      We will be providing 2 distinct features for accommodating this need:

      First, we will allow paid accounts to use an extra (free) test Monitor. This test monitor will regularly show an overlay of the Yodeck logo on top of content, so it will not be suitable to be used as public display. It will be used solely for testing out changes to Monitors before pushing.

      Then, we will be developing a full-fledge Web Player. This Web Player will have a unique URL which you will be able to open up on any browser. From that point on, you will be able to manage content displayed as with any other Pi-based Player. We will then use this Player to also display a one-time preview of the Show.

      Hope this works for all of you guys. Please be kind enough to leave a comment if you think otherwise.

        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! So, a Twitter Widget is definitely on our list.

        Stay tuned!

          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.

            We will provide:

            1) audio files you upload, as a new Media type
            2) you will be able to use audio files within regular Playlists – when an audio asset is used within your Show (added on the Show layout editor), the Playlist will be visually hidden
            3) in the Show editor, there will be 1 additional field that will allow you to specify a “use-audio-only” Playlist — all Media in this Playlist (including video files, audio files, web pages with audio) will not appear on screen, so you will only get the audio track from these
            4) if the “use-audio-only” field is used, then all Media added normally in the Show layout editor will be muted

            This way, you will be able to split audio and video content effectively!

            This feature is planned for the September 10th-14th release week. Stay tuned!
