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 have been working on our Web Player, a new way to view content playback right inside your browser. But first, we will use this engine for providing a preview.
This new Web Player will work exactly like the hardware Player for the vast majority of cases. The only major difference is that many Web Pages inside your content and playlist will not work correctly. But all other Media, including Video, Images, Audio, Documents and most basic Widgets, will work just fine.
Before releasing this, we will first use it to provide playback preview for Playlists and Layouts, so that you can check out right inside your browser how these will look like before pushing to your player network. We hope to get it on production with the release schedule for June 19th.
Please, do leave a comment on the idea to provide feedback on this update: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815/suggestions/38276134
This is must !
I'd also like a preview of what my widget will look like, similar to the previews of emergency alerts.
This idea needs to be considered!
