Live Screenshots

If you have already registered a Yodeck player to your account, the Yodeck player will send a fresh screenshot to your account every 30-40 seconds. In that way, you can check what is actually being displayed on the TV screen.
 
Bear in mind that when you log out from your account, the player will send 1 screenshot per hour to save some bandwidth! When you log in again to your account and navigate to the monitor's view, as shown below, the player will start generating screenshots again every 30-40 seconds.
