Setting up a Windows player with the Yodeck Software

Introduction

You are in the right spot if you need to create your player based on Windows using the Yodeck software.

Remember, though, that this process requires some basic IT skills.


Setup


Step 1 – Get the registration code

1) Go to https://packages.yodeck.com/y/app/windows/1.149.0.exe


2) When you download the exe, make sure you press to keep in Chrome downloader


3) Once you click keep, go to show more -> Keep anyway


4) Downloads -> Run exe -> More options -> Run anyway
5) Kiosk Setup opens -> Install Kiosk


6) Set a desired password to move in and out of the Kiosk user -> Click Install, and wait for everything to finish.


7) Once everything is done, click Next


8) Finally, click Restart

9) The device will always start in Kiosk User (to get out of it, use Ctrl+Alt+Delete).

10) A 9-digit code will be displayed on the screen when the device restarts.


Step 2 – Registering a Yodeck Windows Player on your Account

After seeing the registration code on your screen, you must register the player to your Yodeck Account.

  1. Login to your Yodeck Account and Go to the “Monitors” section.
  2. Create a new Monitor entry by clicking the “+Add Monitor” button.
  3. A new window will pop up. Choose the Windows Player Player option.
  4. In the “Registration Code” field, type in the 9-digit registration code you see on your TV screen and click the “Save” button.
  5. After a minute or so, your player should register with your Yodeck Account, and it should start showing the assigned content on the screen.
