Share a Live HTML Report

This tutorial is specific to our newest product, Hudl Sportscode. If you’re on Sportscode v11, use these resources instead or upgrade today.

Tip:

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 MAMPDownload and install the free ver­sion here.

    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.
