  1. enable hardware acceleration for the webkit browser

    we need a browser that supports hardware acceleration in order to have video or animation render in the browser smoothly. Currently even simple animation isn't smooth, and is really limiting what we can use Yodeck for. This is particularly problematic with custom widgets where our hands are tied as far as development goes because everything that moves is choppy. It looks like others have developed webkit based browsers that support hardware acceleration that could be similar to what we would need in yodeck? https://forums.resin.io/t/fullscreen-webkit-browser-with-hw-accelerated-css-webgl-and-html5-video-on-the-raspberrypi-3/741

    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with!

    We do have customers using touchscreens with Yodeck. We do plan to provide some better support for configuring the touchscreen.

    Touchscreens are usable with Widgets and Web Page, and we plan to expand support for navigating content (move to next, previous) and add support for an on-screen keyboard and navigation buttons for the web browser.

  4. Restrict Media to specific time

    I want to build a tag based playlist, where in the morning comes picture A and in the evening picture B. I can them both with "Tag Morning" and "Tag Evening". And build two playlists. But i think it can be easier to set a time or date range, like in the scheduler, right in the media settings. So that Picture A is only showed in the morning.
    Is this possible?

  5. Show Priority for Emergency Messages.

    Creating priority levels for shows. This way if you are using the screens in a building and a fire alarm sounds, you can have a show setup for fire alarms (with instructions) that you can quickly login, trigger it to play and once finished can have it revert back to your main screen.

  8. provide a quick mechanism to override the current schedule

    I am envisioning something like exists on a typical programmable thermostat, which allow you to override the schedule without actually editing the schedule. I am using the signs in a church, and most of the time the schedule works well, however if there is a special service day or time change, I'd like to be able to say "play show X now" - either forever or until a certain time. After I cancel the override, or the time is reached, then the normal schedule resumes.

    Currently the only way I seem to be able to do this is to modify…

    We are considering to add this feature to Yodeck.

    Specifically, you will need to add a web camera or a Raspberry Pi Camera and use Google Coral, a USB AI module that does analytics and demographics of viewers. Total additional cost for hardware per screen would be something around $100. And you would get a) reports on number of viewers and demographics, b) triggers to change content based on demographic groups (e.g. ads targeting males over 50).

    We love this feature, but, to be honest, it is a bit down the road, likely for Q1-Q2 2020. Hope you stay on board to see it getting released!

  10. make it easier to use OR operations when filtering media for a tag based playlist.

    Having to click Add More to in order to filter by OR is kind of confusing. The phrase "add more" doesn't seem to suggest that OR is an option and I didn't find anything on the support pages to suggest this is how I would filter with OR. I think it would be easier to navigate if you could just choose the operator AND/OR between tags in the list.

    We do provide an option for a custom power script that allows you to override the way screen powering on/off works.

    For what else would that make sense? Please provide more context and use-cases so that we can investigate in detail and evaluate how we could do something like this.

  13. Smart playlists to automatically play images in a specific folder

    We already have support for Tag-based Playlist. It allows you to create a Playlist that pulls in all Media based on combinations of Media Tags. So, you can upload Media, tag them, and Playlists are updated automatically.

    The Tag-based Playlists feature is available under the “Pro” plan.

    We are thinking about using Folders in a similar way.

  14. Schedule Expiration Date / Column

    Have the date a schedule is due to expire/run out as a column option in schedules interface so you can sort in that order

    Developing an app for performing basic functions and receiving notifications is in our plans, but it is a low priority. The Yodeck portal works ok under a mobile web browser, so it is not a hard requirement to develop such an app.

  19. Add the ability to place shows in a playlist

    This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.

    For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.

    Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.

    We are making some changes in our playback engine that might make this feature possible.

    For sure, we are planning to provide an option to time-sync Playlists. This would allow you to create Playlists of Playlists, and sync the “master” Playlists. Combined with the special playlist item “Hide Playlist”, you could also change the layout.

    Of course, this is rather complex, but it will be possible.

    After this is possible, for providing a complete Show Sequence feature, it is more of a matter of strategy concerning simplicity of the platform; adding such a feature would complicate the user experience. But it is something that we will definitely consider.
