After installing the CityAD Pro Player app, there’s a minimal setup process that must be followed before you can configure your advertisement schedule.

If you are using a Raspberry Pi based player, please follow the Raspberry Pi Setup instructions to connect the player to your network before proceeding with this setup.

  • After installing and running the CityAD Pro Player app, you’ll get the main screen. You need to create a new player in your CityAD Pro control panel using the Player ID shown in your new player’s main screen
  • With your favourite web browser open your CityAD Pro control panel using your username/email and your password

If you still don’t have any CityAD Pro account, just register for free at our CityAD Pro website

  • Once in your control panel, use the left side navigation panel to select Players screen and click on New Player button. The Player Configuration form will appear
  • Insert a name for the player, the Player ID shown at the player main screen, and a location. You can also select the Group that the player will be part of if you have already created this group.
  • Before creating the new player, you must assign a license to the player, so click on the License tab and select a valid license to assign to this new player

If you don’t see any available license, then you must first acquire one at CityAD Pro website. All CityAD Pro users have a lifetime license for their first player for free.

  • Click Apply and the new player will be added to your account and appear in your list of players. After this step, the player will show it has been assigned a new license and if it has also been assigned to a group then it will start playing it’s group advertisement schedule
  • At this point your player is ready to show your advertisement schedule. Now you must upload/create the media you will show and configure your video and audio playlists and groups
