Details
Symptom
Symptoms may include DisplayStudio continuing to reboot, a playlist not playing after being sent or a file being skipped in a playlist.

Cause
​The cause of the issue may be that a file loaded into DisplayStudio has a special character in it. DisplayStudio does not support characters such as "&", "%", registered symbols or trademark symbols.

Solution
​The solution is to delete the file with the special character in DisplayStudio. Then resave the file without the symbol and reload it into DisplayStudio. The file will playback properly.
