Advanced SignalWire Work administrators are able to use tags & flags to customize the theme of the rooms they create.

While using multiple Tags & Flags, separate Flags by using a semicolon ( ; ) and separate Tags by using a comma ( , )

COMMONLY USED TAGS

{cache=true}
File will download to the local server the first time it plays. If the server restarts, the next time it plays it will download again. Possibly could play larger videos better.

{cache=true,abs_cache_control=-1}
When using Drop Box to prevent the delay in loading the video.

{cache=true,refresh=true}
When using Drop Box if you need to force a refresh of the video use this one time, then use the {cache=true,abs_cache_control=-1} Tag above.

{vol=-x}
Auto plays the set volume where x=a number. -10 is background music, -5 is fairly loud. DO NOT set for full volume

{video=false}
No video playing, just audio of the URL.

{reservation_id=role}
Use when playing a URL that you want to show up in a particular layout role (replace "role" with the name of the role the layout wants, ex. left/right/screen/etc)
