Player activation is the process used to associate Player with an Intuiface account and - if available - a paid license. The activation mechanism has been designed to account for very large scale and highly variable deployments.
Choose any of the multiple Player activation options available for use.
- When a license expires it is released automatically. Player will then attempt to request a new license the next time it is run.
- If no paid license is available, Player will run as Player Free and will have the associated limitations.
If permitting Intuiface to automatically assign a license, such as when logging into Player, the oldest available license (based on the original purchase date) with the longest subscription duration will be selected.
- On the iPad and on Android tablets, uninstalling/reinstalling Player as well as logging out and then back in will consume a new license each time it is performed. Please see our article about releasing the license from a device to ensure licenses are returned to the license server for use on other devices.
- For legacy Player for Tablets license holders: When a license pack expires, all licenses in this pack are released automatically. iPads and Android tablets with released licenses will attempt to request a new license the next time Player is run.
