Download show directly to MicroSD for use in offline Playbox
Download show to MicroSD. From a separate workstation, download to the SD card so that it can be placed in an offline Playbox.
why would anyone need this?
Yodeck is in its nature an online service. Support completely offline Players is honestly out of scope. It would create several problems:
1) The standard Raspberry Pi does not have a real-time clock, it synced time online. Having support for offline players means that we would need to use RTC in order to support any kind of scheduling.
2) Even if this feature was supported, we would require Users to update their MicroSD cards every month. The Player needs to get online at least once a month, else it will stop playback. This is for billing and licensing reasons.
3) On Nov 24th 2017 release, we are adding support for 4G/LTE USB dongles. Even if there is no Internet connection available, using a USB dongle will allow for an online Player to work just fine.
4) if we were to support a offline method, that would be using a USB flash drive to make content transfer easier. But again, why do that?
Yodeck was designed to have more than just 1 screen. In that sense, it was designed to be online and manage thousands of screens easily through the Internet. Providing this sort of a solution is really out of scope.
