The item is prepared, loaded and ready to be played.


For items that are currently playing, progress indicates visually how much has been played, and how much that remains to be played of the item.

Computer ID

In a DISE Enterprise system, the computer ID is what uniquely identifies this player. The computer ID for a player is set up using the DISE Setup Wizard.

Snapshot image

The snapshot is updated when you click on the screenshot button DISEReplay Snapshotbutton.png, it may take some time to take this snapshot and you may experience a short jerk in the playback of the content. So if Replay is playing live you should not over-use this function. The image that ends up in the snapshot area is the actual rendered image, so this is how it looks on the output device.

The function is intended to use as an aid if you connect to the player from a remote location, and want to know what is displayed on the output screen. This is only possible if the player has dual screens.

Playback controls

The Play and Stop buttons do just that. Starting playback could take some time, because Replay will pre-load a number of scenes before the playback starts. While Replay is pre-loading scenes, a progress bar will be shown on the selected output device.

The Pause button will pause the playback of the currently playing content, this can be of help when revising content or when proof-reading. Video, sound and Flash content, as well as movements, fades, etc.., will also be paused. Click the Play button to start normal playback again.

Previous and Next buttons will jump the playback backwards and forwards between scenes, if you are using multiple channels these functions will go to the next or previous scene in all of the channels. You can also use the arrow keys to achieve the same effect, holding shift will jump to the next or previous video file if there are video objects on the page.
