  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…

    • Display a conference schedule.

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

                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.

              • 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.

                • In folder view, order folders by name

                  If Folder View is enabled, the Folder tree has all the folder names unsorted. These need to be sorted to make sense out of it.

                      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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                                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.

                                    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…

                                  • 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.

                                      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.

                                        Please consider providing video wall support. 2x2 would be sufficient for our needs. Thanks!

                                          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…

                                        • 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.
