Planning Center Song Arrangements

I love the ability to import songs from Planning Center and link songs within mediashout. However, one of the biggest issues we run into with this integration is the lack of support for the different arrangements that Planning Center supports. When a song is imported to Mediashout, MS only uses the parent song record and not the individual arrangements. There are different versions of popular songs that might use slightly different lyrics or verses, and it would be nice for MS to recognize these...

Larger thumbnails in Presenter View

It is great that we can now change the size of the thumbnails in Presenter View in MS7. However, the largest size still seems to be too small to read for some of our volunteers. Is it possible to make the thumbnails zoom in to an even larger size?

Script Control To Toggle Remote

I love the toggle remote feature. Our new pastor likes to control a powerpoint during his sermon, and the toggle remote feature keeps the DSAN remote from accidentally triggering cues during the rest of the service while it's in his pocket/etc. What would be incredible is if, instead of going into the menus during his sermon and toggling remote - then needing to remember to toggle it off after the sermon (I am putting comment reminders for the operator in the script right now), we could instead ...

Export Cues as Graphics Files (.jpg)

In MS5, we were able to export the entire script as .jpg files. This allowed us to create lower thirds for live broadcast from the original script, then export them for use with WireCast. No way to do that now, so we are just staying with MS5 on our streaming computer for the time-being. If you have PowerPoint on the computer with MediaShout you can try running CUE2PPT11 and converting slides to PowerPoint then in PowerPoint export to JPG. We do not have PowerPoint but I think it will work. ht...

Manage Bibles

I see that all the possible Bibles are in the list, WOW! Over half of these Bibles will never be used by us so V7 needs to let the User manage which Bibles are visible. In V6 the User could Add or Delete Bibles which was great, a nice short list to pick from each service.

Bring Back Drag-And-Drop to create new cues

It would be extremely helpful if MS7 brought back the ability to drag an image, video, or other file into the script and automatically create a cue, rather than having to create a blank cue then add the media. Thanks! YES PLEASE!!!

Live Camera Integration

Hello, we have an IP camera which we use for showing the congregation the children's story. Can you add a feature (something like the live stream integration that is coming out) which would allow me to link with the IP cam, (and possibly HDMI or USB video inputs) and show the video fired as a cue?

Folders in the Library

Being able to categorize images and videos into folders instead of scrolling through them all would be a nice feature. Hey Shannon, Thanks for your request! I can confirm that we do plan to add Folders and Sub-Folders to the Library section. As you said, this will make it much eaier to organize this library section. We hope to have that in an update coming soon. Thanks! -Ryan

Have the Sermon Builder create cues in the open script.

It would be nice if the Sermon Builder would create the cues in the open script instead of creating a whole new script. Or maybe give the option to do one or the other. We have a script that we use from week to week that has all our basic slides in it and it adds time to copy and past. Even if you could drag and drop between scripts that would be nice as well. Hey Shannon, Thanks for your request! I have passed this along to the Team. I think this is a great idea and would love to see it added ...

Bible App Events integration

With the new plug in section in ms7, and the growing number of churches using the Events feature in the Bible App, being able to integrate that, so church members can get the link drift from the system would be cool.

Glow effect for text

It would be nice to have the choice to add a glow around the text as an alternative to text outline, shadow, or text box coloring to enhance text visibility, with the ability to change the glow's size, color and opacity. It would make it easier to blend in with the background while still highlighting the text. Hey Kris! Thank you for your suggestion! I'll make sure to pass this along to the Team to see if this is something that can be added into a future build. Thanks so much! -Ryan

Song Tokens should remove the number if there is only one of that type

When displaying song tokens for the song, such as "verse 1" and "chorus 1," Mediashout should only display only "Verse" and "Chorus" if there is only 1 verse and 1 chorus in the song. Hey Jeremiah, Thank you for your submission! I see what you mean. I will pass this along to our Development Team to see if this is something that can be added. I do know that there are other higher priority Features/Upgrades that we would want to accomplish before we add this, but it could be something very easy t...

Guides in the Editor (Text, Bible, Lyric)

It would be extremely helpful to be able to place guidelines while editing text, Bible and lyric cues that persisted across all pages, similar to the ruler guides in PowerPoint, Photoshop and Illustrator. Right now there are "smart guides" that allow you to (sort of) align objects to other objects or to the center of the page, but these seem to have a little play in them (i.e. an object will snap to a smart guide but you can still move it a few pixels before it will stop you from moving it compl...

Diversify Song Database

Hi I'm a user at a predominantly african-american church and the only issue I have with the system is that any songs I try to find lyrics for by african-american artist are not in the song database, causing me to have to type, or drag-and-drop from the internet into Mediashout. We do a variety of songs from all christian artist, but it's a little taxing to have to repeat this process for non-K-Love type songs. I don't know if your database is based on submission by the artist or selection from...

Websocket interface

i still using showcockpit.com and they create interfase for many software, the only they need are websocket to make the connection. This integration allow automate the light, lyrics, the band (using ableton or reaper) and the soundboard. thanks! Hey Leandro, We don't currently interface with them and I don't believe that this is something we have planned. I will definitely pass this along to our Team for consideration, however. Thanks so much! God Bless! -Ryan

Change BG > For This Entire Script - Needs "Confirmation" prompt

If you are going to "Change BG" "For This Entire Script" I would like a "Confirmation" prompt ("This will change the BG for ALL CUES -- do you really want to do this?"). It is not immediately obvious that you've done this accidentally until you move to another Cue and see that you applied a change to the ENTIRE script. Then you can only use UNDO to get things back to where they were, which may mean undoing a lot of other edits to the last Cue you just edited. Thanks Beverly, I have added this ...

Ability to Export Lyrics and Bible Cues from a Script to a Text File

Add the ability to export Lyrics and Bible Cues in a script to a single text file for review by Worship Leaders. We have a number in our congregation who are visually impaired. They have the ability to create Braille documents but we will need to provide them the text. Being able to export an entire script as text (with an option for repeats etc.) will be huge for them. Hey Mike! This is awesome! We are working on some tools to do exactly what you describe. Stay with us as we work through t...

Lyric search to ignore punctuation

Please could the search line in add lyrics ignore punctuation? Currently "Come let us join" will return no results if the song is in as "Come, let us join" and vice versa. This results in frustration when searching, and sometimes songs being added multiple times because the song is not found. Thank you Hi, I apologize for the delayed response. I reached out to our Team and was able to verify that this is something that our Developers are currently looking into. We hope to be able to add this...

Shuffle option for audio playlist script control

Please consider adding a shuffle option to a play audio playlist script control. Currently you can shuffle tracks in a playlist when playing through the playlist window, but if you insert a script control cue to play a playlist, there appears to be no way to set that playlist to shuffle. This would be very helpful as I have a script template I start with each week for our service, I have added a script control to play a playlist of prelude music before the service, but each time I fire that co...
