  1. Caching Web Pages on the Player

    Support caching on Web Pages - for pages that are relatively static it would be useful to cache them in the player instead of repeatedly going out to the internet for slowly changing content. I use the webpage feature to pull in a local weather feed - the page hoster noticed that I'm polling 500+ times/day - I'd really like to only look for an updated page every 30 minutes or so.

    This feature is already in our roadmap. It is closely related to the “Refresh” feature for Web Pages.

    We are planning to provide an option that will enable you not to “cache” the Web Page, but instead take a “screenshot” of the page, store it and show it for the duration specified by the user, and then refresh it.

    This will be provided soon, towards mid-2019.

  2. 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

  3. We would like to be able to synchronise various videos over different monitors.

    Allows "interaction" between different screens using different videos e.g. 2 people talking to each other from one screen to the next.

    We are planning to provide support for playback synchronization across Playlists within the same device and across Playlists on different devices. This will be provided as a toggle called “synced playback” on Playlists. It will use the current time to sync playback across all Playlists marked as synced.

    This will come towards the end of Q3-2019. In the meantime, we have a workaround that has the same effect with some restrictions and a bit weird setup. Reach out if you want to try it out.

    We apologize for the delay. We have been working on a Facebook Widget for quite sometime now, but it is quite challenging to get this working right. Hopefully, we will have it ready in the next couple of months.

    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.

  6. Queue system

    I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.
    A remote or button with +/- and show a number in the screen. As a system like Easy Turn or so.

  7. Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

    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.

  8. Show Preview

    Show preview capability would be an amazing help. Right now there's no way to see a show without pushing it to a real monitor.

    This feature has been the No.1 request for a long time. There technical reason that this has not been implemented yet, but we are working towards the right direction. Let me explain.

    First, we will provide a quick preview button right inside the Show editor. This button will allow you to push the current show to your test player(s) so that you can check how everything looks a) without saving the Show and b) without pushing to all affected Players. It should make it much easier to preview things fast. But, still, you need a Player to use for this. *We will add this to our Oct 26th release! Stay tuned!*

    Now, concerning the web-based preview, we are working on a Web-powered Yodeck Player. This Player will be the basis for building a preview through the browser. This is quite hard to implement. Really hard. We are working towards…

  9. 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.

  10. Container clip for random media

    It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
    The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
    Example:

    - Logo
    - General info
    - Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
    - Product clip
    - Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
    - ... and so on

    We are planning to provide a) sub-playlists b) random playback.

    Subplaylists will be used as items in regular Playlists. Both Playlists and SubPlaylists will have the option to be played back randomly. And when you will add SubPlaylists to a Playlist, you will have the option to say “Play 3 items from this SubPlaylist” or “Play 1 hour from this SubPlaylist”.

    That’s the design we currently have in mind, I think it is pretty close to final.

  11. 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.

  12. Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

    Building on : http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13294017-weekday-filter
    we would like it to be possible to specify a specific number of days for the "Every" field (recurrence).
    Many restaurants use a menu that cycles either weekly, biweekly, triweekly, etc. (In most cases here we have a tri-weekly menu rotation). What would be great in the scheduler is to be able to schedule a show “Every Monday” or to repeat “Every 3rd Monday” for example. Microsoft Task Scheduler in Windows is an example of how this would work.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. API to connect to your subscription / Account / Management

    Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.

    Examples:

    Get - Get access to your account data & configurations. Connect to the API to get configurations & information of your players.

    POST - Send show commands to the API. to change between shows on different players.

    Longshot.. But would be nice :p

    Our whole backend (server) provides an RESTful HTTP API. This is currently used only by our UI, the User Interface that our users see on their screen.

    This API needs to be documented and polished up, but it is (more or less) already usable for special purposes. We will just provide you with a access token.

    We are planning to release a fully documented API spec within Q2-2017.

    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.

    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.

  19. 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.

    Right now, you can refresh a web page by adding it multiple time in a Playlist. This way, the Web Page will get refreshed.

    Another way to do this now is through the Web Scripting engine.

    Both of these ways are no so practical, and definitely not obvious. So, we will be adding this option soon.
