  1. 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 full-fledged Weather widget soon.

      In the mean time, you can now find a (local only) weather Widget based on the web widget provided by Accuweather.com. This is available on the production site right now.

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

    • 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.

      • Allow starting a show based on an event

        Would like to have a display set up in a waiting room playing a standard general show. But, when a new client arrives would like to "push a button" and have a more detailed show played. It could simply be a predefined named show and GPIO pin to initiate it. Schedule could be set to "Manual".

          We are looking into how we could support event-driven Show changes within the current user interface. We want to keep things simple, so this will not be easy. Most probably, we will expand the new entry form in the Schedules section to provide event checks (besides time frames).

          For sure, we will work on event-triggered Show changes after a) we minimize the time required to change Shows, and b) we improve the user interface in the Schedules section to make it more intuitive. These two items are required to make sure that this new feature improves Yodeck and does not degrade overall user experience.

        • Screenshot also in monitor listview

          idea: if you have multiple monitors, it would be great to see the last screenshot in the Monitorslist

          • Add multi-thumbnail view for showing thumbnails from all screens

            An overall dashboard showing all thumbnails from all devices would be great. It would provide a quick view if devices show what they are supposed to show.

            • Content Refresh

              Am new with Yodeck but I would like to see either faster loading of new/changed content over typical client wifi speeds OR some way to blank the screen while new imagery is loaded. My experience so far (limited I admit) leads me to think my shows are amateurish when I have to look at periods where things are sequentially being blacked out and sequentially replaced.Makes me think of the old days when things like this were really slow. Surely there is a better way in 2018.

                I guess you are talking about transition from one show to another. This will be significantly improve really soon. We are working on an improved version of the playback engine that will allow much faster transitions.

                Stay tuned to see it get released!

              • Live Chat Support

                It would be great and very helpful if Yodeck able to provide live chat support.

                  In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

                  • Playlist: import only the files that are not yet present, to avoid duplications.

                    You can select all the files in a folder and import. But when you add a lot of files to a folder and you want to add only those in the playlist it becomes laborious to look for them one by one.

                      We have released a new feature called Tag Playlists. You assign Media with Tags and then you can create dynamic Playlists using combinations of Media Tags. Then, when you upload a Media, you also add the required Tags, so that they get pulled into the Tag Playlists.

                      That might work in your case.

                      In the long run, we are also planning to provide Folder-based Playlists, so that all Media in the specific Folders are automatically included in a Playlist.

                    • A debug mode would be really useful

                      I think it could be useful to be able to debug memory / CPU usage of the various widgets on-screen at a given time. Whether this was real-time on-screen, or periodically logged to file, I think it'd be very helpful in tracking down opportunities for performance optimisation.

                      • Caching Web Pages on the Player

                        Support caching on Web Pages - for pages that are relatively static it would be useful to cache them in the player instead of repeatedly going out to the internet for slowly changing content. I use the webpage feature to pull in a local weather feed - the page hoster noticed that I'm polling 500+ times/day - I'd really like to only look for an updated page every 30 minutes or so.

                          This feature is already in our roadmap. It is closely related to the “Refresh” feature for Web Pages.

                          We are planning to provide an option that will enable you not to “cache” the Web Page, but instead take a “screenshot” of the page, store it and show it for the duration specified by the user, and then refresh it.

                          This will be provided soon, towards mid-2019.

                          Example 1: I would use it for a "Welcome" list of today's (or morning/afternoon) visitors.
                          Example 2: Also for a list of upcoming exhibitions.
                          Using google as a source of times events allows anyone with access to that the ability to make Yodeck entries without getting into your quite…

                              Mark changes to be pushed when done rendering. It sometimes takes hours for changes to make it through the queue and be ready to push. I'd like an option to have changes automatically push when ready.

                                  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.

                                          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 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.

                                            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.
