Ability to define whether default assets are pre-loaded or not

Right now it seems that the Tulip player does not pre-load its default variable assignments if they contain assets like images or documents.

As a result, when the player is started for the first time, the operator will first see a gray blank image before the proper content is displayed.

It would be great if one could specify that an asset should be pre-loaded into cache before an app is displayed to an operator to prevent this flickering. :slight_smile:

In the example it is barely noticeable but I have seen much worse loading behavior quite frequently.

  1. Tulip player initial load → no cache
  2. Retrigger → cached
  3. App restart → cached

Hi @sebme -

Thanks for noting this! I will talk with the product team about this and hopefully we can get back to you with more details soon!
