  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.

      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…

    • 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!

      • 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…

        • 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.

              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!

            • 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.

                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!

              • Instagram Social Wall for posts tagged to a location or selected hashtags.

                A social wall widget for Instagram would be a great feature. It would be nice to pull from users Instagram photos which are location tagged to the outlet or that use particular hashtags.

                  This is expected to be released by the end of October. As soon as we have any feedback, we will update you!

                  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.

                  • Add the ability to place shows in a playlist

                    This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.

                    For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.

                    Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.

                      We are making some changes in our playback engine that might make this feature possible.

                      For sure, we are planning to provide an option to time-sync Playlists. This would allow you to create Playlists of Playlists, and sync the “master” Playlists. Combined with the special playlist item “Hide Playlist”, you could also change the layout.

                      Of course, this is rather complex, but it will be possible.

                      After this is possible, for providing a complete Show Sequence feature, it is more of a matter of strategy concerning simplicity of the platform; adding such a feature would complicate the user experience. But it is something that we will definitely consider.

                    • 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.

                      • Twitter widget?

                        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.

                          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.

                              We are planning to provide support for Zapier. Here is the suggestion in our forum:

                              http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/34154359-integrate-with-zapier

                              Through that, it will be possible to integrate Yodeck with Google Drive, so that any content added to Google Drive is copied to Yodeck and then pushed to your Players.

                              I am tagging this idea as under review, since we might offer a Google Drive (and Dropbox) integration in the future. In any case, we will update all of you with any developments on the Zapier integration.

                                We are working on a first version of Playback Reports (a.k.a. proof-of-play reports). These will initially be provided as downloadable CSV files that will contain Media ID, Player ID, Media Tags, Player Tags, timestamp generated, timestamp received, and a few other entries. These will be accessible via a simple configuration page to generate these reports on an daily, weekly or monthly basis.

                                Next iteration will add visualizations.

                                Can Yodeck play that video clip only from 01:10 to 06:15?

                                • Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

                                  Building on : http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13294017-weekday-filter
                                  we would like it to be possible to specify a specific number of days for the "Every" field (recurrence).
                                  Many restaurants use a menu that cycles either weekly, biweekly, triweekly, etc. (In most cases here we have a tri-weekly menu rotation). What would be great in the scheduler is to be able to schedule a show “Every Monday” or to repeat “Every 3rd Monday” for example. Microsoft Task Scheduler in Windows is an example of how this would work.

                                    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.

                                        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!

                                        • Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

                                          Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

                                            We do plan to provide a Yodeck Player app for Android. As you may understand, this requires a lot of effort. So, it might take several months until it gets completed. We target the end of 2017 for a first version, but it may well be 2018 until it gets released.
