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.
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.

+1 here...we desperately need this!
Preciso alterar a resolucao do monitor de saida sendo que utilizo um adaptador de hdmi para rca pois a saida video composto nao funcionou como altero pois a hdmi esta em full e ao colocar o adaptador fica wide
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.
What is the status of a preview before posting?
i hardly need a preview in the browser. maybe with a watermark.

is there an update on this?
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
Ability to view show from a pc to check it is working and displaying correctly.

Can I have a second screen (Also the free accounts
) With a watermark To be able to view my presentation
Before it goes online This would help to prevent mistakes.
I think there should be option to see preview of the content on your system.

When will we have this ability to PREVIEW?
Will like to see a PLAT button
It's been a while since you posted a progress update.
What's the status of the web player implementation?
As a new customer it's worrying to see new developments take so long...
having a preview on the show editor page would be very helpful and would not be usable as an actual monitor so you don't have to worry about it being used as a public display. the editor does not execute the widgets, so it is trial and error to get the widget images to fit the spaces well. When I make edits to the show, I am not always near the monitor to make sure the widgets fit the space properly.
Any updates on this?
Great. Progress report please, Yodeck.
Has this been implemented?
