Release Picture Slideshow Screensaver
Bleh, the log files cycled out. I did have debug turned on, I don't recall seeing that.

I can also report that the last 5 times I tried the add-on functioned perfectly. It was only yesterday that it was failing almost 100% of the time. If I see the error happen again, I'll definitely look for that and post back here.

Hi,
Since a few days, the screensaver display video fanarts instead of my photos located on a NAS.
I already had the problem a few times, and rebuilding the index always solved it.
But it seems you have remove the index build option in advanced settings?
Why this choice? Any other way to rebuild it?

Here is the options i've got :

I've deleted the e0e722a38d8d8803fb60138f15fa5301 file, launch again the screensaver, and it has rebuild the index and populated the e0e722a38d8d8803fb60138f15fa5301 file, and now i've got my photos!!

Cool. I don't know why it stopped working however.

And I have a question then : if I add new photos to the used dir, how can i rebuild the index without removing the file?

the cache is now automatically recreated while the screensaver is running.
however, i just noticed there's a bug in the code, so it's not working properly atm.
thanx for the report!

probably kodi couldn't get a list of images from your nas when the screensaver started.
perhaps it was down or the request timed out.

That did it for me too !!!

Question, what happens if we don't check "Create Image Index" in Settings ? Is the screensaver just more ressource hungry but all else is the same ?

with the option disabled, the screensaver will scan the selected folder for images each time it starts.
in case you have a lot of images this may take a while and will delay the screensaver from starting.
(it will display the spinning circle while it's busy)


but as mentioned above, this setting is no longer present.
the addon will now handle it itself.

I have version 2.1.9 of the add-on and "Create Image Index" is still in the add-on settings". I Just looked and there is not update available yet from the KODI settings interface.

Yep you are right. I just checked... Guess I'll wait till Jarvis is out (and in osmc)

Thanks a bunch !

Would it be possible to add function to exclude hidden (i.e. .thumb and similar) folders?
Or even better (but more complicated of course) to be able to exclude folders by user selection...

it's been requested a few times to be able to exclude folders,
so i guess i'll have to look into it :-)

as been suggested here: 1574750 (post)
i'll probably use the kodi advancedsettings.xml file to check for folders that should be excluded.
