  1. Support video with an alpha channel (transparency) so that one video can frame some other content

    I want to be able to use one video with an alpha channel as a "frame" and overlay it on top of another video that is the main focus.

    For now, I'm simply layering the one video on top of the other, but that means that there are really hard edges at the edge of the video.

    First, we are planning to support multiple videos playback (a whole different request).

    Now, concerning alpha-channel in videos, I think this is a firmware issue of the Raspberry Pi. Thee is a way to have a mask, but again no alpha channel beyond that mask.

  2. Event-Date

    I use Yodeck to show upcoming events. The TVs are showing the eventflyers with date on the flyer.

    I would like to make flyers without date and set the date in the yodeck-app, so it is displayed together with the flyer. And when date is over, it is not shown in playlist anymore or is shown with the next date set for that event.

    That would be a nice upgrade.

    There is a way to do that already with image-based flyers. To do this, you will be using 3 features:
    1) Yodeck in-app image editing with layers
    2) Expiration dates for Media
    3) [optionally] Tag-based Playlists (available in Pro Plan)

    So, try doing the following:
    - Upload your flyers as images
    - Edit your flyer using the Pixie editor (in-app editor) and add the date as a text layer, and save
    - Add the valid period for the event as starting/expiring dates in the Image details
    - Add a Tag named EventFlyers
    - Say a flyer is for a recurring event. You can duplicate this Media (click the duplicate button), edit the date text using Pixie with the new dates, and again enter them in the starting/expiring date. Make sure the Tag EventFlyers is still there.
    - Create a Tag-based Playlist that uses all Media with the EventFlyers Tag.
    -…

  3. Playlist: import only the files that are not yet present, to avoid duplications.

    You can select all the files in a folder and import. But when you add a lot of files to a folder and you want to add only those in the playlist it becomes laborious to look for them one by one.

    We have released a new feature called Tag Playlists. You assign Media with Tags and then you can create dynamic Playlists using combinations of Media Tags. Then, when you upload a Media, you also add the required Tags, so that they get pulled into the Tag Playlists.

    That might work in your case.

    In the long run, we are also planning to provide Folder-based Playlists, so that all Media in the specific Folders are automatically included in a Playlist.

  4. A debug mode would be really useful

    I think it could be useful to be able to debug memory / CPU usage of the various widgets on-screen at a given time. Whether this was real-time on-screen, or periodically logged to file, I think it'd be very helpful in tracking down opportunities for performance optimisation.

  5. Auto-push when changes are released from the queue.

    Mark changes to be pushed when done rendering. It sometimes takes hours for changes to make it through the queue and be ready to push. I'd like an option to have changes automatically push when ready.

    Yes, we do support Chinese (and other) character sets. By default, we have not included Chinese support because the fonts are really big and would use too much storage on the SD card.

    If you need Chinese, please contact us and we will set up Chinese fonts in your Players.

    Eventually, we do plan to include support for all characters. We will be changing the ticker rendering code to support HTML, so all fonts will be eventually supported with the best possible way.

  8. Enable user-agent modification

    I'm writing a ddns javascript widget. It's working, but my ddns provider prefers that a custom user-agent header is sent with the http request.

    At present, changing this is denied by the browser. Could it be enabled, please?

  9. Ability to adjust the black gap time been slides.

    I find the black gap between videos or images is too short. I've been adding in 2 second black slides to help but it would be nice if we could customize the length of time between for the black gap instead of only having it preset.

    The duration of the black gap is not entirely under our control right now. Your request is reasonable though.

    We are planning a major internal change to the Player’s software that will allow us finer control of the playback procedure. I will leave this request open so that I can update it if we get any update from the dev team if it is feasible or not.

  10. Auto-import of UI JSON schema

    To simplify widget installation, it would be nice if the back-end could look for a json file (maybe ui.json or schema.json) in the widget's zip file, and import it automatically into the UI configuration area if it exists.

    Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).

    I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.

    Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.

  12. Monitor alerts via Pushover

    Would be awesome to be able to receive monitor status alerts via Pushover. Would be pretty simple to implement. User would enter their key and then they would receive notifications for all monitors on their account. This would be especially useful for me as a reseller.

    We plan to provide for more complex notifications settings. This will include mobile app notifications (not sure if it is going to be Pushover or our own app), custom email notifications, even SMS notifications.

  13. Playlist "currently playing" and countdown

    show screen number when playing items in playlist, now showing n of x , and possibly a timer couting down to next item.

    Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.

    We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.

    This feature request has several implications.

    First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).

    Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.

    So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.

  15. GPIO support

    We have Beamer they not hear on the CEC Command, they have only a Interface for Relais for commands, is there a way to use the gpio's to trigger 2 Relais on schedule start and at the end to off? At this time we have there 2 Raspberrys. One for Yodeck and one for a time based solution but in one device it would be great :D
    Best wishes

    One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.

    There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

    Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

  17. Default Slide Time Option

    Hey there,
    I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!

  18. Undo all changes since "Submit to Players?" was last clicked

    Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.

    Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."

    While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.

    Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.

  19. yodeck.com site status report - for known acute issues with the site

    Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.

    This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.

    Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

    Our encoding backend has been modified to provide all of this information to the Yodeck Portal. So, this will be provided soon.
