I love this plugin and it works great in PM skin. But I have started using Rapier and it just instantly crashes XBMC when run.

Could you tell what requirements this needs of a skin so that it works. I will then mod Rapier to make it compliant.

I did manage to get it to not crash my removing id="1" in the main.xml but although it did not crash completely it never got past the spinning loading dialog and I had to force quit XBMC.

LOG

Thanks in advance.

I don't have time to look into this, sorry.
You can try renaming main.xml to something like The_Big_Picture-main.xml and change references to that file in the .py files.

Otherwise create a ticket on http://xbmc-addons.googlecode.com and cc me. I'll look into it after the new year.

I know that you probably don't have time for it at the moment... But I thought I'd make you aware of another photo-blog similar to Big Picture. (and Big Shots)

+1 Please add it to Addon-Manager Big Grin
Its one of my most-used xbmc-plugins

+1 I Like this plugin also


please can someone fix it for Dharma?

Bump! Sad

Hi,

I asked rwparris2 and he gave me the permission to port his plugin to be Dharma-comptabile (thx!).

I finished the port and requested a svn pull in the official addons repo.

If they don't find any problems/bugs in my port it will be available in the near future through the addon manager.

I also plan to update this plugin to support other websites.

When it is in the main repo I will start a new release-thread and there you can make feature suggestions like websites you whish to be integrated.

regards,
sphere

Hi,

This Addon is now available through the addon manager - you can find it here:
Get Addons -> xbmc.org addons -> picture addons -> "The Big Picture".

thanx sphere!

IMHO, this plugin is a great way to view this great pictures on a big display.
I really missed it the last months.

nice script. i would recommend some visual indicator that you can click to enter the collections. actually took me a min or two to realize it Smile


- sphere - 2010-10-11 10:33

Hi,

at the moment i am thinking about how to integrate other similar nice photojournalism sites...

At least 95% of the thanks should go to rwparris2, he wrote this plugin/script - I only ported it, created a new logo and fixed 1 or 2 small issues...

But, i think too that this is one of the best look and feel addons Smile

@Spiff: Do you have any special idea how? Just add the text "you can also click to enter the album" to the description text?

regards


- spiff - 2010-10-11 10:54

yeah that would work. alternatively a graphical hint could do, like overlaying a folder icon in a corner or something like that. or maybe simply prefixing the description with an 'album:' could be enough of a cue. just some random ideas Smile

Awesome!
