The Video widget provides the ability to present custom videos in your dashboard. You can use it to present a company or customer video, or anything else that helps the user to better visualize your application.
This widget works for both dashboards, Normal and Blueprint.
1. Video Behavior
Video behavior is where you get the video URL from, and it can be three types: static, conditional, and dynamic.
You can use the TagoIO's file system to store the video, and cache the public URL.
It displays the video from a static URL.
Create conditions, where each condition will have a video URL associated with it, and if the variable linked in the Data from field satisfies this condition, this video will be displayed.
This video URL comes from the variable data.
2. 'Data From' Field
The conditional and dynamic behavior has a Data from field to set the device and variable that will be used.
This field is dependent on the type of dashboard you are using; the difference is explained below.
2.1 'Data From' for Normal Dashboards
From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, select one device from your list of devices and the variable that contains the data.
2.2 'Data From' for Blueprint Dashboards
From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, add the Blueprint device and input the name of the variable that contains the information.
When using a Blueprint dashboard, the field Variable will not list variables to be picked because it doesn't know the devices linked to your Blueprint Device.
