The Monitor Sync Section

Monitor Sync is a feature that allows the player to periodically synchronize local copies of files with their remote sources over HTTP or FTP. Typically, this feature is used to fetch small data files containing time-sensitive information such as weather or stock quote information.

The Monitor Sync section contains two tabs:

  • URLs: Allows you to configure which files to synchronize. For an in-depth tutorial, see Synchronization Monitor.
  • Core: Controls the global monitor sync behavior.

Note: This section is one of several under Configuration Profile Properties for players. For general information, see Configuration Profiles - Players. For edge server profiles, see Configuration Profiles - Edge Servers.
