      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.

        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.

      • 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

        • 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.

              • 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?

                • 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 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.

                              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.

                                  If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)

                                  If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).

                                  Please provide more feedback on this.

                                    First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).

                                    Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.

                                    So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.

                                      Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.

                                      In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?

                                      If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.

                                      Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?

                                        One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.

                                        There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

                                        Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

                                        I find it really strange that these Yodeck Playboxes don't come in a VESA mount case.

                                        This is for digital signage and 99% of customer's will want to mount their Pi onto the back of their display.

                                        I'm having to find other ways of mounting it onto the TV such as taping it on or cable tie.

                                        I could even be better off buying a VESA case for £4 and just swapping cases so I can mount it onto the back of the display.

                                          Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.

                                            Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:

                                            1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
                                            2) normalize volume for all Media

                                            Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.
