FYI: I've moved my repository. The repository should update itself, but if you have any issues you can re-install my repository with the latest link.

Can't seem to get plugin slideshow to work in Helix 14 on Windows 7. It was working great in Gotham 13 and I upgraded in place. Now errors out when invoked after selecting 500px or Google image with a file not found message. I have uninstalled, rebooted, etc, but no change. Slideshows work fine when invoked as Picture plugins. Anyone else seen this?

UPDATE: May have been incorrect that slideshows work ok as Picture plugins. Helix 14 seems to be freezing when trying to start them that way. One I am most interested in getting to work is 500px.

UPDATE: Loaded plugin from ruuk repo.... works perfectly. Sorry for missing this from earlier posts.

Hey, the plugin is not working for me since updating to helix for some reason, more specifically i can not select source folder its stuck on this screen.
I believe this is part of the log with error:

05:29:28 T:140347879528192 NOTICE: -->Python Interpreter Initialized<--
05:29:28 T:140347879528192 NOTICE: screensaver.plugin.slideshow: Version: 0.0.17b

05:29:29 T:140348979324800 ERROR: CGUIDialogFileBrowser::GetDirectory(addons://sources/) failed

Here is full log its going to be needed.

P.S: I've installed plugin from your repo so it should be the lastest one and im running latest openelec 5.0.0

You need to have one or more image plugins installed, since this only works with image plugins.

It would be great to get this functionality; all my pics on picasaweb are in date based folders. The only thing keeping me from using this super plugin!

Hi ruuk.

I really enjoy watching my photos come alive on my TV, when the screensaver takes over and I use the Pan-and-zoom function to get the photos to seem more alive.

I have one request though, could you add a setting to allow me to choose another resampling method? Or is this done somewhere outside the screensaver? I think the images would look better using a more computational-expensive resampling. I briefly took a glance at the source but couldn't find any calls to a resampling setting.

Regards, Casper

If I recall correctly (since I adapted the actual display stuff from the slideshow screensaver I'm not as familiar with it), it uses the skin animation to do all of that, and there is no way to change the method it uses to render it. It's possible Kodi has some settings for that, but I don't know.

I had a feeling that it was out of the hands of the plugins, thanks for your reply.

Can you point to which part of Kodi I should investigate, to find a way to change the resampling?

Hi Ruuk,

Thank you for this simple and elegant screensaver. I am using it at home and in our bar.
I was wondering if it would be difficult to implement a feature to have an rss feed shown in the bottom, like the rss feed on the home screen of Kodi.

Greetings from Bali
