Why should I set up boot Start at boot and Daily restart?

We recommend setting up the boot at launch (or start at boot) and daily restart features for the ScreenCloud player app on your Android TV media player. The auto-start feature will automatically boot the ScreenCloud app in the event that the device crashes or restarts from time-to-time, this is beneficial for ensuring that your digital signage content will always continue to play when intermittent device disturbances occur.

The daily restart feature allows you to select the desired time each day for the ScreenCloud app to automatically restart and reboot. This is recommended as it allows for the app to undergo a fresh restart to help the app perform more optimally and stable. Any device and/or app running consistently for extended periods of time, not secluded to just digital signage, can come across crashes or app issues on occasion. These features can help your Android TV device perform best for digital signage.

  1. Visit the ScreenCloud Player app on your Android TV device, and click it to open the app.
  2. While viewing the app, click on the select button (center circle on the D-pad) on your Android TV remote to open the ScreenCloud app menu.
