are u support Chinese (simplified) in ticker?1 vote
Yes, we do support Chinese (and other) character sets. By default, we have not included Chinese support because the fonts are really big and would use too much storage on the SD card.
If you need Chinese, please contact us and we will set up Chinese fonts in your Players.
Eventually, we do plan to include support for all characters. We will be changing the ticker rendering code to support HTML, so all fonts will be eventually supported with the best possible way.
It would be great to see what media are being used in the playlist. View the upload date and if it is in use, but in the playlist section.2 votes
We plan to add support for other scrolling Widgets, like feeds and more. We also plan to provide access to this through HTML5.
Please post comments with any ideas that you have.
Ability to manually set the resolution on the pi8 votes
Right now, you need to follow this guide to change the resolution on your Player:
We will be adding all useful configuration options like this (e.g. resolution, refresh rate, audio, component-vs-HDMI, disabling on-screen warning icons, etc) as menu items within the Yodeck portal, so that you can easily change these.
The ability to style ticker (expecially rss one) with Css. Also including Google Font through css6 votes
Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.
Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.23 votes
Our software fully supports 4K. The problem is with our hardware platform, the Raspberry Pi.
The Pi does not support 4K resolution out of the box. We have managed to push it to use 4K on Samsung TVs (check this link: http://support.yodeck.com/knowledgebase/articles/891513-changing-the-screen-resolution)
The problem is that 4K content is really heavy. The Pi also does not support 4K video decoding. That is why we are planning to support the Asus Tinker Board. Here is our relevant blog post: https://www.yodeck.com/news/asus-tinker-board-digital-signage/
With the Tinker Board, we might be able to provide an option that will fully support 4K resolution and 4K video decoding. Also, the Tinker board is faster and has 2GB of RAM, which would allow for more complex usage scenarios. We are partnering up with Asus to see how we could work on this to get it delivered.
Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.19 votes
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.
Would be awesome to be able to receive monitor status alerts via Pushover. Would be pretty simple to implement. User would enter their key and then they would receive notifications for all monitors on their account. This would be especially useful for me as a reseller.7 votes
We plan to provide for more complex notifications settings. This will include mobile app notifications (not sure if it is going to be Pushover or our own app), custom email notifications, even SMS notifications.
Moving from One Playlist to another in a schedule is not very clean right now. If the system can either pre-load the next playlist so that it behaves like a new clip, or hold a pre-defined slide so that the screen does not go black between changes.7 votes
We do plan to improve on the time it takes to switch from one Show to the next. Doing a preload on a Show-level, has some implications, but it could work.
In the mean time, you might be served by this feature:
Finally, due to the implementation, providing for smooth Shows transition would require this feature implemented first:
We are going to mark this as Accepted, but it will take some time till you see it released.
Support right-to-left languages (like Arabic and Hebrew) for the RSS ticker8 votes
RTL support will be added soon.
A request to either set a custom error page or leave it black because on larger displays (billboards) the 'Unable to load page' with white background lights up a whole neighbourhood at night.1 vote
Makes perfect sense, we already had it in our backlog internally. Probably, you will be able to set an uploaded image or a Widget as the “Error Page”.
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.20 votes
Onscreen keyboard widget to interact with items on you display1 vote
Yodeck has limited support for interactivity. Right now, you can build and upload HTML5 apps as Widgets, but they must not be placed as overlays in order for them to be interactive. Same goes for Web Pages.
An on-screen keyboard would be a nice addition. Given that this would require a touch screen, we would also have to implement an easy way to setup and calibrate touchscreens (can be done).
We are marking this feature as Accepted and we will see down the road how things progress.
show screen number when playing items in playlist, now showing n of x , and possibly a timer couting down to next item.2 votes
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.
Would like to see the Add Images buttons duplicated at the top of the image list as well as the bottom. If I know its a new image, I shouldnt have to scroll all the way to the end to add another1 vote
Your feedback is valid. I do not know if the proposed layout is the best possible. We will have to see when we make some changes to the UI (for sure, within the next 2 months)
Option to set an interval to refresh a Web Page.2 votes
Right now, you can refresh a web page by adding it multiple time in a Playlist. This way, the Web Page will get refreshed.
Another way to do this now is through the Web Scripting engine.
Both of these ways are no so practical, and definitely not obvious. So, we will be adding this option soon.
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 wishes5 votes
If you want to use this for turning the beamer on/ and off, then you can create a custom power script. Whenever the “Turned Off” special Show is used, you would set the GPIO pin accordingly. Here are the details: https://www.yodeck.com/docs/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=327908
Overall, we plan to provide access to GPIO pins through Custom Widgets, so we are keeping this idea as accepted,
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.32 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
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.
- General info
- Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
- Product clip
- Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
- ... and so on19 votes
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.
Drag and drop content upload. Better then trawling through files and folders.6 votes
We already had this feature, but it did not work correctly in some browsers.
We will be implementing it in the near future.
