  1. Ability to notify users of new content in media for their use.

    We have multiple workspaces/users/screens across our enterprise. We would like to automatically notify users of new content being added to the Media gallery.

    Indeed, the “workflow” part of Workspaces needs a bit of polishing.

    However, implementing your suggestion would be a bit complex. Yodeck cannot tell when you are done adding Media on the Media Gallery. And if you work a lot on Media, this can be annoying, and at the end, could be just ignored by people.

    Perhaps it would make sense to be able to explicitly send a predefined message (e.g. “New Media Available”, of course being editable) to all people on a Workspace.

    To all subscribers receiving this or all new readers: Send over some more ideas and we will evaluate and let you know!

  2. 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.

  3. Pricing

    While the idea of yodeck is great, most people looking for a raspberry pi videowall system are trying to find an alternative to other expensive videowall systems out there. It truly defeats the purpose of using extremely affordable equipment paired with a susbcription fee that would in the end turn out to be more expensive.

    Imagine honda selling $100,000 car in order to be sustainable? Some might buy them if they can afford them, but Hondas were made for very specific market (the ones who couldn't afford a Mercedes).

    Imagine how cool it would be to actually be able to…

  4. Move add/edit/delete icons to left

    Would like to see add/edit/delete icons (actions) moved to the left of the screen near the item name, i.e. monitor name. On larger monitors, that is a lot of mouse travel to get to the most clicked part of the page

    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.

  7. 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 provide an option for a custom power script that allows you to override the way screen powering on/off works.

    For what else would that make sense? Please provide more context and use-cases so that we can investigate in detail and evaluate how we could do something like this.

  9. 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.

  10. Smart playlists to automatically play images in a specific folder

    Smart Playlists - Automatically play all images in a specific folder. This will eliminate the extra step of adding new images to a playlist after loading them.

    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.

    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.

  12. 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.

  14. Auto Delete after last reference in schedules option for media, playlists and shows.

    We do provide an Expiration Date for Media, but it does not delete the Media. It might make sense to delete the Media altogether.

    Could you please let us know more usage details on why a Playlist/Show might need to be deleted on a date? That resemble a “Campaign”-like feature that is in our plans to provide. Let us know more details so that we can udnerstand the need and suggest a proper way to deal with it.

  15. Queue system

    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.

    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.

    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.

  18. 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?

    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.

  20. Sound Check.

    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.
