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.

    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...

    Cheers

    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!
