      In fact, you can do this all on the Yodeck played using a widget and a keyboard (I used a small bluetooth one with a built-in trackpad).

      It seems to need to be the first (or possibly only) widget loaded (probably so it gets input focus - I don't know if there's a way to force this to happen, but you can use the mouse to click the right widget if you need to).

      Anyway, it works as a proof-of-concept. Let me know if you'd like any more info :)

      Hi,

      I'm not familiar with Easy Turn, but if the queue management system presented queue information in some kind of format (XML for example), it would be fairly easy to write a widget that requested this and formatted it to display in a widget.

      Failing that, another Pi acting as a webserver could have a button connected (maybe a remote powerpoint 'clicker') that incremented the current number, which could then be picked up by the Yodeck player (or directly attached to it).

        Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).

        I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.

          Hi,

          I'm looking forward to trying it. Chrome generally blocks it though - you get 'Refused to set unsafe header "User-Agent"'.

          You can set a custom user agent in the Chrome dev tools, but I don't know if it's possible to enable javascript to set it in code.

            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.

              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!

                This feature has been the No.1 request for a long time. There technical reason that this has not been implemented yet, but we are working towards the right direction. Let me explain.

                First, we will provide a quick preview button right inside the Show editor. This button will allow you to push the current show to your test player(s) so that you can check how everything looks a) without saving the Show and b) without pushing to all affected Players. It should make it much easier to preview things fast. But, still, you need a Player to use for this. *We will add this to our Oct 26th release! Stay tuned!*

                Now, concerning the web-based preview, we are working on a Web-powered Yodeck Player. This Player will be the basis for building a preview through the browser. This is quite hard to implement. Really hard. We are working towards…
