Changing the screen resolution

The Yodeck Player (based on Raspberry Pi) automatically detects on start-up the "preferred" resolution of the connected monitor (usually, its native resolution). Sometimes, the resolution might not be detected properly. This might happen if you power up your Player without a screen connected, or if after a power failure the Player starts before the screen has the time to power up and report properly. In this case, the standard VGA resolution of 640x480 or 1024x768 is used.

Try rebooting your Player, and the Player will start displaying the content using the TV's maximum supported resolution.

To select your player's desired resolution automatically on boot, you can edit the below option to your player's Sound/Display tab.



resolution 4K


The latest Yodeck player supports a 4K resolution. If your TV screen supports 4K resolution it will automatically start displaying on that resolution.
