Can I Display HTML Pages without BrightAuthor or BrightScript?

Yes. If your player is using firmware version 4.7.106 or later, you can display a full-screen HTML page without having to publish with BrightAuthor or write a custom script. Simply place the index.html file (along with related content files and folders) in the root folder of the SD card.

The player will use a default system font to display text, but you can use custom fonts by adding files to the SD card as well. Custom font support includes True Type Font files (.ttf) and Web Open Font files (.woff/.woff2).

Note that, without BrightAuthor or BrightScript, you cannot create multi-zone HTML presentations. However, there is a limited set of interactivity available for HTML pages via JavaScript BrightScript objects.

Because there is no presentation sync spec, publishing options are limited to Standalone (i.e. writing to the card and physically inserting it into the player). It is also possible to publish HTML files to the player remotely using the SD tab of the player’s Diagnostic Web Server.

    Nick if data in a HTML page will be refreshed depends on how the HTML 5 is made (if the page requests the new data). You can always do a "manual" refresh - on the HTML content in BA specify a timeout after which it will reload the entire HTML page.

    If the updating is server-initiated (a page could be made that the server re-sends the updated content). In this case it would be better to reference the page than to put it on the card itself (in the properties of the HTML5 zone specify an url to the page on the web instead of the html files on your computer.
