4 - Run YouTube links.
Unable to play Youtube videos on software because of YouTube policy.
5 - Is it possible to place the image of a camera/webcam in Holyrics?
See camera settings for access link to paste in Holyrics VLC player.
For example: http://192.168.0.123:8080/video
Insert the link into the "globe" icon on the VLC player near the volume.
After inserting the link, press the play icon to execute in the projection.
Use the shortcut on the "3 dots" of VLC Player, webcam option:
Note: Camera video playback may have a long delay between the received image and projection playback.
A recommended alternative is to use a specific capture software to display the camera image on projection.
A software that will be more efficient and have less delay.
And then you use Holyrics just to display the text over the video.
An example software would be OBS Studio OBS Studio.
6 - Background videos or VLC Player display "black screen" when presented
In the My Videos tab you can click on the "three dots" of a video that is not playing correctly and click on edit properties.
Check the resolution and the bitrate.
Resolutions greater than or equal to 1920x1080 and bitrates above 5000 may overload the PC and cause videos not to play correctly.
You can lower the resolution and bitrate to make a test.
Use about 1280x720 for size and about 4000 for bitrate.
8 - How do I update the program?
When you open the program with internet on your computer a message will appear stating that you have an update available.
Accept that it updates automatically.

To use return monitor as standalone screen the computer must have 3 video outputs, or 2, in case of notebook.
- one output to the user monitor;
- one output to projector;
- one output to stage view (return monitor).
- one output to projector;
- one output to stage view (return monitor).
With all cables plugged in, configure Windows with 3 screens in extended mode.
The program will automatically identify the screens and it is possible to use return monitor.
Note: Some video graphics cards, even with 3 outputs, do not allow all 3 to be used at the same time.
Also notebook with 2 outputs that allows you to use only one at a time.
That is, you need to test the outputs to make sure your PC or notebook supports it.
Alternatives for PCs or Notebooks that don't have enough video outputs:
- Return via wifi if the return screen is a smart tv (see faq 17).
- USB/VGA adapter or USB/HDMI adapter to turn a USB output into video output.
After plugging in the adapter and installing the drivers, you only set the extended mode display in Windows settings.
Note: Check adapter specifications to see if it is compatible with your computer.
Turning a USB output into video output can overload the computer's processor.

Usually synchronization is automatic.
As long as your computer and phone are on the same wifi network.
Any problems communicating, click the solve button and follow the directions.
After reading qrcode, if the PING item fails, in most cases the problem is:
- phone and computer are not on the same network;
- or the network router is blocking communication through a firewall or feature called client isolation. Access your router settings to try to solve the problem.
If an error message appears when you click to open the qrcode window on your computer, the problem is usually the antivirus firewall installed on the computer blocking the software.
Add the program to the antivirus firewall exception list.
In computer software, go to tools menu, change webservice address;
Enter the IP that appears in the Computer IP field.
If continue with error, in the computer program open the help menu, app connection failure, click yes if asked to execute a code;

18 - Is it possible to use panoramic projection (with more than one datashow) with Hoyrics?
Panoramic projection is the projection made by joining two or more projectors to form a "super wide screen".
Many people believe that this type of projection is not possible with Holyrics because the program itself does not provide edge blending capability.
However, the screens do not have to be joined exclusively by projection software, but can be done with any third party software or even with specific hardware.

The presentation window opened by the mobile phone in an auxiliary monitor is independent of the main window.

38 - Appear disabled streaming on phone

39 - Is it possible to install/use the program on an external hard drive or pen drive? (WINDOWS)
Yes, the program is portable.
The program installation by default is in the C:\Holyrics folder.
But once installed, you can copy this folder to anywhere that will work normally.
Just open the Holyrics.exe file that is inside the copied folder.
You can even run from the external device even if the program already installed on your computer.
The program will always use the subfolder data from where it is located.
So if you run the Holyrics.exe file from the Holyrics folder from inside the external device, the files used are the ones inside that folder on the external device, regardless of the data in the Holyrics folder installed on the computer.
Any changes you make to the program opened by the external device will be saved and kept on the external device.
• Device speed may influence program performance, so preferably use an external hard drive in a USB 3.0 port, or a pen drive that has good read and write speed.
• The destination computer may not have the minimum requirements to run the program.
In such cases, preferably use static backgrounds (images or solid colors) as the computer may not support using background videos.
• Preferably run the program by right-clicking on the file Holyrics.exe and the option run as administrator.
This can improve performance and prevent possible miss-permission errors as it is a program running from an external device.
40 - Fonts installed on the computer do not appear in the program.
In some cases it is necessary to install the font by right-clicking, install for all users option.
If not, you can also add the fonts to the program installation folder: C:\Holyrics\Holyrics\jre\lib\fonts
Note: You must restart the program to list the new fonts installed/added.
