  1. 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.

      We will be providing 2 distinct features for accommodating this need:

      First, we will allow paid accounts to use an extra (free) test Monitor. This test monitor will regularly show an overlay of the Yodeck logo on top of content, so it will not be suitable to be used as public display. It will be used solely for testing out changes to Monitors before pushing.

      Then, we will be developing a full-fledge Web Player. This Web Player will have a unique URL which you will be able to open up on any browser. From that point on, you will be able to manage content displayed as with any other Pi-based Player. We will then use this Player to also display a one-time preview of the Show.

      Hope this works for all of you guys. Please be kind enough to leave a comment if you think otherwise.

    • 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.

      • Provide transition effects

        Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

          We will be implementing OpenGL-based image playback, and we will be implementing transition options.

          Minimum transition that will be provided is cross-fading and fade-through-black or white. Hopefully, most of the transitions here will work: http://transitions.glsl.io/ if they do, it will be really awesome.

          This feature has been delayed. We first need to provide our new rendering engine that will allow to utilize the GPU of the Player. The new rendering engine release is now on beta. After we have the new rendering engine tested and working well, and after we have released it on our standard site, then we will start working on the transitions. Generally, the whole transitions mechanisms will need change, in order to provide better Playlist management internally during Playback. So, transition effects might take a while to arrive.

          In the mean time, we will be providing a HTML-based Widget, providing slide and cross-fade transitions with…

        • Create a widget store

          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.

            Yes, we do plan to have a Widget marketplace. :-) It is great that you are interested in this, hope we have more Partners and people coming in and voting for this one!

              As promised, we have started development of this feature and it will be released on V9, scheduled for release by January 5th.

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

              This feature will likely be part of our new subscription plans, which will be announced with the V9 announcement and enforced by end of Q1-2018.

            • 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…

                After public demand, we are moving this forward! Initially, this was planned for Nov 24th release. Beta testing showed reliability issues with playback, so we decided to push back this feature to the next release (scheduled for Jan 5th) in order to undergo more testing and make sure everything works great.

                Two new fields will be added in all Media to set an expiration date/time as well as a “valid-after” date/time. All places where Media is shown (listings, Playlists, Show Media selection, etc) will be modified so that expired Media can be easily identified.

                  We will provide:

                  1) audio files you upload, as a new Media type
                  2) audio tracks from Youtube videos, as a new Media type
                  3) audio management for Shows – you will be able to add a Playlist that will only provide audio

                  Additionally, we will provide audio device management, so you will be able to Mute the Player, change the output volume, and more.

                    Public Google calendar URLs work with the Yodeck Web Pages.

                    Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) is a whole different thing. This would require a Widget and some serious development. We are not declining the feature, to see how much supporters it will have, but overall, it is quite a workload. We will consider it though.

                  • Widget ideas

                    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.

                        This long-awaited feature is now on track! We are planning to release this on our Feb 16th release.

                        The working name for this feature is “Workspaces”. You will be 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 will be able to structure your access control in any way you want and make sure Users have the access they only need.

                        This feature will be part of our new “Enterprise” Plan that will include other security related features as well.

                      • Schedule every 'x' minutes

                        Can you add the options to schedule a show every: hour, quarter and/or every ... minutes.

                        We like to show a standard show which will be overruled by a dedicated show every ´x´ minutes. Now we can't use the scheduler for that.

                        Thanks in advance.

                              We already have started working on an improved way to communicate with the devices. Within a 2 releases (3 months), we will provide Action buttons in each Monitor entry to remotely reboot/shutdown the Player, as well as other actions, like turn the TV on/off, delete all Media cache, remotely re-image the Player with the latest SD card image, and more.

                              The first action will a Reboot. We are targeting for the upcoming release in 5 weeks from now, hope we can make it till then.

                                We expect playback reports to be available early Jan 2017. You will be able to get a report for individual Media level.

                                • Container clip for random media

                                  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.
                                  Example:

                                  - Logo
                                  - General info
                                  - Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")

                                    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.

                                    Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
                                    Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.

                                      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.

                                    • 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.

                                          Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.

                                            We have created a script for the Scripting Engine that uses Google Calendar and removes excessive stuff, headers, footers, etc. We have been using it internally for our meeting room for 3-4 months now and it seems to work fine. We will be sharing that next week on a post.

                                            Concerning an inherent calendar Widget, it would be difficult to provide it within Yodeck. But I guess that if we supported an ICS calendar, you could use Google calendar and that Widget could pull info from that. I think that would be sufficient, right?
