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.
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.26 votes
This is indeed in our plans. We will add support for recurrence in hours and minutes. Thank you for your suggestion!
Add a calendar that can be managed through Yodeck18 votes
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?
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.16 votes
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.
Additional Fonts12 votes
If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)
If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).
Please provide more feedback on this.
Birthday employees ?11 votes
There are a lot of ideas for Widgets. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to create all of the Widgets that our customers need. That is why we provide the ability to create your own Custom Widget:
The Widget you are proposing can be easily created. Within the Widget UI, you would enter the name and birthday of each employee and the Widget would display it easily.
Reach out if you need help with the development. We are marking this as “under review” only to keep this request and see if it can get more traction down the road.
can we get an ability to trim the videos, a few of the videos i wasnt to stream from youtube have delays on the end, some with adverts in the last few seconds. can we get an option to only show the first x number of second of each video. Thanks11 votes
For example: a video clip starts at 00:00 and ends at 10:15.
Can Yodeck play that video clip only from 01:10 to 06:15?10 votes
Sounds reasonable. We need to review if this would be possible.
Capacity to add multiple links of youtube at once and/ or use youtube channels with list of videos10 votes
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.
Ability to have a slide show of random photos from zzz folder and play for xxx minutes.
This would allow me to play a video or two - then some photos - then back to the videos... Then show some more of the random photos.9 votes
We are considering adding an option to play a Playlist randomly. But this is half the story of what you described.
The other thing that you are implying is playing multiple Playlists per region. So, you can have some photos shown randomly, and then show a video. We are still designing a way to achieve that gracefully. There are three options that this could be implemented:
- Support Playlists of Playlists
- Support Playlists of Shows
- Support Multiple Playlists per region in a Show
We have not finalized the design on how this will be implemented.
Add support for Yodeck retrieving a media file from a URL instead of having to download and upload to Yodeck
It would be great to have an option for providing an image file or a video file from a URL instead of uploading to Yodeck. Files would still be stored on Yodeck servers, but the user won't have to download the media and upload it to Yodeck servers.7 votes
Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?7 votes
One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.
Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.
Broadcast an immediate message on all screens or a group of screens.7 votes
Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.
In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?
If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.
Since SD storage is limited, it would be great to add support for expanding storage through USB drives6 votes
Support and requests for this feature is quite low, so we are freezing it for now… most users are ok with a standard 8GB SD card, while they can also get a 32GB card with lots of space.
I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.
A remote or button with +/- and show a number in the screen. As a system like Easy Turn or so.5 votes
We are considering this feature as a premium Widget in Yodeck. As soon as we have feedback, we will update this suggestion.
I find it really strange that these Yodeck Playboxes don't come in a VESA mount case.
This is for digital signage and 99% of customer's will want to mount their Pi onto the back of their display.
I'm having to find other ways of mounting it onto the TV such as taping it on or cable tie.
I could even be better off buying a VESA case for £4 and just swapping cases so I can mount it onto the back of the display.4 votes
We are considering to provide additional options for cases. VESA could be an option.
add gps usb to the raspi and to show the gps location on a map on the screen, that help in transportation.4 votes
It would be really interesting to provide this feature. We will look into it and let you know.
I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!3 votes
You can change to “Folder View” and massively change duration for all your slides.
But yes, this could be useful as an option for each User.
Would it be possible to add an "Duplicate screen" button to the Monitor page? This way the settings could be copied form an existing screen. The name and registration number for the new screen could be given for example in an popup dialog.3 votes
Sounds reasonable. I will check with the team if feasible (due to restriction on permissions).
Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.2 votes
Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:
1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
2) normalize volume for all Media
Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.
