  1. custom error page on web page media

    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.

    We now support USB 3G/4G/LTE USB dongles out of the box. We added a whole new tab in the “Monitor” details that allows you to configure everything that has to do with mobile broadband dongles.

    If you face any difficulties getting it to work with your dongle, please connect your Player using a wired ethernet and reach out. We will then troubleshoot remotely.

  3. 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…

    We have released support for audio assets! Here are the details:

    1) you can upload audio files as a new Media type
    2) you can use audio files within regular Playlists – when an audio asset is played back within your Show (added on the Show layout editor) nothing will show up on your screen (just like using the “Empty” special item)
    3) there is an additional field just below the Show editor that allows you to specify a “Background Audio” Playlist — all Media in this Playlist (including video files, audio files, web pages with audio) will not appear on screen, so you will only get the audio track from these. If tyou use this field, then all Media added normally in the Show layout editor will be muted.

    This way, you will be able to split audio and video content effectively! Check out more in our announcement: https://www.yodeck.com/news/software-update-audio-files/

  7. 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.

  8. Add Online Updating

    It would be great if there was a way to update the device software online rather than having to pull the SD card to rewrite it or flash the device with a USB thumb drive.

    You will now have the ability to add Playlist as items in other Playlists.

    Please note that this feature will be part of our new subscription plans, which will be announced shortly and enforced by end of Q1-2018. Until then, you can use this feature for free!

  10. 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.

    This long-awaited feature is now available as “Workspaces” in our Enterprise subscription plan!

    You are able to “move” any item in the Yodeck Portal (Media, Playlists, Monitors, etc) to a Workspace, and then assign Users with specific access to each Workspace. This way, you are able to structure your access control in any way you want and make sure Users have the access they only need.

    Check it out, all Plans (incl. Enterprise) are completely free for 1 Monitor!

  12. Add Support for Video Walls

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

    Video-Wall with Yodeck are now possible! Here are the full instructions on how to set it up with Yodeck:

    https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/Creating+a+Video-Wall+with+Yodeck

    You use X+1 Players for supporting X number of screens (in any orientation or relative position, even asymmetric layouts) . The output of the “master” Player is connected to an HDMI-to-RTP device (LKV373A recommended), and all other Players will reproduce their respective part of the output.

    We will soon add an easier way to setup the Video-Wall that will need much less configuration and fuss.

  13. network video stream realtime playback

    the capability of posting content from network video streams.

    The RSS ticker is now available on our production site! Go ahead and check it out!

    The ticker is super smooth (GPU-powered) and quite flexible. You can add one or more entries, including static texts and RSS feeds.

    You also have a few customization options:

    - scrolling speed (in seconds edge-to-edge)
    - font type
    - font styling, color & transparency
    - background color & transparency

    You can also have more than 1 ticker on the same Show, it works great!

  18. Ability to render more advanced web content.

    We have a number of websites that we want to display. Many of these are unable to be rendered using the Yodeck player but they render fine using a normal browser. Good example below:

    http://map.norsecorp.com/#/

    We now support Chromium as a secondary Web rendering engine! It is faster than our standard web viewer and can optionally provide limited support for Flash.

    Only restriction is that Chromium cannot be rendered on top of video Playlists or other overlays. We plan to change that really soon. We issued a new suggestion for those of you that want to be updated on that: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/19400362-ability-to-overlay-chromium-and-pdf-on-top-of-vide

    Keep in mind that Chromium is much heavier and resource-hungry than standard Web Viewer. You should always try the standard web viewer first, if possible. Having multiple Playlist on screen using Chromium can place a lot of load on your Player and can cause trouble in the long-run.

  19. Ability to add Live TV

    Perhaps could be done thru a HDMI to USB Input Device installed on the Player.

  20. Local or internal web page resolution

    Please can you let Players resolve internal network addresses so that we can display local web pages. At the moment we can only display web facing pages. E.g. local DNS setting
