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.32 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?7 votes
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.
Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.
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.
- General info
- Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
- Product clip
- Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
- ... and so on19 votes
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.
Drag and drop content upload. Better then trawling through files and folders.6 votes
We already had this feature, but it did not work correctly in some browsers.
We will be implementing it in the near future.
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.3 votes
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.
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!3 votes
You can change to “Folder View” and massively change duration for all your slides.
But yes, this could be useful as an option for each User.
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."4 votes
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.
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.7 votes
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.
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.9 votes
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.
Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.5 votes
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.
add gps usb to the raspi and to show the gps location on a map on the screen, that help in transportation.7 votes
It would be really interesting to provide this feature. We will look into it and let you know.
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".15 votes
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.
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.38 votes
This is indeed in our plans. We will add support for recurrence in hours and minutes. Thank you for your suggestion!
Multiple video areas13 votes
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.
Provide some premade scrolling footer content -
Weather - enter ZipCode;
Stock - select up to x stock symbols;
Latest News (like Fox News Channel);
Airport info;5 votes
The ticker (scrolling text) Widget will support any RSS feed. We will be including a menu with many popular RSS feeds.
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.9 votes
Since SD storage is limited, it would be great to add support for expanding storage through USB drives6 votes
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 reports from players, including what is being played right now, how much storage is available, what are the network configurations currently, etc1 vote
We ahve partially completed this request. IT still remains to provide feedback on what is currently being played.
