  1. Show Preview

    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.

    This feature has been the No.1 request for a long time. There technical reason that this has not been implemented yet, but we are working towards the right direction. Let me explain.

    First, we will provide a quick preview button right inside the Show editor. This button will allow you to push the current show to your test player(s) so that you can check how everything looks a) without saving the Show and b) without pushing to all affected Players. It should make it much easier to preview things fast. But, still, you need a Player to use for this. *We will add this to our Oct 26th release! Stay tuned!*

    Now, concerning the web-based preview, we are working on a Web-powered Yodeck Player. This Player will be the basis for building a preview through the browser. This is quite hard to implement. Really hard. We are working towards…

  2. Create a widget store

    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.

  3. Provide transition effects

    Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

    We will be implementing OpenGL-based image playback, and we will be implementing transition options.

    Minimum transition that will be provided is cross-fading and fade-through-black or white. Hopefully, most of the transitions here will work: transitions.glsl.io if they do, it will be really awesome.

    This feature has been delayed. We first need to provide our new rendering engine that will allow to utilize the GPU of the Player. The new rendering engine release is now on beta. After we have the new rendering engine tested and working well, and after we have released it on our standard site, then we will start working on the transitions. Generally, the whole transitions mechanisms will need change, in order to provide better Playlist management internally during Playback. So, transition effects might take a while to arrive.

    In the mean time, we will be providing a HTML-based Widget, providing slide and cross-fade transitions with…

    Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) has been coming up in requests. This requires a new Widget and some serious development.

    We are growing the team, and new team members coming on board will start working on new Widgets, with focus on the main social widgets and this calendar widget. These two are the most requested features so far.

    Stay tuned!

  5. Container clip for random media

    It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
    The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
    Example:

    - Logo
    - General info
    - Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
    - Product clip
    - Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
    - ... and so on

    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with!

  7. Widget ideas

    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.

  8. API to connect to your subscription / Account / Management

    Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.

    Examples:

    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 :p

    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.

  9. Change Input on Schedule

    Add the ability to set the input of the TV via CEC with an existing schedule. For example, when I start content (turn the TV on), reset the input of the TV to a specific HDMI input.

    We will be creating a special Widget that will allow you to switch to specific HDMI inputs, or switch to the Live TV. All of this will happen through the HDMI cable using the HDMI-CEC protocol.

    DISCLAIMER: This might not work with all screen brands. We will be performing tests to let our Users know some brands that work with this, but we can’t really test all brands out there.

    In order to further improve compatibility, this Widget will also allow you to setup custom HDMI-CEC commands, so that you can control your TV.

    Since this feature will be a Widget, it means that you will be able to add it to a Playlist (e.g. playback a 20" video and then switch to Live TV, and loop this), or add it to a schedule to have timed changes.

  10. Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

    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.

  11. New widget for news feed

    I suggest a new widget for non-scrolling text for news / RSS Feed, which would display the entire message for 5 - 10 seconds.

  12. Content triggering

    Hello,

    It will be nice to be able to trigger content on demand via an external physical source like a USB button or via a UDP command form a mobile app. Features like play media on demand or be able to control playback features.

    We are planning to provide trigger support within 2019.

    We are now in the process of restructuring our rendering engine in order to allow several features to be implemented. One of these features is triggers. We are planning to initially support UDP, TCP/HTTP, GPIO events, and then support keyboard/mouse events.

    [Draft Specs follow:] Triggers will be available as a different menu item, in order to manage, set them up, test them, and so on. After setting them up, Users will be able to use them in Playlists, e.g. to skip a Media (or Subplaylist) entry, jump to specific Media (or Subplaylist) entry, and so on.

  13. Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

    Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

    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.

    In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

    This is due to a restriction impose by the Raspberry Pi hardware. We plan to allow soon using at least two videos. We are also conducting tests with Raspberry Pi 3 to establish the best possible solution.

    We are working towards a solution that might allow 2 videos running concurrently, provided that the bitrates and resolutions are within range.

  18. Custom background for Schedule.

    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.

  19. Google calendar data source

    Google Calendar entries for a number of days (from current day only - or possibly current half-day only).
    To be shown as a list of 1 or more scrolling (if necessary) entries or as a ticker. With configurable display elements date, time, title, description, where. Also configurable separators (like your ticker).
    Example 1: I would use it for a "Welcome" list of today's (or morning/afternoon) visitors.
    Example 2: Also for a list of upcoming exhibitions.
    Using google as a source of times events allows anyone with access to that the ability to make Yodeck entries without getting into your quite…

  20. Allow starting a show based on an event

    Would like to have a display set up in a waiting room playing a standard general show. But, when a new client arrives would like to "push a button" and have a more detailed show played. It could simply be a predefined named show and GPIO pin to initiate it. Schedule could be set to "Manual".
