    • int
    • float
    • boolean

      • xpath
    • note: texte and json variables cannot be used in playfolder
    • note: in case a URI contains a variable which can not be resolved in preview (because the variable does not exist anymore, or contains non value), the variable color inside the URI becomes orange
  • Change: URI can now be only made of
    • resource domain repository directory
    • resource directories
    • resource variables
      • localisé (file extension selection is proposed when URI is finishing with localized variable)
      • device info (file extension selection is proposed when URI is finishing with device info variable)
      • xpath (file extension selection is proposed when URI is finishing with xpath variable)
      • nom de fichier (file extension selection is not proposed because the variable is embedding already an extension)

        • when another variable nom de fichier is used in URI pathfile name, it replaces the previous one
    • note: texte and json variables can not be used in URI
  • Change: manual adding of dependencies in linked file are not required anymore when creating playfolder with variable (or URI with variable) except when using xpath.
    • note for legacy playfolder/URI: due to variable using, some medias manually inserted in linked media tab should remain. These ones will not follow properly their automatic file renaming (or directory renaming). Consequently, they could cause publication or downloading error. To solve the issue review all the URI and playfolder and delete all the linked media related to the variable resolution (except when using xpath variable)
    • when xpath variable is used, a reminder message is displayed showing that the a medias (target media with variable xpath resolved) need to be inserted in linked media
    • when device info variable is used, the target filename can be resolved automatically only when the device info variable values has been imported from the player in PlugnCast (Library/Variable view). Otherwise the target file must be inserted in linked medias of the URI or playfolder
