ScreenCloud Microsoft OneDrive Gallery App Guide

Showcase images and videos from your OneDrive account, while being able to customize your background and image transition effects of content.

ScreenCloud Post

Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud ( you can download the alternative OneDrive Gallery guide here.

The ScreenCloud OneDrive Gallery app makes it easy to connect your OneDrive account to your digital screens. Easily share folders of images and videos that update as new content is added.

This gives you the opportunity to create digital media galleries without needing to upload your content individually, and you won’t need to redo galleries as new content becomes available. When you update your OneDrive folder, the new media will automatically be added to your digital screen. This allows you to share any media you’d like within an office, restaurant, store, or reception and ensures your galleries update automatically every five minutes.

With the ScreenCloud OneDrive Gallery app you can:

  • Connect to OneDrive and share folders
  • Choose the timing of your content and whether you want to play in order, or shuffle
  • Customize your background and image transition

Here’s how it works:

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud App Store from the left-hand menu.

Frequently asked questions:

How long will the Microsoft OneDrive Gallery app show for?

The OneDrive Gallery app will show for a predetermined amount of time depending on the content from your chosen folder and how long a duration you’ve set for each piece of content. For example, if there are 10 images in the selected folder, and each image is set to show for 6 seconds, you will have a one-minute feed.

This can be edited by going to the app settings and changing the time duration.

Can I select multiple folders to display content?

With each instance of the app, you can only choose one folder containing a maximum of 200 images, however, you can add as many OneDrive apps as you like. We recommend combining media into one folder or adding as many instances of the app as you’d like to show different folders.

Can I select a shared OneDrive folder that is owned by another Microsoft account user?

No, this is a current limitation of the app, and you can only display folders that you have created.

I am not able to log into the app with my email, what can I do?

If you are experiencing issues logging into the app, please clear your browser cache or try to log in with incognito mode. This issue is experienced if you have have existing Microsoft login sessions in your browser. If you still are not able to log in, please contact our ScreenCloud support.

How often does Microsoft OneDrive Gallery app look for new content?

OneDrive Gallery app looks for new content every five minutes.

What file types does the app support?

For images, the app mostly supports jpeg, png, and most common video formats. The app runs by supporting file types that your ScreenCloud device/browser supports. For example, if you're using a Chromebit device that runs on ChromeOS, it would depend on what files Chrome supports for playback on their browser in which .tiff files would not be supported but a .jpeg would display on the screen. Please note that currently, no modern browsers support file formats in HEIC or HEIF (High-Efficiency Image File) or adopted by iOS 11 and later iOS operating systems. For example, this means photos captured using the latest iPhone models. You can reformat or export the images to .jpeg format for support in the OneDrive Gallery app.
