    Yodeck has limited support for interactivity. Right now, you can build and upload HTML5 apps as Widgets, but they must not be placed as overlays in order for them to be interactive. Same goes for Web Pages.

    An on-screen keyboard would be a nice addition. Given that this would require a touch screen, we would also have to implement an easy way to setup and calibrate touchscreens (can be done).

    We are marking this feature as Accepted and we will see down the road how things progress.

  2. Monitor alerts via Pushover

    Would be awesome to be able to receive monitor status alerts via Pushover. Would be pretty simple to implement. User would enter their key and then they would receive notifications for all monitors on their account. This would be especially useful for me as a reseller.

    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.

    If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)

    If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).

    Please provide more feedback on this.

  4. Support left-to-right scrolling for right-to-left languages

    Support right-to-left languages (like Arabic and Hebrew) for the RSS ticker

    This feature request has several implications.

    First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).

    Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.

    So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.

  6. Playlist "currently playing" and countdown

    show screen number when playing items in playlist, now showing n of x , and possibly a timer couting down to next item.

    Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.

    We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.

  7. GPIO support

    We have Beamer they not hear on the CEC Command, they have only a Interface for Relais for commands, is there a way to use the gpio's to trigger 2 Relais on schedule start and at the end to off? At this time we have there 2 Raspberrys. One for Yodeck and one for a time based solution but in one device it would be great :D
    Best wishes

  8. Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

    Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

    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.

  9. Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

    Building on : http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13294017-weekday-filter
    we would like it to be possible to specify a specific number of days for the "Every" field (recurrence).
    Many restaurants use a menu that cycles either weekly, biweekly, triweekly, etc. (In most cases here we have a tri-weekly menu rotation). What would be great in the scheduler is to be able to schedule a show “Every Monday” or to repeat “Every 3rd Monday” for example. Microsoft Task Scheduler in Windows is an example of how this would work.

    One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.

    There is also this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13087137-calendar-integration-ical-and-google-calendar-etc

    Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.

    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.

  12. Widget ideas

    Social Media Wall widgets for all the main social media sites will be key...even better, a social media feed aggregator!! I'd like a google calendar widget...a free form static box text widget would be great as well.

  13. API to connect to your subscription / Account / Management

    Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.

    Examples:

    Get - Get access to your account data & configurations. Connect to the API to get configurations & information of your players.

    POST - Send show commands to the API. to change between shows on different players.

    Longshot.. But would be nice :p

    Our whole backend (server) provides an RESTful HTTP API. This is currently used only by our UI, the User Interface that our users see on their screen.

    This API needs to be documented and polished up, but it is (more or less) already usable for special purposes. We will just provide you with a access token.

    We are planning to release a fully documented API spec within Q2-2017.

  14. Sound Check.

    Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.

    Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:

    1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
    2) normalize volume for all Media

    Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.

  15. Custom background for Schedule.

    When it changes from one show to another we go to black screen, it would be nice that the user can setup its own background instead of Black, could be colors or images.

  16. Default Slide Time Option

    Hey there,
    I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!

  18. Undo all changes since "Submit to Players?" was last clicked

    Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.

    Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."

    While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.

    Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.

    Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.

  20. yodeck.com site status report - for known acute issues with the site

    Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.

    This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.
