    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.

    • Display a conference schedule.

      Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?

        One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.

        There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

        Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

      • 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.

          • Sound Check.

            Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.

              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.

            • 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!

              • 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.

                    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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Allow for expanding Player available storage through USB flash drives

                                      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.
