  1. Weather Widget

    I suggest a simple weather widget that could be used on our displays. Nothing fancy - just the current weather and perhaps the next 5 days?

    Our current Weather Widget is functional, but not the best option. We planning to design a functional and great-looking Weather Widget within the next few months.

    On a side note, we are planning to create Widget Themes, so that you can add Widgets to your screen and have a coherent and great looking result by selecting a Theme defining colors, fonts, and style.

  2. On screen key board widget with button to hide and open

    Onscreen keyboard widget to interact with items on you display

    Yodeck has limited support for interactivity. Right now, you can build and upload HTML5 apps as Widgets, but they must not be placed as overlays in order for them to be interactive. Same goes for Web Pages.

    An on-screen keyboard would be a nice addition. Given that this would require a touch screen, we would also have to implement an easy way to setup and calibrate touchscreens (can be done).

    We are marking this feature as Accepted and we will see down the road how things progress.

  3. Custom background for Schedule.

    When it changes from one show to another we go to black screen, it would be nice that the user can setup its own background instead of Black, could be colors or images.

    Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) has been coming up in requests. This requires a new Widget and some serious development.

    We are growing the team, and new team members coming on board will start working on new Widgets, with focus on the main social widgets and this calendar widget. These two are the most requested features so far.

    Stay tuned!

  5. Provide transition effects

    Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

    We will be implementing OpenGL-based image playback, and we will be implementing transition options.

    Minimum transition that will be provided is cross-fading and fade-through-black or white. Hopefully, most of the transitions here will work: transitions.glsl.io if they do, it will be really awesome.

    This feature has been delayed. We first need to provide our new rendering engine that will allow to utilize the GPU of the Player. The new rendering engine release is now on beta. After we have the new rendering engine tested and working well, and after we have released it on our standard site, then we will start working on the transitions. Generally, the whole transitions mechanisms will need change, in order to provide better Playlist management internally during Playback. So, transition effects might take a while to arrive.

    In the mean time, we will be providing a HTML-based Widget, providing slide and cross-fade transitions with…

  6. Sound Check.

    Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.

    Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:

    1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
    2) normalize volume for all Media

    Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.

  7. Add multiple youtube links at same time or the capacity to put youtube channels

    Capacity to add multiple links of youtube at once and/ or use youtube channels with list of videos

    Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.

  8. Schedule every 'x' minutes

    Can you add the options to schedule a show every: hour, quarter and/or every ... minutes.

    We like to show a standard show which will be overruled by a dedicated show every ´x´ minutes. Now we can't use the scheduler for that.

    Thanks in advance.

  9. Face Book videos?

    Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow starting a show based on an event

    Would like to have a display set up in a waiting room playing a standard general show. But, when a new client arrives would like to "push a button" and have a more detailed show played. It could simply be a predefined named show and GPIO pin to initiate it. Schedule could be set to "Manual".

    This is due to a restriction impose by the Raspberry Pi hardware. We plan to allow soon using at least two videos. We are also conducting tests with Raspberry Pi 3 to establish the best possible solution.

    We are working towards a solution that might allow 2 videos running concurrently, provided that the bitrates and resolutions are within range.

  13. Screenshot also in monitor listview

    idea: if you have multiple monitors, it would be great to see the last screenshot in the Monitorslist

  14. Add multi-thumbnail view for showing thumbnails from all screens

    An overall dashboard showing all thumbnails from all devices would be great. It would provide a quick view if devices show what they are supposed to show.

  16. Content Refresh

    Am new with Yodeck but I would like to see either faster loading of new/changed content over typical client wifi speeds OR some way to blank the screen while new imagery is loaded. My experience so far (limited I admit) leads me to think my shows are amateurish when I have to look at periods where things are sequentially being blacked out and sequentially replaced.Makes me think of the old days when things like this were really slow. Surely there is a better way in 2018.

    I guess you are talking about transition from one show to another. This will be significantly improve really soon. We are working on an improved version of the playback engine that will allow much faster transitions.

    Stay tuned to see it get released!

    We supported x86 until Jan 2017. Adoption was really, really low, since a) we provide the Player for free to direct customers, and b) using the Raspberry Pi saves you so much on electricity, recovering the cost of the RPi within a couple of years.

    We are planning to develop soon an HTML5-based player, so this could be easily wrapped to work on x86 hardware.

    Stay tuned for updates.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
    -…

  20. 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.
