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?64 votes
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.
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.59 votes
We will be providing 2 distinct features for accommodating this need:
First, we will allow paid accounts to use an extra (free) test Monitor. This test monitor will regularly show an overlay of the Yodeck logo on top of content, so it will not be suitable to be used as public display. It will be used solely for testing out changes to Monitors before pushing.
Then, we will be developing a full-fledge Web Player. This Web Player will have a unique URL which you will be able to open up on any browser. From that point on, you will be able to manage content displayed as with any other Pi-based Player. We will then use this Player to also display a one-time preview of the Show.
Hope this works for all of you guys. Please be kind enough to leave a comment if you think otherwise.
Add audio as a separate asset. I want to play a song behind my graphic slides28 votes
We will provide:
1) audio files you upload, as a new Media type
2) audio tracks from Youtube videos, as a new Media type
3) audio management for Shows – you will be able to add a Playlist that will only provide audio
Additionally, we will provide audio device management, so you will be able to Mute the Player, change the output volume, and more.
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.24 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
It would be great if there were a way to send power on or off CEC commands when your monitor doesn't come on.16 votes
Move to “Accepted” state. We will be adding some action buttons soon, like “Shutdown”, “Reboot”, etc, so we will add these also.
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.14 votes
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!
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.10 votes
This sounds interesting. Really interesting.
It blends a bit with Campaign reporting feature. But we will probably do this as you describe it.
Also, this would work very well the our Playlist vs SubPlaylist implementation. Check out this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/16208410
So, besides Playlists and SubPlaylists, you could have TagPlaylist (as you describe it).
Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.10 votes
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.
Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.
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 :p9 votes
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.
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.9 votes
Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.
This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.7 votes
This would be indeed a great addition. Currently, we have several different subsystems, so it would be good to have an overview is something is wrong or not. We will definitely need to add service status reporting, as well as maintenance/updates schedule.
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 votes
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.
When it changes from one show to another we go to black screen, it would be nice that the user can setup its own background instead of Black, could be colors or images.5 votes
Turns out that setting a solid color background or setting an image as a background is easy. We will provide this option soon.
Provide some premade scrolling footer content -
Weather - enter ZipCode;
Stock - select up to x stock symbols;
Latest News (like Fox News Channel);
Airport info;5 votes
The ticker (scrolling text) Widget will support any RSS feed. We will be including a menu with many popular RSS feeds.
Ability to manually set the resolution on the pi4 votes
Right now, you need to follow this guide to change the resolution on your Player:
We will be adding all useful configuration options like this (e.g. resolution, refresh rate, audio, component-vs-HDMI, disabling on-screen warning icons, etc) as menu items within the Yodeck portal, so that you can easily change these.
Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.4 votes
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.
Any chance you could look at providing 2 factor authentication for access to the WebApp. Would be great for Whitelabel Partners3 votes
We plan to add 2-factor authentication, although not in our top priorities. We are considering SMS, email, and Google Authenticator.
idea: if you have multiple monitors, it would be great to see the last screenshot in the Monitorslist3 votes
We will add this, it is really useful. Check out also another feature request for a special multi-view of all screenshots in a single screen.
The ability to style ticker (expecially rss one) with Css. Also including Google Font through css3 votes
Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.
