  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.

      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.

    • Master Playlists that can play multiple sub-playlists

        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…

      • audio as an asset

        Add audio as a separate asset. I want to play a song behind my graphic slides

          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.

        • Allow for expanding Player available storage through USB flash drives

          Since SD storage is limited, it would be great to add support for expanding storage through USB drives

            Support and requests for this feature is quite low, so we are freezing it for now… most users are ok with a standard 8GB SD card, while they can also get a 32GB card with lots of space.

          • Premade Footer Scrollers

            Provide some premade scrolling footer content -

            Stock - select up to x stock symbols;
            Latest News (like Fox News Channel);
            Airport info;

              • 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.

                      Ad agencies need reports on what has been played back. We need exact reports on what has played.

                      • 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.

                        • Weekday Filter

                          Make it easier to schedule certain times for the entire week/month/year by giving a weekday filter, which would apply the playlist/item you are wanting to schedule to certain days of the week (IE, Mon-Fri/Mon-Sat)
                          Would also work for hours, for example, if I want to play a "Happy Hour Specials" playlist between 14:00-16:00 Tues-Thurs, I would only have to enter it once to perform such task.

                              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.

                                  Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

                                • 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.

                                  • Undo all changes since "Submit to Players?" was last clicked

                                    Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.

                                    Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."

                                      While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.

                                      Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.

                                    • yodeck.com site status report - for known acute issues with the site

                                      Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.

                                      This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.

                                        This would be indeed a great addition. Currently, we have several different subsystems, so it would be good to have an overview is something is wrong or not. We will definitely need to add service status reporting, as well as maintenance/updates schedule.

                                        An overall dashboard showing all thumbnails from all devices would be great. It would provide a quick view if devices show what they are supposed to show.
