  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • audio as an asset

          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.

          • Widget ideas

            Social Media Wall widgets for all the main social media sites will be key...even better, a social media feed aggregator!! I'd like a google calendar widget...a free form static box text widget would be great as well.

            • 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.

                • Custom background for Schedule.

                  When it changes from one show to another we go to black screen, it would be nice that the user can setup its own background instead of Black, could be colors or images.

                  • Dynamic playlists and media tags

                    Dynamic Playlists and Media Tags. (1) Ability to add "tags" to media. (2) Ability to define a playlist as: All Media with the tags: (LIVE) and ((Building-Main) or (Building-All)).

                    That way just adding a tag on media would push new content out to monitors. Likewise, removing the LIVE tag (in this example) would remove media from playlist.

                    • Sound Check.

                      Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.

                        Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:

                        1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
                        2) normalize volume for all Media

                        Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.

                          We are indeed planning to provide this feature. But it won’t be available soon in its FULL implementation, since it requires a lot of testing and development.

                          We tested a new device that works as an HDMI-to-LAN converter (actually, it converts the HDMI signal to an RTP H.264 streaming video). Costs about $36, here is a link on eBay:

                          http://www.ebay.com/itm/191750919298

                          We tested it and, guess what?? IT WORKS! This will allow us to quickly deliver a well-balanced solution. You will be able to use X+1 Players for supporting X number of screens (in any orientation or relative position) . The output of the “master” Player will be connected to the above HDMI-to-RTP device, and all other Player will reproduce their respective part of the output. Then, you would create a Show as normal for the “master” Player and it would be played in sync across…

                            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…

                          • Show Preview

                            Show preview capability would be an amazing help. Right now there's no way to see a show without pushing it to a real monitor.

                              We will be providing 2 distinct features for accommodating this need:

                              First, we will allow paid accounts to use an extra (free) test Monitor. This test monitor will regularly show an overlay of the Yodeck logo on top of content, so it will not be suitable to be used as public display. It will be used solely for testing out changes to Monitors before pushing.

                              Then, we will be developing a full-fledge Web Player. This Web Player will have a unique URL which you will be able to open up on any browser. From that point on, you will be able to manage content displayed as with any other Pi-based Player. We will then use this Player to also display a one-time preview of the Show.

                              Hope this works for all of you guys. Please be kind enough to leave a comment if you think otherwise.

                            • Default Slide Time Option

                              Hey there,
                              I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!

                                  Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.

                                • Weather Widget

                                  I suggest a simple weather widget that could be used on our displays. Nothing fancy - just the current weather and perhaps the next 5 days?

                                    We will be releasing a Weather widget. First, we will release a RSS ticker, then a Richedit textbox, and finally, a Weather Widget.

                                    In the mean time, we will be providing a (local only) weather Widget based on the web widget provided by Accuweather.com. We have this working on beta right now.

                                    The current beta is expected to be released on our production site in mid-January.

                                    Overall, we are planning to provide a better Weather Widget, that will perform better, work offline, show forecasts, etc, so we will not be closing this idea yet.

                                    Put the video layers or live tv layer under images or other video layers, ie: to make banners while a live stream is in full screen

                                      We have released our new rendering engine that allows you to overlaying stuff on top of videos on beta!

                                      Keep in mind that support for two simultaneous videos is something totally different. There is another idea for this.

                                      The current beta is expected to be released on our production site in mid-January.

                                      Now that multi-user and monitor groups exists, add granularity to assign specific monitor groups to specific users

                                        Adding such detailed level of control for Devices (but also for Media, Playlist, Shows, Schedules, etc) is in our long-term plans. We will eventually support it, at least for devices.

                                        Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.

                                          We need the ability to auto-login to web pages via Yodeck. Can you please develop a scripting engine that would have the ability to supply login credentials to various web pages?
