it's currently not possible, but i'll check if it's easy to add such an option.

Hi Ronie,

I have been running the script.picture.slideshow that you helped me create on a raspberry pi 3 model B. Some of my images are about 7 MB to 8 MB (2560 x 1440 )in size and I turned the debug logging on as you suggested and it seems like for these large images the script fails to allocate buffers properly. I have some questions as well.

1) can the script.picture.slideshow only handle images up to a certain resolution/dimension or size? is that why the buffer allocating is failing?
2) For these large image files, in certain monitors the images seem to be slightly zoomed and off of the screen.

How could we possibly fix the buffer allocation issue ?

I am linking the debug log file here for you to look at.

https://paste.ubuntu.com/23220488/

Thank you so much for your help!

Sincerely,
kxb3292

1) the script doesn't handle images, kodi does. the script only creates a simple picture playlist file and asks kodi to display the images one at a time.
i have no idea if there's a limitation on the pi, but for kodi it shouldn't matter.

2) if the resolution of the image doesn't match the resolution of the screen, then either parts of the image will be cropped, or black bars alongside the image will be shown.
it depends on whether you've enabled 'scale images fullscreen' in the screensaver settings

@ronie,

Thank you for the answers. I have disabled 'scale images fullscreen', should this be enabled or disabled for best output/results?



sincerely,

depends on your personal preference.

if you enable 'scale image fullscreen' it will fill your entire screen with as much of the image as possible, the some parts my fall off the screen.

if scaling is off, the entire image will be shown on screen, but there may be black bars on each side if the picture resolution doesn't match the screen resolution.

Hi , this plugin is really great !! Really realiable for now.

I'm currently displaying thousands of picture form an owncloud Webdav folder and it works great.

However We'd like to mix pictures from several webdav folders , is this something easy to do ?

i've checked, but it's not possible to be able to select multiple folders in the settings of an addon.
