  1. 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.

        • Auto-import of UI JSON schema

          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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                        If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)

                        If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).

                        Please provide more feedback on this.

                            Makes perfect sense, we already had it in our backlog internally. Probably, you will be able to set an uploaded image or a Widget as the “Error Page”.

                          • 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.

                                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.

                                  Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.

                                  We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.

                                    Your feedback is valid. I do not know if the proposed layout is the best possible. We will have to see when we make some changes to the UI (for sure, within the next 2 months)

                                      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.

                                        This feature request has several implications.

                                        First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).

                                        Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.

                                        So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.

                                      • 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

                                            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.
