We are considering this feature as a premium Widget in Yodeck. As soon as we have feedback, we will update this suggestion.
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 :)
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.
Tomorrow, we are releasing Chrome support for Custom Widgets. Would that work for you?
Nevertheless, this is a valid request to be considered.
I'm looking forward to trying it. Chrome generally blocks it though - you get 'Refused to set unsafe header "User-Agent"'.
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!
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.Iain supported this idea ·
