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 that direction and we will definitely deliver, but it might take some months to have it working. Also, it is important to understand that not all features will be available through the web-based player. It remains to be seen how many will not be available, but things like running code on Web Pages with our script engine, will likely not be possible through that.

Still, we want to provide a good way to taste the platform before ordering a player, so it is definitely coming. It is just hard to do and will take some more time.

    Monitor preview or remote access to view what each monitor is showing currently.

    How about that one of your monitors can be used as a preview monitor and this monitor is not charged which would be the same a having a single monitor account that is free.

    The benefit is that when you build the show on the "preview" monitor that all the content is in the same account and you can now push the same show to the production monitor

    I am new here folks and maybe this has already been suggested. Why not provide a short-term solution which is a preconfigured virtual box which emulates the Raspberry Pi. Virtualbox is still free from Oracle and we should be able to emulate the PI on the development PC.

    A way to zoom in on the "Shows" page so you can have a better idea of how your layout looks.

    It would be great if there was a small floating
    "live screen" so you could see what your changes look like when you push something to a player.

    I need this feature very badly. We will be running Yodeck on a 5 meters wide LED display, which is on top of a big building. It is not visible to the office (inside the same building) so there is no way to tell if the display is showing correctly..

    Only solution currently is to have second raspberry with smaller display inside the building, but would be much cleaner to have a web preview. Perhaps with a watermark, doesn't matter really.

    I asked support about this feature and am told it is on the road map. Looks like it has been on the roadmap for going on two years.

    Keep it free for one monitor, and add a watermark or something.
    It is only to test before put in online!

    Small size preview in the show edit page would be great please but it must show the widgets and fonts in correct proportion. Quality is less important
