        Could you please provide more information? What exactly are you trying to achieve?

        You can stream online the output of a Player, using an HDMI streamer and YouTube Live. Is this what you need?

        • 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.

              We have started working on a Facebook Widget, but the Facebook approval process is quite cumbersome. We are working on it and soon it will be made available.

            • Please, allow me to switch off "Are you sure?"

              Please allow me to switch off "Are you sure you want to push all changes to players?"
              Yes, I'm sure but if I get it wrong, it's my problem or I can put it back easily. People mostly press Yes automatically anyway, so what's the point? It actually takes away from really important messages like "You are about to delete ALL data - are you sure?"
              Please give us a "Don't show this again".

                The “Push to Players?” button will soon be modified to show a pop-up window. In this window, you will be given the option to schedule the push; you choose if you want to push now, or do the push on a specific date/time.

                We will probably incorporate your suggestion in this new popup. In the meanwhile, we might also add it in the confirmation pop-up in a following release.

              • Playlist section folder view scrolling

                When in playlist section and in folder view would it be possible to get the playlist box to scroll independently of the page. It would be a lot easier to drag media into the correct playlist position without whole page scrolling. When Whole page scrolls its annoying as you have to rescroll back up the page to select the next item to insert into playlist

                    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.

                        There are a lot of ideas for Widgets. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to create all of the Widgets that our customers need. That is why we provide the ability to create your own Custom Widget:

                        https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/Custom+Widget+Developer%27s+Guide

                        The Widget you are proposing can be easily created. Within the Widget UI, you would enter the name and birthday of each employee and the Widget would display it easily.

                        Reach out if you need help with the development. We are marking this as “under review” only to keep this request and see if it can get more traction down the road.

                      • Info for used media in playlist

                        It would be great to see what media are being used in the playlist. View the upload date and if it is in use, but in the playlist section.

                          • 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?

                                We plan to add support for other scrolling Widgets, like feeds and more. We also plan to provide access to this through HTML5.

                                Please post comments with any ideas that you have.

                              • 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.

                                  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.

                                      • 4K support (through Tinker Board)

                                        Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
                                        Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.

                                          Our software fully supports 4K. The problem is with our hardware platform, the Raspberry Pi.

                                          The Pi does not support 4K resolution out of the box. We have managed to push it to use 4K on Samsung TVs (check this link: http://support.yodeck.com/knowledgebase/articles/891513-changing-the-screen-resolution)

                                          The problem is that 4K content is really heavy. The Pi also does not support 4K video decoding. That is why we are planning to support the Asus Tinker Board. Here is our relevant blog post: https://www.yodeck.com/news/asus-tinker-board-digital-signage/

                                          With the Tinker Board, we might be able to provide an option that will fully support 4K resolution and 4K video decoding. Also, the Tinker board is faster and has 2GB of RAM, which would allow for more complex usage scenarios. We are partnering up with Asus to see how we could work on this to get it delivered.

                                          Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

                                            We do plan to provide a Yodeck Player app for Android. As you may understand, this requires a lot of effort. So, it might take several months until it gets completed. We target the end of 2017 for a first version, but it may well be 2018 until it gets released.
