Setting up a Yodeck Web Player


The Yodeck Web Player offers a useful option for clients who want a solution that requires almost no setup. Think of the Web Player as a way to get Yodeck digital signage on your screens. Specifically, if a device, such as a tablet or PC, has a Chrome-based web browser, including Chrome, Chromium, and Edge, then the Web Player can turn it into a Yodeck-powered digital signage screen. Since no hardware or cables are involved, they must copy the registration number on the screen and paste it into the Yodeck Portal.

There are currently some limitations. These are

  • Currently, we fully support only the below browsers. Of course, soon, we will support all browsers out there.
  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Chromium
  • Incognito Mode is not fully supported and may have some issues. Please do not use an incognito mode to access the Web player.
  • Autoplay with sound is not allowed, so every video (stock, YouTube, Vimeo, or stream) will be played muted.
    • To overcome this, you need to install the PWA. This allows the user to have a desktop shortcut for our web player, plus it will enable autoplay with sound. Please check this article for more details on installing the PWA.
  • Screenshots are not available within the Yodeck platform.
    • To overcome this, you need to install Chrome Extension. This allows the user to have screenshots and display all web pages. Please check this article for more details on installing the Chrome extension.
  • 4K is currently not supported.

Quick troubleshooting steps
