  1. Support Vimeo

    There are two major video platforms in the world: YouTube and Vimeo. One is preferred by professionals for its emphasis on quality over quantity, but Yodeck only supports the other one. Implementing Vimeo support is just as easy as implementing YouTube support and would make Yodeck a more viable option for professional marketers whose video content is already on the Vimeo platform.

        • enable hardware acceleration for the webkit browser

          we need a browser that supports hardware acceleration in order to have video or animation render in the browser smoothly. Currently even simple animation isn't smooth, and is really limiting what we can use Yodeck for. This is particularly problematic with custom widgets where our hands are tied as far as development goes because everything that moves is choppy. It looks like others have developed webkit based browsers that support hardware acceleration that could be similar to what we would need in yodeck? https://forums.resin.io/t/fullscreen-webkit-browser-with-hw-accelerated-css-webgl-and-html5-video-on-the-raspberrypi-3/741

              We do have customers using touchscreens with Yodeck. We do plan to provide some better support for configuring the touchscreen.

              Touchscreens are usable with Widgets and Web Page, and we plan to expand support for navigating content (move to next, previous) and add support for an on-screen keyboard and navigation buttons for the web browser.

                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.

                  We supported x86 until Jan 2017. Adoption was really, really low, since a) we provide the Player for free to direct customers, and b) using the Raspberry Pi saves you so much on electricity, recovering the cost of the RPi within a couple of years.

                  We are planning to develop soon an HTML5-based player, so this could be easily wrapped to work on x86 hardware.

                  Stay tuned for updates.

                • 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.

                  • Event-Date

                    I use Yodeck to show upcoming events. The TVs are showing the eventflyers with date on the flyer.

                    I would like to make flyers without date and set the date in the yodeck-app, so it is displayed together with the flyer. And when date is over, it is not shown in playlist anymore or is shown with the next date set for that event.

                    That would be a nice upgrade.

                      There is a way to do that already with image-based flyers. To do this, you will be using 3 features:
                      1) Yodeck in-app image editing with layers
                      2) Expiration dates for Media
                      3) [optionally] Tag-based Playlists (available in Pro Plan)

                      So, try doing the following:
                      - Upload your flyers as images
                      - Edit your flyer using the Pixie editor (in-app editor) and add the date as a text layer, and save
                      - Add the valid period for the event as starting/expiring dates in the Image details
                      - Add a Tag named EventFlyers
                      - Say a flyer is for a recurring event. You can duplicate this Media (click the duplicate button), edit the date text using Pixie with the new dates, and again enter them in the starting/expiring date. Make sure the Tag EventFlyers is still there.
                      - Create a Tag-based Playlist that uses all Media with the EventFlyers Tag.
                      -…

                        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.

                      • HDMI switch to TV tuner.

                        Hello.

                        I use your Yodeck display system for my clients.
                        I have a particular request.

                        I would like to switch a Samsung TV in HDMI1 (yodeck) then on the tuner (broadcast of a news channel) then HDMI1 and so on.

                        Do you have a solution?

                          This is very interesting, and we will be able to support it when we release native Widgets.

                          Right now, Widgets (and Custom Widgets) are HTML5-based (except the RSS ticker). So, it is not possible to easily run native code that will interact with the system. We are planning to support native Widgets that will be able to run any code. Using that, we will be able to provide a Widgets that instructs the TV to turn back to the tuner, and then back to the HDMI that the Yodeck Player is connected to.

                          I am leaving it under review, since this is not finalized yet. This needs some hard work to be done!

                        • 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?

                              We are planning to provide support for Zapier. Here is the suggestion in our forum:

                              http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/34154359-integrate-with-zapier

                              Through that, it will be possible to integrate Yodeck with Google Drive, so that any content added to Google Drive is copied to Yodeck and then pushed to your Players.

                              I am tagging this idea as under review, since we might offer a Google Drive (and Dropbox) integration in the future. In any case, we will update all of you with any developments on the Zapier integration.

                            • 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.

                                    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.

                                    I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.
                                    A remote or button with +/- and show a number in the screen. As a system like Easy Turn or so.

                                    • Enable user-agent modification

                                      I'm writing a ddns javascript widget. It's working, but my ddns provider prefers that a custom user-agent header is sent with the http request.

                                      At present, changing this is denied by the browser. Could it be enabled, please?

                                      • Ability to adjust the black gap time been slides.

                                        I find the black gap between videos or images is too short. I've been adding in 2 second black slides to help but it would be nice if we could customize the length of time between for the black gap instead of only having it preset.

                                          The duration of the black gap is not entirely under our control right now. Your request is reasonable though.

                                          We are planning a major internal change to the Player’s software that will allow us finer control of the playback procedure. I will leave this request open so that I can update it if we get any update from the dev team if it is feasible or not.

                                        • Auto-import of UI JSON schema

                                          To simplify widget installation, it would be nice if the back-end could look for a json file (maybe ui.json or schema.json) in the widget's zip file, and import it automatically into the UI configuration area if it exists.

                                            Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).

                                            I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.
