I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Custom aspect ratios

    We are planning to use Yodeck on big LED displays which are built with 32x32 modules. It works fine otherwise, but it's not very intuitive if aspect ratio does not match on the Show editor.

    For example, display has 480*96 resolution. This is 16:3.2 .. Yodeck has choices 16:4.5 and 16:3, which means 480x135 or 480x90. When editing with 16:4.5, you have to remember not put anything on the bottom or it won't be visible.

    So, why can't I set the aspect ratio to any custom values?

    • Multiple WiFi Profiles

      It would be great if we could configure multiple wifi profiles on the device and set priority. This way it could connect to a "Primary WiFi" (ideally the customers) but if it can't and a tech is on site, have it connect to their hotspot as a backup and have it preprogrammed (I.e. if you can't connect to customer wifi, connect to a failover wifi profile we can configure through the portal.) Typically we provision the device before it goes out to customer this way in theory it's plug and play if they provide us with the correct wifi info…

          Tag-based Playlists will perform a shuffle before sending out the Playlist.

          In any case, we will be adding support for Random Playback really soon, right after our new playback engine is ready.

        • Increase frequency of monitor status

          More frequent monitor status updates. Currently seems to be very hour, which is too infrequent.

            We now have a new way to communicate with deployed Players. It allows for much more frequent updates.

            For the status info, we are planning to do several improvements:

            - Update the status info as soon as you enter the Monitor details section.
            - Keep full historical data on Monitor status info and show graphs and history (e.g. temperature over time, or graph showing online/offline status)
            - Show the Player status (downloading, playback, updating, etc) almost in real-time

            These will probably this fall. Stay tuned!

          • WIFI - on site manual choosing by client or technician

            Option to manually enter WIFI name and password directly to "Player". This would be really appreciated.

            e.g.: Client connects keyboard and mouse. After pressing some keyboard shortcut(e.g. ALT+W) graphic window will pop up and allow to choose wifi and set password.

                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.

                I suggest a new widget for non-scrolling text for news / RSS Feed, which would display the entire message for 5 - 10 seconds.

                  We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets.

                  Stay tuned!

                • New widgets

                  I would like to see more widgets. A better time widget. A better weather widget. I would like to add a wether cam widget.

                  • 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.

                    • 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-2018.

                        • We would like to be able to synchronise various videos over different monitors.

                          Allows "interaction" between different screens using different videos e.g. 2 people talking to each other from one screen to the next.

                            We are planning to provide support for playback synchronization across Playlists within the same device and across Playlists on different devices. This will be provided as a toggle called “synced playback” on Playlists. It will use the current time to sync playback across all Playlists marked as synced.

                            This will come towards the end of Q2-1028. In the meantime, we have a workaround that has the same effect with some restrictions and a bit weird setup. Reach out if you want to try it out.

                          • Auto-push when changes are released from the queue.

                            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.

                                  Yes, I'm sure but if I get it wrong, it's my problem or I can put it back easily. People mostly press Yes automatically anyway, so what's the point? It actually takes away from really important messages like "You are about to delete ALL data - are you sure?"
                                  Please give us a "Don't show this again".

                                    The “Push to Players?” button will soon be modified to show a pop-up window. In this window, you will be given the option to schedule the push; you choose if you want to push now, or do the push on a specific date/time.

                                    We will probably incorporate your suggestion in this new popup. In the meanwhile, we might also add it in the confirmation pop-up in a following release.

                                    Is there a plan to add social media widgets? I saw someone post an idea for a widget store but if a default twitter widget were available that could be very useful. Mentions on one display and a complete twitter feed on the other would be ideal.

                                      We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with! So, a Twitter Widget is definitely on our list.

                                      Stay tuned!

                                      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…

                                        I've developed a couple of widgets, and more will no doubt follow. It would be great to have somewhere to share them - either free or for a nominal charge, like the appstores for iPhone/android/the other one.
