  1. 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.

    • 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.

        This feature has been the No.1 request for a long time. There technical reason that this has not been implemented yet, but we are working towards the right direction. Let me explain.

        First, we will provide a quick preview button right inside the Show editor. This button will allow you to push the current show to your test player(s) so that you can check how everything looks a) without saving the Show and b) without pushing to all affected Players. It should make it much easier to preview things fast. But, still, you need a Player to use for this. *We will add this to our Oct 26th release! Stay tuned!*

        Now, concerning the web-based preview, we are working on a Web-powered Yodeck Player. This Player will be the basis for building a preview through the browser. This is quite hard to implement. Really hard. We are working towards…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Undo all changes since "Submit to Players?" was last clicked

            Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.

            Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."

              While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.

              Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.

                Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) has been coming up in requests. This requires a new Widget and some serious development.

                We are growing the team, and new team members coming on board will start working on new Widgets, with focus on the main social widgets and this calendar widget. These two are the most requested features so far.

                Stay tuned!

              • yodeck.com site status report - for known acute issues with the site

                Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.

                This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.

                  This would be indeed a great addition. Currently, we have several different subsystems, so it would be good to have an overview is something is wrong or not. We will definitely need to add service status reporting, as well as maintenance/updates schedule.

                • Length of Video Media

                  Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.

                    Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

                    Our encoding backend has been modified to provide all of this information to the Yodeck Portal. So, this will be provided soon.

                  • 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

                          This is due to a restriction impose by the Raspberry Pi hardware. We plan to allow soon using at least two videos. We are also conducting tests with Raspberry Pi 3 to establish the best possible solution.

                          We are working towards a solution that might allow 2 videos running concurrently, provided that the bitrates and resolutions are within range.

                            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.
