Share a Live HTML Report

Haven't created a Hudl Sportscode Report before? Contact your local support team to get started with scripting an output window.

Hudl Sportscode Elite allows you to share a live report window as an HTML page with or without video. You'll be able to view this report on tablet or smartphone via the mobile web browser provided they are connected to the same WiFi network.

If you don't have a WiFi network available, you can create one using a Mac computer by clicking the WiFi icon and choosing Create Network. You can then connect your mobile devices to that network. If necessary, you can use a Ubiquiti Nanostation or other router/access point to extend the signal.

To share your live report as an HTML page, you'll need to create a local web server on your Mac using MAMP. Download and install the free version here.

Configure MAMP

  1. After you've downloaded and installed MAMP, download this file. Move to the desktop, then double click to unzip the Sportscode HTML Export folder.

  2. Open the MAMP software from your Applications folder in Finder.

  3. Within MAMP, select MAMP > Preferences then select the Web Server tab.

  4. Click the folder icon to select the unzipped Sportscode HTML Report folder on the desktop.

  5. Click the Start/Stop tab and check Start servers and Stop servers. Uncheck all other boxes, then click OK.

  6. Quit MAMP.

Configure Sportscode

To share your live report with other devices, the Hudl Sportscode code window in Report mode must be kept open for the duration of the game.

  1. Click Share in the toolbar of your report window.

    If you don't see the Share icon, follow these steps to get it into your toolbar.

  2. Choose one of the three HTML Export folders inside the Sportscode HTML Reports folder. For this example, choose HTML Export 1.

    The provided zip file contains folders for 3 exports. Additional folders can be added as needed.

  3. Choose an Update interval for the report. Leave this at 10 seconds unless advised differently by your local Hudl representative.

  4. If you'd like to export movie instances in your report, check Export movies and then click Start Export.

    Playing back instance movies over WiFi won't always be possible--it'll depend on your signal strength and the amount of data to be transferred.

Start HTML Export

  1. Open MAMP.

  2. Check that the servers are started. They should start upon opening MAMP - if not, click Start Servers.

  3. Click Open WebStart page on the MAMP interface, then select My Web Site from the browser window.

  4. Click HTML Export 1 to view the shared report.

  5. The reports can be viewed on other devices on the network by going to either the IP address or the local address, both found in the upper right corner of the browser window.

Stop HTML Export

  1. Open MAMP, select Stop Servers.

  2. Quit MAMP. Open Hudl Sportscode and click Stop Export in the Share menu.

  3. If you are finished exporting and ready to start a new HTML export, delete all the files within the HTML Export 1 folder.

    To ensure the best experience with HTML Export, delete these files after each session.
