  1. Add the ability to place shows in a playlist

    This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.

    For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.

    Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.

    Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote and provide feedback!

    This feature is something definitely needed, we 100% get that. As we speak, we are creating a huge library of Layout Templates that will allow most of you to use or customize a large number of Layouts, thus making this feature more important than ever! So, this is definitely coming, period.

    We have created the technical roadmap and have started planning on that. The most tricky thing is how to provide this (definitely required) functionality without making the user experience convoluted and confuse newcomers. There are several ideas on the table; providing for “Slides” in Layouts, adding a new “Layout Sequence” menu right between Layouts and Schedules, or just allowing Layouts to be added to existing Playlists. We need to evaluation options when it comes to User Experience and decide. Feel free to provide feedback on that.

    Overall,…

  2. Provide transition effects

    Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

    Finally, the time has come to start working on this looooong requested feature!

    We have initiated work to support transitions between images. We know that this is an important feature for all of you receiving this message, so we want to provide as much insight as possible.

    Our work is targeting to provide beautiful and butter-smooth transitions, beside standard stuff like cross-fade, fade-through-black. If you are interested to test a beta when it is available, please reach out!

    After we release that, we will then start investigating Video transitions as well, so that you can have transitions between Video and Images. But this is a whole new chapter. We will likely focus this suggestion exclusively on image-to-image transition.

    We know that most of you have been waiting for this for quite some time. The Yodeck team has been growing and we are pumping up the engineering team in 2021 to…

  3. Create a widget store

    I've developed a couple of widgets, and more will no doubt follow. It would be great to have somewhere to share them - either free or for a nominal charge, like the appstores for iPhone/android/the other one.

  4. Live preview needed

    Live preview of what is currently showing on a given monitor would be very helpful (not random screenshots). Otherwise one must physically go to the monitor to see what is showing/how widgets are rendering.

  5. Office 365 - Integration

    Should be nice to have integration with O365 (Calendar, Sway, Stream..) too and not only capability vs. Google Suite.

  6. Schedule every 'x' minutes

    Can you add the options to schedule a show every: hour, quarter and/or every ... minutes.

    We like to show a standard show which will be overruled by a dedicated show every ´x´ minutes. Now we can't use the scheduler for that.

    Thanks in advance.

  7. Change Input on Schedule

    Add the ability to set the input of the TV via CEC with an existing schedule. For example, when I start content (turn the TV on), reset the input of the TV to a specific HDMI input.

    We will be creating a special Widget that will allow you to switch to specific HDMI inputs, or switch to the Live TV. All of this will happen through the HDMI cable using the HDMI-CEC protocol.

    DISCLAIMER: This might not work with all screen brands. We will be performing tests to let our Users know some brands that work with this, but we can’t really test all brands out there.

    In order to further improve compatibility, this Widget will also allow you to setup custom HDMI-CEC commands, so that you can control your TV.

    Since this feature will be a Widget, it means that you will be able to add it to a Playlist (e.g. playback a 20" video and then switch to Live TV, and loop this), or add it to a schedule to have timed changes.

  8. Add support for streaming video using NDI.

    NDI is the new standard for high def, low latency streaming video in broadcasting and the entertainement industry. More information at https://ndi.tv/about-ndi/

    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets; social widgets to start with!

  10. 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.

  11. Content triggering

    Hello,

    It will be nice to be able to trigger content on demand via an external physical source like a USB button or via a UDP command form a mobile app. Features like play media on demand or be able to control playback features.

    We are planning to provide trigger support within 2020.

    We are now in the process of restructuring our rendering engine in order to allow several features to be implemented. One of these features is triggers. We are planning to initially support UDP, TCP/HTTP, GPIO events, and then support keyboard/mouse events.

    [Draft Specs follow:] Triggers will be available as a different menu item, in order to manage, set them up, test them, and so on. After setting them up, Users will be able to use them in Playlists, e.g. to skip a Media (or Subplaylist) entry, jump to specific Media (or Subplaylist) entry, and so on.

    We do have customers using touchscreens with Yodeck. We do plan to provide some better support for configuring the touchscreen.

    Touchscreens are usable with Widgets and Web Page, and we plan to expand support for navigating content (move to next, previous) and add support for an on-screen keyboard and navigation buttons for the web browser.

  13. Live Player Simulator for config testing

    Virtual player within the configuration webpage so that we can test/see what the results should be before pushing to a live player. Would also be great to be able to create virtual video wall functionality, configure everything as we need. Then we could swap out the virtual players for real players easily for a live implementation.

    We apologize for the delay. We have been working on a Facebook Widget for quite sometime now, but it is quite challenging to get this working right. Hopefully, we will have it ready in the next couple of months.

  15. Please add a National Weather Service Emergency Alert Widget that can be placed on all shows and will remain hidden unless EAS ACTIVATION

    Please add a National Weather Service Emergency Alert WIdget that can be placed on all shows and will remain hidden unless the EAS has been activated for Flood warnings, Severe weather warnings and watches in the area of the YoDeck System based on IP or GPS

  16. Support for pushing content from 0365 ( stream, Sharepoint list, Calendar, Planner)

    Office 365 is a source of most of our data, it would be great to be able to connect a data source and display in a template either a video from Stream or a planner or selected fields form a SharePoint list. Need a way to use a service account to connect to O365 and then companies could pull from libraries and have their own approval processes for slides and content upload.

  17. Can we play a video clip with a specific time (start, end)?

    For example: a video clip starts at 00:00 and ends at 10:15.
    Can Yodeck play that video clip only from 01:10 to 06:15?

    Update: we already support Dropbox for automatically picking up Media files. More details here: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815/suggestions/38666818

    While we started working on the Google Drive integration a couple of months back, it turned out to be quite convoluted, as it required a special authorization from Google that was too complicated to get at this point. Dropbox is much easier to provide, so we did that first (see the link above).

    We are planning to resume work for Google Drive support towards Q1-Q2 2021.

  20. 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.
