    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    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.

  5. Face Book videos?

    Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.

    We supported x86 until Jan 2017. Adoption was really, really low, since a) we provide the Player for free to direct customers, and b) using the Raspberry Pi saves you so much on electricity, recovering the cost of the RPi within a couple of years.

    We are planning to develop soon an HTML5-based player, so this could be easily wrapped to work on x86 hardware.

    Stay tuned for updates.

  7. Support video with an alpha channel (transparency) so that one video can frame some other content

    I want to be able to use one video with an alpha channel as a "frame" and overlay it on top of another video that is the main focus.

    For now, I'm simply layering the one video on top of the other, but that means that there are really hard edges at the edge of the video.

    First, we are planning to support multiple videos playback (a whole different request).

    Now, concerning alpha-channel in videos, I think this is a firmware issue of the Raspberry Pi. Thee is a way to have a mask, but again no alpha channel beyond that mask.

  8. Event-Date

    I use Yodeck to show upcoming events. The TVs are showing the eventflyers with date on the flyer.

    I would like to make flyers without date and set the date in the yodeck-app, so it is displayed together with the flyer. And when date is over, it is not shown in playlist anymore or is shown with the next date set for that event.

    That would be a nice upgrade.

    There is a way to do that already with image-based flyers. To do this, you will be using 3 features:
    1) Yodeck in-app image editing with layers
    2) Expiration dates for Media
    3) [optionally] Tag-based Playlists (available in Pro Plan)

    So, try doing the following:
    - Upload your flyers as images
    - Edit your flyer using the Pixie editor (in-app editor) and add the date as a text layer, and save
    - Add the valid period for the event as starting/expiring dates in the Image details
    - Add a Tag named EventFlyers
    - Say a flyer is for a recurring event. You can duplicate this Media (click the duplicate button), edit the date text using Pixie with the new dates, and again enter them in the starting/expiring date. Make sure the Tag EventFlyers is still there.
    - Create a Tag-based Playlist that uses all Media with the EventFlyers Tag.
    -…

  10. Ability to adjust the black gap time been slides.

    I find the black gap between videos or images is too short. I've been adding in 2 second black slides to help but it would be nice if we could customize the length of time between for the black gap instead of only having it preset.

    The duration of the black gap is not entirely under our control right now. Your request is reasonable though.

    We are planning a major internal change to the Player’s software that will allow us finer control of the playback procedure. I will leave this request open so that I can update it if we get any update from the dev team if it is feasible or not.

  11. Auto-import of UI JSON schema

    To simplify widget installation, it would be nice if the back-end could look for a json file (maybe ui.json or schema.json) in the widget's zip file, and import it automatically into the UI configuration area if it exists.

    Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).

    I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.

    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.

  13. Display a conference schedule.

    Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?

    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.

  14. 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!
