OneDrive Playlist

With our latest feature, you will be able to display content from your OneDrive account (images, videos, and documents) directly to your TV screen using the Yodeck player. The only thing you have to do is 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. There is no need to make any other changes; the player will automatically handle new content.

1. Limitations

  • 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.
  • You need to be on the Enterprise plan to use more than one OneDrive account within the same Yodeck account.

2. Supported File Formats

Pairing your OneDrive with Yodeck

To create a OneDrive playlist, click on the” Add Playlist” button found at the bottom of the Playlists list. In the pop-up window, select “OneDrive” and then click the “Link your OneDrive Account” button to authenticate and give access to your Yodeck account to use a specific folder on your OneDrive account.

After clicking the “Link your OneDrive Account” button, a new tab will open in your browser, asking you to log into your Microsoft account.

After successfully authorizing the Yodeck app, you will view the following window:

Linked OneDrive Playlist Yodeck

Click “Add” and your OneDrive playlist is ready.

OneDrive Playlist Settings

After creating the playlist, you will see some additional configuration options:

  • Type a Name for the playlist and an optional Description for it
  • Enable the” Add black gap between videos” option
    The transition between the two videos right now is gapless. The last video frame will be displayed to have gapless transitions between videos playing back-to-back. If you like to have a 0.5s black gap between the videos, enable the above option on your playlist.
  • Enable Image Transitions
  • Enable Random Playback
  • Set the default Duration for Images & Documents

Linked OneDrive Account: The OneDrive account with which your Yodeck account is paired.

Selected Folder: The folder where the player will pull the images, documents, or videos and display them on the TV screen.

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 possible. Note that the files you add to a OneDrive playlist will be played back in alphabetical order.
