6.6 OneDrive Playlist

Introduction

With our latest feature, you will be able to display your OneDrive 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 OneDrive 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

  • The OneDrive playlist feature works with personal OneDrive accounts; business OneDrive accounts will be supported in a future release.
  • Each OneDrive account can be paired only with one Yodeck account. You cannot use the same OneDrive account for multiple Yodeck accounts.
  • To use more than one external storage (OneDrive, Dropbox) account within the same Yodeck account, you need to be on the Enterprise plan.

How to add content to your OneDrive playlist

A new folder will be created under your OneDrive 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 OneDrive playlist will be played back in alphabetical order.
