I would be great if the yodeck device would also support screen mirroring (miracast, widi, airplay)? Use case: have signage in meeting rooms (when people come in, are not projecting,...), but as soon as the meeting starts: be able to mirror laptop screens (all brands) for regular meetings too. Would be a killer feature I believe!
It would be difficult to support protocols like that. Currently, the Raspberry Pi supports 1080p video, so you would lose 4K resolution from your laptop. Also, the playback might induce a delay which might not be acceptable. Instead, we are considering to investigate more detailed HDMI-CEC support. We use CEC for turning the screen on and off, but it might be possible to use it to a) detect that another HDMI port was just connected, b) be able to interact with the remote, c) be able to automatically change inputs. This might make more options possible.
I am leaving this feature as “Accepted”, because the need is there and is correct, but the implementation for servicing this need might be different than the one described. If you think otherwise, feel free to comment!

This definitely needs more votes, can be achieved by partnering with Airserver as a licensed/optional feature. That will take care of airplay,miracast as well as chromecast. That way yodeck can focus on what they do best and let the guys from airserver keep up to date with that tech. It's interesting that one of the premium airplay type products airtame are partnering with airserver too....Anyway dropping down to 1080p is fine, even Apple's own 4k apple tv only streams at 1080p
This needs more Upvotes. This would be a fantastic feature for this already good product.
