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!Troy Humphries supported this idea ·Troy Humphries commented
I would love the ability to play music will it rotates between different signage and then if it is a video it switches to the video sound.
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.
