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.

        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.

        Hi guys,

        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.

        Sounds great with the Web Player. When will those features be available? In our case, our office is located far way from the screen, so without a preview monitor we can't really dare to publish anything, unless we go on location to upload content... Thanks for updates!

        Perfect solution, go for it!
