP]/api/variable” { “key”: “playlistID”, “value”: “” }
