      Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.

      We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.

    • Asset Expiration

      I realize this has been submitted before (goo.gl/hblJRN), but after talking through the issue with support I was encouraged to submit it again for a second look.

      It would be extremely helpful to have expiration dates for assets. I understand YoDeck's push is for this to happen through Schedules. As a user I would make use of Schedules to push Shows at certain times of day or cycle in seasonal Shows (such as a Christmas-themed variant). However, with the amount of assets we potentially need to change, Schedules do not seem to be a sustainable solution.

      Our organization has many…

        Yodeck was created to be as simple as possible on the first look. We can add a lot of features, but there is no point in making Yodeck an overly complex software.

        We plan to keep the basic features, as “basic” as possible. Additional features will be provided by Widgets, or different entities. So, in the near future, we will be adding a way for having the same effect.

        For example, there could be a Widgets in which you select a Media and add a expiry date. Or, there could be a Campaigns module, which would allow you to define campaigns that are performed on specific time-frames. Or, a tag-based playlist, where the playlist contains all Media with the specific tags, and the tag can be set to be auto-removed after a date. Or several other ways, that would keep the complexity away from the core components.

        Leaving this idea…

      • Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

        Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

          We do plan to provide a Yodeck Player app for Android. As you may understand, this requires a lot of effort. So, it might take several months until it gets completed. We target the end of 2017 for a first version, but it may well be 2018 until it gets released.

          • Instagram Social Wall for posts tagged to a location or selected hashtags.

            A social wall widget for Instagram would be a great feature. It would be nice to pull from users Instagram photos which are location tagged to the outlet or that use particular hashtags.

            • 4k support

              Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
              Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.

                    This feature request has several implications.

                    First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).

                    Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.

                    So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.

                  • Display a conference schedule.

                    Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?

                      One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.

                      There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

                      Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

                    • GPIO support

                      We have Beamer they not hear on the CEC Command, they have only a Interface for Relais for commands, is there a way to use the gpio's to trigger 2 Relais on schedule start and at the end to off? At this time we have there 2 Raspberrys. One for Yodeck and one for a time based solution but in one device it would be great :D
                      Best wishes

                        • Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

                          Building on : http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13294017-weekday-filter
                          we would like it to be possible to specify a specific number of days for the "Every" field (recurrence).
                          Many restaurants use a menu that cycles either weekly, biweekly, triweekly, etc. (In most cases here we have a tri-weekly menu rotation). What would be great in the scheduler is to be able to schedule a show “Every Monday” or to repeat “Every 3rd Monday” for example. Microsoft Task Scheduler in Windows is an example of how this would work.

                                Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.

                                In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?

                                If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.

                              • VESA Case

                                I find it really strange that these Yodeck Playboxes don't come in a VESA mount case.

                                This is for digital signage and 99% of customer's will want to mount their Pi onto the back of their display.

                                I'm having to find other ways of mounting it onto the TV such as taping it on or cable tie.

                                I could even be better off buying a VESA case for £4 and just swapping cases so I can mount it onto the back of the display.

                                      We will provide:

                                      1) audio files you upload, as a new Media type
                                      2) audio tracks from Youtube videos, as a new Media type
                                      3) audio management for Shows – you will be able to add a Playlist that will only provide audio

                                      Additionally, we will provide audio device management, so you will be able to Mute the Player, change the output volume, and more.

                                    • Container clip for random media

                                      It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
                                      The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
                                      Example:

                                      - Logo
                                      - General info
                                      - Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
                                      - Product clip
                                      - Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
                                      - ... and so on

                                        We are planning to provide a) sub-playlists b) random playback.

                                        Subplaylists will be used as items in regular Playlists. Both Playlists and SubPlaylists will have the option to be played back randomly. And when you will add SubPlaylists to a Playlist, you will have the option to say “Play 3 items from this SubPlaylist” or “Play 1 hour from this SubPlaylist”.

                                        That’s the design we currently have in mind, I think it is pretty close to final.

                                      • API to connect to your subscription / Account / Management

                                        Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.

                                        Examples:

                                        Get - Get access to your account data & configurations. Connect to the API to get configurations & information of your players.

                                        POST - Send show commands to the API. to change between shows on different players.

                                        Longshot.. But would be nice :p

                                          Our whole backend (server) provides an RESTful HTTP API. This is currently used only by our UI, the User Interface that our users see on their screen.

                                          This API needs to be documented and polished up, but it is (more or less) already usable for special purposes. We will just provide you with a access token.

                                          We are planning to release a fully documented API spec within Q2-2017.

                                            Sub-playlists are indeed required.

                                            We will be probably adding SubPlaylists as a new type of playlist. So, you will have:

                                            - Playlists (accept Media and SubPlaylists as items)
                                            - SubPlaylists (accept only Media as items)

                                            This is only 2-levels deep; no Playlists of SubPlaylists of SubPlaylists, and so on…
