  1. Improved Widgets & Widget Themes

    Improved Widgets.

    I'd like to see the widgets be developed with a little more depth. They are nice, but sometimes they don't really work the way one would expect them to. Not a deal-breaker, but it would be nice to have really polished options when it comes to widgets.

    Editing by Yodeck: Title changed to reflect our proposed solution: Widget Themes

    We are in the process of building an internal design team that will help with the look and feel of Widgets. We are planning to build something like “themes” so that Widgets can adhere to specific fonts, styles, etc, so that adding multiple Widgets will have some consistency.

  2. Playlist/Shows Transitions

    Moving from One Playlist to another in a schedule is not very clean right now. If the system can either pre-load the next playlist so that it behaves like a new clip, or hold a pre-defined slide so that the screen does not go black between changes.

    We have started working on this! Content transitions, either when pushing updated content or when changing content due to scheduling, will be dynamically loading, so content won’t go through that balck screen!

    Stay tuned!

  4. 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.

    We are considering to add this feature to Yodeck.

    Specifically, you will need to add a web camera or a Raspberry Pi Camera and use Google Coral, a USB AI module that does analytics and demographics of viewers. Total additional cost for hardware per screen would be something around $100. And you would get a) reports on number of viewers and demographics, b) triggers to change content based on demographic groups (e.g. ads targeting males over 50).

    We love this feature, but, to be honest, it is a bit down the road, likely for Q1-Q2 2020. Hope you stay on board to see it getting released!

    Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.

  7. Email Updates

    Would it be possible for you to email up and coming firmware updates (with changelog) and scheduled maintenance to the portal please?

    Concerning scheduled maintenance, we have a standard 6-week release cycle, so scheduled downtime is usually fixed. You can add our Yodeck calendar to your calendar using this link:

    https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=starttech.eu_i0cravf325nspu504bihnl6q68%40group.calendar.google.com

    We do post an in-app notice for downtime of the Yodeck portal usually 24-48 hours in advance. We are planning to create a Status Page as well that will include a detailed health report of our platform along with scheduled maintenance notices, suing statuspage.io, which provides something like this: https://status.dropbox.com/

    Also, we are planning to include some sort of in-app message center that will also include changelog notices and other important messages that users might need to read.

    Hopefully, both the Status Page and the in-app message centre will be available within this year.

  8. Playlist: import only the files that are not yet present, to avoid duplications.

    You can select all the files in a folder and import. But when you add a lot of files to a folder and you want to add only those in the playlist it becomes laborious to look for them one by one.

    We have released a new feature called Tag Playlists. You assign Media with Tags and then you can create dynamic Playlists using combinations of Media Tags. Then, when you upload a Media, you also add the required Tags, so that they get pulled into the Tag Playlists.

    That might work in your case.

    In the long run, we are also planning to provide Folder-based Playlists, so that all Media in the specific Folders are automatically included in a Playlist.

  9. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Length of Video Media

    Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.

    Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

    Our encoding backend has been modified to provide all of this information to the Yodeck Portal. So, this will be provided soon.

  14. Content Refresh

    Am new with Yodeck but I would like to see either faster loading of new/changed content over typical client wifi speeds OR some way to blank the screen while new imagery is loaded. My experience so far (limited I admit) leads me to think my shows are amateurish when I have to look at periods where things are sequentially being blacked out and sequentially replaced.Makes me think of the old days when things like this were really slow. Surely there is a better way in 2018.

    I guess you are talking about transition from one show to another. This will be significantly improve really soon. We are working on an improved version of the playback engine that will allow much faster transitions.

    Stay tuned to see it get released!

  15. A debug mode would be really useful

    I think it could be useful to be able to debug memory / CPU usage of the various widgets on-screen at a given time. Whether this was real-time on-screen, or periodically logged to file, I think it'd be very helpful in tracking down opportunities for performance optimisation.

  16. Auto-push when changes are released from the queue.

    Mark changes to be pushed when done rendering. It sometimes takes hours for changes to make it through the queue and be ready to push. I'd like an option to have changes automatically push when ready.

  17. Fallback radio stream !!!

    Is there a possibility for Fallback audio/radio stream?
    If it breaks the Internet connection or for some other reason terminates the connection with the radio streaming, is there a possibility to automatically broadcast audio files directly from the Yodeck player?

    Falling back to local content when streaming fails is reasonable. The same goes for both Video and Audio streaming.

    We will evaluate and revert, and if it is technically feasible, we will add it in our backlog soon.

  18. Please, allow me to switch off "Are you sure?"

    Please allow me to switch off "Are you sure you want to push all changes to players?"
    Yes, I'm sure but if I get it wrong, it's my problem or I can put it back easily. People mostly press Yes automatically anyway, so what's the point? It actually takes away from really important messages like "You are about to delete ALL data - are you sure?"
    Please give us a "Don't show this again".

    The “Push to Players?” button will soon be modified to show a pop-up window. In this window, you will be given the option to schedule the push; you choose if you want to push now, or do the push on a specific date/time.

    We will probably incorporate your suggestion in this new popup. In the meanwhile, we might also add it in the confirmation pop-up in a following release.

    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.

  20. Easier Workspace Management

    Workspaces are great for isolating who can access what, but they are tough to work with.

    It would be really nice if there was a “workspace view” that you could toggle to wherever there are workspace objects.

    For example – under VIDEO MEDIA, when you select “workspace view” it would list all the video files, one per row, but the columns become each workspace (that you have correct permissions for) with a set of radio buttons across the row
    .
    Then you could quickly change the workspace assignment of items – and could easily view what is in each workspace…

    It does make sense to have a “Workspace” column when you select “All Workspaces”. This way, you can easily see which Media belong to which Workspsace. However, the radio-button thing is not a good thing. Imagine we have customers with hundreds of Workspaces. Given a Media can only be part of a single Workspace, it does not make match sense to provide such a “grid”. Just a column with the Workspace name would be enough.

    I am marking this idea as accepted concerning the “Workspaces” column for all entity listings.
