  1. 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.

    All users now have beautiful and butter-smooth image-to-image transitions! Transitions work amazingly well in 1080p, but also work fine in 4K. Enjoy!

    We will start investigating Video transitions as well down the road, so that you can have transitions between Video and Images. But this is a whole new chapter!

  2. Show Preview

    Show preview capability would be an amazing help. Right now there's no way to see a show without pushing it to a real monitor.

    At last, the Show Preview is available on our production site! You can now a) see a preview version of Widgets working right inside the Show Editor, b) see how transparency looks like with Images and Widgets, c) preview/edit the Show in fullscreen mode! All these three changes provide for a much easier editing/previewing experience!

    Within the next couple of months, we investigate expanding it to also provide some form of Video/Playlist playback in the browser. Either we do implement this final step or not, this will be publicly available on our next release scheduled for September 27th!

  3. 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.

    We now provide the ability to Preview a Layout or a Playlist right inside your Yodeck account, without having a device!

    Most of the Media types will work out of the box (Videos, Images, texts, shapes, and more), while some types of content will be emulated in order to display how the content will look like when shown on a screen! Web Pages might not work, but this is something we are working on and eventually will come! Enjoy!

  4. Weather Widget

    I suggest a simple weather widget that could be used on our displays. Nothing fancy - just the current weather and perhaps the next 5 days?

    Since our previous release, we have made our new Weather Widgets available! The design is great, and we provide many options to customize it to your liking! And if you are up to it, you can use our Widget source code and API to create your very own Custom Weather Widget!

  6. Container clip for random media

    It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
    The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
    Example:

    • Logo
    • General info
    • Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
    • Product clip
    • Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
    • ... and so on

    Random Playlist and Sub-Playlist Restrictions are here!

    You can now set Random Playback for any Playlist; just go into the Playlist detail and active the Random toggle. Then, each Playlist will be played back in random order, making sure that all items are played at least once on every Playlist iteration.

    We also released Restrictions for Sub-Playlists. When you add a Playlist as an item in another Playlist, then a “Options” button appears. Click it will allow you set the Max-Time and/or Max-Items. The first will define the total Playback time allow for each iteration of that Sub-Playlist, while the second will restrict the number of items played back. When using any of the two options and a Playlist is interrupted, the next playback of the Playlist will be picked up from the next item.

    All three can be combined to have the effect described by the original poster of…

    We have released support for audio assets! Here are the details:

    1) you can upload audio files as a new Media type
    2) you can use audio files within regular Playlists – when an audio asset is played back within your Show (added on the Show layout editor) nothing will show up on your screen (just like using the “Empty” special item)
    3) there is an additional field just below the Show editor that allows you to specify a “Background Audio” 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. If tyou use this field, 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! Check out more in our announcement: https://www.yodeck.com/news/software-update-audio-files/

  8. RSS feeds and tickers

    The RSS ticker is now available on our production site! Go ahead and check it out!

    The ticker is super smooth (GPU-powered) and quite flexible. You can add one or more entries, including static texts and RSS feeds.

    You also have a few customization options:

    - scrolling speed (in seconds edge-to-edge)
    - font type
    - font styling, color & transparency
    - background color & transparency

    You can also have more than 1 ticker on the same Show, it works great!

    You will now have the ability to add Playlist as items in other Playlists.

    Please note that this feature will be part of our new subscription plans, which will be announced shortly and enforced by end of Q1-2018. Until then, you can use this feature for free!

  11. Emergency Alerting - scripted alerts with audio

    Emergency Notifications / Alerts.
    Ability to have a set of scripted notifications (with a sound) that can be triggered via either a local http GET or an API call to YoDeck.
    eg "ALERT - Shelter in place", "FIRE - Prepare to evacuate" etc etc

    We now fully support all the Emergency notifications you may need! You can use the Emergency Alerts feature across all Yodeck Plans and you can use it either as a standalone way to broadcast alerts, or combined with your CAP-enabled monitoring system, like Alertus, PunchAlert and others. CAP is a standard API, so you can also code your own API integration!

  12. Asset Expiration

    I realize this has been submitted before (goo.gl/hblJRN), but after talking through the issue with support I was encouraged to submit it again for a second look.

    It would be extremely helpful to have expiration dates for assets. I understand YoDeck's push is for this to happen through Schedules. As a user I would make use of Schedules to push Shows at certain times of day or cycle in seasonal Shows (such as a Christmas-themed variant). However, with the amount of assets we potentially need to change, Schedules do not seem to be a sustainable solution.

    Our organization has many…

  13. Instagram Social Wall for posts tagged to a location or selected hashtags.

    A social wall widget for Instagram would be a great feature. It would be nice to pull from users Instagram photos which are location tagged to the outlet or that use particular hashtags.

    Dropbox Playlists are now available for all accounts!

    When adding a new Playlist, you now have the option to create a Playlist linked to a folder in your Dropbox! Items you place in that folder are automatically synced. After the items finish uploading, it might take 5-20 minutes to see the changes on your screen, depending on the site and type of your content (we convert them to make sure it works on your screen).

    You can use all file types supported by Yodeck, including Images, Videos, Documents and Audio files.

    You can read more here: https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/6.4+Dropbox+Playlist

    Enjoy and make sure you send over feedback to our support team!

  16. WIFI - on site manual choosing by client or technician

    Option to manually enter WIFI name and password directly to "Player". This would be really appreciated.

    e.g.: Client connects keyboard and mouse. After pressing some keyboard shortcut(e.g. ALT+W) graphic window will pop up and allow to choose wifi and set password.

    This long-awaited feature is now available as “Workspaces” in our Enterprise subscription plan!

    You are able to “move” any item in the Yodeck Portal (Media, Playlists, Monitors, etc) to a Workspace, and then assign Users with specific access to each Workspace. This way, you are able to structure your access control in any way you want and make sure Users have the access they only need.

    Check it out, all Plans (incl. Enterprise) are completely free for 1 Monitor!

  18. Remote shell / reboot

    It would be great to have remote access to the pi OS via the web portal (piSignage supports it).

    Sometimes I need to reboot, or remotely shut down, and there's no way at the moment.

    Users now have a “Reboot” and “Shutdown” action within the Monitor details.

    We still do not provide remote shell, but it is possible to do so. If you think there is a need for that, please post a new suggestion on the forum.

  19. Twitter widget?

    Is there a plan to add social media widgets? I saw someone post an idea for a widget store but if a default twitter widget were available that could be very useful. Mentions on one display and a complete twitter feed on the other would be ideal.

    Starting today, we will shipping out our newest Yodeck 4K Player, based on the Raspberry Pi 4 hardware! With the Raspberry Pi 4, we fully support 4K resolution, and soon we will also support 4K video decoding!

    On Thursday Nov 7th 2019, we are updating our Yodeck Portal, so that users can choose between the standard Yodeck 4K Player (RPi4) with 1GB of RAM or the 4GB version that allows for more complex layouts and heavy data web dashboard! Check it out on Thursday!
