      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.

    • Power on toggle

      It would be great if there were a way to send power on or off CEC commands when your monitor doesn't come on.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            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.

          • Weather Widget

            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?

              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.

            • 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.

              • Instagram Social Wall for posts tagged to a location or selected hashtags.

                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.

                    We plan to add support for other scrolling Widgets, like feeds and more. We also plan to provide access to this through HTML5.

                    Please post comments with any ideas that you have.

                  • 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.

                    • add image button before list of images

                      Would like to see the Add Images buttons duplicated at the top of the image list as well as the bottom. If I know its a new image, I shouldnt have to scroll all the way to the end to add another

                        Your feedback is valid. I do not know if the proposed layout is the best possible. We will have to see when we make some changes to the UI (for sure, within the next 2 months)

                          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.

                            Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
                            Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.

                              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.

                            • 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.

                                Would be awesome to be able to receive monitor status alerts via Pushover. Would be pretty simple to implement. User would enter their key and then they would receive notifications for all monitors on their account. This would be especially useful for me as a reseller.

                                  We plan to provide for more complex notifications settings. This will include mobile app notifications (not sure if it is going to be Pushover or our own app), custom email notifications, even SMS notifications.

                                    Sub-playlists are indeed required.

                                    We will be probably adding SubPlaylists as a new type of playlist. So, you will have:

                                    - Playlists (accept Media and SubPlaylists as items)
                                    - SubPlaylists (accept only Media as items)

                                    This is only 2-levels deep; no Playlists of SubPlaylists of SubPlaylists, and so on…

                                  • On screen key board widget with button to hide and open

                                    Onscreen keyboard widget to interact with items on you display

                                      Yodeck has limited support for interactivity. Right now, you can build and upload HTML5 apps as Widgets, but they must not be placed as overlays in order for them to be interactive. Same goes for Web Pages.

                                      An on-screen keyboard would be a nice addition. Given that this would require a touch screen, we would also have to implement an easy way to setup and calibrate touchscreens (can be done).

                                      We are marking this feature as Accepted and we will see down the road how things progress.

                                    • Playlist/Shows Transitions

                                      Moving from One Playlist to another in a schedule is not very clean right now. If the system can either pre-load the next playlist so that it behaves like a new clip, or hold a pre-defined slide so that the screen does not go black between changes.

                                        We do plan to improve on the time it takes to switch from one Show to the next. Doing a preload on a Show-level, has some implications, but it could work.

                                        In the mean time, you might be served by this feature:

                                        Finally, due to the implementation, providing for smooth Shows transition would require this feature implemented first:

                                        We are going to mark this as Accepted, but it will take some time till you see it released.

                                          Currently, we set up any 3G/4G USB dongle manually for paid customers.

                                          We do not yet have access to an extended set of USB dongle, so that we can test them in detail. But we plan to provide some elementary support for them through the UI (at least for some brands/models).

                                        • 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.
