    We have released support for audio assets! Here are the details:

    1) you can upload audio files as a new Media type
    2) you can use audio files within regular Playlists – when an audio asset is played back within your Show (added on the Show layout editor) nothing will show up on your screen (just like using the “Empty” special item)
    3) there is an additional field just below the Show editor that allows you to specify a “Background Audio” Playlist — all Media in this Playlist (including video files, audio files, web pages with audio) will not appear on screen, so you will only get the audio track from these. If tyou use this field, then all Media added normally in the Show layout editor will be muted.

    This way, you will be able to split audio and video content effectively! Check out more in our announcement: https://www.yodeck.com/news/software-update-audio-files/

  2. RSS feeds and tickers

    The ability to bring in real time data in the form of a customisable ticker and rss containers you can customise

    The RSS ticker is now available on our production site! Go ahead and check it out!

    The ticker is super smooth (GPU-powered) and quite flexible. You can add one or more entries, including static texts and RSS feeds.

    You also have a few customization options:

    - scrolling speed (in seconds edge-to-edge)
    - font type
    - font styling, color & transparency
    - background color & transparency

    You can also have more than 1 ticker on the same Show, it works great!

  3. Master Playlists that can play multiple sub-playlists

    Ability to have a Master Playlist that can play sub-playlists. (i.e. for Real Estate).
    -- Master Playlist -- Current Listings
    -- 123 Maple St. Listing
    -- 590 Maroon Bell Ave. Listing
    -- 9029 E. Main St.

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

    Please note that this feature will be part of our new subscription plans, which will be announced shortly and enforced by end of Q1-2018. Until then, you can use this feature for free!

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Scripted Login Support

    We need the ability to auto-login to web pages via Yodeck. Can you please develop a scripting engine that would have the ability to supply login credentials to various web pages?

  7. 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.

    This long-awaited feature is now available as “Workspaces” in our Enterprise subscription plan!

    You are 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 are able to structure your access control in any way you want and make sure Users have the access they only need.

    Check it out, all Plans (incl. Enterprise) are completely free for 1 Monitor!

  9. Remote shell / reboot

    It would be great to have remote access to the pi OS via the web portal (piSignage supports it).

    Sometimes I need to reboot, or remotely shut down, and there's no way at the moment.

    Users now have a “Reboot” and “Shutdown” action within the Monitor details.

    We still do not provide remote shell, but it is possible to do so. If you think there is a need for that, please post a new suggestion on the forum.

  10. 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.

  11. Power on toggle

    It would be great if there were a way to send power on or off CEC commands when your monitor doesn't come on.

  12. Add playback reports per media, per show, and per player, for reporting to advertisers

    Ad agencies need reports on what has been played back. We need exact reports on what has played.

    Playback Reports are here!!

    The first version of Playback Reports (a.k.a. proof-of-play reports) provide downloadable CSV files that 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.

  13. Multi User Accounts

    Allowing the ability to add extra user accounts to manage the presentations with permission groups as well.

    For example
    - full user will get everything
    - editor - can do everything but billing
    - author - will only be able to create shows

    I hope that makes sense.

    Perhaps could be done thru a HDMI to USB Input Device installed on the Player.

    The TextBox Widget is now available on our production site. With it, you are able to edit text just like a richtext editor (e.g. MS Word), also specifying a background color and background opacity (transparency). You are able to add this Widget in a playlist, just like any other Media.

    We are planning to improve this editor, because right now it does not provide many options that we feel our users need, but you can still use it in most cases. You can also specify custom HTML code, if you need to. But we are closing this idea now as completed!

  16. Ability to render more advanced web content.

    We have a number of websites that we want to display. Many of these are unable to be rendered using the Yodeck player but they render fine using a normal browser. Good example below:

    http://map.norsecorp.com/#/

    We now support Chromium as a secondary Web rendering engine! It is faster than our standard web viewer and can optionally provide limited support for Flash.

    Only restriction is that Chromium cannot be rendered on top of video Playlists or other overlays. We plan to change that really soon. We issued a new suggestion for those of you that want to be updated on that: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/19400362-ability-to-overlay-chromium-and-pdf-on-top-of-vide

    Keep in mind that Chromium is much heavier and resource-hungry than standard Web Viewer. You should always try the standard web viewer first, if possible. Having multiple Playlist on screen using Chromium can place a lot of load on your Player and can cause trouble in the long-run.

  17. Volume control

    Add the ability to control the device volume.

  18. Weekday Filter

    Make it easier to schedule certain times for the entire week/month/year by giving a weekday filter, which would apply the playlist/item you are wanting to schedule to certain days of the week (IE, Mon-Fri/Mon-Sat)
    Would also work for hours, for example, if I want to play a "Happy Hour Specials" playlist between 14:00-16:00 Tues-Thurs, I would only have to enter it once to perform such task.

  19. Dynamic playlists and media tags

    Dynamic Playlists and Media Tags. (1) Ability to add "tags" to media. (2) Ability to define a playlist as: All Media with the tags: (LIVE) and ((Building-Main) or (Building-All)).

    That way just adding a tag on media would push new content out to monitors. Likewise, removing the LIVE tag (in this example) would remove media from playlist.
