You’ll get tons of stock videos you can choose from.

Import media with a URL link

Have you saved media files like images, videos, documents and audio on your own servers? Or did you want to use one of these types of media files from a free stock media site? Bypass the need to first save the media file locally on your computer by simply copying the media file’s URL link. Then paste the web link into Yodeck and you can use that media file as content. How’s that for speedy delivery!

Release Notes

New features

  • Yodeck’s brand new free Video Gallery makes it easier and faster than ever to get great video content up on your screens, in seconds. Simply choose from thousands of free stock videos, by doing a keyword search; just like in our popular Image Gallery. In our free Video Gallery you’ll find free stock videos from a number of services.
  • Also, you can now add media files by simply copying the URL link! Use any image, video, document or audio you’ve saved on your own servers or that you find on free stock media sites, without having to save the media file on your PC first. Just copy the web link to that file and paste it into the Yodeck app.
  • Additionally, the Google Slides Widget lets you display your presentation on screen, in seconds, by simply copy-pasting the link to the Google Slides file in your Google Drive account.

Improvements

  • You can use a 12-hour format in the Calendar Widgets. Simply select that option when adding the widget.
  • When downgrading plans in the Purchasing Wizard, users will see what features they will no longer have access to. This warning makes it easier for users to decide which plan meets their business needs best.
  • You no longer have to click on ‘Get more’ when you want to load more images in the Image Gallery. You’ll see more images load as you scroll down.

Bugs fixed

  • While Date and Time Widgets preload, users saw ‘23:59:59’ appear on their screens until the correct time loaded. We fixed it!
