  1. Restrict media to player as relevant

    My impression is that all media is pushed to all players. My most dynamic player may be overloading other players within my account that have a much simpler scope.

    One player is a communication piece with multi media content. Other players are simple static images (digital menus.) Why push all the multimedia on to these simple scope devices?

    • Rotate Content on the Show building

      It will be nice to rotate the frames on the design of the show, not only horizontal or Vertical.

      • Show Priority for Emergency Messages.

        Creating priority levels for shows. This way if you are using the screens in a building and a fire alarm sounds, you can have a show setup for fire alarms (with instructions) that you can quickly login, trigger it to play and once finished can have it revert back to your main screen.

        • Notification of Start/Expiry dates for Media

          On the playlist it would be useful to have some sort of notification of the dates set for each media, i.e date due to start playing and date due to end

            • Restrict Media to specific time

              I want to build a tag based playlist, where in the morning comes picture A and in the evening picture B. I can them both with "Tag Morning" and "Tag Evening". And build two playlists. But i think it can be easier to set a time or date range, like in the scheduler, right in the media settings. So that Picture A is only showed in the morning.
              Is this possible?

              • 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!

                • User Manuals based on user permissions

                  Have a link on the users dashboard for the Yodeck user manual, but have it only display information relevant to the users permissions.

                  We are on the enterprise plan with multiple users with different permissions, that have no idea how to use yodeck. I am having to go through and copy all the links in the user manual that are only relevant to their permissions....essentially making a tailored user manual for everyone which gets pretty tedious.

                  • Pick one Element with Tag

                    When I build a Playlist, I need the function:
                    Just pic one element with the tag "example"

                    I don't want to have a tag based playlist inside a playlist, just a random element from one tag.

                    It would be great

                        We already have support for Tag-based Playlist. It allows you to create a Playlist that pulls in all Media based on combinations of Media Tags. So, you can upload Media, tag them, and Playlists are updated automatically.

                        The Tag-based Playlists feature is available under the “Pro” plan.

                        We are thinking about using Folders in a similar way.

                      • Bulk Upload - Set Default Time

                        In the bulk image upload, I would like to be able to set a default time for all of the images. Ideally, I would like to have a bulk upload where you attach the files, it shows you the list of file names, and lets you select a default time for each before you click upload.

                            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.

                              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.

                                  • 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 should have the Status of the content downloading to the player, Now its highly uncertain to know when it can happen.

                                          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.
