  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. Playlist/Shows Transitions

    Moving from One Playlist to another in a schedule is not very clean right now. If the system can either pre-load the next playlist so that it behaves like a new clip, or hold a pre-defined slide so that the screen does not go black between changes.

    We do plan to improve on the time it takes to switch from one Show to the next. Doing a preload on a Show-level, has some implications, but it could work.

    In the mean time, you might be served by this feature:

    http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/16357123-custom-background-for-schedule

    Finally, due to the implementation, providing for smooth Shows transition would require this feature implemented first:

    https://yodeck.uservoice.com/admin/forums/301815-general/suggestions/16208410-master-playlists-that-can-play-multiple-sub-playli

    We are going to mark this as Accepted, but it will take some time till you see it released.

  4. Widget ideas

    Social Media Wall widgets for all the main social media sites will be key...even better, a social media feed aggregator!! I'd like a google calendar widget...a free form static box text widget would be great as well.

    Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.

    In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?

    If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.

  6. 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

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

    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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Screenshot also in monitor listview

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

  18. Add support for Yodeck retrieving a media file from a URL instead of having to download and upload to Yodeck

    It would be great to have an option for providing an image file or a video file from a URL instead of uploading to Yodeck. Files would still be stored on Yodeck servers, but the user won't have to download the media and upload it to Yodeck servers.
