We do plan to provide a Yodeck Player app for Android. As you may understand, this requires a lot of effort. So, it might take several months until it gets completed. We target the end of 2017 for a first version, but it may well be 2018 until it gets released.
I recently saw that NEC has a TV that supports the CM3. Maybe this is a path for integration?
Yes, we do plan to have a Widget marketplace. :-) It is great that you are interested in this, hope we have more Partners and people coming in and voting for this one!
Out of votes but yeah I would love to see this as well. I think the widgets are a powerful feature and it would be very helpful to collaborate and share with others.
We have created a script for the Scripting Engine that uses Google Calendar and removes excessive stuff, headers, footers, etc. We have been using it internally for our meeting room for 3-4 months now and it seems to work fine. We will be sharing that next week on a post.
Concerning an inherent calendar Widget, it would be difficult to provide it within Yodeck. But I guess that if we supported an ICS calendar, you could use Google calendar and that Widget could pull info from that. I think that would be sufficient, right?
I wanted to expand on my last comment... We've been using the third party plugin in WordPress along with another plugin that formats it for the screen from a competing digital signage company that shall remain nameless. I wanted to report that having put it in production for awhile it absolutely sucks. This is something that would absolutely be a great feature to include natively or via a widget if possible.
I'm out of votes right now but this would be a very welcome feature. Right now the way we do this is through WordPress and a third party plugin that formats the calendar. It's not pretty. Ideally it would be great to pull this directly from Google Calendar and have it display. Can you guys please post your script as an example? Thanks!
We plan to provide for more complex notifications settings. This will include mobile app notifications (not sure if it is going to be Pushover or our own app), custom email notifications, even SMS notifications.
A native app would be great but that's going to take time. SMS is a PIA and cumbersome and it has an incurred cost. Having everything all neatly organized in Pushover (or a Yodeck app) would make for a much cleaner experience because then you can individually clear alerts (or all alerts) essentially using it as a checklist for what to investigate. Don't forget to make this reseller friendly (we need to know what's going on at customer sites!)
Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.
In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?
If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.
What would be cool is if there was some sort of HTTP API that you could remotely trigger a show to temporarily override the currently playing show. For example, at our bar customers, we have sound effects boards configured so that when there is a hockey game score, they press a button and it triggers a sound effect (horn and 20sec of music) and while that sound is playing we turn a red dome light on via a WeMo switch. When the song is done playing it sends an off command to the WeMo switch. What would be cool is to have a predefined show with a video in it that had some sort of animation that said "GOAL!!!" or something like that and have it triggered at the same time during song play then return to scheduled show when the "off" command is sent. This would probably be best to have an HTTP API running on the media player itself with a static assigned IP that could be called locally.
Public Google calendar URLs work with the Yodeck Web Pages.
Supporting ICS files/URLs natively on Yodeck (and not being displayed from an online service through a Web Page) is a whole different thing. This would require a Widget and some serious development. We are not declining the feature, to see how much supporters it will have, but overall, it is quite a workload. We will consider it though.
