  1. Multiple WiFi Profiles

    It would be great if we could configure multiple wifi profiles on the device and set priority. This way it could connect to a "Primary WiFi" (ideally the customers) but if it can't and a tech is on site, have it connect to their hotspot as a backup and have it preprogrammed (I.e. if you can't connect to customer wifi, connect to a failover wifi profile we can configure through the portal.) Typically we provision the device before it goes out to customer this way in theory it's plug and play if they provide us with the correct wifi info…

  2. Media tags shared with monitors for conditional scheduling

    It will great to have monitors share tags assigned to all media assets. So each media can have one or more tags like "Global" and "SFO Office" and the option to choose partial or exact match.

    Then on your Monitors you select how the player will be tagged based on the available media tags.
    This allows to have a single playlist with content for multiple locations and only the monitors matching the tags assigned to the media will play that asset. I have seen this functionality on other signage platforms and the scheduling much more easier than having to manage…

  4. Content triggering

    Hello,

    It will be nice to be able to trigger content on demand via an external physical source like a USB button or via a UDP command form a mobile app. Features like play media on demand or be able to control playback features.

    We are planning to provide trigger support within 2020.

    We are now in the process of restructuring our rendering engine in order to allow several features to be implemented. One of these features is triggers. We are planning to initially support UDP, TCP/HTTP, GPIO events, and then support keyboard/mouse events.

    [Draft Specs follow:] Triggers will be available as a different menu item, in order to manage, set them up, test them, and so on. After setting them up, Users will be able to use them in Playlists, e.g. to skip a Media (or Subplaylist) entry, jump to specific Media (or Subplaylist) entry, and so on.

  5. Add more scheduling options

    Currently, the Monthly schedule option is numeric-based. I would like the ability to set a schedule based on the day of the week. (e.g. third Tuesday of the month)

  6. Bulk Upload - Set Default Time

    In the bulk image upload, I would like to be able to set a default time for all of the images. Ideally, I would like to have a bulk upload where you attach the files, it shows you the list of file names, and lets you select a default time for each before you click upload.

    We do have customers using touchscreens with Yodeck. We do plan to provide some better support for configuring the touchscreen.

    Touchscreens are usable with Widgets and Web Page, and we plan to expand support for navigating content (move to next, previous) and add support for an on-screen keyboard and navigation buttons for the web browser.

  8. enable hardware acceleration for the webkit browser

    we need a browser that supports hardware acceleration in order to have video or animation render in the browser smoothly. Currently even simple animation isn't smooth, and is really limiting what we can use Yodeck for. This is particularly problematic with custom widgets where our hands are tied as far as development goes because everything that moves is choppy. It looks like others have developed webkit based browsers that support hardware acceleration that could be similar to what we would need in yodeck? https://forums.resin.io/t/fullscreen-webkit-browser-with-hw-accelerated-css-webgl-and-html5-video-on-the-raspberrypi-3/741

  9. provide a quick mechanism to override the current schedule

    I am envisioning something like exists on a typical programmable thermostat, which allow you to override the schedule without actually editing the schedule. I am using the signs in a church, and most of the time the schedule works well, however if there is a special service day or time change, I'd like to be able to say "play show X now" - either forever or until a certain time. After I cancel the override, or the time is reached, then the normal schedule resumes.

    Currently the only way I seem to be able to do this is to modify…

    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with!

  11. Restrict Media to specific time

    I want to build a tag based playlist, where in the morning comes picture A and in the evening picture B. I can them both with "Tag Morning" and "Tag Evening". And build two playlists. But i think it can be easier to set a time or date range, like in the scheduler, right in the media settings. So that Picture A is only showed in the morning.
    Is this possible?

  13. make it easier to use OR operations when filtering media for a tag based playlist.

    Having to click Add More to in order to filter by OR is kind of confusing. The phrase "add more" doesn't seem to suggest that OR is an option and I didn't find anything on the support pages to suggest this is how I would filter with OR. I think it would be easier to navigate if you could just choose the operator AND/OR between tags in the list.

    In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

    We are considering to add this feature to Yodeck.

    Specifically, you will need to add a web camera or a Raspberry Pi Camera and use Google Coral, a USB AI module that does analytics and demographics of viewers. Total additional cost for hardware per screen would be something around $100. And you would get a) reports on number of viewers and demographics, b) triggers to change content based on demographic groups (e.g. ads targeting males over 50).

    We love this feature, but, to be honest, it is a bit down the road, likely for Q1-Q2 2020. Hope you stay on board to see it getting released!

  17. Add the ability to place shows in a playlist

    This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.

    For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.

    Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.

    We are making some changes in our playback engine that might make this feature possible.

    For sure, we are planning to provide an option to time-sync Playlists. This would allow you to create Playlists of Playlists, and sync the “master” Playlists. Combined with the special playlist item “Hide Playlist”, you could also change the layout.

    Of course, this is rather complex, but it will be possible.

    After this is possible, for providing a complete Show Sequence feature, it is more of a matter of strategy concerning simplicity of the platform; adding such a feature would complicate the user experience. But it is something that we will definitely consider.

    We do provide an option for a custom power script that allows you to override the way screen powering on/off works.

    For what else would that make sense? Please provide more context and use-cases so that we can investigate in detail and evaluate how we could do something like this.

    We already have support for Tag-based Playlist. It allows you to create a Playlist that pulls in all Media based on combinations of Media Tags. So, you can upload Media, tag them, and Playlists are updated automatically.

    The Tag-based Playlists feature is available under the “Pro” plan.

    We are thinking about using Folders in a similar way.
