Playing Videos on Your Frame

PhotoSpring is one of the few photo frames on the market that can play full HD video.

And as of Aug 2017 its the only frame that can do this with a touch screen - enabling you to pause, rewind and go forward while playing a video.

Finding Videos

Videos are marked by a triangle superimposed on top of the video:

Auto Playback vs Standard Playback

There are two modes when playing video:

  • Standard Playback Mode - videos are represented as a photo in the slideshow - except with a white play arrow in the middle of the photo representation. If you tap the white button, the video plays in a loop until you stop it.
  • Auto Playback Mode - videos are represented as a photo in the slideshow - except with a white play arrow in the middle of the photo representation. When a video appears in the slideshow it is played automatically until the end, and then the next item in the slideshow is displayed.

To toggle between Standard Mode and Auto mode, please go to the Slideshow Settings guide and look for the Auto Play Videos toggle button. Set this to ON to enable Auto Playback Mode, and OFF to enable Standard Playback Mode. By default, videos are set to Standard Mode.

Here's what you can do in Standard Playback Mode:

Swipe Left Go to the next item in the slideshow

Reveals controls:

  • Exit video playback
  • Video controls
  • Volume control
