Download manually from my link. I am not yet familiar with pushing and git.

Probably, I will contact Ronnie and ask him some questions.

Samba (the linux implementation of SMB) apparently has some high protocol overhead, so trying to access 6000 files was then very slow.

NFS is better, I just posted over in the support thread with some more details.

To use NFS, I enabled it on the NAS and then changed settings as follows:
Code:
<setting id="image_path" value="nfs://192.168.1.1/volume1/Photo/" />

Worked first time except the synology stores thumbnails so I tweaked the script to ignore "@eaDir" files/folders.

Time to load 6000 images as follows:

SMB (Windows7, 15.1, wireless 802.11n) : 2.4s
Samba (AFTV, 14.2, wireless 2.4GHz): 31.21s
NFS (Without @eaDir fix, 14.2, wireless 2.4GHz): 93.78s
NFS (With @eaDir fix, 14.2, wireless 2.4GHz): 4.59s

I will post an updated screensaver again soon when I add some other useful features.

Hi, thanks for your help on this addon but how did you do that ?

Best regards.

I specifically wrote some python code to ignore them. It is not configurable.

I get this error trying to use my kodi picture library which points to a picture share on my windows server(SMB).

Any thoughts?

Oh this is on a Nvidia Shield TV.

I'm guessing this addon is broken since no one is responding to the errors it is throwing off.
