  • Name: name of your Scrolling Website App, this is only for use in File/Asset list, it will not be displayed on your screen.
  • URL: the URL link to the page you want to display.
  • Request Desktop Site: if you are using Amazon Fire Stick or Android as your player, if this box is checked, the app will try to request desktop version of the web page.
  •  Scroll Type: You can select
        • Down & Up: the app will scroll the web page down, and then scroll up.
        • Scroll to: the app will jump to a certain location on the web page
  • Speed: how fast you want to scroll, you can also customize the speed.
  • Page Height: enter the number in Pixel. This is needed because the app does not know how long a web page is, also some web page like social media has infinite scrolling.
