Introduction

With our latest feature, you will be able to display your Dropbox content (images, videos, and documents) directly to your TV screen using the Yodeck player. The only thing you have to do is to upload the content of your choice to a specific folder on your Dropbox account, and the Yodeck player will automatically display this content. There is no need to log in to your Yodeck account, no need to make any other changes; the player will automatically handle new content.

Limits

  • Each Dropbox account can be paired only with one Yodeck account. You cannot use the same Dropbox account for multiple Yodeck accounts.
  • To use more than one Dropbox accounts within the same Yodeck account, you need to be on the Enterprise plan.

Supported Formats

How to add content to your Dropbox playlist

A new folder will be created under your Dropbox account and, more specifically, in the Apps section. This folder is called Yodeck Digital Signage, and it is the default folder where your players will "pull" the images from it.

Feel free to add as many images, documents, or videos as you like. Note that the files you add to a Dropbox playlist will be played back in alphabetical order.
