  1. User Customizable Screenshot timeframe or on demand screenshot

    It would be nice if users had the option to manually select the amount of time at which the platform creates a screenshot for each monitor, not all deployment run on unlimited data and must save precious data capacity where needed.

    for example i just found myself in a situation where we are running deployments on 4g modems with 2gb data plans, for content delivery and monitoring. the screenshot runs every 30 seconds as long as your online and every 2 hours if you are offline and each screenshot is about 76 KB in zise. let's say you have 10…

      We are in the process to implement this. Unfortunately, this behavior was required in order to have fresh screenshots for all screens fast.

      We will transition Player communications through a new backend component (we call it the Hub). This will allow to instantly request screenshots from the Player, as soon as you open up the details of the Monitor. Also, it will allow to show a full-res screenshot, if needed, through an additional Action.

      In the meantime, try not being online without a reason and be patient!

    • New widgets

      I would like to see more widgets. A better time widget. A better weather widget. I would like to add a wether cam widget.

        We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with!

      • WIFI - on site manual choosing by client or technician

        Option to manually enter WIFI name and password directly to "Player". This would be really appreciated.

        e.g.: Client connects keyboard and mouse. After pressing some keyboard shortcut(e.g. ALT+W) graphic window will pop up and allow to choose wifi and set password.

            We do have the public IP for Geo-IP reason. It would rather simple to display it on the Status Page.

            For running CLI commands to the Player, we do provide an option for VPN access to our Partners but not to direct customers; it would jeopardize the Players’ reliability and security if we did so. So I am afraid this part of you request is rejected. I am changing the title of this suggestion to only include the WAN IP part of your request.

          • Create a widget store

            I've developed a couple of widgets, and more will no doubt follow. It would be great to have somewhere to share them - either free or for a nominal charge, like the appstores for iPhone/android/the other one.

              Yes, we do plan to have a Widget marketplace. :-) It is great that you are interested in this, hope we have more Partners and people coming in and voting for this one!

            • We would like to be able to synchronise various videos over different monitors.

              Allows "interaction" between different screens using different videos e.g. 2 people talking to each other from one screen to the next.

                We are planning to provide support for playback synchronization across Playlists within the same device and across Playlists on different devices. This will be provided as a toggle called “synced playback” on Playlists. It will use the current time to sync playback across all Playlists marked as synced.

                This will come towards the end of Q3-2019. In the meantime, we have a workaround that has the same effect with some restrictions and a bit weird setup. Reach out if you want to try it out.

              • 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.

                  This feature has been the No.1 request for a long time. There technical reason that this has not been implemented yet, but we are working towards the right direction. Let me explain.

                  First, we will provide a quick preview button right inside the Show editor. This button will allow you to push the current show to your test player(s) so that you can check how everything looks a) without saving the Show and b) without pushing to all affected Players. It should make it much easier to preview things fast. But, still, you need a Player to use for this. *We will add this to our Oct 26th release! Stay tuned!*

                  Now, concerning the web-based preview, we are working on a Web-powered Yodeck Player. This Player will be the basis for building a preview through the browser. This is quite hard to implement. Really hard. We are working towards…

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Screenshot also in monitor listview

                      idea: if you have multiple monitors, it would be great to see the last screenshot in the Monitorslist

                      • Content triggering

                        Hello,

                        It will be nice to be able to trigger content on demand via an external physical source like a USB button or via a UDP command form a mobile app. Features like play media on demand or be able to control playback features.

                          We are planning to provide trigger support within 2019.

                          We are now in the process of restructuring our rendering engine in order to allow several features to be implemented. One of these features is triggers. We are planning to initially support UDP, TCP/HTTP, GPIO events, and then support keyboard/mouse events.

                          [Draft Specs follow:] Triggers will be available as a different menu item, in order to manage, set them up, test them, and so on. After setting them up, Users will be able to use them in Playlists, e.g. to skip a Media (or Subplaylist) entry, jump to specific Media (or Subplaylist) entry, and so on.

                        • Multiple WiFi Profiles

                          It would be great if we could configure multiple wifi profiles on the device and set priority. This way it could connect to a "Primary WiFi" (ideally the customers) but if it can't and a tech is on site, have it connect to their hotspot as a backup and have it preprogrammed (I.e. if you can't connect to customer wifi, connect to a failover wifi profile we can configure through the portal.) Typically we provision the device before it goes out to customer this way in theory it's plug and play if they provide us with the correct wifi info…

                          • Content Refresh

                            Am new with Yodeck but I would like to see either faster loading of new/changed content over typical client wifi speeds OR some way to blank the screen while new imagery is loaded. My experience so far (limited I admit) leads me to think my shows are amateurish when I have to look at periods where things are sequentially being blacked out and sequentially replaced.Makes me think of the old days when things like this were really slow. Surely there is a better way in 2018.

                              I guess you are talking about transition from one show to another. This will be significantly improve really soon. We are working on an improved version of the playback engine that will allow much faster transitions.

                              Stay tuned to see it get released!

                                In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

                                  Tag-based Playlists will perform a shuffle before sending out the Playlist.

                                  In any case, we will be adding support for Random Playback really soon, right after our new playback engine is ready.

                                    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets.

                                    Stay tuned!

                                  • Status of the Download to the player on the Dashboard

                                    We should have the Status of the content downloading to the player, Now its highly uncertain to know when it can happen.

                                      We plan to provide a status feedback from the device to the dashboard, so that you know the exact state that the Player is in (e.g. Downloading, Configuring, etc). This would also confirm that an online Player indeed has the latest content received (e.g. show something like “Pending…” vs “OK” for being up-to-date).

                                      These are just thought, wording might be different, but the feature is definitely coming. Stay tuned!

                                    • Increase frequency of monitor status

                                      More frequent monitor status updates. Currently seems to be very hour, which is too infrequent.

                                        We now have a new way to communicate with deployed Players. It allows for much more frequent updates.

                                        For the status info, we are planning to do several improvements:

                                        - Update the status info as soon as you enter the Monitor details section.
                                        - Keep full historical data on Monitor status info and show graphs and history (e.g. temperature over time, or graph showing online/offline status)
                                        - Show the Player status (downloading, playback, updating, etc) almost in real-time

                                        These will probably this fall. Stay tuned!

                                      • Playlist: import only the files that are not yet present, to avoid duplications.

                                        You can select all the files in a folder and import. But when you add a lot of files to a folder and you want to add only those in the playlist it becomes laborious to look for them one by one.

                                          We have released a new feature called Tag Playlists. You assign Media with Tags and then you can create dynamic Playlists using combinations of Media Tags. Then, when you upload a Media, you also add the required Tags, so that they get pulled into the Tag Playlists.

                                          That might work in your case.

                                          In the long run, we are also planning to provide Folder-based Playlists, so that all Media in the specific Folders are automatically included in a Playlist.

                                        • Vertical Text Scroll

                                          Please add a vertical scrolling text widget
