  1. 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.

    • 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.

          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.

            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:

            https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/Custom+Widget+Developer%27s+Guide

            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.

          • Video lengtt setting

                Developing an app for performing basic functions and receiving notifications is in our plans, but it is a low priority. The Yodeck portal works ok under a mobile web browser, so it is not a hard requirement to develop such an app.

              • Can we play a video clip with a specific time (start, end)?

                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?

                    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.

                  • Random photo slideshow

                    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.

                      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.

                    • Queue system

                      I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.

                      • 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.

                            We already have support for Tag-based Playlist. It allows you to create a Playlist that pulls in all Media based on combinations of Media Tags. So, you can upload Media, tag them, and Playlists are updated automatically.

                            The Tag-based Playlists feature is available under the “Pro” plan.

                            We are thinking about using Folders in a similar way.

                              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.

                              There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

                              Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

                                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.

                                    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 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.

                                    • Default Slide Time Option

                                      Hey there,
                                      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!

                                      • Support video with an alpha channel (transparency) so that one video can frame some other content

                                        I want to be able to use one video with an alpha channel as a "frame" and overlay it on top of another video that is the main focus.

                                        For now, I'm simply layering the one video on top of the other, but that means that there are really hard edges at the edge of the video.

                                          First, we are planning to support multiple videos playback (a whole different request).

                                          Now, concerning alpha-channel in videos, I think this is a firmware issue of the Raspberry Pi. Thee is a way to have a mask, but again no alpha channel beyond that mask.

                                        • Sound Check.

                                          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.

                                            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.
