Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

Yes, it can be. You will have to create a shortcut for the video file, add it to the kiosk policy and associate the policy with the device. If the video is not present on the target device, it has to be uploaded under Admin-> File Management before the creation of the shortcut.
Please follow the below steps for shortcut creation:

  1. Navigate to Apps-> File Shortcuts and click on Create File Shortcut.
  2. Choose Video as the type of shortcut. Enter the display name. You will have the option to either choose the file from the Hexnode repository or device storage.
  3. Upload the image to be displayed as the video shortcut icon.
  4. Choose the app to play the video. The Hexnode Media Player will be listed by default.
  5. Click Create.

The video shortcut is now created. Please navigate to Policies-> Kiosk Lockdown-> Android Kiosk Lockdown-> Single App/Multi App, click on the ‘+’ icon and add the created shortcut. Associate targets and save the policy. The device will now get locked down to kiosk mode with the video in it.

For more info, check out our help doc on adding video shortcuts to Android devices in kiosk mode.
