RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - Cray242 - 2013-06-21

Hi.

Please help, I currently get the following error.

I've just switched back from v13 gotham alpha 4 to the latest v12.2 frodo release.

Thanks!

looks like a bad xbmc install.
if reinstalling xbmc doesn't fix it, please provide a full Debug Log

Hi ronie.

Thanks for your response. I did a clean install now and it worked until I installed the 500PX add-on. I removed the add-on and the slideshow is working again.

Hello guys,

i'm having the same problem as Cray242 described but i didn't even upgrade to xbmc 13. I did a upgrade from 12.0 to 12.2 a few days ago and today i recoginzed the screensaver isn't working anymore.

My debug log can be found here http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=30396

I'm running xbmc on a standalone htpc running ubuntu VERSION="13.04, Raring Ringtail" and installed xbmc via the xbmc stable repo:
Code:
#XBMC - stable
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu raring main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu raring main

All other xbmc functionality is working fine Smile

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Erik

the 500PX picture addon (which you have installed as well) is causing issues.
i've just sent the author an email, so hopefully we can resolve this issue soon.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - l0bster - 2013-06-22

Oh... well Smile Great! Thanks for your fast reply! I love your screensaver, continue with this great job Wink


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - ronie - 2013-06-22

an update for the 500px plugin is on it's way.
once you receive this update, the screensaver issue should be solved.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - skimannz - 2013-06-29

Great add-on!

I have tried searching the forum on this issue but have not had any luck, please forgive me if I have missed something. Screensaver does not seem to be able to stream pictures from a upnp server. It allows me to add the upnp folder OK but when the screensaver runs it just shows the waiting circle of dots.

The same upnp folder works OK when running slideshow from the pictures menu.

Is it something I'm doing wrong or a limitation of the add-on? Thanks.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - Robotica - 2013-06-29

Nope.. Xbmc doesn't support pictures over upnp. I don't think current gsoc involves picture / slideshow support over upnp.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - carl1jenn - 2013-07-15

Is there a way to limit what video fan art is displayed? I have a lot of movies rated from G, PG, PG-13,R, etc. some of the video fan art is scary for little kids. An option to only display rated G, PG would be great. If that is possible could a time limit be set so the limiting could only be from like 7am to 7pm?

negative, there's no such feature in the addon.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - CaptainKen - 2013-07-15

The closest you can get would be to create a "custom folder of images".


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - carl1jenn - 2013-07-16

can the custom folder be on an smb share?
