Hello, FWIers. After a brief hiatus, a role change and about 1,000 pages of documentation, I’m back and rebooting this blog series.

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be looking at some of the new documentation available inside the FWI Community. If you’re not familiar, take a moment to visit the Community here. This is for FWI Customers only and contains tons of great information, download links for software updates, user forums and more.

Since the name of this post is Reboot, today we’re going to look at a Player Command for rebooting your Content Player machine. Player Commands, if you are not familiar, are incredibly helpful for performing certain tasks on the machine without the need to physically touch the device. We have a full list of Player Commands in the Community.

The Reboot Player Command, like all Player Commands, can be sent from Content Manager Desktop, executed as a script, or sent from one player to another. As a script, it looks like this:


Pretty simple. No additional parameters or arguments needed, just tell the machine to reboot. As of the time of this post, this command is supported on Content Player for Windows, Android and Mac.

Important Note: The command does require that the Content Player software be running. It is the Content Player software that executes commands, so if CP is closed, the command will not reboot the machine.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for more. #DoYouFWI?
