Powerpoint Presentation

I have noticed that when you import a powerpoint presentation you are not able to import the Powerpoint as written. Such as when a slide transitions from one to another. (example: some one has written a powerpoint to where each point comes up on the same slide after selecting next slide.) Hey Bryan, This is for MediaShout 7, correct? If so, this is true. When you bring it in, you can then apply those same transitions within MediaShout. I believe they are working to improve this as we move forw...

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.

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 ...

Script Editing Clarity

When we build a song script, for instance, the worship leader will sometimes change the order even Sunday morning(!). Butt it is difficult to see the marker for moving cues. It would help a lot if there was a more pronounced marker. Hey Alan, Just to be sure, this is for MediaShout 7? -Ryan Sorry - yes. We're on 7.2.2 Alan, Great. I will pass this along to the team to see if the Red dot can be made brighter or to look for other ways to make this more pronounced. -Ryan

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?

Line spacing less than 1

Would it be possible to allow for a line spacing of less than 1, or maybe even allowing us to type in a custom number? There are times when we want to fit as much onto a page while still keeping a large text size. Even at a line spacing of 1, there is still a lot of open space between lines that we could utilize. Hey Adam, This is for MediaShout 7, right? I have had another customer ask for this also. So, the Team is already aware and are looking to see if this is something that can be added! ...

Add capability to put linked text boxes on text cues

I think what is requested in suggestion line is what is needed. It seems to be much more difficult to create a multipage text cue in MS7 than in MS6. We use many multipage text cues, and the process to create them is usually: Create first page, paste all the text into the text box on that page (in MS6, multiple pages are created automatically when there is wrapping), then edit the pages using page breaks to do appropriate pagination. And, apply common formatting to all pages as needed. Hey D...

MS7 special text box has next line of song input like it did in ms6 Also would like to be able to add more prebuilt codes into the special text box. Not just song title and copyright and writer.

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...

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...

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
