      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/

    • RSS feeds and tickers

        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!

      • 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!

        • 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…

            Two new fields have been added: “Play Since” and “Play Until”. So, you can define a period for which the Media is valid. Outside this time-frame, the Media will be skipped during playback.

          • 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.

              The Instagram Widget is now available! You can use it to display feed from hashtags, users and locations! You can display top posts, or a live feed with new posts on your screens!

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • Add User Security To Monitor Groups

                  Now that multi-user and monitor groups exists, add granularity to assign specific monitor groups to specific users

                    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!

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                          Yodeck now supports managing multiple users per account. Each user can be assigned Permissions (View, Create, Change, Delete) for each section of the Yodeck Portal (e.g. Media, Shows, Schedules, Monitors, etc).

                        • Ability to add Live TV

                          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!

                            • 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.

                              • Volume control

                                Add the ability to control the device volume.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • Keep cookies after restart

                                        It's a very important thing to keep the cookies after reboot.

                                            Video-Wall with Yodeck are now possible! Here are the full instructions on how to set it up with Yodeck:

                                            https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/Creating+a+Video-Wall+with+Yodeck

                                            You use X+1 Players for supporting X number of screens (in any orientation or relative position, even asymmetric layouts) . The output of the “master” Player is connected to an HDMI-to-RTP device (LKV373A recommended), and all other Players will reproduce their respective part of the output.

                                            We will soon add an easier way to setup the Video-Wall that will need much less configuration and fuss.
