      Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:

      1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
      2) normalize volume for all Media

      Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.

        Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.

      • Default Slide Time Option

        Hey there,
        I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!

        • 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?

            We will be releasing a full-fledged Weather widget soon.

            In the mean time, you can now find a (local only) weather Widget based on the web widget provided by Accuweather.com. This is available on the production site right now.

            Overall, we are planning to provide a better Weather Widget, that will perform much better, work offline, show forecasts, etc, so we will not be closing this idea yet.

          • Undo all changes since "Submit to Players?" was last clicked

            Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.

            Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."

              While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.

              Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.

            • Face Book videos?

              Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.

                  Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) has been coming up in requests. This requires a new Widget and some serious development.

                  We are growing the team, and new team members coming on board will start working on new Widgets, with focus on the main social widgets and this calendar widget. These two are the most requested features so far.

                  Stay tuned!

                • yodeck.com site status report - for known acute issues with the site

                  Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.

                  This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.

                    This would be indeed a great addition. Currently, we have several different subsystems, so it would be good to have an overview is something is wrong or not. We will definitely need to add service status reporting, as well as maintenance/updates schedule.

                  • Random photo slideshow

                    Ability to have a slide show of random photos from zzz folder and play for xxx minutes.
                    This would allow me to play a video or two - then some photos - then back to the videos... Then show some more of the random photos.

                      We are considering adding an option to play a Playlist randomly. But this is half the story of what you described.

                      The other thing that you are implying is playing multiple Playlists per region. So, you can have some photos shown randomly, and then show a video. We are still designing a way to achieve that gracefully. There are three options that this could be implemented:

                      - Support Playlists of Playlists
                      - Support Playlists of Shows
                      - Support Multiple Playlists per region in a Show

                      We have not finalized the design on how this will be implemented.

                    • Length of Video Media

                      Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.

                        Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

                        Our encoding backend has been modified to provide all of this information to the Yodeck Portal. So, this will be provided soon.

                        • Allow starting a show based on an event

                          Would like to have a display set up in a waiting room playing a standard general show. But, when a new client arrives would like to "push a button" and have a more detailed show played. It could simply be a predefined named show and GPIO pin to initiate it. Schedule could be set to "Manual".

                            We are looking into how we could support event-driven Show changes within the current user interface. We want to keep things simple, so this will not be easy. Most probably, we will expand the new entry form in the Schedules section to provide event checks (besides time frames).

                            For sure, we will work on event-triggered Show changes after a) we minimize the time required to change Shows, and b) we improve the user interface in the Schedules section to make it more intuitive. These two items are required to make sure that this new feature improves Yodeck and does not degrade overall user experience.

                          • Schedule every 'x' minutes

                            Can you add the options to schedule a show every: hour, quarter and/or every ... minutes.

                            We like to show a standard show which will be overruled by a dedicated show every ´x´ minutes. Now we can't use the scheduler for that.

                            Thanks in advance.

                                  This is due to a restriction impose by the Raspberry Pi hardware. We plan to allow soon using at least two videos. We are also conducting tests with Raspberry Pi 3 to establish the best possible solution.

                                  We are working towards a solution that might allow 2 videos running concurrently, provided that the bitrates and resolutions are within range.

                                  Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

                                    We will be implementing OpenGL-based image playback, and we will be implementing transition options.

                                    Minimum transition that will be provided is cross-fading and fade-through-black or white. Hopefully, most of the transitions here will work: http://transitions.glsl.io/ if they do, it will be really awesome.

                                    This feature has been delayed. We first need to provide our new rendering engine that will allow to utilize the GPU of the Player. The new rendering engine release is now on beta. After we have the new rendering engine tested and working well, and after we have released it on our standard site, then we will start working on the transitions. Generally, the whole transitions mechanisms will need change, in order to provide better Playlist management internally during Playback. So, transition effects might take a while to arrive.

                                    In the mean time, we will be providing a HTML-based Widget, providing slide and cross-fade transitions with…

                                    • Add support for Yodeck retrieving a media file from a URL instead of having to download and upload to Yodeck

                                      It would be great to have an option for providing an image file or a video file from a URL instead of uploading to Yodeck. Files would still be stored on Yodeck servers, but the user won't have to download the media and upload it to Yodeck servers.

                                        Since SD storage is limited, it would be great to add support for expanding storage through USB drives

                                          Support and requests for this feature is quite low, so we are freezing it for now… most users are ok with a standard 8GB SD card, while they can also get a 32GB card with lots of space.

                                        • Add multi-thumbnail view for showing thumbnails from all screens

                                          An overall dashboard showing all thumbnails from all devices would be great. It would provide a quick view if devices show what they are supposed to show.
