      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.

      It would be great and very helpful if Yodeck able to provide live chat support.

        In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

          Tag-based Playlists will perform a shuffle before sending out the Playlist.

          In any case, we will be adding support for Random Playback really soon, right after our new playback engine is ready.

          • 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.

            • Change show layout on a fly

              The possibility to change, in a show, the layout of the show itself. For example I use a 3 zone layout and I want to use after a while in the same show a 1 zone layout showing another playlist. I imagine an invisible layer on the top of the main 3 zone layout showed after a period of time or a specific different layout organization.

              • Media tags shared with monitors for conditional scheduling

                It will great to have monitors share tags assigned to all media assets. So each media can have one or more tags like "Global" and "SFO Office" and the option to choose partial or exact match.

                Then on your Monitors you select how the player will be tagged based on the available media tags.
                This allows to have a single playlist with content for multiple locations and only the monitors matching the tags assigned to the media will play that asset. I have seen this functionality on other signage platforms and the scheduling much more easier than having to manage…

                  • 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.

                    • 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.
                        -…

                          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.

                          Stay tuned!

                            We plan to provide a status feedback from the device to the dashboard, so that you know the exact state that the Player is in (e.g. Downloading, Configuring, etc). This would also confirm that an online Player indeed has the latest content received (e.g. show something like “Pending…” vs “OK” for being up-to-date).

                            These are just thought, wording might be different, but the feature is definitely coming. Stay tuned!

                                  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.

                                • Object Borders

                                  It would be nice to be able to add a border to whatever you place in the show and have it resize with the window. I've managed to create some borders in another program, but am having a time trying to get the border placement to correctly match the window placement. Being able to change the line thickness of the border and color as well as perhaps add rounded corners would be a plus.

                                      We now have a new way to communicate with deployed Players. It allows for much more frequent updates.

                                      For the status info, we are planning to do several improvements:

                                      - Update the status info as soon as you enter the Monitor details section.
                                      - Keep full historical data on Monitor status info and show graphs and history (e.g. temperature over time, or graph showing online/offline status)
                                      - Show the Player status (downloading, playback, updating, etc) almost in real-time

                                      These will probably this fall. Stay tuned!

                                    • HDMI switch to TV tuner.

                                      Hello.

                                      I use your Yodeck display system for my clients.
                                      I have a particular request.

                                      I would like to switch a Samsung TV in HDMI1 (yodeck) then on the tuner (broadcast of a news channel) then HDMI1 and so on.

                                      Do you have a solution?

                                        This is very interesting, and we will be able to support it when we release native Widgets.

                                        Right now, Widgets (and Custom Widgets) are HTML5-based (except the RSS ticker). So, it is not possible to easily run native code that will interact with the system. We are planning to support native Widgets that will be able to run any code. Using that, we will be able to provide a Widgets that instructs the TV to turn back to the tuner, and then back to the HDMI that the Yodeck Player is connected to.

                                        I am leaving it under review, since this is not finalized yet. This needs some hard work to be done!

                                      • Adding add/remove buttons to the top of the media pages.

                                        Instead of having to scroll down the page to add media to any category, like images, it would be convenient to have the buttons at the top of the page as well.

                                        • 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.
